Default In an act of insanity-we get a puppy

After losing Uncle Fred on Monday, something I don't know when we will recover from, we are getting a puppy on Sunday. My 13 year old son wants to get into hunting and showing a nice hound, and we have the offer of a gorgeous Walker pup. I have never had a dog that is bred like this, and I don't know how it is going to go, but he looks like a great pup, and we'll see what the future brings with him.

I have one picture, from the breeder, but I don't know about the legality of posting someone else's pics. He's an "all grand" pup- all of his ancestors for five generations at least, have been a UKC Grand champion in the show ring, in the woods, or both. I think the main idea is to try to hunt him in junior events- and see how he turns out for showing. We pick him up on Sunday- and i'm a little dazed by the whole thing.

Our vet always advises to get another dog ASAP, and my boys seem to have taken the advice to heart. I know this is something Will has wanted to do for some time, so here goes.

Good luck! I am sure he will be a fantastic puppy. Nothing will ever replace Uncle Fred, but I've always been of the opinion that they'll find their way back to you somehow, someday.

This thread makes me smile.

Some people need time... others (myself included) do best when another dog becomes part of the family soon after. I'm excited to see your new puppy!

Sometimes bringing a new puppy (or dog) home helps heal your heart a little. Not to replace the dogs who have gone before, but to remind us that there is joy in this world and life is worth living to the fullest. And that means puppies!

Good luck, I hope the pup works out great for your son! How exciting for him to be able to get into a new hobby.

Congrats on the new pup that will be coming. I can't wait to see a pic and also what you've decided to name him.

I will be anxious to see the new pup! There is no right or wrong on what to do in these circumstances--so if a new pup feels like the right thing to do--I say go for it. I think it's a tribute to Uncle Fred that your son wants a hound!
Do you still have Mini? How is she doing?
