My "heart dog" was an Irish Setter 34 years ago and I now wish it hadn't taken me so long to have another. Shiraz shares her home with me, Lucy the Gordon Setter, 3 Papillons, a Persian cat, a Quarter-horse and a quarter-of-a-horse.We have a couple of acres to romp on and the beach is only a 1km away, for a change of 'romping' scenery.
hello and welcome, read how you found this site, i am sure you'll find many interesting things as well, last but not least all the photos from all around the world!
what do you mean by "quarter-of-a-horse"? :-))
all the best,
laura & the girls
Yep, its me again. Larabie/Martinridge Kissinthdark. I hand stripped her head, with just my fingers, last week and it came up amazing, but couldn't work out how to do back edge of ears. The Irish certainly don't clip the same way as the Gordon!!! I didn't want to muck it up, so I left it. I checked out the UK website Bernie recommended to me (already had it on Favourites for 6 months) but it wasn't specific enough about the ears. Hence why I went google searching again and found this group.
Welcome to the site Susan, Hope that you enjoy it and that one day we might see more pictures of you baby would like to see her head though Ha Ha read one of your other comments, I can't do much on this computer either...:-)))

rhona, bruce and lucy x
that is really nice to know she is moving well
i think i see a champion in her
i hope you get the photo uploaded soon i would love to see her
she looks gorgous in the photo there already
i have always wanted to show my setters but i have no idea how?
i would love to just take my setter to some small showing rings, just small ones because i am not a professional and love to and getting to know what they do etc because i am wanting to show setters when i am older
i love setters there fabulous dogs
any chance i could show my dogs in a show ring but just a small one?
any help with this showing?
i have a 24month old female puppy and a 5ear old male dog?
is it too late?
thank you xx
Thank you for the help.
I hope to do showing when i am older it would be lovely
and meet others with setters would be even better
but as you said start off at the basics and work your way up
I hope you get some photos uploaded so i cant wait to see the little one
she looks so cute it that photo there
anyways i am going to research showing perhaps get a few tips etc for when i am older
i love setters i wouldnt be able to live without one beside me
i love huskys too but setters are so sweet and beautiful and so gentle with little children
i hope to get some photos uploaded soon as the weather in Scotland just now is really snowy and cold but the dogs love the snow
rolling around in it and playing with it
i taught my little one and big one a new trick yesterday, high five
Setters catch on very quickly even grown up setters and they love this trick too.
Write back soon
Rhona, Lucy and Bruce xx
