Well they may chase the deer in their hearts, but no luck in reality.  Their chasing is limited to "bunnies" and only non-living ones at that.  These are what drive them to their divine madness.  Most of these are the white plastic kind (lures) either at events or at home.  They long to chase the the fluffy long tailed ones   (cats and squirrels)  but are not allowed to those any more than the deer...or even the real hare that they occasionally see while on walks now that they are in the wilderness. They must contend with the plastic ones and the stuffed ones that don't run but can be flung around the house and killed when the madness reaches a peak! These latter are also good for tormenting each other into further madness by trying to keep them away from the other.  And for occasional indoor fetch with the humans, that Bran  (the Greybrador Retriever) loves so much.


The Pack

We  adopted Irony on June 18, '98 from Greyhound Placement Service after a long canineless wait.   To check out her story and more pictures click on her picture or her name. We lost her to lBraniver disease on August 18, 04 and will miss her always.

On Feb 6 ,'99 we brought Bran from GPS to foster with us. Well, it didn't work out......because on May 12 we drove back to GPS and signed the adoption papers!   We lost him suddenly in March of 2008, exactly one year to the daScolaighe's unique sitting style. Anyone see this before?y that we lost our horse Saoradh.

Since moving to Colebrook NH we are no longer involved in LGRA or SCA coursing, which you will see mentioned on their pages. We also aren't really doing much in the way of "meet and greet" either, but keep looking for possible venues up here. 

On March 22, 2003 we finally made another trip to Goffstown and adopted Scolaighe. She was a wonderful addition, mellow and cuGleann at 4 weeks, first puppy picturesddly. She became ill several years ago, something causing her brain to swell, but remained lovey and cuddly so we cared for her while she seemed to be happy until it was time to say good-bye in December of 2009.

In July of 2004 we parted from our hound-only ways and got a Border Collie/Australian Shepherd/Chow mix puppy. We wanted a "working pet" and someone offered us the puppy so we went for it. .You can clrlaithick on his photo or name to meet Gleann.

After the loss of Irony and then Bran, and other losses in our life, we finally were able to adopt another Greyhound on November 25, 2009. We couldn't handle knowing we were going to lose Scolaighe without some new life in our house. Our pack coloration also diversified again with the addition of rlaith, a lovely fawn girl. She's yet another bounced "loser" who has fit right in very quickly. She left us  Feb. 22,  2014.C Mr

After we lost Scolaighe, we started thinking about adding to our pack again. So January 27, 2010, Aaron and rlaith went on down to GPS and picked up a loser buddy of hers, now known as C Mr.So we are back to three.  Sadly, he left us in July, 2013

Meet Sachairi That debate, of course, gets intervened when a friend notes that a dog is in need of a home. Sometimes the dog isn't what we have in mind, but that doesn't mean he's not perfect. This was the case when a friend of a friend was looking for a home for 10 year old Sachairi, who has happily joined our pack on Black Friday, 2010.  We lost him  on Feb. 6, 2016.

After losing C, we were down to one hound, rlaith, along with the fluffy dogs and cat.  Due to her tendency to stress over pack changes, even good ones, we decided to wait and when she passed we were houndless for the first time since that fateful day in 1998.  It took us a few months, but we finally felt ready and when we were, so was Grinne, who came to live with us on July 22, 2014. She lost her battle with cancer on March 2, 2017 at only 7 years old.

CairbreFor several months Gleann had the difficult job of being an only dog for the first time in his life. We wanted to adopt again, but our finances were devestated by the vet bills we had. We were hoping for sometime this fall or winter when, just as we came home with our second cat (see below) we were offered a hound who turned out to be Grinne's half-brother. There was no way we could say "no" to that so on Sept. 7, 2017Ruadhan Aaron drove down to GPS in Dover and picked up Cairbre!  

While Gleann and Cairbre bonded, we knew that Gleann always was closest to the female hounds. As he continued to decline over the year since we got Cairbre, we hoped to get another female hound when we could. As we were a bit more specific in what we wanted we waited until we had stabalized our finances a bit and, of course, when we were ready there were no girls available. So we were referred to the Maine GPS where we met Ruadhn on October 6, 2018 and brought her home.

The Pride


  In 2011 we, surprisingly, ended up with a cat as well. He came from the same home as Sach almost exactly a year later. This is Merlin. We tried to change his name to something more Gaelic but it never took and now we know why.....Nimue

Then in 2017 we heard someone else we knew was moving overseas and looking for a home for their elderly black female cat named.....Nimue.  Well with that name  it was obviously fated to be, so on August 31 we picked her up. 

 In part because we've been less active with hound activities, we don't update here that much. Instead we have The Beasts of Dn Sgthan Facebook page.

We also have a page of photos of  more than one together, which I try to update on occassion.
