And speaking of shop pets, Fred Cuthbert of Wolfhound Cycles in Talent, Oregon, says this on his website of his company's namesake:
"The Wolfhound head badge was designed in the likeness of the factory mascot, Duncan. After nine years of loyal friendship I recently lost him to bone cancer. My fondness for him was (and is) strong enough to inspire the name of the company. Like the Irish Wolfhound breed, Wolfhound Cycles are strong and fast. Being the tallest breed, the name also reflects my affinity for 29” wheels. Another reason I knew the name was perfect is the fact that Wolfhounds are one of the oldest breeds, having left their footprints in the history of royalty and heroics."
His dedication to the Wolfhound (Katie is pictured below with Fred) is rivaled only by his dedication to creating the best ride of his customer's life!
