We recently had to put our beloved dane, Sherman, down. His pic is my avatar. Anyway...it was so lonely here without a dog here I started looking into purchasing another dane. Unfortunately I found out that the price of a dane has doubled since we last bought our Sherm.
So, While looking in our bargain finder paper for a topper for hubby's truck, I decided to take a gander at the pets section. I saw the most adorable pic of two puppies. Of course I had to call and they still had some left. Talked hubby into taking a look at them. We ended up putting a deposit on the little sweetie.
Here he is...GSD x Treeing Walker Coonhound...isn't he adorable? We get to pick him up at the end of the month.

:passedout:He is way toooo cute! I am not sure I would have been able to pass this little guy up either. I have never heard of Treeing Walker Coonhounds, what are they like?

I'm so sorry for your loss of Sherman. Its almost like I imagine losing a child. But I agree that Sherman will be watching over you and I'm sure that he approves of the new little one. He is just gorgeous. We lost our nealry 14 year old Zeus 2 years ago and getting a new puppy reminded me of how much work it is - toilet training, training, chewing.... I think they are made cute so we forgive them all the work they are LOL. Its so worth it though isn't it? 3 months of intense training, and the rest is downhill.

oooOOOoooo I need a heart melting smilie person. I've never heard of that kind of dog but with sweet face like that how can you go wrong!!! So sorry you lost a lovely greyhound (i love greyhounds too) but this puppy should make up for that loss 100x over. Have fun!

Sorry to hear about Sherman..
But your new member of the family is sooooo cute....
Bet ya can't wait to take him home..

Thanks everyone! WE have been x'ing the calendar in anticipation of the day he comes home to us.:happydance:
Figaro...neither had I! I guess the neighbor breeds them. They look a bit like a big beagle. This little guy looks more like his shepherd mom.
feministmama...Sherman was a great dane but after looking at his pic with new eyes I could see how you would think he was a greyhound. Danes do have greyhound in their breeding way back when...
Thank you to everyone who expressed sympathy for the loss of our big goober. He has been sorely missed here.:cry:

DragonTush, I am soo sorry for your lost. Your Dane lived a long time!! My husband and I just bought a Great Dane and they are wonderful! I have heard of that kind of Coonhound! THey are great dogs and he is really cute!

He's so cute! I wouldn't have been able to resit him, either.
You are so lucky! We had a Walker hound that we rescued,and named Gracie. She was the biggest silly around, totally adorable and very loving. I hope your little guy is just as wonderful! What will you name him!? Our Gracie was a tri colour beauty. samm

Samm ..can you let a walker off leash? Do they train easily? I've never owned any kind of hound before so I'm a little concerned that I'm going to take him to the off leash area and lose him. I mean we are going to train him (diligently) but I'm still worried.
We are planning on naming him Walter. He just looks like one, plus we tend towards naming our pets after M.A.S.H. characters. We've had a Hotlips and a Radar...my hubby had a Hawkeye. Our dane was Sherman. Granted our cats we have now made it without MASH names but hey:shrug:
What an absolute charmer!
I had a dachshund and they're technically hounds. :) The biggest thing about him was that he followed that nose everywhere. He didn't look to see where he was going, he just snuffled right along.
YAY! Puppy picture! :cheering: He's so cute!

I'm so sorry for the loss of Sherman...but that new puppy is absolutely adorable! Walter sounds like a good name for him.
We lost our dog about a year ago, and got a new one several months later, but not a puppy; she was already well trained. Our very old cat also died recently, and I am hankering to find a new fluffy baby.
Who can resist puppies and kittens? :inlove:
