For longer than I can remember, I have had a love affair with the Irish Wolfhound.  I don't even think I met one until I was around 12 years of age, but long before then, I knew what lay in my future.  We got our first hound in February, 2002 - Karontara Boba Fett.  She was the beginning of my dream come to life.  Over the years, we have worked our way up to as many as eight hounds in the house.  We currently share our lives with Nefertiti, Lausanne, Salzbug, and our Saluki, Faust.  Our hounds are our cherished companions, first and foremost.  I show them at IW Specialty Shows in Canada and the US, as well as attending the occasional Hound Group specialty.  We have been active with the hounds in lure coursing (when we have had a hound who will course), both with the CSFA and ASFA.  Along with a love for these beautiful hounds, Kate found a love of photography.  Her passion and talent are apparent in her photos (as you can see throughout our site).

It is our aim to breed sound hounds, both in form and function, on a small scale. We strive for type, vigour and athleticism, and much of our focus is on breeding a typical hound that could indeed course and take down a wolf. We also aim to breed hounds that will outlive the "average age of 7 years", and remain vital and strong well into their veteran years.  Our hounds live outside in the yard, and in the house with us.  We believe strongly in natural rearing and feed all of our animals a species appropriate raw food diet.  We also choose alternative/supportive therapies where at all possible.     


Bright Blessings,
