In loving memory of my darling Fergus, who died one year ago today. It's hard to believe that a whole year has gone since he left me so suddenly, it only seems like it happened yesterday. He truly was the wind beneath my wings. I miss him so much. Sleep well little man, you are forever in my thoughts.

He was very unlucky not to win that 3rd CC, but most of all I adored him for just being who he was. He was my ideal Irish in every way and his personality and character were unlike any other setter I've had, he was such a kind soul and had a wonderful sense of humour. We had such a strong bond, I always knew that when I lost him I would be devastated. It's never easy to lose any beloved dog, but when the bond was a strong as it was bewteen us, I felt as if I had lost part of myself as well. I am lucky to have his son, so still have a part of him here, though he is so like him, that sometimes it is very hard. I also have his frozen semen in storage, so maybe one day I will be able to have another little Fergus

He was a very handsome boy. I know how you feel, I feel so sad after hearing his story, thinking of you, and I do believe that they never actually leave us, he will always be with you. All the best Dee and the girls

Certainly, I don't mind anyone knowing how my dogs died. He had Central Canine Vestibular Disease caused by a tumour on the Brain Stem. It was very sudden and we had no warning that this was there, but even if we had there wouldn't have been anything we could have done. If you go to my site and find his page 'Twoacres Fergus' you will be able to read about it.

I'm so sorry for your loss Michelle, difficult time for you, but I hope his son brings you a little sun in your days.

I'm so sorry to hear about Kate, it's never easy losing these red dogs, they have a habit of working their way right into your heart, they have such personality and character and give so much love. May is not a good month for me as I also lost my first setter on May 21st, it was a long time ago in 1992, but I can still remember every bit of that last day quite clearly.
