Its interesting I have heard from Many people that the Northeast (NJ North) has the most beautiful solid wolfhounds in the world, and that many of the dogs here are nicer than what is coming out of Ireland.... Is this true? Well I don't know but i have heard this from more than a few people. There are some gorgeous dogs in PA and NJ as well as MA where I got Natalie... I had been stalking hounds for a long time and loved the hounds from my breeder so we waited... the breeder told me that she only gives show dogs to her friends so I vowed on that day to be her friend. That I would make an absolute pest out of myself so that in the end she felt comfortable placing a dog with me and two years later I got Natalie... so yeah I waited years for her. A year before I decided on a breeder and two years once we actually started waiting. Worth every minute, there are hounds all over but I htink because of the quality of the hounds there might be more here than in other places. I am taking Natalie out to show in Montana this summer and there are no hounds out there....

I am infatuated with Natalie, her eyes are so soulful.

Don't see Irish Wolfhounds in my area. She will draw lots of attention when you are in Montana.

Even up here where there are more of them you don't see alot of them... I can' tell you how many people comment on how a wolfhound is their dream dog but they had never seen one in person before... She gets a ton of attention no matter where she goes... Montana ought to be interesting ... I am going to visit a friend for a bit and will toss Nats in the car and go... hit a couple shows along the way ....

Thank you so much for both the pictures and the words of wisdom. We perused thru your website and your both threads last evening and it was an eye opening for my 15 yo daughter. She is in love with both Natalie and Meir. But like every kid she thinks she wants something and we have to open their eyes as far as the responsibilities that come with the wants.
