This is the first Irish Setter I have owned and she is a little darling. I was very privileged to have been involved with her from day one so. It has been amazing to see her grow into the lovely character that she is.
I started showing her 5 days after she was six months and she is doing ok. This is the first time I have shown dogs and think it will take me a while before the adrenalin stops and the nerves subside.
I also have a springer x collie who has had to put up with a lot from madam. I have always had dogs in my life mostly labs so this is a brave but worthwhile departure!!
How is Holly getting on? I look forward to seeing some more pictures soon. Has she been posing with Cassie? Look forward to seeing you at SKC. Cuddles from her Auntie Maeve and (almost) Auntie Bridget.
Hi there Welcome to the site, I do remember you from the show, hope to see you in the future too, Do speak because I am not good with faces....not good with a lot of things..;o))
All the best Dee and the gang
ps love the pictures of your wee girl, what did you call her...??
I can't wait to see your wee girl, I wanted to go and see the babies at the puppy party, but my kids were just getting over a stomach problem and I didn't want to pass anything on. So staid away.
Will you be going to Border Union for a look see???? or perhaps you wont like to leave your baby girl for too long...
All the best Dee and the gang
Hi thereAh well if you feel like going and want a lift then just give me a call, I am going. The fact that she will walk for a treat is great, mine arn't into food at the moment, you would think that I was poisening them, well can't count Jas she will eat everything (bless her)
And that you love her to bits is all that counts. Can't wait to see her. All the best Dee and the gang
Hi Yvonne, I'm sure you'll get on beautifully on Holly's first stroll out into the big world, and she has a lovely big sis to keep her right. Your pictures are just super. She's such a pretty girl and I can see she's made herself at home and told you about setters, cushions and sofas. That, and good food and cuddles and its all you need to know. Cassie's a cutie too and it looks like they are bonding nicely. Our two are fine. Sadly they appear to be cultivating dreadlocks so I have a mountain to climb on the grooming before the Dundee show on Saturday. Bridget also has her first Therapet assignment starting on Friday afternoon, so that should be interesting. Cuddles to your girls, Ruth
No, like you I'm not going to Border Union. In fact I have no entries in at the moment although I will do the local ones in August. We should fix up a wee setter party soon. We are a bit stuck at the moment with stock in the favourite fields and our usual walk is a bit rough for Holly, but wouldn't it be nice to take them all to Tentsmuir beach? Our girls love it there and if we do it before the school holidays you get a wonderful empty beach. I've just been on the phone to Hilda for ages and it was in my mind to mention this but forgot. Cuddles to Holly from me and her Aunties.
Hi Yvonne, The schools will be breaking up for hols around the end of next week so what about next Wednesday afternoon? I'll drop Hilda an e mail and see if she's up for it and my friend Pat will come with her standard poodle. I just thought - are you working then?
Let me know on this or email@example.com if that suits or we will rethink. Cuddles to Cassie and Holly from me and her aunties
