Thanks everyone! WE have been x'ing the calendar in anticipation of the day he comes home to us.
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.
