Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Being a Setter is...
...Running like the wind
...Sleeping with your belly up
...Mastering the art of owner training
...Putting on a mud coat and look even better
...Making your owner take off the mud coat... With a smile
...Being predictably unpredictable
...Knowing how to push sadness away
...Making a crowd laugh
...Melting hearts with a single look
...Being the best kept secret in the canine world!
Maybe we could take everyone's suggestions and make a decent top ten!
It would at least be fun!
That are our boys ..
... eating cat/horse poo and looking up to you while chewing it with that "i didn't eat this mum" look
... pawing !!
... swimming like a seal, even with head under water
Yes, mine does and is very specific, like:
... standing by the bath tub looking at the tab and saying 'Uohh', meaning 'please open, I'm thirsty'.
... standing by the food bowl, looking at the bowl and then at me and then at the box in the back, where I store the food and then saying 'Uoohh' - I think that meaning can't be mistaken:-)).
... Smiling - haven't got a smiler at the moment but had a rescue many years ago who could grin for England. Frightened the life out of the plumber - he wouldn't get out of his van until I 'restrained' her!!!
... Giving out - an Irish expression for the talking and very apt especially at meal times.
... Yawning when being told off - the equivalent of 'whatever'.
