Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Defying the odds, our lovely bundle of fur called Joy is still with us! She is in need of much care now and since a few weeks, she's getting a bit slow and weaker on her hind legs. We were however given a lovely summer with many short walks in the Alps and whenever she got tired, she could ride in a dog trailer. She is always thirsty due to the medication and loves a good splash in a fresh mountain brook.
We also enjoyed the spring meadows in the mountains - years ago, we were up on that mountain in the background, but that was before, we had Joy - the area here however is always gorgeous:
This June, she still managed to climb uphill and like a real setter, jumped into every muddy trickle, she could find:
I'm ever so glad, we fought for her life back in January this year and that she was given another chance! To care for her is quite an effort, however she is more than worth it with all the Joy she brought to our lives and look, what we would have missed all through the year without her in it! Of course, I hope the first photo is not the last, but we also know that every day is a gift now.
Bless you all! Cornelia and Joy xxx
