Thanks Howard.  I guess I shoulda looked closer.   You can clearly see the leaves and bark are not walnutty at all.   I was sorta trying to tie it back in to walnut.  As far as the dog ID,  very few hounds out here in big sky sheep...

Nice work.  I like the headstock.   I'm also a fan of tops that look like wood.
