Clonageera Irish Setters

Profile Information

How many Irish Setters do you have?
How long have you owned Irish Setters?
About Me:
I have lived and showed dogs successfully in England with many Champions and moved to the USA in 2004 showing my English dogs and their children with great success.
I bought my first Irish Setter in 1970 from Joan Anderson (Andana); she became the mother of CH. Jason of Andana of Clonageera. She was returned to Joan as we were to be off to Singapore. Upon our return I bought 2 more setters, one of which becomes CH. Bella Rosa and the other given to us was to be CH. Jason of Andana of Clonageera.

We were so lucky to have these dogs; they become our foundation stock and have produced the Clonageera we know today. Our other bitch that we bought at the same time as Bella Rosa was called Bridie of Andana and her daughter became th Dam of Jim Smith's (Reddins) CH. Sorrell of Andana (having produced a great many champions over the years).

Now, in California with a man that I met twenty-five years ago when he bought a dog from our kennel in England, he had been working in Yeovil, England at Westlands helicopters for a couple of years. We lost touch until I was judging at Crufts, 2003. Both of us were divorced, so we look-up our friendship once again. I moved over here in 2004 with 3 dogs and the showing and the breeding restart.
Pure Geniuse by Clonageera (Jason) is used by Laureen Strelliof from Canada; we bought a puppy from her, who becomes Am. Ch. Kenerin Rockmyworld Clonageera (Caelen). I was talked into showing Jason at the San Joaquin Show in 2005; this is our first show in the USA and Jason went B.O.B., and Caelen takes Best Puppy. Guess What, I was hooked, I wanted an American Champion to add to all of the past dog wins.
I had know idea on how many people that would want use Jason. He finished his title quickly, with Caelen right behind him. We now have another 2 year old Am. Ch. Witchbrooke Cassini who has just finished his title at San Joaquin that had started this all. Also, we have three lovely girls by Jason, who all are pointed.

And, I have also ended up as the President of the Irish Setter Club of the Pacific, Inc. (San Francisco), California.
This is amazing considering that I had come here to retire.

Hi Patricia, Welcome. This is a lovely group and I'm sure you'll enjoy it very much. I'm from Australia and have two Setter girls, Tess (Irish) and Megg (English). They are both 6yrs old and we got them as baby puppies together. They have been inseparable ever since.

Again welcome.

Hi Pat! Barbro and Bosse are still owers of the Kennel Discovery. I`m just the handler and owner of their dogs and Barbro is a very good friend of mine. One year ago I lost my Gizmo (VDHCH Discovery´s Ways To My Heart). He had a lot of Clonageera in his pedigree and he was a lovely dog to own. He had a big success in the showring and he sired some very beautiful children. Please have alook at Kennel Discovery website to read more about your dogs relatives, www.kenneldiscovery.se I attached a photo of Gizmo at the age of ten, winning Bob and Bog 3. Best Wishes Jenny
