Our Annual Fun Match

Hi: we had a wonderful time showing and playing with our Irish Wolfhounds. Not a lot of dogs were entered in the conformation classes, but we had tons of dogs entered in the dogs games. There is talk of expanding the dog game part of the fun match because of how much fun it was. A big Thank You goes to Lissa Burr for organizing the day for us.

SATURDAY, MARCH 11th 2017 @11:30 AM

The Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club (NCIWC) had over twenty hounds and their humans walk the parade this year. The parade route took us and our Wolfhounds down Market Street and eventually to the judge’s reviewing stand which is located in front of San Francisco City Hall. The day was warm and bright, with the crowds eager to see our hounds.

Dillon Beach New Years Fun Day 1-1-2017

20 Wolfhounds howled in the New Year, along with their families and friends, at Dillon Beach!  The Luck of the Irish prevailed once again as we enjoyed a rain free  –  wind free day in our “special place”.  Prior to and after January 1st, the weather was very stormy. -Carol Gabriel-

DATE:  Saturday, January 21st, 2017

The weather cleared and was perfect for a walk along the wharf. Lots of big fluffy clouds with blue sky between. Heavy seas sent waves crashing into the shore. Some of the waves broke high enough to flood the walking trail. As always the day was fun and the food was and service at the restaurant was great. The weather held off most of the day, until the afternoon after we finished.

More pictures of the day in the club event photo gallery.
