"Munsterlander Seadog"

This picture is entitled "Ro trening", and again, is from Line Ørmen in Norway and the dog is Canutten, lovely name, I wonder if it has a meaning? Or translation. It is fascinating these daily glimpses into the life and training of munsters home and abroad.

"Munsterlander on the Rocks"

This is another beautiful photograph from Line Ørmen in Norway. We think maybe they give lessons in photography at every Scandinavian school? This is Canutten sitting proud and handsome.

"Munsterlander Comforts"

Sommerhilsen fra Falken, is of Falk, and the text means" Summer greetings from Falk(en)"
What a beautiful head and expression, and lovely thoughts.

"Norwegian Munsterlander"

This is a photograph taken by Line Ormen in Norway, of Frigg, and the caption provided reads
"Kan jeg også få potetgull?" which apparently means "Can I have some potato chips please?"
Thank You very much for sending this, and other photos in.

"Munsterlander Join-in"

A lovely photo sent in by Barbara Butler of Summer (Gorsebank Lady Amethyst of Tattay) belonging to Toni Ann Taylor, Meadow (Gorsebank Marchioness Lizi of Jendellas) owned by Barbara, and Red Setters Spook & Boots belonging to friend Julie. Apparently Meadow has adopted Spook as her "own" baby boy.

"Munsterlander Love-in"

Munsterlanders are a very loving breed, loving water, loving life, loving being out and about and getting in the swim of things.

"Munsterlander pampering session"

Nothing better after a long soak in the tub than a good roll across the grass to dry yourself off - Munsterlander style! This is Bianka in Austria showing us that it's not just ducks that enjoy getting wet!

"Bunny the Munsterlander"

Most Munsterlanders like to chase bunnies but here is a Munsterlander called Bunny! She belongs to Ulrike Rossger in Austria and is a grandaughter of Ulli's Austrian Champion Bianka who is another 2007 calendar girl!

"Munsterlander down in the woods"

If you go down to the woods today.........and you live in Holland - you may be lucky enough to see this attractive Munster, Jesse owned by Cindy de Wolf. Jesse is one of the calendar girls for 2007. We've almost got our full quota of Munsterlander photos for 2008 but would welcome more and snow scenes too for Christmas cards!

"Munsterlander cushion"

Munsterlanders are such a versatile breed! Not only do they make great hunting dogs, agility/obedience/show dogs and family companions, Fia is also showing us what comfortable cushions they can make for children, dollies & teddy bears!

"Munsterlander show-off"

Raisa is obviously trying to impress or is she just trying to make herself look taller next to the Great Dane? Is Ginni the 'small' Large Munsterlander in the middle looking in awe? 3 dogs & 3 different sizes! The Great, the Large & the Small!

"Munsterlander Hunting?"

Yesterday Desi was hunting for tweety birds, do not think that is what Christine Weber's Mia is looking for. Mia seems quite entranced with something down by the bridge.

"Watch the Birdie Munsterlander"

This is Desi, watching the birdies in the back yard of her home in Dakota, USA. Desi is Snowy Oaks Desi and a keen huntress, although suspect this time her "prey" is a tweetie bird.

"Munsterlander Twosome"

Thank you to Arien Karman in Holland for sending some lovely photos of Ginni (LM) and Raisa (SM) for Daily Dog and the 2008 Munster calendar - really gorgeous shots! Raisa is obviously going for total cuteness here!!!

"The same Munsterlander in Norway"

A bit of a departure from the normal set up this morning. My turn, so I am going to try using this edited photograph and hope it shows up against the black background. Fingers crossed!!! This is Frigg, the photograph was sent in by Line Ormen of Norway.

"Munsterlander in Norway"

This photo was sent in to us by Line Ormen in Norway. It is Frigg, gazing out at the landscape. It is lovely to see not only the dogs from abroad, but also their "territory" and lifestyle.

"Munsterlander Mum to be?"

I am hoping it is okay to use this photo here today? It is Lynn O'Connells Lucy, who, it is hoped is in whelp, to Harry, not "Harry met Sally", more "Harry met Lucy". Either way, lovely photo and she obviously has all those "natural instincts".

