Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I gave the giraffe, Jerry to Hammer for his birthday. Jerry was one of two of Hammer's favourite toys. Jerry and his other favourite toy stayed in the hospital with Hammer. I buried his other toy with him. Hammer used to bring Jerry to bed at night. Hammer was always the first of my Setter kids to come to bed with me. His favourite place was lying down the end of the bed with his head on my legs or my knees. To help me cope with losing Hammer, I clutch Jerry tightly every night now when I go to sleep. Hobson is glued beside me and Rose lies on a dog bed where I can reach down and touch her. We all comfort each other.
