"Oh, yes! That is a way up there for sure! Brrrrr. I am in Nova Scotia. It's a LOT warmer here! One of my Irish swims 5 or 6 times a day in the river by our property. The other one prefers to rummage around in the reeds at the edge of the pond.…"

Whimsy

This is a photo of Whimsy relaxing while waiting her turn in the ring at a dog show when she was young. I have learned to groom her neck and ears better since then. Hahaha!Photo credit ©Barbara Glanville

"I saw after I sent my response that your original post was a while ago. It seems that most dogs with car sickness outgrow it. My Golden Retriever is very eager to get in the car but she is so anxious on drives I wonder why she even wants to go!…"

"When you take her in the car take her to fun places and have lots of her favourite treats! Once she starts looking forward to the ride, you can gradually cut down the treats but you should definitely take her to at least as many fun places as the…"

As novice handlers, we have only entered a few shows a year in Nova Scotia with our girls. They have only had competition once so they earn one point at a time against each other. So, in Aug. 2019 we drove from Nova Scotia to Ontario to participate in the Irish Setter National in Long Sault, Ontario. It was the first big show we have ever entered - and I mean BIG!!!! It was the first time we have travelled with the dogs more than 3 hours from home (we took 3 days to go there & 4 days to…See More

About Me:
My husband and I raise and show Irish Setters. I have an extensive background with many kinds of animals including working as a Veterinary Assistant. Our girls have attended Field Training days, Handling Classes, Sprinter Events and Scent Detection with us. Both of them love to swim. Conformation showing was new to us when we started with the IS's but the girls have done well despite us. :) There aren't many Irish Setters in the Maritimes and we don't travel to all the shows so points are slow in coming. Both girls only need 2 points for their Championship and Gwynnie's major has already been achieved. Now we need dog shows again! Covid-19 has interfered with that, but it will come soon!
Why are you applying for membership?
A. I am a human wanting to contribute to the community
