I got to go hunting with my Master and didn't find any birds. Actually I didn't know what to do, as I haven't been trained.
I did get into a briar patch and the stickery bush was terribly painful. My Master had to cut the hair on one of my ears so I've lost my beautiful long hair....at least on one ear. The hair under my arm pits had to be cut too. The stickers (burrs) were embedded into my hair, close to the skin. I couldn't sit, I couldn't walk, I couldn't lay down without yelping.… Continue

Whew have I been busy! Yesterday my creature took me to be groomed. I don't like it one bit. I tried everything I could to get away. Some tree sap landed on top of my head so I'm missing hair there. My creature put peanut butter on the sap to emulsify it but it just "wore" my hair thin. I've been going to the lake almost every week. I love the walks in the forest, my creature tries to walk 2 miles every day. I stay with ahead of her and dart back and forth, sometimes I get so hot I jump in the… Continue

Exciting happenings in the forest. I get to chase my friend, Porche, a Drauthar. Porche is a hunting dog and she is more disciplined than I am! You can watch the video where I'm chasing her. Also, she is a great swimmer. I WANT to swim but I think I like just wading in the lake just fine! I wake up early to play with my friend every day that I am camping! My creature has to tie me to the bed so I don't wake every one else up.
I've discovered mosquitos, they don't bother me except… Continue

Gosh it is hot in Idaho now. We've had cold weather all Spring and now the weather is wonderful. I get to see hummingbirds on my deck in the morning and night.
My creature took me to a dog show where there were lots of other dogs. I never saw so many different kinds. One mean dog lunged at me and his creature said it was MY FAULT. He told my creature that I LUNGED at his dog! The nerve! I only wanted to play.
I watched agility and that was wonderful. My… Continue

Yippee! There is hope!
I have found wonderful things to do LIKE DIG, and DIGGGG.....and DIGG some MORE!
I don't really think my master thinks that digging is so cool, especially because I bring in dirt and mud into my palace. Also, my nose gives me away! I have this unmistake-ably BLACK nose and unbeknownst to me it turns BROWN and a dusty brown at that after I've been having fun in the back yard!
I see birds almost every day: Big birds, but mostly small ones. I want to run… Continue

Roooo Roooo, Hello fellow redheads and friends! I've missed writing but I've been reading about all the setters on this site! It is amazing I can read about Irish in Poland, China, Russia..... I love that video of the Russian Irish learning commands from a whistle!
My creatures just got home from Mexico. They left me, to get into some warm weather! One of my creatures caught fish (Dorado) and my female creature just read 4 books. They both returned tanned and refreshed! They keep… Continue

I had a great holiday and New Year's celebration. I received lots of toys and Kongs. My good friend Porche, a German short-hair, gave me a ball Kong that a liver paste is squirted into it. My sister (a creature named Michelle) has taught me to "high five", "shake hands", "down". Michelle is always fun to be with! She leaves for school today, now I have to sleep on my own bed!
My creatures took me to Sun Valley for New Years, they cross-country skied. They said… Continue

Hello, my fellow redheads and friends!
I found a critter name Minnie underneath the tree yesterday! I've heard about her but I'm suspicious that she is an imposter too!
I'm getting ready for the holidays. I'm not enjoying the cold snow, so it's is delaying me with house training! My sister Michelle came home from college, Yippee! She lets me sleep in her bed! Don't tell anyone.
I'm growing fast, I weigh 21 pounds. I don't like… Continue

Hello out there,
I've been on a schedule, to meet 100 people in 100 days for my socialization. I have to be careful because I'm not fully immunized, so my creature takes me to safe places where there aren't too many other animals. I met another cousin, Daisy, a cocker spaniel. She is my size and the first day she wouldn't even look my way. After the third visit I think we are friends. Daisy let me chew all her toys and she even let me eat her food.
My creature puts me into the… Continue

I traveled in the car today to visit a special trainer lady. She told me I'm gorgeous! She had lots of funny equipment in her yard, a teeter toter, a tunnel, a jumping bar and wiggle waggle fence. Hmmm. I wonder what you do with all that equipment? The trainer had a silly dog that circled around me and tried to play. He was so fast I could hardly follow him. He circled around me so many times I'm dizzy!
My creatures put a lead on me, I guess I didn't come when they told me to. The… Continue

My paws were so tired from blogging two days ago I had to take a rest.
I'm a city girl now. My new town is in Idaho so if your in a city here most dogs have at least a yard to play in. It is quite cold and snowing today. My creature left me alone yesterday and I tried to jump up on a chair. I fell on the tile floor. Now I'm limping so I'm going to rest on my new bed until my arm heals.

I'd like to introduce myself. Annie is my name. I guess I'm named after a couple of Broadway shows and my creature's favorite childhood heroine was named Annie Oakley!
I was born in a beautiful Apple Orchard. It is very quiet there at night. My family was locked in a heated kennel at night because coyotes jump fences and are quite hurtful to other animals. I could see quail every day and even deer!
I just returned to a new home late last night. I was put in a… Continue

It is snowing and a storm is here. We are puppy proofing our home. My husband rolled up all the water hoses outside. I forgot about those! We had a puppy sharpen her teeth on the hoses years ago. Amazing what we remember and probably don't remember now.
We've got a new puppy bed with a "non-chewable" cover.

I'm very excited, still haven't chose a name yet but we have a list. We think we need to see the puppy first.
Does anyone know if a puppy will get along with a cat if exposed early? I don't have a kitty yet but I would like to get one. My Molly would actually come to me if my cat, Smokey, wanted into the house. The cat would tell me when Molly wanted in too!
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone in the U.S.!

I want to thank everyone for giving me suggestions on searching the Irish or Celtic name's to help me find the name for my new puppy! I'm thinking Tara sounds great, I like Sophie too! I'm supposed to pick up the puppy after Thanksgiving. Judi
