  Candid picture of the Month.

This month I would like to introduce the family of Red Shuttleworth. Below Red talks about the wolfhounds his family have had over the years.


We are having a blast with Peaches. Quite a girl… wild and antic with my grown son, sweet with my wife and me. Wonderful companion for me. Sort of a director of routines and schedules.

My son, Luke, in adolescence, had a Carol Gabriel Wolfhound… Famous Cal:

#18 Cal and Luke
And my son, however much he adores Peaches
(and he also loves the cow-dog mutt he rescued
six years ago from an irrigation canal when it was a puppy),
Luke always insists that his Famous Cal
was the ultimate Irish Wolfhound.
Famous Cal was extraordinarily athletic and super-bright

and that hound and my son were like brothers… mutually devoted.


Peaches is a family Irish Wolfhound…
loves us all.
But Peaches has
declared herself my secretary/adviser:


Peaches and Red, 7-7-14 b

Nothing beats a Wolfhound.

Best wishes,
