1if1 Nite Lite Photo Of The Day~

Some “gentle giants” captured my heart this past weekend while attending the Irish Festival in Timonium. I met some of the most majestic dogs in the world…

The Irish Wolfhound is the tallest of all dogs, measuring 35 inches high. Like the mastiff and the greyhound, the Irish Wolfhound has a very ancient history. Early Irish literature refers to these dogs as “Irish dogs,” “Big Dogs of Ireland,” Greyhounds of Ireland,” “Great Hounds of Ireland,” and “Wolfdogs of Ireland.” The wolfhound was probably the favored dog of the Celts as they wandered and hunted in Ireland as likeness of the hounds can be found in Celtic engravings.
