"Munsterlander maniac"

This is Lexa, ever ready with her ball beside her!! As Gordon is gardening she constantly brings him the ball, barks at him, until he throws it for her, and then repeats - over and over again! Gordon just "absent mindedly" obliges!! However, even Lex gets tired on a hot day and then takes time out to lie in the shadow of the pampas grass.......... ball by her side of course!! as soon as she is ready the "game" will start again......

"Munsterlander on Show"

This is Bosch, he won Best in Show at the Large Munsterlander Club Championship show in June, unfortunately on the day my camera work was somewhat hampered by having four dogs at the show! So at Leeds I asked Sherrill to stand Bosch up so I could get a picture I was happy with - I think this fits the bill!!!

"Munsterlander in water"

Hardly an unusual title is it? Being in water is one of the things a munsterlander does best! and this is Ben, belonging to David Bishop again - in this recent hot weather real walks are too hot - so a cooling lake or stream is always a welcome diversion!! Ben, and kind owner David Bishop, is keen to promote the show to be held in aid of Large Munsterlander Rescue - for details please go to the rescue website (link to the right)

"Munsterlander Rescue"

This is Ben, the Large Munsterlander belonging to David Bishop. Ben is a "rescue boy" who once found himself in need of a good home - our breed rescue then rehomed him with Mr. Bishop, who has had experience of Munsterlanders..... seems to have been an excellent match!! Ben is keen to call attention for the need for breed rescue, after all where would he be without them? - and would like you all to look at the rescue site - you will find details of an upcoming exemption show being held on August Bank Holiday, hopefully Ben will be there himself!!

"Munsterlander Bouquet"

Had this by e-mail today and as was such a lovely thought decided to include it on Daily Dog... this is from Lori in the U.S., "Happy Birthday from Desi & Lori!! Sounds like you had a good start to your special day! Here's to the rest of the day going well for you! I went out and took a picture of Desi in my flower garden--consider it a long-distance bouquet with wishes for a Happy Birthday and many more to come!" Thank You very much Lori, and yes had a great day, and plan a great evening tomorrow too!!!!!

"Munsterlanders, Scenery, Snow and 2 Ponies!"

I meant to "move on" tonight and do something totally different - but then on our other blog Jenny mentioned how much she enjoyed this series of pics..... so - sent out for a second pony!! so there you have it - scenery, munsters, and horses/ponies - ideal thoughts in this weather!!

Munsterlanders, Scenery, Snow, and a pony!"

Well what more could you want? Wonderful scenery, snow, two beautiful Munsterlanders, Ester and Enga, and a pony! This is from Maria in Sweden, shall we all book our tickets now?

"Snow Munsters"

As we are all struggling in a heat wave and trying to find somewhere to walk our dogs without them becoming overheated, or covered in grass seeds etc., etc, Thought I would put up the "ultimate" in dog walking areas/facilities!! These are Maria's munsters, Ester and Enga enjoying the snow in Sweden last winter........

"Munsterlander Look-out"

This is Freya, way back when she lived in Sweden! Poor Freya does not appreciate the heat of the moment! bet she wishes she could lie down in the snow - come to think of it - sure a lot of us are wishing that!!

"Munsterlander Roll"

Another one specially for Jenny, and all of you feeling the heat! Never saw the attraction in rolling in snow myself - but am coming around to the idea!! so hot everywhere today! This is Ester and Enga sat looking pretty - and Freya - enjoying a roll in the snow in Sweden. Ester and Enga belong to Maria, and Freya now lives in England with Pat.

"Munsterlander cooling off"

Seems it is hot pretty much everywhere, this is Dixon, cooling down after a walk - Dixon lives with owner Mari in Finland! It is very hot there too just now, so after a trip out he settled down in the cool grass with plenty of water and a cold, wet towel - seems like a good idea to me!! must go and try it!!!!!!!!!

"Munsterlanders for Jenny!"

This photo is for Jenny, it is Enga and Freya (yes Pat's Freya) playing in the snow in Sweden. Jenny and Freya have a lot in common - (shhhhhhh now!) - both hate the heat!! (what did you think I was going to say?) Spoke to Jenny earlier today and she said "put something looking cool on daily dog!" this cold enough Jenny????

"Munsterlander eating habits"

This is Brook - one of our large Munsterlanders - proving that ice-creams are not just for humans! She is rather fond of ice cream - and it has become a bit of a tradition at shows at the moment - Brook has to have her ice-cream (with Rumour it was a strawberry milkshake - McDonalds of course!) seems Brook is more easily pleased.....

"Munsterlander cool"

This is Jesse, the large Munsterlander from the Netherlands belonging to Cindy. Apparently it is 33 degrees C over there too, and everyone is looking to keeping their dogs cool... I did wonder at first why the blankets on the side - then I realised must be to stop the Jack Russell from puncturing it with his claws!

Monday, July 17, 2006

"Munsterlanders and Technology"

This is Jesse, the Large Munsterlander from the Netherlands, she belongs to Cindy and her partner, and once again proves that Large Munsterlanders are happy in any situation - as long as it is with you!! Jesse seems quite content in this weird position!!

