What 'Naughty and Nice' things have you learnt from Setters ?

Having lost our precious Lynwood Poetry in Motion 3 weeks ago I got to thinking what she had taught me in her nearly 15 years of life. Could members add to this list ? If you can, I would love to add your thoughts to a Setter Poem my daughter is writing for me. So far, my thoughts are these: Bonnie taught me that cuddles are precious, day or night, cuddle your loved ones; that Gym membership is not necessary with a Setter; that you should resist growing up, forever, it is more fun that way ;… Continue

BLOAT can be a killer

If you experience a combination of the following:

Your dog retches from the throat but nothing is produced, other than a small

amount of frothy mucus

Your dog tries to defaecate unsuccessfully

Retained testicle

Hi All

 I have a question to seek advice on, Perry is now 9 months old and only one of his testicles have dropped, I have contacted the breeder for advice and she has said it may still drop and wait until 12 months, for the growth plates to fully form ( the vet has said it will not, and can locate the other one in his stomach region and has said it is a genetic fault and in the bloodline and he needs to be fully desexed) and if not get him desexed, I am so unsure of what to do and…

HOD, heart thief, and the best thing that happened to me...

All in one very beautiful red package.

My baby is almost 6 month now and together we've had to fight our way through illness (both of us) and hardship but it's really made us form a strong bond. He was diagnosed with hypertrophic Osteodystrophy at 4 months and I thought I was going to lose him. He recovered very well and was doing brilliantly but he's relapsed a few days ago. Hopefully he will be okay. I love him so much. He's my little shadow. He goes everywhere with me. I adore… Continue

Happy Birthday Solasdas kids!

Happy Birthday to Merlin, Jay, Bess, Memphis, Maolisa and all their brothers and sisters. Hard to believe it's been 3 years since you came into our lives!

It's been a busy year for Merlin and I, with lots of fun and new friends, but also 3 titles achieved this year. He completed his Endurance Test last June, his Rally-O Novice title last month and his show Champion title yesterday. We're aiming for some obedience and agility/jumping titles for next year! Would love to get some…
