The origins of the Irish Wolfhound stretch so far back that it is almost a creature of legend. Folklore is full of tales of the faithfulness of these great hounds during their long association with man. In this book Linda Gover gives us their history in depth, telling us of the very early times and how the breed was revived in the last century, having all but disappeared. She also brings us up to date with modern show history and gives us hints about such topics as general care, breeding, showing, obedience and lure coursing.
Linda has owned Irish Wolfhounds for 20 years under her Owenmore affix and, although breeding only occasionally, she has made up several Irish champions. Owenmore hounds have also gained titles in Great Britan and the United States. She is licensed to judge Irish Wolfhounds and various other hound breeds at championship level. Her love of the breed and her expertise are evident throughout the book, which is a 'must' for anyone with an interest in sighthounds.
