Where do the two setters from Ireland come from??

yes I understand Mel and I believe that it is recessive, you can breed a carrier to a clear and get some clears so it can be eradicated from your lines over time. Just because one is a carrier doesn't mean it will be effected . There is some finger pointing here in aus, some with all american lines claiming it's not their lines but if they have not tested you can't claim that can you!

Believe me Mel, I had been 'sweating' on my results coming back!!!

  My heart goes out to everyone who hasn't been as lucky as myself.

We as breeders always strive to do the very best for our wonderful breed.

Some things are unfortunately beyond our control.

I AM thanking my lucky stars!!!

Congratulations Marie, Peter and Elton. I am sure you will be delighted to hear that Elton's relatives NZ CH Solasdas Copper Ruse and Solasdas Bewitched By Charm have also returned clear PRA 4 results. Party time all around. Love and hugs across the Tasman. XX
