St Patrick's Day ParadeMarch 16th, 2013, starting at 12:30 pm.
We like to meet about a half hour early to get in line, and get organized. So meet at the corner of 4th & Jefferson at noon.
This is a really fun and fulfilling event, as the parade goers love our magnificent hounds, and we love showing them off! Please come out, we march rain or shine (as we know it's generally rain), and we have a blast. Brush your dogs, groom them, just making them look as handsome as possible. If you have some sort of Pt. Paddy's colored or themed decor to put on them and you, that is great! But the hounds are the most important part.
Weather permitting, we will stop for "afters" on the outdoor patio of the Elephant & Castle, 1415 5th Ave Seattle, Wa
Irish Days at Emerald DownsJune 23, 2013
Family time 1-5
We are welcome at any or all of these times.
Hilary wants to make us happy so we will bring the hounds to future Irish Days. So please have your dogs clean, brushed and lookin good.
They will have 1 and are looking for a second tent for us. Bring one if you have one and we can put it up if more are needed. Bring X-Pens if you wish.
Wolfhounds are most impressive as a pack so I think all hounds there should go to the winner's circle and introduce them with name and age.
