The Magnificent Five 

Only 5 Wolfhounds this year, but they made a HUGE impression!!  Jack, Banshee, Tanner, O’Malley, and Fiona walked with their proud families and received applause all along the Parade Route.  If we had a Dollar for every picture taken, we could all retire in style.

We met some very important people, especially the Chief of the Irish Police.  He was visiting from Ireland and was so anxious to have his buddies take pictures of him with Banshee and Tanner.  Love hearing their Irish accent.  🇮🇪
The Captain of San Francisco’s Fire Department.  She is posing with Banshee.  Then, the Police Lieutenant with Tanner.  ☘️

Our Hounds were Celebrities !!  They deserve ANOTHER First Place Award !!!   🤞
