Marigny, Ursuline and Ezra are from our first litter of 9, in 2007. They are out of Erinwood Sully’s Third Watch (Sully) and CH Windfern’s Howlin’ Lucinda (Lucy) and are named for Lucinda Williams song titles.
Howlin’s Passionate Kisses MXP MJP CGC (Marigny) acquired 11 points in AKC conformation, a CGC title and held NAP, NJP, OAP, OJP, AXP, AJP, MXP, and MJP titles in agility. She loved competing in AKC agility and as of 2017, is still the only Irish Wolfhound to have ever received a title in Masters Standard Agility. She is also only the 2nd Wolfhound to have ever earned a Master title in Agility. In 2014 she was invited to the AKC Agility Invitational, competed and had a clean run for a perfect 100 score. She was also invited and competed in 2015. In 2016 she and her daughter were invited. Her personality was very strong, intense, fearless and focused, yet tender and gentle other times.
Howlin’s Crescent City (Ursuline) trained in AKC agility and has run in UKI trials. Ursy was a happy, silly, sweet and free-spirited girl. She loved certain aspects of agility, like the table and other obstacles, but didn’t have the same competitive drive of her sister Marigny. She was the the best aunt ever to her nieces and nephews, teaching them to relax on the sofa and bark at squirrels.
Howlin’s Jambalaya Onda Bayou (Ezra) was a strikingly handsome, perfect little boy. When all nine pups were in the yard playing, Ezra often stayed back, watched and assessed what was happening. More than anything, he watched us. Only two girls were planned to be kept from this litter, but Ezra had other ideas. He picked us and for that, we are so grateful. Every moment with him was an absolute joy.
