About Gunther and Kara
Gunther is a stuffed bear that was won by Connie Laubenthal’s father during a cruise to the Bahamas for her Mom. Origin of Derby hat unknown. Gunther took up residence on Connie’s parent’s sofa until their passing. Since that time, Gunther has lived part-time in VA with Connie and part-time in SC with her sister. Due to family circumstances Gunther is now full-time with the Laubenthal’s and will accompany them on their travels. Gunther is kind of a homebody and while he will travel along won’t go on a lot of outdoor excursions.
Kara is a small stuffed Golden Retriever that was given as a present to Connie by her son and daughter-in-law. Kara is named after their family pet who passed away some years ago but is still with the family in spirit. Kara loves the outdoors and will participate in almost all family outings.
