Mary, My husband and I don't want our setters on the furniture but as my Molly got older she needed a softer bed. We had several dog pads for her but sometimes I would find her downstairs on a big black leather chair that we hardly ever use. It was comfortable for her to curl around in.
I'm so glad Rielly is working out. Blessings, Judi S.
I may get to travel to see the puppies tomorrow, they live in Spokane and so it is about a 10 hour drive. I'm excited, the breeder recommends the adoption at 10 weeks. The puppies are 7 weeks old yesterday! So, I will have to return after Thanksgiving to bring a puppy home. I'm so glad Riley is working out! Almost makes me want more than one! But when I travel I try to take my dog with me and more than one animal makes it complicated!
Have a great week and if I get photos I'll post them!
It looks like I can't go now to see the puppies. I'm asking the breeder to pick the best puppy for me. I saw your new photos of Riley, your Shasha and Mahile. Thank you for sharing those! They look like pals.
Precious photos! I tried to take some photo's tonight on our deck, the light was not good. We had a wonderful sunset and temperatures in the 60's in Idaho. Annie is camping out in my tomato garden that will be planted within 2 weeks. She is in for a SHOCK! I have covers for my plants but I think I will be out in my pj's chasing her, hoping the neighbors can't see me. We shall see who wins me or Annie! I love tomatoes so the challenge is on!
Hi Mary, Riley & Sasha look a lovely pair. I now have an Irish & an English Setter, but we use to have Golden Retrievers when our kids were growing up. Our family dog was Tasha, an absolutely beautiful Golden girl who stayed with us for over 15 years. A beautiful and gentle breed and just wonderful with kids, as are our Setters. Your two look lovely together.
Thanks for sharing all of that Mary. You certainly have two 'beauties' now. Yes, I agree with you about the time flying by. We've actually had 3 Goldens, two we got when we were first married, (pre kids), they both lived for 12 years, then as I said, our lovely Tasha was with the kids all through their growing up years. We've had one other Irish also and she is the reason that I feel I can never be without an Irish Setter. Actually feel that way about the English Setter also. Both breeds are very special to us, as will always be the Golden Retriever.
Wow Mary, You posted some fabulous photos! Riley looks content and happy. I love the Irish photo with the green scarf and Irish button. Annie is sitting by the morning fire as I type, her hair is cut funny because she got into some burrs when she went hunting with my husband. Hopefully the hair on her ears will grow back.
Happy Holidays, Judi
