A No Show

Well Gunther and I have been waiting weeks for the crate and it's still a no show. Last week the company finally contacted me letting me know they were "looking" into it. How nice, it's been weeks, and they are looking into it. (patience is growing thin). My next step will be calling and getting my money back. It's really crazy that something this big could get lost. Gunther's other huge crate I ordered from them last August came in a few days. Oh well.

Anyway, all is good here. Gunther is doing well and we are having a ball with him. I will be glad for a little warmer weather though. It's hard for me to get out with him when its cold, especially the damp cold that we've been having here in GA. But it won't be long till Spring and we can be outside all the time.

A Belated Christmas Present for Gunther

I purchased something for Gunther that I had planned on doing for Christmas and just couldn't. But, finally I found the one I wanted and the size. I can't wait to get it. I'll post real pictures of it when it comes, and pictures of Gunther in it so everyone can get a better idea of the size of it.
Here is the product info:

Gunther news. Ok, this is what everyone is really wanting to know. How is the Gun-Man and what is he up to. ;-) Gunther is doing good. His nose is still a little chapped and dried out. I've used several things to help heal it up, but it's still not where it needs to be. (Any suggestions from my friends who live in snow country would be appreciated). Also, he has been burping. LOL. Ok, I know danes burp, but it's like, he gets in your face and burps and it smells terrible, then he smacks his lips. He then goes off like he just wanted to share that with me. So he's acting like a boy, not a male dog, like a kid. I have a friend who's son does the same thing. LOL. Go figure.

On the training front. Gun has learned a couple more things. He knows the word Thru. And will go through your legs. We have laughed till tears ran down our faces and this huge boy crawling between people's legs. He is also sitting closer and on the come front command, he is getting closer to me, which will be perfect for in the Rally ring. Even though I haven't been able to work with him that much outside because of my knee injury, we have been doing small segments in the house. Every little bit will help get that Rally title. Besides, it's just fun working with him.

Take care
