Regimental Mascot

In watching the Royal wedding this week I was quite taken by the splendid mascot of the Irish Guards - this magnificent Irish wolfhound, named Conmael.  Impressively, this hound even has a medal!


It was a big day for everyone...
And so it occurs to me that in building my next HQ unit, perhaps I need to add an appropriate mascot.

No wonder he was tired, that coat must have been bleeding heavy.

I prefer the Welsh Guards Regiment's goat mascot, myself.

Is the Irish Wolfhound featured in the 1975 American Movie, Against a Crooked Sky? The dog's name in the movie is B'ar Killer (Bear Killer), although there isn't such a grizzly sceen. I've searched everywhere to locate an answer and hope you know! Thanks from avid trivial me.
