On Wednesday of this week I lost a great friend and inseparable companion of over seven years when CuChulainn Deo Irie, my Irish Wolfhound nicknamed Coolin, died in my arms after fighting valiantly for ten days against a deadly infection.
Coolin was of the Super breed from Ireland and stood 40 inches at the shoulders, was 7' 3" from nose to tail, and weighed about 250 pounds. There could be no more loyalty, love and companionship given by one of God's creatures than what Coolin gave me.
While his Gaelic name stood for the Warrior Spirit of Ireland, the Irish Wolfhound are truly the gentle giants of the canine world with a history dating back 3,500 years. I once wrote an article linked below about Living with an Irish Wolfhound.
They are a mystical, spiritual and magical breed and he will be missed.
