"North American Munsterlander"

'This is my first LM, Jagermatt's Chinook 'Ike'. He was born and bred in North America. His sire was Nico v. Eichenhof, a German import. I trained and qualifed him with a prize in our first utility test when he was 29 months old. He lived to be 14 years 6 months without illness and passed away in his sleep. He was a fantastic hunting dog! Not only with a great nose, but great ability as to how to use his nose.... Ike is pointing a ruffed grouse in northern Wisconsin on a foggy day among the aspen trees as he did so many times.... At home I still have LM Honi who is 15 years 7 months and LM Brenda who is 12 years 8 months (Brenda is daughter of Bianka from Austria - she is still hunting with me). I'm planning on some new LMs joining me soon.... Cheers Howard' Thank you so much for your contribution Howard. Munsterlander connections - yesterday's daily dog, Bunny is a granddaughter of Bianka who was also owned by Ulrike.

"Hard to Resist Munsterlander"

Viewing Large Munsterlander puppies is very dangerous. How could anyone resist one of these? Breeders must have to thoroughly check all visitors as they are leaving the premises unless they try and make a quick getaway with one in their handbag or up their jumper!

"Munsterlander Skilled Retriever"

From a technically brilliant photo yesterday to a low res mobile phone image today. This photo appeared on the 'Munsterlanders at Large' blog and is of Large Munsterlander Rumour owned by Jo Banks who will retrieve just about anything she can pick up. It's a motorcycle seat by the way in case you were wondering! Any other Munsterlanders out there avid scrap collectors?

"Munsterlander August in August"

Well August the month has well and truly been and gone but this is August the Large Munsterlander belonging to Christian Bakke in Norway. And this stunning photograph was taken by Ernst Evensen.

"Munsterlander Matriarch"

This is Tarka owned by Ali posing for a photo on her walk on a crisp Autumn morning. Can you believe Tarka's babies from her first and only litter just celebrated their tenth birthday? Doesn't she look well, a treasured golden oldie with hopefully many good years ahead of her.

"Large or Small Munsterlander?"

Differences between Large & Small Munsterlanders? Looks like these two have had a little tiff - over which is best maybe! Ginny & Raisa again owned by Arien in the Netherlands on a lovely woodland walk.

"Munsterlander Three Musketeers"

On the left there's grandfather Seppo with two of his grandchildren: in the middle Jordi and on the right Kylie. Lovely photo and a good looking family group. I wonder what's attracted their attention to get them all looking so alert and in the same direction.

"Munsterlanders spoilt for choice"

'Hello everyone just thought I'd send a couple of photos of Floyd and Ozzy enjoying their new home in Kent. We have lovely beaches and woods close by so dogs having lots of good walks.' Gill. By coincidence we were discussing favourite walks on the 'Munsterlanders at Large' blog yesterday and these two boys certainly seem well off in that respect.

"Munsterlander on best behaviour"

'I saw the pictures of Ginny and Bonnie on the blog. Here I have some nice ones of Bonnie not wrestling!' Linda. Thanks Linda. Here is Bonny whom we saw last week beating up her sister proving she can be a respectable young lady and sitting and posing for the camera.

"Munsterlander Puppy - who could resist?"

"So that's agreed then, you'll be back in three weeks for me, promise?" Caption provided by his soon to be owner, John, and just so apt looking at that little pup's expression. Who could resist that face, those eyes? What a little heartbreaker, the puppy of course!

"Munsterlander Extended Family"

Yesterday we featured Enya, she will be joining the rest of Lynn O'Connell's Munster family of Fleet, Lucy, Skye, Dixie & Alex. This photo is entitled, 'our hole'. I'm sure they can do better than that, they must have only just got started! Caught in the act? Looks to be quite a few 'wasn't me' faces!

"Munsterlander Mother and Daughter Vol.2"

This is Lynn O'Connell's new addition, Enya keeping a close eye on her mother, Lucy. "What do we do now, mum?" An adorable looking Munster pup, looking like butter wouldn't melt but she's fooling no-one. Don't we all know what little devils Munster pups can be?

"Munsterlander in the English Countryside"

More livestock! This is Theo, owned by John Thorn, not in Scotland but in Herefordshire! enjoying an outing in the autumn sunshine and pausing for a photo opportunity. Theo doesn't seem too perturbed by the hairy beasts behind him, "let's get on with the walk!" he says.

"Munsterlander and Cattle"

'A more recent picture of Kylie. A very Dutch one in the cow-stables, taken two weeks ago.' Linda tells us, 'Kylie's not enjoying it so much, she thinks the cows smell odd and their heads and eyes are too big!'

"Munsterlander forever cherished"

'This is our Ralph. We lost him on Saturday 3rd November 2007. He was knocked down by a speeding car outside our house and passed away on my lap on the way to the Royal Veterinary College, Hatfield. He was loved by everyone who met him and was truly the best pet imagineable, a wonderful mix of kindness, loyalty, playfulness and stupidity. John, Nazeing, England.' Our deepest sympathies John.

"Munsterlander Mother & Daughter"

Two more girls from the Netherlands. On the left, Kylie, litter sister to Bonny & Ginny and on the right their proud mother, Jazz. What an attractive pair. We've seen some wonderful photos from Linda on this blog & we look forward to seeing more in the future.

"Munsterlander Wrestling Match"

More sibling rivalry! This time from sisters Bonnie & Ginny in the Netherlands. Correct me if I'm wrong, I think that's Ginny on the ground in both photos. Although, I'm sure they take it in turns to 'pin' each other. Let's hope Ginny got her own back later!

"Beautiful Female Munsterlander"

Another Munsterlander in the Netherlands, this is Eric's Cato again. We're loving all these autumnal photos and this one is a real cracker, lovely crisp image, lovely setting and a beautiful female Munsterlander to boot.

"Munsterlander Rescue Ben"

'Ben enjoying the fine autumnal weather' Thanks David for the photos. It looks like a great place for a Munster walk. Ben certainly seems to think so, plenty of opportunities for rummaging around in the undergrowth. Ideal Munster territory!

"Munsterlander Dutch Champion"

'This is Lessy during a photoshoot of a professional photographer. Champ. Lessy van het exelseveld is a half-sister of Fred owned by Breeder Gerrit Klokman' She is sitting proudly with her 'prize'. What a beautiful Munsterlander & lovely image.
