Welcome to the ES site Jeremy. Good to be informed before taking a setter... very briefly you have to be prepared to be owned, be really fit as they need a lot of exercises, have a good sense of humour and you will know the really meaning of love!!!!!

Welcome Jeremy,  You will love it here & I can't wait to see your pics. when you do bring your new Setter home.  They are just the best.  I've had both Englis & Irish & could never have another breed now. 

Again welcome.

Welcome to the site!

I'm sure you'll find a nice puppy and will be complaining about how he/she is missbehaving in ways you never imagined soon =)

You'll also be laughing and enjoying every second of it!

Best of luck

Hi Jeremy,

Glad to be your friend. We had a setter as a child and other breeds through my childhood but none were like the setter. Since then I have had 2 of my own (at different times) sadly they are now both dead and I am looking for another. They are wonderful companions - a mind of their own - very intelligent, when they want to be!! Show offs with noblw dignity. I showed at Crufts when I was 13 and may be hope to do so again some 40 + years later. May be we'll meet sometime.. I can be contacted on majormouse@hotmail.co.uk

All the very best in your success at getting a pup.

Hi Jeremy - long time no hear - my fault. I have not been on the site for a long time. Have you got your pup yet? I have mine now and he is 3 years old - how time flies. I waited a long time for him as I wanted an IS from a reputable breeder and no health problems. Hopefully I achieved this. He chose me (as did my last 2 boys) and from his barks/woofs as a pup he named himself Jake. Not a name I would have thought of but hey it suits him. Did you go to Crufts this year? We did and last year too and hopefully next year. All the best. Sally
