We are thrilled to announce that our beloved Rose (Gryffindor's Wild Rose O'Starry Glen) has won Winners Bitch and Best of Winners at the Northern California Irish Wolfhound Specialty.

The entry was 25 class dogs and 36 class bitches. We were excited when she won the open bitch class and then thrilled when she went on to win a five-point major at the Oct. 22 show.
Rosie is only 20 months old!

Thank you to breeder-judge John Lewington of Australia.
Thank you to Rosie's handlers, Bill Buell and Erin Hines.

Farewell, Raleigh

MBSS Can. Am. Ch. Starkeeper Glenamadda Realtan.
Farewell, beloved Raleigh,
July 7, 2002-October 18, 2011.

Thinking today of this Irish Wolfhound who is truly one of the great ones, our mother and grandmother Raleigh.

We all can be thankful for everything she did and accomplished in her life to bring the breed forward ... A global legacy.

Hugging her daughter and grandchildren extra hard,
with thanks.
