I’ve had Wolfies since 1988...Maggie, Maire, Enya, Siobhan, Medbh, Fiona, Ruari, Clare and Aife.
The longest living one lived one week after her 9th. birthday. You are VERY blessed to have one live to 12.
The only bad thing about the breed is their short lifespans. They never act hyper — not even when they’re pups. And they don’t act up in the house. NICE, NICE dogs.
I dread the day when I’m too old to have one.
We purchased our first Wolfhound, Bonnie in 1977 after a wolf attacked our 2 Irish Setters, killing one and severely wounding the other. The only creatures she feared were moose. She chased black and grizzly bears from our yard.
Our second was a rescue, Boshaylah, that we got in 1986. Both ours were fawn color, Bonnie being close to white. Both slept in the middle of the bed and they loved to travel. I took them with me wherever I went, including work.
Are any of yours related to one another? What colors are they?
