OH YES I DID SEE IT .... I LOVE IT... just love it... wolfhounds are honestly just wonderful dogs... and that smile he has on his face when he is rolled over is so typical wolfhound joy... I see that face on natalie all the time and every wolfhound I have met.. they all have that happy joyous face and it makes me smile

Bentleys... they are quite big and the males are substantially larger than the bitches... Natalie is about 125 lbs but her father is 175 and when she stands up on her hind legs she is taller than I am...

One of my customers, a long time ago, had a Wolfhound and he towered over my Dane. Jake, (my Dane), was small for a male at 32", but their Wolfhound was still the tallest dog I have ever met...and I've been around some very tall Great Danes and he was still taller than any of them.

It's kind of disconcerting when you first meet one in person even if you're used to big dogs. My mom was in my shop when they brought him in once, and this was my mom's face... She had been around Jake for 2 years at the time and even she was taken aback.

they are huge and I see that people either run up to see her and are totally enamored of her OR they cross the street and walk away.... most people want to see her and visit her... if I take her out to a street fair or anything like that it takes us HOURS to get anywhere... she is much larger than a friends great dane bitch of the same age... I was at home depot a couple weeks ago and a guy there insisted his dane was bigger than nats... well I was there the other day and the guy (works there) comes up and says that he measured his dog and nats is two inches taller

Lol, when I showed my parents an Irish Wolfhound, they were so scared of how one could manage a dog of such size!
