Pups, Meg, Jack and Hope

Yesterday we ran Meg and the young pups off of horseback.  Meg is nearly a year old but since life has been so busy, I've only had her out twice before.  She was fabulous!  Independant and going the right places and also handled and turned when I asked her to.  I am sooo pleased with her.  The pups were put out in twos with older pups and they also ran really well.  I was only slightly hurt that they did not really NEED me!  LOL!  They all came when called at the end though, and they really…

Sad time and What a Nice Litter!!

December 27th, 2010 my father passed suddenly after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  It was a very sad time for us as a family, but we did have a wake for him where family and friends had a good time remembering this honourable gentleman.  Denis Lowry Russell instilled in me my love of Irish Setters making me a third generation Irish fancier.  We had a slide show for Dad showing him with his Irish Kelly when Dad was a boy. 

I am currently on the road.  I went to Phoenix with…

Pups and Life changes

Hello Everybody! There are many changes at Russell Irish Setters currently. Ken and I are splitting up, so much of my time has been spent dividing belongings and dealing with legal issues. Prior to the decision to part ways I had planned a litter and they arrived 3 weeks ago just to liven things up!

It is a lovely litter of 13!!! They are by Chukarhill Burn Notice out of Can Ch Russell's Grapevine. Tate is a dog that has impressed me from day one. He is an absolute sweety and…

Finally a photo of Candy

He had terrible flease when I got him back, but he is doing well now and looking for a new home.

It was the first day we'd done bird… Continue

Ages, Again...

It seems that I do once yearly posts! I've been on a couple of discussions, but was on dial up internet for three years, so not active on this list so much because the site takes forever on dial up. Anyway now we have a high speed stick so I can surf more.

Since I was last here Raisin has become Can Am DC Can AFTCH Highfeather Raise 'N A Ruckus Can FDX CD Am MH CD! She is the first Canadian Dual Champion in about 60 years and the first ever Can Am Dual Champion! I am really proud of… Continue

Hi All, Been ages since I was here, need to catch up on the topics and such. Our litter of seven by Carousel's Just for Fun out of Can Ch Palarset's Spring Fling has begun to go to their new homes. We are keeping the pink girl - tentatively her name is Russell's Isobel - not sure yet, call her Belle, or Izzy, or???? Need to live with her awhile longer to see what suits her. My husband Ken is going to co-own her so he got to choose her name. We have one girl left in that litter, she is a…
