Gunther and his new toy

Ok so maybe I can't resist getting Gunther new toys all the time. But you should see how happy he gets, when I bring one home to him. He got a new spider today and has played with the thing ALL day. Including slept with it when he stopped long enough for a nap. LOL. He even tried to take it outside to potty. With all the other things going on in my families life right now, it's so wonderful having a companion that is happy and can be so thrilled with something as simple as a toy.

In a couple of weeks Gunther's brother Ivan will be in another show. I am really looking forward to it. I love going to dog shows. But I have heard that Ivan has been doing a little growing and so it will be interesting to see how much he has grown and if it helps him in the ring. Will let you know.

This is Ivan, Gunther's little brother

Say hello to Ivan. This is Gunther's little brother from the litter that was born Sept. 29, 2006. He is 5 months old and debuted in the show ring for the first time yesterday (Saturday, March 3). He is an amazing little boy. Charming, cute and still such a little puppy. I am so excited for him and his future. I think is going to have a wonderful time in the show ring. Speaking of that. Noel Clarke, Ivan's handler is in my personal opinion, the perfect handler for Ivan. Check out Noel's website and look at his Danes.

Don't you just love this face? And that nose is so cute!

Here is Noel taking Ivan up and down the ring for the judge. I wish you could see Ivan's gait.

And here he is after his final lap around the ring. There were several other Danes and their owners, handlers and family standing just a few feet away from Ivan in this picture. Just enough to distract him to look out of the ring. But it gave me a good photo. LOL.

Over the summer Ivan will be going to several shows and I'll of course post how he is doing. There is a big show for him coming up April 15. Like the Gun-Man was at this age, Ivan will grow leaps and bounds by the April dog show. Keep in him your thoughts as Noel prepares him for it.
