I've always adored that story. I've got a wolfound mix of my own at home, and his eyes tell me he'd be there for me anyday.

I know, aren't they just the best?! I just adore their shaggy look, and their loyal expression. Fabulous breed!

I really love this design. And the story is so moving and beautiful. I have allways loved it, though it makes me sad every time I think of it.

Tell me about it. It's a incredibly depressing story

Indeed. What Gellert did for his master is so great! Just not the 'reward' :(

A sad story, but a nice one. This is a wonderful knot to go with it too!

You are welcome... I just read the story... like in many irish tales it is tragic and sad, yet intense, with a deep meaning. I love stories like that!

Aww. I remember this story from a while back. It was such a sad ending. I felt so sorry for Gelert and his master. This is a really nice picu and its so intricate too. I'm faving this!

Yeah, I can´t imagine how one must feel killing the thing that meant most to them, and then realising it was all done in mistake and hasty judgement

I love knotworks and this is an awesome one! They remind me the hounds on my left arm tattoo, so I have to add that to my faves :worship:
