DearFamily and Friends,

My name is Gráinne na Dun na nGall, but you can call me „GRAW-nya.”. I am an Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. In 2009 I got a brother. His name is "Diarmuid" (say "Dear mit").

My huMom and my huDad thought that you might enjoy our biographies as much as they enjoyed (hahaha) their adventures with us. So huMom sat down frequently and wrote them down. Just click on the links below. They will take you to the different chapters.

Our Uncle Philip from Plymouth/ England even composed a lovely tune especially for me, "Princess Gráinne's Jig". Isn't it beautiful?   Want to see me doing agility on “You Tube?” – Click here.

And if you liked to see these pages or want to make any comment:  Why don't you drop me an e-mail?
Thank you! - Love and big slurps - And now scroll down a bit, please.
