Hi Valerie

Lovely to hear from you. All well here.  I have a new puppy who is 6 months old now, so 5 bitches all together. I see Sue sometimes so will say I heard from you.  Maybe I will get to see you if you come down again.

regards

Angela

Hi Valerie, Thank you for your understanding about my Beau. As I said, every time I read Cider's story, I cry. Thank you also for showing me the photo of Bracken and Daisy. Daisy and your daughter are lucky to have found each other. Daisy is a Blue Belton like my Misty. I agree .. your Bracken is certainly a handsome boy. Best wishes, Susan xxxx

Hi Valerie, You are welcome, thanks for accepting. Like you I love to look at all the photographs. Sounds like you have a lot of Setter experience! Gunner is my first and what a wonderful boy. He seemed to grow quickly also, from 4-6 months he shot up, now he seems to be filling out some.
