one very spoiled brat of a IS who is a sweetheart and the most loveable creature in the world.
How long have you owned Irish Setters?
Since 1989 ( I was 11). My first dog, Lun od Jadra (Isa Domus Alia x Cari), came from Slovenia in '89. That was one helluva dog :)
I am originally from Bosnia, but live in the States now (Chicago). I work in event production and take my dog everywhere with me. I love to travel and so does Lego.He comes from Hungary, from Garden Star's Kennel. His registered name is Garden Star's Hocus Pocus ( Ch. Berboss Highlight x Ch. Gin Tonic Of The Hunter's Home). I fell in love with his mom and absolutely had to at any price have her puppy :-) Fortunately, Lazlo was so nice to let me have a sweet little boy.
I absolutely love the line and they produced the loveliest boy with the most gentle temperament, soft mouth, eager to please and such a joy to live with. I honestly could not have asked for a better dog. :)))
I would say that he is a creature of comfort though, and loves the central air and queen size bed, as well as his leather armchair. He is a total bed hog :)
I also love to participate in conformation and more recently field events. Even thought I might be the least competitive person you will ever meet ;o) I love taking part in the training, because it takes me much longer than the dog to get trained ;o) Just enjoying some quality time with my dog and the fellow dog people is a reward to me.
We are doing some field training as a requirement for his Bosnian Ch. and both of us absolutely love it!!! He got a JH so far. I have never seen him so excited about anything (except a ball thrown into lake).
While the field training is on hold because of the huge gas prices, we are doing the Rally with our training club, which is a lot of fun. It is an exercise for myself and the dog I must say ;O)
We like to do lounge on the furniture together watching a movie as much as doing all the different stuff. Dogs have to rest and have ice cream from time to time, right? ;-)
Well in May I was in Sarajevo with my young male. I was pushing the lady the FT papers and she did not want to have them. Said they don't need this. So I would check this out with their Kennel CLub. Perhaps it is changed in 2007??? Anyway we go to Gradiska in September so I can tell you first hand. Love, Alenka
