What can I say to introduce you to the Irish Wolfhound, what
is in our opinion the best of the hounds.
He is the gentle Giant of the Dog World. As caring and gentle with
a young baby as he is with the sick or elderly. For centuries he
has had Myths and Legends woven around him. He can be a complete
clown or the noble hound that has been the companion of Kings and
Queens. He is not a guard dog, but would lay down his life for a
loved Master. He is the embodiment of the saying Gentle when Stroked,
Fierce when Provoked. Once one of these noble hounds have owned
you, you will never be without one again!
He will listen to your troubles, be
your devoted friend in your hour of need, but if he thinks you are
asking too much or being unreasonable he will be as deaf as a post
or as stubborn as a mule. He loves his creature comforts and is equally
at home in front of the fire on his favourite couch as he is running
free as the wind.
Most other dogs are content with a conventional car to travel in,
but Irish Wolfhounds want (or rather need) wither a van or a station
wagon. He would far rather stay at home than accompany you on an early
morning run. They take years to mature then grow old quickly, leaving
you devastated when they die.
He is the aristocrat of the dog world and yet has a sense of humor
most other dogs wouldn't dream about.
He gets just as much fun out of waking you in the morning
with soaking wet whiskers in your face as tipping hot tea or coffee
all over you from a well judged nudge at your elbow. He will sit
and watch you with an inane grin as you scold him from coming inside
with dirty paws.
They are the most loving, caring, serene and understanding of dogs.
They seem to know what you're thinking before you do. They are large,
take up more room than any other dog, can be aggravating when pretending
that they have just gone amazingly deaf or blind to the havoc they
have wrought on your garden or house. Like leaving a rather large
hole in the newly sown lawn, or chewing the mat in the bathroom.
They enjoy pruning the roses (or just sniffing them). Drive you
demented on the one hand then come to you for love on the other.
BUT you still could not do without one of the noblest and loving
