Ranald Hunting Hounds

It was Christmas eve in the work-hoose - well not quite - but . . .

Christmas Day is nearly here, so to keep with the Christian theme check out todays little blogged image. When a deerhounds human companion is busy in the jewelers shop having the ‘Rocks’ or ‘Nuggets’ set into a ring, deerhounds are spending a more interesting Christmas eve in the Deerhound History department of the National Museum of Scotland.

The image you see accompanying this post is from the broken shaft of a commemorative cross from Texa, Islay. The period is late 14th century and showing Ranald, son of John, 1st Lord of the Isles. It was Ranald who gave rise to the name Clanranald. Of-course it was we deerhounds who kept Ranald and his clan in rich food as you can see depicted on the cross.

Hopefully all deerhounds will be rich in food throughout this winter season so Merry Christmas to all and may your God, Gods or faith bring you peace!
