Digging up golden Irish setter history (2)

Near to all mysteries of Menaifron history are cleared.

The gg daughter of Edgar Rea, first breeder of Menaifrons (starting in the twenties last century) asked information to pass this on to (g)children. Your help was asked – thanks for the few responding but it is luckily not needed anymore.

Medals of Rea’s winning Irish setters in his gg daughters home now have faces with a lot of stories. She is delighted with them. Many gaps in official recorded history… Continue

Harry’s history continues after death

Just a short note for those loving red and red and white Irish setter history. The legendary Dutch Irish red and white setter Harry from red parents died last week eleven years of age.

Harry’s history continues as maybe next week his pups will be born in Ireland. It is a repeat of the combination that gave Irish field trial champion Pallas Green Harriet. Good news after sad news for Harry’s owner Gerard Mirck and breeder Joop Harms plus Harriets trainer/owner Jim… Continue

Happy Birthday sweet Yelly (Lordly Yelly 10 years - 25/11/1999)

Our little Yelly became the doyen at McBirdy! That is now 10 years she shared our life with equal kindness, gentleness and tenderness.

Lordly Yelly is the daughter of Ch Lordly Scrappydoo from our friends J & R Struyf-De Groof. Scrappy matched my type setter and I wanted to get a puppy form her to start a breeding line. We had to be patient, but in late 1999, Yelly came join Lordy Unci her girlfriend and her little Yuelynn of McBirdy at McBirdy's.

Lohmann's Otter-Fokka on Milan's Novotny Memorial

It will not be a very fresh news, as the Memorial took place 6th of September. But better late than never...Briefly speaking, we went with Fokka to Czech Republic and took part in an international autumn field trial. Result: 2nd prize diploma, 125/136 points. Such score would be enough for 1st prize diploma but Fokka didn't obtain maximal score from searching in rushes.

We got following notes (4 is maximal):

-searching, style 4;

-pointing, footing 4;

-wind 4;

-searching… Continue

Rest in peace, Angel 'Runwild Living Legend'

It is with huge sadness that I am reporting the loss of Angel, my aunt and uncles' dog in Canada. He was 13 years old and was very sadly put to sleep on Monday night. He was the first Irish setter that I ever met, and he is the one that not only introduced me to the breed, but got me over my fear of dogs. He was and always will be incredibly special to me. He truly was a living legend.

All my love Angel. Go play at the bridge and… Continue

Fionni Wins Best in Group!

A great final show after a very quiet year with not much showing for Fionn...

After all the frantic washing, grooming, dinner-making, baby feeding and battling to bed, we almost didn't end up making the hour-long drive to the night-time show, but I'm glad we did. Fionni surprised and thrilled us by winning Best in Group and Best Australian-bred Exhibit in Group under judge Mr B Newman-Sparks.

We went back today for General Specials (in 30 degree heat - yay). The show was… Continue

We decided to surgically inseminate Amhurst Ballyguerin, with the same "Ibsen" semen we used with Lupin. Everything was done the same way, but very, very disappointingly, Guerin has not conceived.

How lucky are we with the Lupin babies? I will never have to be reminded! And alway, I will have a huge smile on my face in awe of these miracle babies Pictured is Guerin.…

Freds old age

Our beloved Fred had gone in for grooming today, received call from Dee Farndell saying poor fred had collapsed, so I rushed back meeting husband there and got him straight to the vets. They examined him and pronounced he has arthritis and having severe flare up. Hes now home on strong painkillers and anti-inflamatory drug and ordered to rest, hopefully he will soon be his old self. Fred is 11 years old but has had a good quality of life to date and will hopefully continue to.
