Profile Information

How many Irish Setters do you have?
Two, Darwin has been joined by Mac in June 2011 (I still say 2, but it's now only one, the old one passed away in May 2010)
How long have you owned Irish Setters?
15 years
About Me:
I live near the beautiful north coast of Ireland, where Irish setters can have a lot of fun on the beaches or in the woods nearby.
My first setter was Agivey Grouse (aka MC, Tartuffe, Alphonse, Artur - his personality was too big for one name), a dog with FT champions in his pedigree, born in May 1996 and died May 2010. My second IS is Walshestown Darwin, born October 2004, who comes from show dog stock [one grandfather is Thendara the Tourist and the other is Thendara Incognito among Ronzaldo], and he's our wee darlin, Darwin. Our new boy is Mac aka Thendara Fascination (Sumaric Shadow of Mr Jingles x Thendara Vanilla Ice) who is as dynamic as he is gorgeous!

Instead of a show ...

We were supposed to go to a show on Saturday. Instead, Mac had a nice roll in the mud, playing with a neighbour's GSD, so we went to the reservoir!

Mac can't wait to run down to the water!…

Hi David,

Welcome. I'm sure you'll love being here. Can become very addictive.
I'm Lynn, & I have two setter girls, one Irish & one English. We got them both as baby puppies together & they are now 8yrs. Best friends & the light of my life.

Again welcome.

Thanks David,

Yes, I agree, the ES has a lovely, very soft nature. My Megg is absolutely wonderful with my little twin grand children. She adores them. My Irish girl Tess is fine with them but after the initial 'greeting & lick', then she will then disappear for some peace & quiet. Actually, don't blame her.............
Could not imagine my life without either breed.

Hi David
Welcome to the site, your photo's look amazing, I only nipped online for a moment but I will look forward to having a proper look later today, Rafferty is demanding his walk!
All the best
Debbie

Hi David, es ist urkomisch, dass ich in so kurzer Zeit zwei "alte Berliner" bei ES kennengelernt habe:-)) Willkommen!
Eure Setter scheinen die irische Idylle ebenso zu genießen wie ihre Zweibeiner. Gut, dass du dich damals in Berlin für diese tolle Hunderasse entschieden hast!
Ich bin ein bisschen neugierig und würde gern wissen, warum es dich nach Nordirland verschlagen hat.
Freue mich schon auf weitere Impressionen von den liebenswerten Iren (ob Hund oder Mensch) und der unglaublich schönen Landschaft. Viele Grüße nach Northern Ireland!

Hi David, liest sich sehr interessant, welche Umstände dich veranlasst haben nach Berlin zu gehen! Eine Stadt mit ganz eigenem Charme, die Geschichte auf Schritt und Tritt lebendig werden lässt. Ich bin zwar kein Fan von Großstädten, aber in Berlin lande ich doch hin und wieder u.a. wegen meiner beiden Töchter, die dort studieren. Erstaunlich, dass ihr später zurückkehren wollt, da ihr jetzt so beschaulich wohnt. Ich glaube, dass die Deutschen im Alter lieber vor dem Großstadttrubel fliehen und sich in abgelegenere Gegenden zur Ruhe setzen.
Was hast du/lehrst du eigentlich an der Uni? Welch Zufall - ich bin auch Dozentin :-)) Lg Kerstin

Thank you for yor comment. :-)) Your Photos are overwhelming. I'm impressed. This is where our Irish Setters originally came from. Great! I need to visit Ireland.
Best regards from Germany, Angelika
Nun sehe ich, dass der Kontakt auch in "Deutsch" möglich ist. Alles Liebe natürlich auch für Euren wundervollen Hund! Auch ich spreche immer noch von "unseren Hunden", Layla ist als einzige noch da. Cosima ging vor einem Jahr. Wir haben in den letzten Jahren 4 Setter verloren. Ohne diese wundervollen Geschöpfe leben? Hoffentlich niemals!!! LG, Angelika

Hallo David, danke der lieben Worte! Schön, Dich nun als Freund auf meiner Seite zu finden. Alles Gute, Angelika

Hi David, auch ich bin Deiner Meinung. Es sollten, wenn möglich, zwei Setter sein. Dann haben sie sich und die Menschen, ein Idealfall. Wir überlegen auch noch, wann der Zeitpunkt für einen zweiten Setter gekommen ist. Natürlich spielen auch äußere Umstände eine Rolle. Alles will überlegt sein. Hoffen wir beide auf eine Lösung, damit unsere Hunde wieder ein Kleinrudel sein dürfen. LG, Angelika
