Murphy, an Irish Wolfhound

 I recently got to meet and photograph Murphy, a 5 year old Irish Wolfhound who is suffering from bone cancer.  He is such a regal and impressive dog.  I had never met that breed before and I learned a lot about them --- they originally guarded castles and hunted wolves to keep the game safe and unfortunately they do not have very long lives, they only live about 7 years.  Murphy was a great poser and I really enjoyed meeting and photographing this gentle giant.  


  1. I think that background in the first shot matches the appearance and bearing of his breed. Nice touch.

  2. Cindi, you did a beautiful job capturing the sweet nature of this gentle giant. I have yet to photograph an Irish Wolfhound, but am still hoping. Great blog. Your work shines!
