Next year's magazine!
As the new Irish Wolfhound Club magazine editor, I am asking for your help with the next magazine, coming out in 2019. I am looking for articles and adverts, and am also thinking of doing a page of photos of your Irish Wolfhound as a cute young puppy and then as a wonderful veteran. If you have any send details, including age in photo and pet name, to the email address below.

It's YOUR magazine, YOU can influence its content and YOU can help to make it a success. So, if you would like to submit an article for inclusion, place an advert, supply a photo (at as high a resolution as possible please) or if you just want to make an enquiry, please email me at:

Thank you.
