"Proud Large Munsterlander"

This is Heide, or Ichbin Bedazzled Von Estmarza, proudly owned by Elaine Baker. Heide is making quite a name for herself in the "obedience" ring, and today won the RBCC in the showring at WELKS - a truly multi-talented girl. Here she is seen holding the RCC card - clearly not as impressed as her owner had been......

"Almost a Large Munsterlander"

This is a bit of a consolation prize! Christine Weber walked her dogs up the Sidlaw Hills today,
intending to take some more photos of Mia and Curtis, but - after all that effort - the camera batteries were flat, so trudged all the way home again! However, after a good dinner, the dogs, including this cavalier or "honourary Munsterlander", got a pig's ear in the sun. So maybe not the shot I wanted, but the story was good................................... and the dogs were happy!!!

"Large Munsterlander Tongue!"

Brook taking a break on her walk - doesn't she look sweet................... Wet and scruffy, but so easy going, and so full of energy! but a bit accident prone! Quite a character!

"Wet and happy Munsterlander"

Readers of our other blog (Munsternotes, ) will know that Brook (the Large Munsterlander bitch pictured above) has had a problem with her tail this week. This picture was taken the day before, when she was racing along this path, and in and out of the rivers flowing on either side, we feel that this was where she caused the injury!! I am sure it will not be putting her off her favourite walk in future. Let's hope she is more careful though!!

"Large Munsterlander in action"

This is Jesse, owned by Cindy in the Netherlands, catching a ball............... caught in the act, jumping up, mid flight! She looks to be having fun! Munsterlanders can turn a paw to anything it seems.....

"That Scottish Munster again"

Bet you all thought from the title it would be Curtis again!! but no - this time - is Mia, having fun paddling in rock pools, this is Jagerreh Hermia, owned and bred by Christine Weber in Scotland, and talking of titles (top of the post!) ..... Mia does have her "Show Champion" title - she is actually Sh. Ch. Jagerreh Hermia JW., seems she scrubs up well.....

"Pair of Scottish Munsters"

This is Curtis and Mia, two large Munsterlanders who live in Scotland with owner, & breeder Christine Weber. Clearly Christine has decided the best way to include Mia is to get her to stand next to Curtis............. think you all know I have a bit of a "thing"about Curtis..............

"Large Munsterlander of the past"

I came across this photo today, whilst attempting to clear out my files! this is a picture of Dee, or Petar Von Plazastein, sadly no longer with us, but she was the most sweet and gentle munsterlander I have ever had, or anyone will ever have!!! She was a total "lady".

"Attractive Female Scottish Munster"

This is Mia, a bitch belonging to Christine Weber, have to admit Christine regularly sends me photos, and I have a penchant for poor Mia's housemate - Curtis! but that is just a personality thing, Mia, or Sh. Ch. Jagerreh Hermia JW., is a very beautiful girl - if overshadowed by that Curtis!!! I must be more fair minded and give Mia equal opportunity..........

"Large Munsterlander to be"

From Yesterdays "Goldie Oldie" to almost "Brand New" but the working instinct is still there! This is Jovi, (photo by Brian Eastgate of course!), the youngest of Sharon Miller's four Munsterlanders. A clear action shot of a beautiful puppy.

"Large Munsterlander Golden Oldie"

This photo was taken a couple of years ago, when Millie was about 13 years old. Jo saw her today, still going, maybe not quite so strong, but she IS now 15 years old..... Proudly owned by Mike and Joyce Brown, Millie was quite well known as a good working dog in her prime, she was also shown. Certainly worthy of the title "Golden Oldie".

"Gardening with the Large Munsterlander"

This is Chance, one of the Large Munsterlanders belonging to Linda Williamson, here he is showing off his gardening talents!! no doubt closing his eyes thinking if he cannot see "Mum" she cannot see him!!!!!!!!! Jenny Moore has suggested a Munstermag item about gardening with Munsterlanders in mind............ was this what she meant??

"Munsterlander Family Group photo"

Here we have one for the "Family album" another Brian Eastgate photo, featuring Dylan, Marli, and Floyd, with little Jovi sat at the front.......... Floyd seems a bit bored with all this posing, Dyl seems to be nodding off, only Marli, in the middle, seems to be interested!! and of course, all new to little Jovi........ the Family foursome, all belong to Sharon Miller.

"Munster puppy pointing"

This is Jovi, the Large Munsterlander puppy belonging to Sharon Miller. Photo by Brian Eastgate, lovely shot of the puppy, shame about the background, but then Munsters - and gardens - do not always go together!! Not always the dog for the keen gardener...........

"Large Munsterlander in Waiting"

If they would all stand like this in the showring!! Alert, Attractive, and commanding Attention! but then, they prefer to be out and about in the field....... this is Keira again, clearly with her eye on something in the distance! This is the Large Munsterlander owned and loved by Chris Hills.