"Munsterlander Pals"

The last of the photos from Gill of Ozzy and Floyd, her two munsterlanders, yes, they are related, Mum of Ozzy is litter sister to Floyd.

"Munsterlander Boys"

Two more pictures from Gillian Bratcher of her boys Floyd and Ozzie. Floyd is "Uncle" to Ozzie and seems to be taking "family friendships" to the extreme. Looks like they are going to be a "matching pair".

"More Munsterlander Activity"

Seems looking out of the window is a common Munster activity. This is Floyd and Ozzie both belong to Gill Bratcher. We understand that Gill and family are about to move house, perhaps the boys are worried they are being left behind, and so want to keep an eye on proceedings. Good Luck to the Bratcher family, with dogs, in their new home.

"Munsterlander Activity?"

This is Theo, owned by John Thorn, Theo likes to keep an eye on the family at all times. Munsterlanders do like to actively participate in family life. Theo especially so.

"Classic Munsterlander Expression"

This head shot has been sent into Munstermag by Alison Cobbledick. It is a photo of Diva, or Blitzan Leahs Stunner, with such a soulful expression. Please remember to send your photographs for Daily Dog to Munsterlandergroupie@hotmail.com and watch to see it become "Daily Dog". Daily Dog is chosen by a member of the group every day.

"Munsterlander Walks"

These lovely photos were sent to Munstermag by Val Perman. Molly and Tiger are much loved pets. Val tells us "A couple of photos of Molly and Tiger on our walk this morning. The path we were walking on is a diversion from the West Highland Way to Milngavie golf course - a very scenic route that goes past a little waterfall in the Allander river. Not that I've ever seen any golfers going this way - they go in their cars along the road! It is very lush and green everywhere because of all the rain we've had in the last few weeks, though it's not been as bad in Scotland as in parts of England". It is lovely when people join in, and it is so nice to read the story behind the photograph. Thank You to Val.

"Munsterlander calendar boy"

Using one of this year's featured calendar photos to put out a gentle reminder that a few more photos for the 2008 calendar would be appreciated from non-UK residents! This is Dixon Ciperro standing proudly with Finnish forest as his backdrop having featured as the LM for May 2007.

"Working Munsterlander?"

Kerry kindly sent me three pictures of Fynn - she will, hopefully, put the other two on the public blog - with the "story" of where he is and what he is doing................ I do so love to see these dogs out and about "doing what comes naturally".

"Munsterlander spoilsport"

Curtis posing with the River Tay behind him, the lush greenery and an annoying older sister popping her head up at the wrong time to spoil the ambience! Or maybe she did it deliberately?

"Munsterlander on the trail"

A bit of a case of - "must have a closer look at that smell"................ Christine Weber's Mia (ohhhh not Curtis!!!) out on a walk................... smell-a-vision.

"Munsterlander Working girl"

This is Purdey, owned by Anne and Phil, bred by Christine Weber, photo by Mark Gerhard, taken at the LMC working test last weekend. A girl with brains and beauty!!

"Munsterlander Hi Jinks"

A similar photo to this appears on the 2007 Large Munsterlander calendar featuring photos of dogs from around the world. This is Asti vom Rabenbaum & Kersta Ciperro (German bred but living in Finland) having a great play together. 2008 calendar is now in the planning stages so if you have any suitable photos and live outside the UK, then we'd be delighted if you could send them to Elle please.

"Munsterlander Base Instincts!"

We are (hopefully!!) talking about socialisation on the Munsters at large blog - and puppies learn all the time by example! See Gus above checking out having a roll!!! Gus is now thirteen weeks, he learnt a lot in his breeders home, and is "furthering his education" here with us, but - never underestimate the benefits of early socialisation - by the breeder - you then have a head start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Munsterlander basic instincts"

Today is the LMC working test so I thought this photo of Beau (Blitzan Charming Beau) appropriate. Obviously following his natural instincts and has gone on point - I wonder what he has found?
