We were warned...

You never have just one. Once you have one sweet goofy hound, you just want another, and they are so much happier in packs. We were ok with that, we have been on the lookout for another Irish Wolfhound, as company for Finn. Preferably a female, and younger. But we weren't having much luck.

We happened to hear about a litter of Scottish Deerhound puppies at a Celtic event, and our ears perked up. Bill has always wanted a Scottish Deerhound (all that Scottish ancestry...). Scottish Deerhounds are another rare breed. They share a lot of the same traits, same wonderful temperament, but a bit smaller and lighter (and faster) than their Irish cousins.

We thought a SD sister would be just the thing for Finn (and us!) So we talked to the breeder, and this weekend had a chance to visit the puppies.

We got there after the morning energy had been worked off, so they spent a lot of time napping in the shade.

This is two different litters, about 8 days apart. Some are 9 weeks, some 10 weeks old.

This lovely girl planted herself at Mandy's feet and requested attention.

She had visited Bill earlier, and also came to see me.

How could you resist that face? There wasn't a puppy in either litters that wasn't spectacular, so any new owner would be well pleased.
