"Munsterlander Magic"

Just as I took the photo Brook dropped the toy!! Lana is still fast asleep on the sofa, note all the furniture covered in dog friendly throws!! who lives in a house like this!! we do, and describe the decor as "shabby chic" (with the emphasis on shabby - but ideal for the dogs!!!) and if they are happy - so am I............... someone gave me a poster recently "a house without a dog is not a home" this must be one hell of a home!!!! (yeah ....the dogs home!!!)

"Munsterlander mum & daughter!"

You can see by the expression on Jazz's face exactly what she thinks of her ever growing daughter lying on top of her! 'Can you move your right elbow it's digging in my neck'? Kylie & Jazz belong to Linda in Holland and although Kylie was returned to Linda after initially being sold, she has settled back into life with her mum very well. Too well for Jazz's liking!

"Happy Munstering"

This is my Brook, just love this pic, because is so Brook!!! and so typical munster, a long RUN!! (not a walk!) and a bit of water............... and she is happy. I do apologise for using a pic of my own dogs, but just downloaded this pic and it so made me smile - hope it does you too!!!

"Clean living Munsterlander"

Bodica, Suzannes Small Munsterlander, learning nothing in life is without hassle, before you get out to enjoy the countryside you have to clean the car!!! and as the car was no doubt bought with her comfort and trips out in mind - only fair!!! Wish all dogs had the luck of Bodica!!!

"Munsterlander or Monster puppy"

Sadly the planned mating between Dottie and Harry did go ahead, but seems Sarahs GWP got there first!!! So, instead, of having homes for munster puppies all lined up, Sarah now has to find homes for little monsters!!! (not really monsters! sweeties in disguise!!!!) However, they should make cracking working dogs, or pets, anyone interested let me know and will pass the details on to Sarah. How can anyone resist that face?

"Golden Oldie Munsterlander Girl"

This is Hattie, belonging to Barbara Butler. Hattie is nearly 15 years old, what a credit to her owner!!! Going a bit grey now (aren't we all?) but still enjoying life, albeit at a slower pace!!!
Lovely to see the oldies - every bit as cute as a puppy!!!!

Munsterlander break from Motherhood"

This is Tia, Gorsebank Marchioness Tara, taking a turn around the garden, and checking out the fish - puppies safely indoors! Apparently she never goes in the pond, just watches the fish swim by - know none of mine would be so good!!!!

"Munsterlander inspection time"

Is Bosun perhaps inspecting the work of the digger? or just finding a bit of natural water to cool down in after all that building stuff? either way - typical munster, lets get wet and dirty!! Love his head and expression, and colouring!!! my kind of dog!!!!!!!!!

Friday, April 20, 2007

"Bosun the Munsterlander Builder"

Bosun the Munsterlander builder, sounds even better than Bob the builder - and looks better too!!!! His owners Jane and Peter are, I believe, involved in building their own house, and Bosun likes to oversee the job!!! He has even been known to inspect the scaffolding.........

"Munsterlander King of the Castle"

Well, okay, king of the woodpile then!! Curtis enjoying the sunshine (?) in Scotland. I love this dog, he is such a poseur - and of excellent temperament - no "attitude" to him ! Such a sweetie!

"Munsterlander fun in the sun!"

This is our Brook, out in the back garden in the sun at the weekend! not quite sure what she is doing with the legs, perhaps I caught her at a bad angle? - but then - Brook is not quite sure either! Nor do we care, (either of us!!!) She's happy and she is the sweetest, if dimmest, of the bunch!!!

"Munsterlander Danny Boy and friend!"

Dan looks happy, had his playmate Poppy round all weekend!!! Owner Claire says she gets lots of people admiring this pair, and sometimes she tries to recognise the person approaching - be they Bernese fans, or Munster fans? - better not bump into Jean Stone of Munsterlander Rescue - she is very "into" both breeds!!!! spoilt for choice eh Jean?

"Large Munsterlander and Mini Munsterlander"

I love the expression on the pup's face!!! a bit of a "who are you" kind of thing? The pup is one of Line Ormen's litter in Norway and the adult dog is Drift av Hundremeterskogen. He is five years old, and he is with Line "on vacation". What a superb temperament!!! I have other photos of this boy playing with the puppies! His owner, and breeder, should be very proud of him.

"A Munsterlander Down South"

Yesterday we had Curtis in Scotland, today we have Liebe down on the South Coast! Munsters everywhere!!!!! Apparently the beaches are closed to dogs from May to September, so Liebe was trying to just catch one of those seagulls before the ban..................... Thanks to Liz and Eric for this pic.

"Munsterlanders in Scotland"

Christine Weber has sent some cracking photos this week, taken on a walk in Scotland, which,hopefully, she will "write up" for Munstermag...... but here is a bit of a taster shot....... think eventually walks like these will have to be "linked" to holiday accommodation in the area - as I am sure you will all be keen to try it..........

