Moved to Australia 3 years ago, bringing our Irish, Finn, with us but he has since died aged 8. In the U.K. we owned an Irish, an English and a Gordon Setter all at once and life was hilarious but being the U.K. muddy. Since then we owned 2 setters but one at a time. We have now become proud owners of Derry one of Myra Thomas Rhodes lupelinas and once again life is hilarious.
Of course he is trouble, he was bred by MYRA. Stories are legend about his Amhurst Relative, Kerry, Amhurst Borrowed Heaven, she is trouble on four legs. Character plus and there is never a dull moment in the house with Kerry around we all love her to bits and little Derry has than devil look about him. I will be happy to collect him from the airport when you are ready to send :). Take care JO AND THE REDHEADS. XXX
The problem we have here is we live on a converted farm complex and whereas there are fields galore and a forest for him to run around once he has all his jabs, we have a tiny garden that is not fenced off so each time he is out I have him on the lead.
Hi Norma...Lucky you...Derry is beautiful......I also have a Amhurst relation but from a Nome litter....Finnegan....who is now just over 2 years and such a delight......Finn is a angel, not like the little trouble maker (kerry) in the North Island..;-)))))
Hi I have a son and his family living in Perth. at Ellenbrook. We went over last year had a super time, managed to make a quick visit ti myra and saw Lupin. I hope you have lots of fun with your young man. I have ben to Hilarys and the dog beach fantastic. If it wasn't for our setters we would probably move out there.
Thanks Norma. I know there is Pape in UK, in fact the man that constructed the shotgun is a Pape from UK. I know a lot of the history and hope to find out more. My privat mail is IRWS@animail.net NB! there is more about my dogs on my,Linn Cecilie Moen`s profile.