"Large Munsterlander - sheer joy"

This is Keira, the Large Munsterlander bitch belonging to Chris Hills, stunning photograph - how does the camera person avoid getting "run over"? The expression of sheer joy on the dog's face is wonderful, nice sunny day, happy, healthy dog. A "feel good" pic.

"Paddling Scottish Munsters"

This is Chloe, coming towards the camera, and Seska, going away from the camera! Two beautiful and happy girls belonging to Linda Williamson. Nothing better for a munster, than splashing about in a river...... agh bliss.........

Thursday, April 13, 2006

"More Scottish Munsters"

Chance and Seska are enjoying a paddle, not too sure about Chloe though, she seems to think the water is a bit chilly!!! These are Linda Williamson's Large Munsterlanders in Scotland. Out and about on a walk making use of Linda's new camera..... Hopefully more photos to come!!

"More of that Scottish Munster"

Chose to get up close and personal with Curtis again tonight - lovely clear head shot, may well use for future notelets for Large Munsterlander Rescue, he really is a handsome boy - a dog to be proud of, as I am sure his owner Christine Weber is!!!

Tuesday, April 11, 2006

"Attractive Scottish Munster"

Well, I am sure you will all recognise this - it is Curtis, Jagerreh Curtis, owned and bred, and frequently photographed, by Christine Weber in Scotland. Hardly surprising he has so many photos taken, he is a very attractive example of the breed, Scotland must be very proud of him!! He is, I admit, one of my favourite dogs, and I know he is a very popular pin-up amongst readers of Daily Dog.

"Not quite a Large Munsterlander"

This is Tinkerbelle, the Cavalier, who THINKS she is a Large Munsterlander, as is regularly exercised with Christine Weber's three Munsters - don't you love the "Beach Babe" pose? seems she shares the love of water and wide open spaces, well maybe not quite as enthusiastic as a munster, but still keen to tag along.

"Large Munsterlander Watching - Mum!"

These are two of Linda Williamson's dogs - Chance and Chloe, typical Male Munsterlander - watching Mum, whilst Chloe, the female of the breed!, goes off to investigate a hole in the bank. I always joke my bitches could survive in the wild - if they had too - my dog could not!!!!!!!!!
Lovely place for a walk, and lovely dogs to walk with, life is good.

"Large Munsterlander Watching...."

This is Floyd, think he has his eye on something and is creeping towards it, oh so gently does it!!
This is the last in the current mini-series of photo's by Brian Eastgate, (unless of course he sends me some more pics over the next few days!!) again, just love the blurred background and the clear, and classic, Munsterlander.

"Munsterlander on a Mission"

This is Sharon Miller's Marli, looks as if "on a mission" to boldly seek out the wildlife no doubt! another excellent picture by photographer Brian Eastgate. Love the slightly blurred look to the background and yet the dog is in sharp focus, no easy feat, capturing a Munsterlander at speed.

"Large Munsterlander Leaping"

This is Sharon Millers Marli, or Ichbin Pagus of Rockfest, as she is known, enthusiastically retrieving the dummy. Photographer Brian Eastgate has captured all the grace and enthusiasm of this wonderful breed is this excellent "working" picture.

"Versatile Large Munsterlander"

Maybe not a very clear photo, on first sight, but this is Visa, enjoying the high life!! or hoping to share in the high life? Jenny and Pete Moore, with Munsterlanders Cash and Visa, stayed overnight in that very swanky hotel by the NEC., (see date, 'twas the night before Crufts!) and Visa clearly was not fazed by the opulence, just waiting for room service to bring her gold dog bowl no doubt!!

"Large Munsterlander Abroad"

This is one of a series of photos sent to me by Lori in America, this is one year old Snowy Oaks Desi enjoying the snow. With the drop in temperature today in the UK., thought this to be a very apt picture. Several of these pictures will be used for the 2006 Large Munsterlander Rescue Christmas Cards. I am sure you will agree she has a wonderful expression on her face.......

"Large Munsterlander Softie"

This is Sharon Millers oldest boy, Dylan, with Sharon's new pup, Jovi, (yes folks still on the music theme!) Not sure as Dylan totally thrilled with baby sitting, but he is doing a good job of it. Dylan is eight years old, and Jovi is just eight weeks old!!!

Sunday, April 02, 2006

"LArge Munsterlander on the move"

This is Sharon Millers dog Floyd, or Sh. Ch. Yeldoaks Hot Pursuit JW., a beautiful photo taken by Brian Eastgate. Floyd is not just a show dog, he is a keen worker too, and lovely to live with, nicknamed Flopsy at home, and very much the underdog of the pack.

"A Large Munsterlander with added spring!"

You are probably wondering where the title comes into this? ie added spring! Well this is Brook, in the back garden, alone, and why is Brook in the back garden alone? well, because Brook does not seem to realise a gate that is shut is intended as an obstacle, she just jumps over it, just like that! and strange as it seem the other five all stand there - looking amazed that she has done it! and make no attempt to follow her!!
