Cu Sha is 13 months old, he was 3 mnths when we got him and he has, in 13 months, gone from being a really tiny puppy into a >pup< that is as big as a grown man. (… but sweeter) . He is still a puppy, despite his size, Irish Wolfhounds do not grow up fully until they are 3 years old. The whole dog stays a puppy for a long while … however, their jaws make a pretty good job of chewing from early on. I have a considerably smaller sartorial choice than before he arrived. He is really fond of having a good chew on fabric, he’s destroyed a very large number of hats, gloves, scarves and all manner of clothing.
Many years ago, we carried 4 hand-made Tibetan rugs back from Nepal. They were on the heavy side. Since then we have had 8 dogs, 5 of them Irish Wolfhounds and only Beloved Cu Sha has chewed the rugs – they all now have corners missing. None of our other dogs have chewed anything much that was not theirs in the first place.
Hmm this Wolf Boy is making up for it.
