Hawk is now 7 months and he has started to follow new girls (dogs) he meets at the park and cleaning them any susgestions on this? Should I be stopping him from doing this or just letting the girls go after him when they get tired of it?

I am sure the Aussies are just as cute as the Irish......

I have one older girl Henna who has turned 9 and a younger boy who has just turned 2........this is the first time I have had a boy always had girls......& he is such a Mumma's boy......He is related to Jackies Seamus....half brothers I think

Both of my Irish's have been boys and I think boys tend to be mommy boys. Scout was more then Hawk is. Hawk is more busy entertaining himself then Scout was also. My girls Aussies' are 14 and 11 so Hawk makes up games when they will not play or get too bossy with him.

How did you come to get Irish after having Aussies?....be a bit of a difference..

Yeah I have found the girls to be far more bossy then the boys......heheheh always about them

Read the Big Red stories growing up so I always wanted an Irish but did not have the time for one. My first dog as an adult was an Aussie and had four more over the years they are a wonderful breed and very sweet I was lucky and none of mine were hyper they are happy just spending their day with me. When I turned 50 I finally looked into an Irish and after researching breeders in the area I got Scout three years ago. Even though I lost him to illness last year I knew there was no other breed I want in my life at this time. They are so gentle and loving. Not that my Aussies aren't Lady has been my girl since the day she was born (from a litter I breed) I knew she was the one. Tiz was a plain Jane offered to me by a friend and we were partners in agility until three years ago when she retired.

The boys have been so much fun they do not take anything seriously except for birds. Everything has been a game. Even when you are trying to be firm they turn it around. So many times I end up laughing at something when I should be letting them know what they are doing is completly not exceptable.

In my experience both breeds are similar in many was just not in looks.

I think Big Red has a lot to answer to...I also got hooked on Irish after seeing that movie....
I am sorry you lost your Scout, its never easy to loose a much loved friend..But Hawk sounds a sweetie...as do your girls....I do not know anyone with Aussies although have seen some doing obedience and some in the show ring

Hi, I'm Corinna from Germany and I love all my Irish Setters! Five living with me, and about 36 formerly puppies living in their families.
