Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Do any of your IS have a claim to fame? About 2 years ago we had a request from Hamilton and Wellington's breeder to get the boys to London the next day as The Friday Night Project had a need for 2 Reds. We took them on the train from Pluckley and at Tonbridge were moved up to 1st class as there was little room for them to spread out where we were. You should have seen the look from some of the passengers in 1st class. From Waterloo Station we walked to the London weekend studios signed them in and then waited outside the restaurant for their Guest Appearance. Geri Halliwell, Lionel Blair, Alan Carr among others made a great fuss of them and the 'boys' were so well behaved everyone wanted to know if they were always so 'calm and collected'.
During the filming they had to stand beside a wheelbarrow full of beautifully arranged carrots and Wellington could not take his eyes off them - we thought any minute and they'd be all over the floor.
The programme celebrating the Reds went out on the Friday night without any hiccups and we really had a great day out and loads of fun
