So good to hear from you, selling houses is always very distressing & no doubt Molly has picked up on it. So sorry to hear she has had to go to a kennel. I wish I could help out. I have a new boy, quite unexpected I…"
"hi di... just going through the site wondered how you were. I have been busy still trying to sell here. Bit of a nightmare but I think we are getting close. Molly has been in kennels because of being in season and we were away for a few days. She…"
"I am SO sorry to hear about your loss. I too lost my beloved Jasmine to a liver shunt at the tender age of 3 1/2... she was diagnosed in July (although now know the condition was present long before being diagnosed) and passed on November…"
I love irish setters, they have the most beautiful natures. My youngest is the first irish setter ever to have a shunt in her liver. She was diagnosed with an interherpaptic shunt at 18 months of age. She is now 8 and doing well with special diet and management. I live in the Southern Highlands and I love my work, my home and my girls. Without my setters throughout my life I doubt that I would have gotten over all the difficulties I have encountered, their loyalty, their love and their happy disposition always puts a smile on my face and in my heart. My oldest girl is from Ch Brechins Bliss & Ch Eireannmada Mustafa and my youngest from Australian Champion Karnachan Irish Jet Set & Australian Champion Linleymvorne Lady In Red.
Hello there Di!
Thank for making me your friend! Well I am allways impressed by anyone being relaxed in front of a camera...I just hate it! Somehow I always seem to be talking, eating or generally pulling a stupid face when I am being photographed...even worse when I try NOT to do any of the above!
Very interesting to visit your website, such a totally differant world to mine (but then on the other hand not, but writing for the kennelclub my models are normally four-legged).
But then that is the great thing about these world-wide sites, the fact that you get to "meet" all these differant people you would never normally be in contact with. And I have actually met up with some of them in real life too so that was great.
Boring weather here to day...raining and grey and I had left all the cushions out on the sun-bed. Serves me right I suppose :-)
Thanks for your kind comments - the pups are already 4 months now and a very funny shape... just like the one on your lap:-))
Greetings to the Southern Highlands from the Bernese Midlands,
Your new profile photo is lovely. So nice to be relaxing and cuddling with an Irish. Your two girls look so sweet together in their photo's. I have two Setters, one Irish & one English and they are the light of my life. Got them together as baby puppies 6 years ago, and they've been inseperable ever since.
Just love both breeds.
Lynn from Melbourne, Aust.
Nice to hear from you. I totally agree that there is nothing better than to spend time with the dogs.....
Check out a pic I added of a rare 5 generation picture....When I realized that I had the 5 generations living, I just knew I needed to take a picture of the group. Some of this latest group were also part of the original 4 generation picture I took.
Thank you so much for your comments about my dogs.Behind the nice face must be the nice soul.I feel your great love for irish setters,and I am happy to meet such people!
Our irish eyes tell everything as well!
