HOOLEY IRISH SETTERS

Profile Information

How many Irish Setters do you have?
One now: Glenvarna Fire And Ice At Hooley (Mulligan)
How long have you owned Irish Setters?
33 years
About Me:
My first dog was a much loved Corgi called Bryn.
My previous Irish were:
Kerrigan Amber Dream (Oliver)
Twoacres Joker The Hooley (Flynn)
Twoacres Fergus (Fergus)
Cymbeline Fallon By Hooley (Geordie)
I taught 4 -7 year olds for 17 years and often used to take my first Irish Setter into school. He loved being with the children and they loved being with him. The favourite place to be at story time was next to Oliver!! He was affectionately known as Ollie and many generations of children grew up thinking of Irish Setters as Ollie dogs!!

I got into showing when I retired. Oliver died suddenly only two months after I stopped teaching and as the house was so empty I just knew that I had to have another Irish. I was lucky enough to get a puppy from the late Mrs June Coates (Twoacres). He was Twoacres Joker The Hooley, (Flynn).We went on a steep learning curve together as we found our way around the show world. I very quickly became hooked on this new past time and an obsession began. Over the years I have learnt so much and met so many wonderful friends, all through a shared interest and love of this magnificent breed.

I am on the B Judging list for Irish Setters in the UK and have also judged English Setters, Gordon Setters and Irish Red & White Setters at Open Show level. I was secretary of the East Midlands Social Region of the ISBC in the UK for 14 years and a committee member for 18 years.

As well as showing when possible, I like writing, so often contribute items to the ISBC Newsletter. I also have a particular interest in health matters concerning the breed.
Why are you applying for membership?
B. I am a dog and my owner is at work all day

THE HOOLEYS!!

I have a vague memory of someone starting a blog about member's web sites. Can anyone tell me where I can find it as I've spent hours trawling through this site and can't find it. Did I imagine it?

Thanks,

Michelle

SPAM E-MAILS ARE YOU GETTING THEM AS WELL?

Posted on February 26, 2011 at 2:57pm 8 Comments

I seem to have received many unsolicited e-mails from a new ES member, Vicky Lake, none of which has anything to do with setters, let alone dogs. All are spam and as far as I can see some sort of scam. let me make myself clear...............

I DO NOT WANT YOUR MAIL STOP SENDING IT!!!!

 

Is anyone else being pestered by this person?

Twoacres Joker The Hooley, 'Flynn' was 14 when he died last August. he was a lovely boy with a wonderful temperament, but was very determined, so was difficult to show as I am so small. He did much better when he was shown by a man and actually got 2nd at Crufts in a class of 16, 15 of whom were Show Champions!!

Hi Michelle
I presume that I can join your group as my boy's Gt Gt Grandfather was Twoacres Gold Eagle (What a fantastic name, never really looked at it to register it before!)
Look forward to chatting, Siân
