A Little Irish

by Houndstooth on

There’s a saying most people have heard, “we’re all a little Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day.”  It certainly is a day when everyone wants to be Irish, whether they actually have a claim to the Emerald Isle or not.  I do have a little Irish background on my mom’s side, so I’ll be wearing my […]

A Little Irish Canine History

Bunny here at the keyboard, sharing a little Irish canine history on this fine Saint Patrick’s Day.

Saint Patrick And The Hounds

Since today is Saint Patrick’s Day and I love history and legends, I thought it would be fun to share one here with you today.  A lot of Greyhound history is tied to Ireland and the Irish are actually given credit for saving the breed from extinction in the Middle Ages.  However, today’s story is […]

It Was A Good Day For A Parade

by Houndstooth on

Bunny here, sharing a bit about my Saint Patrick’s Day. Mom had some important errands to run on Thursday which I don’t really understand.  Part of it involved getting important papers and moving them to other places for different important papers.  I don’t really understand why humans like paper so much, but I don’t judge. […]
