VERY LITTLE news this week, but some lovely show wins to report.      Steven Ritchie took his Broughadowey Raiden at Torrfionn to Tayside and Lochee where Claire McGregor awarded him BP hound and G2. Linda Younie then gave him the nod for BPIS. I think I’m right in saying this is Steven’s fir...

Irish Wolfhounds - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

MORE SAD news this week. I heard that Ken Johnson, Kathy’s husband, died on Jan 17. Ken was always ringside in the ‘80s and ‘90s, and I know many people who have been around for a time will be upset at his passing.      Although Ken hasn’t been seen at the shows for a while, he al...