"Munsterlanders doing the Gardening"

Clearly a hot day and looking for some shade - Mungo is digging, Molly is keeping watch!! "Hurry up Mungo or they will catch us" seems to be what she is saying! However, the muddy nose gives it away that not only Mungo has been digging..... The two munsters loved and proudly owned by Zoe Procommenos.

"Sleepy Munsterlander"

This was taken yesterday at Paignton Champ. Show. It is Dylan, belonging to Sharon Miller.
Dylan usually comes along to the shows as "NFC" or "Not for Competition" thesedays, he enjoys his days out (well, he would not want to be left out!) but likes to take a nap - is this a case of "wake me up when it is all over"?? A lovely boy and a show would not be a show without Dyl!!

"Munsterlander hide & seek"

It could only be Mia, couldn't it? If any dog was to be found in a ditch getting dirty, it would have to be her! She might carry her Show title for beauty & conformation but you'd never think that when she's seen wallowing full stretch in a puddle!

"Where's the Munsterlander?"

When Elle's away, Christine can play! I have the reins tonight although I've spent half the day wondering what photo to use & a witty quip to go with it. So here is Dodge, one from a trio of Rhodesian Ridgeback's belonging to my friend Alison. Something has obviously caught his eye (He has remarkably good taste!) but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what!

"Munsterlander Comforter"

You are never alone with a munsterlander!! This is Enga again (I think! - or could be Ester) one of the two large munsterlanders belonging to Maria in Sweden. So, once again, think we have shown that Munsterlanders are definitely the same the world over........

Tuesday, July 11, 2006

"Considerate Munsterlander"

Yup, Munsterlanders are the same the World over! willing to fetch and carry whatever your need!! This is Enga (I think!) in Sweden (of that I am sure!) belonging to Maria Forss. Not sure if Enga thinks it is the human in the bed - or the cat on the bed - that needs the toilet roll - but either way she is ready to take on the Andrex puppy....................... isn't she cute?

"Hunting Munsterlander"

Bet you all looked at the title and thought, "oh no another pic of Rumour!" very, very similar! but this is Desi - in the U.S., just goes to prove that munsters are alike the world over, and with an overwhelming love of hunting, and just generally loving life!! More from Lori soon, who said she hoped we had had some good comments on her story on Munstermag - well - we have!! it was very popular - hopefully more to follow..... including a lovely story about a duck - and Desi!

"Munsterlander Swim"

This was Rumour last week - wonder if she is bringing the dummy back today at her first working test - or if she is "playing up"...... They say a good training session in advance can mean not so good on the day and vice versa - wonder if that is the case today?

Saturday, July 08, 2006

"Clever Munsterlander Puppy"

This is another old photograph of Marli, or Ichbin Pagus of Rockfest, belonging to Sharon Miller.
Marli was being taught to "wave" . The actual photograph does not show the action quite so clearly - but the "artistic" shadow certainly does.....

"Munsterlander Delivery"

Sorting through the files and came across this one - be nice if, instead of bills and stuff, had one of these delivered!! This is Marli, owned by Sharon Miller, on a bicycle - err - made for two??
Don't try this at home folks - without considerable obedience training first!!!

"Munsterlander bringing it back............"

This is Rumour, bringing back the dummy (hopefully to hand!) she swam out quite a way yesterday to retrieve it - and seems quite happy with her "prize". Rumour has not always been a working girl - she was a show girl up until last year, and gained her Show Champion title! but is taking time out to learn a different discipline.

"Going for it Munsterlander"

This is Rumour, earlier today, retrieving the dummy from the lake! She is in training for the Winter! Most of her training has been done in "smaller expanses" of water - and today was all about seeing "how far she would go!" I think she passed the test!!!!! You may recognise the scenery? it was "featured" earlier in the week with rescue dog Meg and "friend" Flo. Rumour went to "borrow" their water!!

"Munsterlander Snooze Time"

Large Munsterlander Willow is worn out with all that "counting sheep" business yesterday so is just having a quick nap on Dad's lap!! She looks totally relaxed and comfortable, could be said she "is in the lap of luxury!"...........

Monday, July 03, 2006

"Munsterlander Counting Sheep"

I love this picture. This is Willow, the young large Munsterlander bitch belonging to Jean Makins, not sure whether she is thinking "wouldn't it be nice to chase those things" OR "wonder if they are munsterlanders - just like me?" either way she seems totally fascinated.......... to see more of Jean's dogs have a look at her page on the Ichbinandelle Community section.

"Hot Dog Munsterlander"

This is Ben, the rescue Munsterlander belonging to David Bishop. Mr. Bishop has had munsters in the past, and took on Ben a couple of years back. They seem to have developed a wonderful bond. Today has been very hot - and Ben took the chance to cool off - seems like a good idea to me!! Have a look at the Large Munsterlander Rescue site regularly, good homes are always required. The link is to the right of this picture........

"Cool Munsterlanders"

These are two of the three munsterlanders belonging to the Freeman family. Meg and Flo are pictured swimming in one of the many lakes on the property. Lotty and Andrew Freeman have had munsterlanders for many years, and are stauch supporters of Large Munsterlander Rescue. Meg is the "rescue" bitch here, and she certainly seems to be in doggy paradise. Please look at the Large Munsterlander Rescue site - and ask yourself - could you help?? link on the right of the page.
