The photos were taken of the backs of chairs located in the Irish Classroom. The classroom is part of the Nationality Rooms located in The Cathedral Of Learning on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

The last picture was taken from the internet.

The Irish Wolfhound is a giant-sized dog, one of the tallest breeds in the world, reaching the size of a small pony. The head is long and the skull is not too broad. The muzzle is long and somewhat pointed. The small ears are carried back against the head when the dog is relaxed and partway pricked when the dog is excited. The neck is long, strong and well arched. The chest is wide and deep. The long tail hangs down and is slightly curved. The legs are long and strong. The feet are round, with well-arched toes. The wiry, shaggy coat is rough to the touch on the head, body and legs and longer over the eyes and under the jaw. Coat colors include gray, brindle, red, black, pure white or fawn, with gray being the most common.

  1. Wow, I love that chair! I thought they were the tops of canes when I saw the first photo. The wolfhound is even larger than my s-i-l’s Rhodesian Ridgebacks, which are no small creatures themselves!
