Here at Travellers Rest we have two grey Irish Wolfhounds, but don't panic they are not allowed out in the garden to terrorise the guests!
The first is Stanley. He was born in Jan 2017 and comes from Bethleham in the Free State. Stanley is a terrorist of note! You'll notice that the fig tree in the garden has very few leaves and the small peach tree never seems to have any fruit.....
Both (as many Wolfhounds do) love fruit, they both have at least one apple a day and Stanley will eat fresh tomatoes and cucumber, both enjoy vegetables of any kind. Stanley has a taste for alcohol.
Because of their size they are easily able to help themselves to food from any work surface, remove the lids from dustbins etc.
The second is Lompie (don't ask), we re-homed her in July 2022. We are not exactly sure how old she is but we think about four. Lompie is the polar opposite to Stanley in terms of personality, where Stanley likes to be the centre of attention she is quite happy to take a back seat and relax. However she can be a bit of a Diva and stomps her feet if she can't get her own way.
On cooler days both enjoy going out in the car on a quiet deserted dirt road and having sundowners with us. On many occasions we have been accompanied by guests which allows Stanley to practise his two party pieces, the first is to sit on any unsuspecting lap! The second is to help himself from any unattended wine glasses. For him the word unattended also includes when you've just turned your head away to speak to the person next to you!
