Pointing a grouse wing at 7 1/2 weeks old
Looking forward to the trip next Sunday. She seems to be a fairly laid back pup, which is what I was after, but it will still be a long ride home.
It's taken a lot of searching and researching, finding the right ancestry. Many potential litters but to close of a relation for using Albert as the stud dog in the future and even one that basically said I wasn't good enough for one of their pups since I bred with SMCA instead of the KLM club! I'm sorry (not really), but that arrogance just made me laugh.
With Albert's confirmation and the health of the lines on sire and dam's sides, there is not much concern for health, and no major physical traits to correct, but a conscientious breeder will always strive to make it better.
It turns out the closest breeder to me, 625 mile round trip today, had a breeding that is about as good of a match as I could ask for, and want for my breeding program.
So, I introduce Hunter's Moon Katie. Two weeks from now she will be here, keeping company with the rest of us.
Color and hair are a big consideration, but confirmation is #1, and this little girl sure looks like she is going to have it!
My first Brittany puppy back in 1984 was the beginning of my bird dog career. After 28 years of raising and training Brits, and working a few years for a professional trainer, I gained a pretty good foundation and experience with many breeds. After the passing of my last Brit in 2012, I took a hard look at the Small Munsterlander, and I'm glad I did, they are truly the total package.
I have never been a "dog trader". To me a dog is not a possession, it's a friend, companion and part of the family. If this is the way you feel, then you will appreciate the true uniqueness of the Small Munsterlander, one of the oldest breeds of versatile hunting dogs.

We cribbed up an old storage building and pulled it away. Now the tree at left will come down and new bigger building will go up, but right up against the old slab where outdoor runs were, so new runs will have indoor housing. Hopefully done before puppies get here!
It finally quit raining long enough we got the frame up and some of the sheeting, should be ready for the first litter when they are old enough to go outside.
Realized I had not updated this! The “dog house” is done, got a pad poured in front of the door and just got the ground worked up, graded and seeded. Now to work on getting the grass growing good again inside the fence!
Albert is on the right, he’s standing and Lilly is sitting but he is a taller dog than her.

There is no better way to appreciate all the great qualities of a Small Munsterlander than to visit and hang out with one in person!
You will quickly find out that they are surely not just another dog, or as Carol says, not a normal dog!
