Cove Creek's Clancy Allen -  Clancy joined us in April 1996 at
11 weeks of age. After having been informally interviewed by
his breeder.  Which required a visited with his breeder 2 times;
driving 130 + miles one way before we were approved and
before Clancy was even born.  This was a  great opportunity to
get to know Clancy's breeder and learn more about her and her
hounds (Patricia Falvey-Looper).  Today if you are thinking
about getting a puppy be prepared.  Most reputable breeders
will insist on doing an interview and contracts with prospective
buyers.  They're first concern is for the well fare of that puppy
and where it will be living the rest of it's life.  For the first time
when we had questions or just wanted to share something
special with his breeder we felt comfortable about picking up
the phone to call Pat.  Clancy  has a typical Irish wolfhound
temperament.  Clancy however was our first chow hound.  
Devouring anything you put in his bowl.  Soon we had an
overweight hound with the help of his breeder and an
appropriate diet we have been successful at maintaining his
correct weight.  Almost 5 months after celebrating Clancy's
10th Birthday, with great sorrow and much heartbreak we had
to let our beloved Clancy go July 24,2006.  He was the
changing force behind our lives and wolfhounds.  His presence
was undoubtedly larger than life.  Run like the wind our Sweet
Clancy until we meet again we will send our love on the wings
of butterflies.
