Ok, I have a confession. I know this will make me feel better.I am a dog racist. Whew. Do you know that saying," If it's not an Irish Setter, it's just a dog". It's true. I do apologize to you other…Continue

Happy 5 to Keba and Rooker

Hello all,I haven't been around but I just have to say that my boys turn 5 today. They are full blown 80lb ( uh, 36kg to most of you) , the devil may care Irish Setters. Makes me a tad older as well and they show no signs of slowing down despite that I keep losing a step or 2. I am saddened to report that our breeder, Jean Greene passed last Holiday season but her 4 dog clan is being cared for by her son and I know she would be brightened to see how fine 2 of her pups turned out.Hard to believe…See More

"A dog pool? Never heard of such a thing. What funn. We have a farm pond so the boys swim with the fishes ( and whatever else). They are very, uh, ripe afterwards. And thank you Cornelia. I just love the pics of the dogs in the ocean."

I am a life long Irish Setter owner dating back to 1978 when I got my first pup.

Hi Rob I hope you get as much out of the book as I have , using the calming signals has brought a new bond with our boys

I hope things work out for you Rob and the book gives you some confidence to read your dogs body language, my boy is quite scared of people moving directly at him so I'm using the signals to help him be calm and to build his trust in me

Hi Rob....no real idea of our Molly's lineage as she is a rescue from a local Humane Society (very rare to find here in St Louis...infact I found her on the Cardinal's baseball game as the Purina Dog of the Week needing a home and was very lucky to have her come rule ours)( Heidi the Irish Setter with Trevor Miller for Heartland Humane Society on You tube). I do have some thoughts where she might have come from as near KC there is a breeder and also around Columbia Mo....pretty sure she is a mix of show and field due to coat .  Know a little about  why she needed a new home and it truly was a rescue that I can thank her vet for arranging.

  Your lads are quite handsome ...and looks like they are enjoying life from your pictures.....looking at your pictures I can see quite a few things that remind me  of our Molly.  May I ask where your boys came from? and do you show them or hunt with them?   We do also have a younger IS who lives about two blocks from us but she has had a lot of major health issues that only recently have been figured out so Molly mostly just gets to see her briefly. IS have owned me since 1973 so I know how easy it is to keep falling under their magic spell.  Lucky you to have land for them to run and play on.....though Molly would actually have to stay in eye range of us as she is constantly making sure we do not leave her out of anything. 

  Love the picture of your Old Gentleman Irish...so distingushed looking .

Rob the one breeder near KC also breeds other dogs...and her husband breeds Red Setter hunting dogs.  Bailey the IS who lives a few blocks from us came from there. 

  Our Molly strictly hunts for her own enjoyment...squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits and when the sun is just right her shadow hunting keep her busy.  She does like an audience for her hunting and will check to be sure we are admiring her prowness.  She is truly a companion dog.  As the first female IS here she has shown us while a lot is the same there are definite female traits which have kept us laughing.  She can be very prissy when she wants to be ...and then off to run in puddles the next minute.  Molly is the first IS I have seen who volunteers for a bath........she will sit in the shower when she wants one. ( nice change from carrying my last IS in there after I caught him). I wonder how puppies from MO ended up by you!

Thanks for your comment, Rob! We also had a snowless winter so far - we had to drive to the Alps to be able to play in the snow:-)) Have a nice 2012! C & J
