Guinness, my Irish Stout

Guinness came into our lives at 9 or 10 months. He was a very needy boy who wanted LOTS of attention. Here is the first day he came to live with us...and look how small they both are!

We were very fortunate to get Guinness because wolfhounds do best with other wolfhounds, so having Saige made for a perfect match. She was the best company for Guinness, and he settled in beautifully! He stopped demanding for so much attention and just played with Saige instead, and they tired each other out...then would curl up and sleep, creating an even tighter bond.

And here is your official Cuteness Overload Warning...

And most of these baby pictures are from Scott Kerr at and lucky for us he gave us a chance to re-home Guinness so he did not have to fly back to his Kennel in the USA.

Are you my Mommy?

We were so lucky to have such a GIFT from all the wonderful people that GAVE Guinness to us. We will never forget it.


  1. Oh - our human has gone all high pitched and squeaky again - and that's even AFTER you posted a cute overload warning, he he he!! Adorable - we especially like the photo of him 'caught in the act' chewing the cushion! Aw, our human knows how you feel as they feel just the same watching the two of us growing up together and getting on so well. Wonderful post! Tail wags - JD and Max.

  2. Now, thanks to pics like these, I'll have to let hubby get a wolfie! I don't know if I should be excited or what...I choose excited.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Love, love,love these baby pix of Guiness! What an adorable pup - sounds like Saige was an excellent "mom" from the start to help G. settle in! Also sounds like both you AND G. were incredibly lucky!

  12. Cuteness overload is an understatement!!! Oh my God, what a GORGEOUS puppy you were! (Well, a gorgeous adult too!) I just love the one with the funny pink 'bunny ears'...oooh!

  13. Wooo! One of the cutest puppies I have ever seen. We are so glad Guinness and Saige found each other, and you!
    We are so glad Guinness and Saige found each other

  14. I felt the same way when I came home and my Beautiful Raja was there to take care of me and show me how to be a mastiff. Then she crossed over the bridge and I was very sad.

    Momma says that I have raised Pee-Wee to be some sort of labrastaff. Whatever. Its good to have a pal.


  15. My mom person says it's so cute she can't stand it. We've been petitioning my dad person to get me a baby brother. Maybe we'll show this post to him.

  16. My goodness you sure grew a lot! My human said if I'd had a growth spurt like that she wouldn't have anywhere to put me!
