Pedigree

Hi, meet my ‘Muddy Puppy’, aka MacTire at just over 8 weeks of age.  Frankly his brother looked much more like their sire, my Olcan but it was this boy that drew my eye when he moved!  Even at his young age there was grace and power evident and his deep dark eyes just drew you in.  So Mud puppy became my stud fee puppy pick from the one and only litter I agreed to sire by my Olcan, who was 6 years old at the time.  (sigh)  His nickname of  “Mud Puppy’ was to stay with him for quite some time as he really was muddy coloured poor fellow (lol).

Well the ‘Mud’ puppy is still muddy coloured (lol), but he is beginning to mature and stand out a bit more.  Here is a good picture of the ‘airplane’ ears wolfhound puppies quite often display and in the picture below he is running and play with Aunt Olivia and her daughter Arwen.  Smart boy he is staying a little way back from the two older girls (lol).

and so time has passed and the ‘Mud Puppy’ is .....well not turning into a swan but beginning to show some real promise (lol).  He is physically a combination of his mother and father, with the personality much like his father.  This is exactly what I was looking for!

So here Mac is running with his father, my Olcan who is over 7 years old in this photo and the one below.  In the middle is my Arwen.  These guys love to run and Olcan kept right up with these two youngsters!

Alright, poor Glenn McLaughlin, a good friend of mine who has kindly helped me show a few of my wolfhounds.  The slight frown you see is because Mac is trying to run away a bit towards myself.  I am ahead of them and not in this photo with Mac’s litter brother Merlin.  Merlin’s owner was looking very anxious and nervous and this was both the dogs’ first show at the 2016 IWCC Quebec Regional Show.  I was not suppose to be handling in this class at all since Glenn had kindly agreed to do so for me.  With Merlin’s owner so nervous I offered to take him into the ring for her.  Frankly I made showing Mac so much harder for Glenn as he kept trying to catch up to momma.  Unsurprisingly, Merlin ended up with me taking first in the Group of 12 to 18 month old males and Mac with Glenn took second.  Considering the problem I caused for Glenn and Mac I am proud of this placement and it will not happen again!!! Sorry Glenn (lol).

Here is a good picture of Merlin with Julianna one of his owners and his brother Mac bringing up the rear.  They are actually following myself and their father Olcan.  We were competing for Best Stud Dog and we WON!

So, MacTire and Glenn took second place in the 12 to 18 month old class under Judge Mrs. Csilla Juhash of Glor Na Gael Kennel in Hungary.  My poor fella, seems the  hard work has worn him out, lol.  Second place in a Specialty and being beat by his litter mate is still a good win!

Still in June but after the Quebec Specialty Mac and my friend Kim McLaughlin are getting to know each other better (lol) while I was occupied in the ring with my Arwen.

Here we were in July at the Kingston and District All Breed Show.  Glenn is yes once again handling and I am taking a break.  Mac is a lot like his father and showing the tendency of being a momma’s boy like his father, Olcan who no one can really handle except myself.  Hence why I’ve handed him off to Glenn.  This way I will hopefully avoid that problem.  On this day MacTire took Best of Breed beating the No. 2 wolfhound in Canada!  Way to go you guys!!!

Even if not a breeder you will notice the progression in this young male’s conformation (build) as he matures from those earlier pictures.  He was just 19 months when he won this day!

In August 2016 MacTire took Best of Winners!  He moved well in spite of the heat and I was so proud of him.  With limited showing my MacTire has become a new Canadian Champion!  Thank you Glenn McLaughlin for your help with this young male.

We missed his last show in October 2016 due to car troubles but the best is yet to come in 2017.  As I breed and show more I tend to favour my wolfhounds being photographed in more natural settings and hope to have more candids soon, so stay tuned for further updates.
