FUN TRIVIA:  Far more than just companions to the Celts, dog hounds were crucial for hunting and protecting the clan. The Celtic dog was more closely related to the wolf back in their time – a far cry from the domesticated dog today. Yet, still the Celts shared a great partnership with the wolf-hound, and respected their fearlessness.

They  even used animals as a totem to their clan and as an honoured title like Arthur and the bear or cucalainn of hound.  other names are
