We're back and I have new pictures

It's been awhile since I posted and I apologize. It's been a wild and wacky time at my house. Hopefully things have settled down until the first of years and I can get back to regular posts and pictures of my sweetie.

We have been in TN. (Sevierville, Gatlinburg) for the past week and so this mornings Gunther was ready to get out in the backyard and play and just go nuts. The pictures below are of a naked Gunther. (no collar). He loves to be naked. LOL. Actually I think it makes his neck look longer and his chest a little bigger.

Gunther, being the keen squirrel hunter he is, seen one of his friends running across the privacy fence. It made for a great picture. This could be one of my favorites of him.

It wasn't until I took the above picture that I noticed that Gunther is starting to look more like an adult Dane and less like the crazy puppy he is. Well, before we know it he will be a "big boy". ;-)

Puppy News: Gunther's breeder has placed all of the puppies. According to his website all of the babies have new homes. I am so excited for those people. I know that if their pups are like Gunther they will have the perfect addition to their families. I believe that Friday the 17th, some of them were going to their new homes (how great is that, they are going to have their first Thanksgiving with their new pups). Hopefully I will be talking to Jay in the next day or so to see how many have gone and if any of them went out of town/state.

Ok, there's laundry to fold and lunch to fix. Gunther and I are busy today so we'll close for now. Posted by Picasa

Time has flown by

This morning I realized that life had once again taken over and I was too busy for my own good. LOL. Sometimes it just happens before you know it. Well that's where I'm at. We've had birthdays and training and extra work and wow here we are the 2nd day of November. So I'll catch you up with the latest and greatest of Gunther news.

We have been working daily on Rally. I purchased the cones that are used in Rally and set up similar courses to practice on. I've even been working on things that will be expected of him in the next level of Rally. He is just so smart and catches on quickly. He is doing really well and I think once we get into actually competing he will do wonderful. The only thing that may get him, is not being use to being in that atmosphere. Dog shows are a whole world of their own, so I plan on taking him to a few and just walking him through and exposing him to it. Then in January we'll start.

I had planned on starting him in tracking classes, but that has gotten put on hold since I just had $600.00 worth of work done on my car. With the holidays coming up, I'm guessing that will have to be put off till the first of the year too. The good thing about all this is that we have something to look forward to.

It's not often that I post without a picture of my Gun-man, but today I took some pictures and they just turned out terrible. So I promise that I'll get some over the weekend. You might be surprised how much he has grown since the last set of pictures.

Gunther's parents had pups about 4 weeks ago and they are amazing. To see them click here. You can't go wrong getting one of these pups. They are sweethearts.
