Gunther started the Gold or Hometown Units inaugural tour with Doc in 2004. They came back to start the 2005 season on the Gold unit again but were pulled off the road by the summer. Gunther never went out again.Bob Cline

Gunther was named after Ringling's animal training superstar, Gunther Gebel-Williams.
