have a wee irish pup?

This recent article in the Irish Sunday Tribune points out that several native Irish dog breeds are at risk of disappearing altogether.

Not the Irish wolfhound or the Irish setter -- those are still popular. But now that people are going for tiny critters like Pekes and pugs and chihuahuas, we're starting to miss out on. . .

the Irish red and white setter
the Irish terrier
the Glen of Imaal terrier
the Kerry blue terrier
the Irish soft-coated wheaten terrier
the Irish water spaniel

And you can learn a little bit about them here. Oh, those Glens are so cute!
