Kitty we almost bought an Irish Wolfhound, only hubby wasn't allowed to go over the border with me to choose one... all the breeders were in the South, not the North.

I ended up with my lovely Cream labrador Sadie instead, her parents were huge working dogs... and she was intelligent, stubborn and lazy and bigger than most mainland labradors... oh and greedy as well. I still miss her so much, she died in 2002 aged 14.

I'm just terrified of deep water.................anything over 3 foot and I get the shakes.

Ridiculous considering I am 5' 10" tall................but that's how it is:(
