Lagan Sightings
Our almost 4 year old Irish Wolfhound dog (for more information about us)

Lagan as an Adult
Irish Wolfhounds tend to be fairly low energy dogs as adults.  He spends most of his time inside sleeping.  We still participate in things like the St Patrick's Day parade.

Lagan suddenly became a wonderful dog when he turned 2 years old.  It was like the "brain fairy" came.

Giant breed dogs tend to mature slowly and die at a young age.  The average lifespan of an Irish Wolfhound in the US is 6 to 8 years.  So Lagan is at the prime of life.  


In the beginning ...

Lagan was born in January of 2004 in just north of the Dublin Airport in Ireland.  His mom was Irish, but his daddy was American.  We were able to bring him home when he was 12 weeks old.  He was already 40 pounds. 

He lived with us in a 6th floor apartment for 10 days prior to shipping him to the US.  Let me tell you, trying to housebreak a puppy in a 6th floor apartment sucks.  I probably mopped out the elevator 3 or 4 times a day.  One down side of owning a large breed dog is that they can make huge puddles.


Lagan at One year

By the time Lagan reached 10 months, he had already reached 140 pounds.  He had the youthful exuberance of a puppy, but the size of an adult.  It is probably the most challenging period.

During Lagan's first year, he took lots of obedience classes and earned his Canine Good Citizen certificate. 

We spent a lot of time at the dog park.  We marched in the Raleigh St Patrick's Day parade.  We attended this region's annual Irish Wolfhound gathering.
