Thank you so much Rosie, Bailey makes me laugh because he sits while we dressed him in costumes. It makes me wonder who enjoys it more, me or the dog.

Hi Rosi thanks for sending your messages. You are right - Bailey does like to get his picture taken. I have been taking pictures and getting him to pose from the beginning. His breeder thinks he is the most photographed Irish Setter. She could be right.

Hi there again Rosey
As for the chewing you have got that for a while yet, until he gets his adult teeth perhaps... as for his testicles they can cause a problem, you were really lucky with your first boy if his didn't cause any problem, The vet will recommend castration no doubt, but it still may appear...they often do. Sooner or later..
Tinned Chum can be very rich you mentioned before a milky meal, I was told of for giving anything other than the Junior food, apparently it causes a 'balanced' diet to become unbalanced. But it is up to you.
Hope all goes well do try and call again, did you leave a message on my machine, because I didn't get it. Oh dear...Dee and the gang

Hi Rose
Congrats on your new puppy. I always made sure my boy had healthy things to chew. Bones, bully sticks, cow or bison hoofs. We kept an abundant supply around the house and to this day he has never chewed anything that he is not suppose to. He does eat sticks and branches outside. I have tried to teach him not to eat sticks with a firm "Leave it!" command but we have not mastered that yet. From the time he was about 6 months old we could leave him in the house unsupervised. He would terrorize the toilet paper but I think that was because there was paper in his welping box.

We had a hard time with establishing dominence because Bailey was so strong willed. We did not want to break his spirit but we kept on it and now he is such a gentle boy.
We initially kennel trained him and then we picked him up and took him outside to do his business. With this we only had 3 accidents in the house and all 3 was our fault for not paying attention.

Our breeder (the best in the world) recommended we feed him low protein adult food. It is important that the bones grows slowly. This will prevent joint problems in the future. I have learned so much from our breeder. Thank heavens she just didn't hand him over and forget about us.

As you know lots of play time is important. The only way to maintain sanity is to keep him in a constant state of fatigue. Walks is also fun. My Bailey was so difficult to walk on a lead. To this day we struggle with that. He is better on the way home after he had finished his business. Getting there is a serious ugency on the ultimate place to pee and poop. After that he can get on with listening with less interuption. Maybe that is normal.

I am so pleased you named him Bailey. Bailey is an Irish Name but it is also a yummy drink. All for now. Enjoy your puppy. Keep us posted and send pictures.
