Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Since my wife and I have had Irish Setters we seem to have run the range of medical problems from
A to Z.
The strangest was with Fred who is my ,very healthy, seven year old.When he was a puppy we noticed a small lump on his neck just above his chest.It got bigger and when he was about 6 months old the vet investigated and thought it was nothing to worry about,By the time he was year old it was even bigger so the vet decided to remove it.When I went to the Veterinary Hospital to collect Fred the vet handed me a sample tube with a strange red haired thing inside it.It looked like an embryo and it was! Fred had absorbed one whilst in the womb.The vet ,nor any of the staff, had ever seen such a thing .
I 'phoned the person who bred him and she was amazed and then ,laughingly ,said " I should have charged you double ,you got two for the price of one!"
ohhh , my! that belongs in an oddity news article. I bet you were so happy it was not something life threatening .
And if we get some more strange replies we can write a new TV show: DogHouse :)
We already have one episode!
