Ruag was sadly PTS (old age finally caught up with him). Ruag
was the sire of three champions and the best companion anyone
could wish for. He aways went to work on the farm, in the Landrover,
with Alan and his best friend Joe. And, when not at work he could
still be found up in the farmyard with Joe, both of them having
jumped 3 farm gates to get there. Ruag coursed at one of the last
Deerhound Club coursing meetings proving to be a very keen hound
and he went lamping with his Deerhound friend, John Wiggans Bookle
but he could never be fooled into chasing a lure. Ruag travelled
on the ferry to Islay, walked in the Highlands of Scotland, climbed
with us to the summit of Skiddaw, was a keen spotter of Red deer
and was our best friend. We loved him dearly and he is very much
missed by us and his pack. Ruag is now in Deerhound heaven chasing
those big Reds with his beloved wife Cara, but he lives on in
his daughter Orrin and his grandchildren Mallie, Fionne, Buie
and Lochan. R.I.P. Roo.