"Inquisitive Munsterlander"

This is Theo, belonging to John Thorn, trying to work out if the grass really is greener on the other side, and if it is - how to get over there!!! Theo is litter brother to Zak, (Zak was featured on Wednesday - if my memory serves me well!) I do love the expression on his face!! so deep in thought, clearly trying to work it all out.............. to his advantage!!!

"Gone, but not forgotten, Munsterlander"

These pictures were sent to me recently by Mr. Bishop, they are of his munster - Axel - sadly departed (hope this does not bring a tear to the eye for all?) It is always bitter-sweet to see pics of dogs "gone before" but pleasant memories and a fittting tribute.

"Munsterlander boy and toy"

This is Zac, owned by Russ, with his favourite toy (of the moment!) I have yet to find a toy that really withstands a munster (or six!) - many of those labelled "virtually indestructible" just - aren't!!!! Anyone with any toys to recommend? please contact me!!

"Bentley the Munsterlander"

This is Bentley the Munsterlander belonging to Ann Eve, top pic, at the beach with the other dog Wren (love the name!) and bottom pic - giving a paw, whilst wearing his rosette, won at Crufts!
Ann has recently joined the blog, and is soon to get a bitch puppy, by Bentley's sister, Dottie. So - Welcome to Ann.

"Munsterlander giving Agility a go!"

Rumour has never done Agility before, never even tried it, been too busy showing and working, yesterday she tried her paw at the fun agility course - and took to it quite well!! She also had a go at flyball - and enjoyed that too! A great day out for the Easter Weekend.

Munsterlander Down Under.

This very striking dog is Shadow who belongs to Neil Murray on Philip Island, Australia. Neil has 3 Munster's - Shadow's sister, Kelsi and 13 year old, Millie who all enjoy lots of exercise on the beach close by and a large back yard to wander around in - sounds an ideal life! A few more photos of Neil's dogs are posted on the At Large blog.

"Munsterlander Puppies, choices!"

The top pic is one of Sarah's latest litter, of which there is one male left (I think this one!) the bottom pic is one of Pat's last litter (now all sold!) What a contrast!!!! I know the picture of Pat's pup is taken in a sunny room, whereas the other one is taken in a darker setting - but what a difference in colouring and markings? The little chap at the top is going to grow up quite dark, with a beautiful all black head, and lovely dark eye - available to a show home - anyone interested? contact Sarah via Munstermag. The little lad on the bottom picture went to his new home yesterday, and we hope he will be very happy - and of course send us pictures as he grows up.

"Sunshine on a Munsterlander"

Who says it always rains in Scotland? Taken yesterday morning - Curtis stands proud, overlooking Perth. Yesterday Strathallan, by Perth was the warmest place in the UK - 21 C!
Lovely day, lovely scenery, lovely dog.....................

"Munsterlander in the Netherlands"

This is Jesse, owned by Cindy in the Netherlands. Jesse lives with Cindy and her partner with an assortment of other dogs, and from the pictures I receive from Cindy it seems Jesse has a lovely lifestyle, family holidays, and various dog activities/sports. She also featured on this years edition of the Munsterlanders around the World Calendar - pedigree name - Boo of the Geronimo Tribe (if my memory serves me well?)

"Sad faced Munsterlander"

I was going to resist, I was not going to use this pic of Danny Boy - but - here he is again, he has such a range of expressions - here he is looking very "pensive" - or perhaps he is just asking Clare "are you sure I have not got time for another swim?"

"One of my favourite Munsterlanders"

This is Dan, I always love pics of Dan, he seems such a happy, outgoing, character! Sort of with a real zest for life! I know he has had some health problems, and I know his owner, Claire, does all she can to help him, and I think that is reflected in his attitude!!! He knows he is a lucky dog to have a lovely owner!!!

"Munsterlander puppy abroad"

This is Kylie, some of you may recognise her as Nova, she went to a new home but sadly it did not work out, so she is (happily!) back with her breeder in the Netherlands. Last time I used pics of her I mentioned I liked her very much and would be tempted, then had an e-mail from a gentleman who said he liked her too - we might be in for a race!!!! except he has a valid passport and I no longer have!!! (and the breeder is now keeping her anyway!!!!)

"Munsterlanders in coats!"

Small Munster Bodica models a green fleece number, and Large Munsterlander Curtis models a blue net concoction! Neither seem over thrilled with the "look" in fact Curtis looks positively horrified and disgusted at the idea!!! (It'll ruin his "street cred") Bodica looks much more relaxed about the idea! but then hers is to wear AFTER an event, eg. when wet and dirty, his is to wear after his bath!!! BEFORE an event........
