A Treeing Walker Coonhound Lesson AND The Thankful Fur 3 Thursday Blog Hop!

While my mom and I were out walking yesterday two humans asked her if I was a TALL BEAGLE and once again my mom said, "If I collected a dollar each time someone asked me that question I would be a very rich woman." And then I heard my mom politely tell the two-leggers that there is no such thing as a tall beagle and that I am, in fact, a Treeing Walker Coonhound.

My mom is convinced that if I was still living in North Carolina she would not be asked about my breed and of course that means that she'd never get rich off me either. BOL! Sooooo in case you want to know what a tall beagle looks like (hee-hee) take a long, hard look at the picture above but don't look fur too long because my tippy toes are starting to hurt!

And now that my Treeing Walker Coonhound lesson is over with let's start the THANKFUL FUR THREE THURSDAY BLOG HOP! Are you ready to meet some new furiends and start hopping? I'll leave the hopping to you though because my tippy toes are going to rest in a bowl of ice fur awhile, okee-dokee?

This blog hop is FUR our loyal followers but it is also for NEW Google Friend Connect followers as well! If you are a NEW Google Friend Connect follower and if you want to be one of the 3 blogs to be in next Thursday’s SPOTLIGHT you need to leave a request in the comment box and please hurry if you are interested because only the FURst 3 requests count!

I like to keep things simple so here are the 3 guidelines FUR the blog hop:

1. To join in the Thankful Fur 3 Thursday, include your link in our list and follow my blog (this week I furgot to ask for hostesses, sorry!).Visit other blogs on the list and comment to give them some blog love. Then take a minute to follow them through Google Friend Connect – this is a good way to keep up with other blogs, but also lets us show support to each other!

2. When people comment on your blog and let you know they’re a part of Thankful FUR 3 Thursday, return the favor and follow them back. This way everyone gets traffic and followers out of participating, and it’s a win-win situation. We would think it was pawsome if you grabbed our Thankful FUR 3 Thursday button and post it on your blog and/or in a post but please don't feel obligated to do so! The more bloggers that find out about Thankful FUR 3 Thursday and participate, the better!

3. Remember, YOU can host the link list on your blog too! Just click “Get the code here…” at the bottom of the list.

As promised, we are THANKING and SPOTLIGHTING 3 of our newest blog followers and we are thankful they stopped by last Thursday to meet us! Please introduce yourself to them today!

1. Meet MewMew the cat and Ande the Border Collie who share their lives with their blog mom, Marg,  a donkey, and a few goats too!

2. My next friend, Jill, is not only beautiful but she's also a mom of 2 cute little girls and she's a stay at home mom as well. Go over and meet Jill to read all about her crafts, her recipes, and her fun activities for children today! You'll enjoy her blog, I promise!

3. My other new friend is Maddy and she is 1 year and 7 months old. She lives in NJ with my Mommy and Daddy and she is very loved and very spoiled! She loves to play fetch, play with other dogs, cuddle, and be with her family (especially her cousins Grayce the Weim and Danger the Greyhound).


  1. We have to admit that we haven't heard of a "Tree Walker Coonhound" specifically, but we totally would know you are some type of hound dog - the ears totally give it away! My cousin's dog looks like a big beagle too - they told her she was a beagle when she adopted her as a puppy, but she is super big and tall!

    And we can't wait to visit the three today (if the computer behaves - it is acting up!) We know Marg, but haven't met the other two yet!

  2. Ok, not sure if my last comment went through because I got an error so sorry if I duplicate!

    Although we haven't heard of a Tree Walker Coonhound specifically we would totally have guessed you were some type of hound because your ears totally give it away! My cousin has a dog of unknown breed that looks like a big beagle - they told her she was one when they adopted her as a puppy but she is way too tall and big - but not houndlike so we know she isn't a Tree Walker Coonhound!

    And we can't wait to meet the Thankful Fur 3 for today - we know Marg already but hope to meet the other two if our computer cooperates (it is acting up today).

  3. That is a great story about the Tree Walker coonhound. I have heard of them and seen some of them. Probably none of the ones I have seen were as nice as yours. There are so many varieties of coonhounds.
    Thanks so much for honoring us in the blog hop. That sure was nice of you.
    have a great day.

  10. thanks for visiting our blog! we wanted to come over and say hi :)

  11. Thanks for stopping by my blog, it is always very nice to make new friends. I see we've got a lot of pals in common too. Hey, I like you blog lots so I'll be back to see you!!!

  12. I used to have a tallish beagle, and she was a Harrier/beagle mix, but she passed in February. Now I have my Walker coonhound, and I think this dog has the best personality! So many on line agree, and I get the questions all the time about the tall beagle too. I live in New England and my girl came from Tennessee!


Woof! Meow! Meow! Thanks for leaving a comment!
