We so want them to be immortal, but sadly it doesn't happen, and before we know it, the years have flown by. Saying goodbye to two huge personalities in our lives, so special, and so special to all who met them, Aust Ch. Amhurst Prinsessan Aniara on 25th October and her sire, Aust Ch. Copper's Prins Trollmane (Imp Sweden) on 25th November. We three had so many wonderful times over the twelve and thirteen and a half years. Bless you both. No more Nomie hugs, and you hadn't been hugged until…

"Sympathy for trying to look after a setter who needs to be restricted. From my own experience, a nightmare. So glad to hear your good news and looking forward to your pics of Arthur running around. All the best, Howard."

"Same old story, same old song... have look at some of the older posts and you will see, that you have a perfectly normal setter at home. I doubt, castration is the solution and will help - I would not even consider this, just because he is young and…"
