While I would never post photos of or boast about my children, I will tell you all about our adorable new puppy, Herschel, a two month old German Shepherd. I went out to Pennsylvania looking for antiques and wound up bringing back something much furrier.
Herschel has swiftly taken over our household and immersed us in canine cuteness. With him in mind, here are some great illustrations and dog-related ephemera that I currently have available.
I wouldn't want to leave out images of my favorite breed- The German Shepherd Dog. While I love many and most breeds of dog, Shepherds just epitomize, for me, dog-ness. I have some lovely colored prints of Strongheart. Strongheart (1917 - 1929) was a male German Shepherd Dog who became one of the earliest canine film stars. He appeared in several movies, including a 1925 adaptation of White Fang. Some of these pictures were highly successful, and did much to encourage the popularity of the German Shepherd breed.
A popular celebrity in his day, Strongheart paved the way for the much better remembered Rin Tin Tin.
