Looking for information on Lupus and Irish Setters

My 2 1/2 year Scout has Lupus and I am looking for more information. Has anyone had a dog with Lupus?

About Me:
For over 20 years I have had Aussie finally got my first Irish in 2006, his name was Scout. I lost him two years later to SLE. He was such a special boy..My Aussies, Lady and Tiz really miss him.
We just added another Irish to our family this Month (2/17/09) a boy. We are calling him Hawk. Doing field work with Hawk, Scout he would of loved it. Hawk is everything I had hoped he would be.

Hawk's half sister Cara came to live with us (8/08/11) Hawk is so happy to have someone to play with

My boy Scout passed on September 2, 2008. He became ill July 2, 2008 with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. (SLE) He was a alway a happy boy and I miss him greatly.

Today 7/6/10 lovely Lady joined Scout, now the two of them are together again running and playing.  They loved each other so much.  I did not expect to have the extra two years with Lady.  I quess she knew I needed the time with her.  Tiz bloated on December 23, 2012 we let her go.  She is with Scout and Lady having a wonderful time.  I really miss the three of them. 

Hawk has been diagnosed with epilepsy, he had his frist GM on 6/1/10

5/22/11 Hawk just got his JR Hunter Title

6/6/12 Cara had a seizure today, keeping fingers crossed she does not have another

2/27/13 Hawk is 16 months seizure free and Cara is 8 months yes

Hi Kathie and thanks for being a friend!
CA is a wonderful state, I loved the north especially - but that was over 10 years ago... never saw any setters though!

I think I already wrote this but I'm, tired sowhat the heck - your setter looks SO MUCH like Duke! (He has a brown nose and brown eyes,but otherwise that looks so much like him). I think your baby is smiling in that picture.

I am the father of Susan Stone who is already on your list ! Unhappily, I've only come in the week after my dear old Ginger had to be put down. The picture shows Ginger, 11 years old, last September on a train outing in my home Switzerland. I am an incorrigeable setter friend and have had them over 35 years.

Hi Kathie Jo,
I am delighted to accept your request to be your friend. Although I am clicking on the accept button, I get the feeling this is not working.
Kind regards
Catherine Carter

Hi there Kathie Jo. do you show your setter? I hope you enjoy the site, Dee and the girls

Hi there Kathie Jo, If you are quick you can get to S.K.C. it is on Sunday we will be there probably coming to earth with a bang and getting dumped, still that is how it goes you just smile through gritted teeth and congratulate the people who have won, well someone has to.
Its a shame your boy has a crooked tail, one of my puppies had that, according to a 'dog' book that is one of the most common of the congenital faults with the Irish Setter yours is only the second one that I have ever heard of, there is a lot more that goes wrong with them than just a crooked tail. I hope it doesn't cause him any problems!! Speak soon Dee and the girls

Hi Katie, who did you get your Irish Setter from? He looks like a very happy boy. I used to live not too far from Oakley in Stockton, CA. A long time ago, left there in 1980 and moved back to the San Jose area then moved to N. TX in March 2005.
