I trust that Steve Clemons, pride and joy of the New America Foundation, won't object if I thieve this adorable picture of his dogs, Oakley (left) and Annie. I grew up with spaniels and have no idea about Weimeraners at all. Are they loopy and excessively highly-strung? Or are they as beautifully melancholy as they look? Explain, people, please.

PS: Now that I think of it, the Weimeraner is a cousin of the (regal) Vizsla, is it not?
