Dog Shows
Showing dogs is something I do with our Wolfhounds only.  It is also something
we do rarely.  We prefer to go to Wolfhound-specific events such as fun matches
or specialities, though we have occasionally went to all-breed shows.  It is also fun
to show in Canada.  Our favorites are the
Great Lakes Irish Wolfhound
Association
(GLIWA), the Locust Grove Irish Wolfhound Association, and the
newly-formed, local,
Northstar Irish Wolfhound Club Matches.
