8 – Why Are You a Weimaraner?

Weimaraners, why are you a dog?! This week Caitlyn will drive you crazy with the pronunciation of the breed’s name, and also starts out with a quick fact about Boxers she completely forgot to talk about in the actual Boxer episode (sorry about that). Kyle reads some listener mail at the top of the episode.

Weimaraners have a very distinct coat and color, which comes with a couple of cool nicknames. They also have a fascinating history when it comes to the development and dissemination of the breed throughout Germany and then eventually to the United States. Caitlyn and Kyle also make a very convincing pitch for Brad Pitt to be on the show, so if anyone knows his agent please be sure to get them in contact with us.

Outro song is “Little Grey Ghost” by Mik Henderson.

3 – Why Are You an Irish Setter?

Irish setters, why are you a dog? On this weeks show (which thankfully wasn’t delayed by Hurricane Irma) Caitlyn describes the convoluted breeding history of the Irish Setter and makes a really bad Shawshank Redemption joke that doesn’t land. Caitlyn and Kyle also marvel about how bird hunting worked before guns, Caitlyn still can’t get her dates right and is extra salty about dog shows now.

We’re currently taking dog requests and will start doing request dogs after episode 5, so be sure to send them in to us at whyareyouadog@gmail.com.

Outro song is Point and Freeze (Irish Setter) by Nancy Simmonds off her album Musical Tails, 3rd Litter.
