Looks like I am going to be hanging around in here a little more often. After 15 years we had to put down our German Wirehaired Pointer this past spring and it was one of the hardest things we have ever done. I had not been able to hunt with her for the past 5 years because of her health and she just didnt have it in her any more. After she passed my wife did not really want to get another dog, but I think we both missed her more that either cared to admit. We started looking into other breeds that were as natural a hunter as the wirehairs and also just as good a house dogs and found the Large Munsterlander breed. After talking with the only breeder we could find in Alaska for the past 6 months we got a call to let us know that he had a litter and there was one of the two female's of the litter available if we wanted it.
The pups were born 26 Dec so they will not be ready for a bit, but he sent us pics and will be sending more as they grow and develop their personalities and skills. I have had several shorthairs and the one wirehair so this will be a whole new game and I look forward to many trips to the hills with her!
