About Me:
Irish Setters have been a passion of mine since childhood memories of my first encounter of one in Maryland. With the film BIG RED the die was cast. I have enjoyed setters since 1981 first in Australia and then back in the USA. I brought two back to the states with me KELLY and KATY SCARLETT.
Today I have one Aussie girl,Kumara ("Sweet Potato" Australian Aboriginal) and a Scarlett Rose - a rescue from Save Our Setters in Tennessee.

Scarlett Emergency Surgery - Spleen

Posted on May 26, 2012 at 8:05am 15 Comments

Thanks for your concern about Scarlett and now that we are out of the woods of the experience let me share in order that you might gain some knowledge from my experience with her. I saw no noticible change in Scarlett's behaviour - she was eating fine, nothing out out of the ordinary. We had gone out one Thursday evening for a walk and when she returned to jump into our van she made a strange sound as if she was hurting.  When I went to offer her some water - something she takes immediately…

Thanks, Cheryl. I lived in Melbourne - more specifically in Strathmore and then in Mt Waverely. I got my first Irish Setter in OZ from a family up in the Dandenong Ranges the first week after I arrived in January 1981. Took a train from Strathmore to Flinders Street onto Belgrave and then a car ride into the ranges. What a beautiful spot. Brought home a little girl, Kelly in a clothes pin basket. Rode the train all the way home unaware that dogs were not to travel. Thankfully she slept most of the way. Got a second setter, Katy Scarlett from a breeder in the Mt Waverley area three years later - had lineage to Taraglen. Brought both back to the States when I returned in 1987.

My oldest setter now is Kumara - she came from Taraglen and will be 12 on August 13.

Scarlett Rose is my younger girl now - she came to us from Save Our Setters in Tennessee.

Rainy days indeed...it is the middle of ''Sunny'' Scotland it rains most of the winter.....when it isn't snowing of cause...but at the moment it is freezing or below. Looks like being a bad winter....but the dogs love it...perminantly wet but running through the Burns is great fun for them...keeps their coat shiny and soft...lol...;o)

Hi Marc, Thankyou for your friend request.  I'm sure you're going to love it here.  A wonderful, very friendly site.   I'm  from Melbourne & enjoyed your story about bringing your baby puppy home from Belgrave on the train.  My Tess is from Eireanmada but our first Irish girl was from Taraglen.  I do remember hearing the name 'Katy Scarlett'. 

Thankyou also for your kind comments on my photo's.  Have just looked at yours.  Love them.  They are beautiful.

Thanks Marc. If only it was a little smaller there would be one planted at home in a flash.
