I am just about at my wits end.  Every single little noise in the house ... a cat hopping off a counter, a child opening his door to go to the bathroom, the same child returning to his bedroom, a…Continue

Why is this not ILLEGAL????

Okay, I am outraged now.  I am seriously angry.  I have been looking for a more healthy food for my lovely Cosmo (different thread) and have thus been spending too much time reading dog food…Continue

FOOD: Low Protein, Grain Free, AND Affordable???

Started this discussion. Last reply by Margaret Sierakowski Sep 3, 2010. 28 Replies

Okay, I know that inexpensive dog food that is also high quality is not available, but just thought I'd throw that last one in there.  Cosmo is now 7 months old and has had a series of ear…Continue

One currently.
How long have you owned Irish Setters?
26 years
About Me:
I love irish setters! I have beened fortunate to have three of these crazy redheads over a period of 26 years ... always one at a time. Our new baby Cosmo is just three months old now and he is a doodle! He is also my first "well-bred" irish ... my other two were rescues, which only adds to their lunacy (and I say that with affection!)

Cosmo Meets the Mailman

Posted on April 30, 2010 at 8:36am 4 Comments

It is an important milestone in any young dog's life. Being a human, I can only guess at the reasons why this one individual holds such fascination ... the regularity of his arrival, the distinctive rattle and hum of his electric vehicle, the possibility (and audacity!) that he might walk right up to the house and ring the bell ... possibly all of the above. For all of my adult life, I have been forced to either quickly quarantine the dog(s) or face the embarassment that comes from accepting a… Continue

Secret Agent Blows His Cover

Posted on April 29, 2010 at 8:26am 2 Comments

Cosmo has been trying to pull a fast one ... he sits quietly and calmly, pretending he's a cocker spaniel or perhaps a long-haired dachshund. You know ... one of those dogs who are no trouble at all (relatively speaking.) Then he gives me this very "setterish" sideways glance with just a hint of the white's of his eyes showing before resuming his favorite project of removing all the reindeer moss from the base of my fake plants and squirreling it all over the house for his future amusement.… Continue

We are so pleased to have Cosmo join our family. He is our third irish setter and our first boy. Bob Franjesh was a wonderful breeder to deal with and his puppies are beautiful.

Hi Gigi
love the photo's of your very laid back young man. He looks lovely, how old is he. I also have an Irish called Mia she is quite laid back too. She gets thoroughly spoilt.

Thanks for you comment, Gigi! We found ways to travel for a quite reasonable prize - but you stil need the time to be able to do it - which sometimes is more difficult to find... All the best, Cornelia

Thanks Gigi for your advice in my blog. That was for me a big problem, and I don't like to enter new year with nonsolved matters.

I love your story about drinking morning cofee with Cos;-)
