Hi Henriette


Welcom to ES


Yes, Karla is indeed your Jamie's sister - how lovely to hear from you!!

I hope that you will be posting photos; I'm dying to see what your little girl looks like.


Don't know if you know, but Karla and Jamie's brother, Bowie, got Best in Show last Saturday at the Gundog Open Show in the Western Cape - super proud of him :-)


Best regards

Hi Henriette,

Seems you and Estelle Meiring beat me to joining this website - still trying to find the right buttons to press to insert photos - put that down to "old age"!  Loved the photos of Jamie in her Christmas gear, how did the Birthday party go on the 9th?

Thanks Henritte for information concerning Gordon Setters during the week which was very helpful.  Enjoyed the pictures of Jamie and, yes, ours go "chasing rabbits" in their dreams with little tail  wags, twitching noses and my old boy sometimes does a shame gallop (front paws moving!  Oh their dreamland is a wonderful bewitching place, often wish I could join them! I believe Estelle wishes to contact you about having Karla HD    X-rayed at Ondersterpoort when are you having Jamie X-rayed now she is over a year?Remember you must miss the period when she is on heat. Bliss was on heat at the end of October so will get her X-rayed in the next six months.

Enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon.

I am not sure that you got the message (sent to friends on this site) about a missing Irish pup bred by Linda-May Strydom in Sasolburg and owned by Brian and Marilyn Saunders inGarsfontein, Pretoria.  They have owned irish Setter owners for years, but on 23.12.11 the pup, now about 6 months went "missing".  They have tried nearby vets and animal Welfare Organisations without success.  The pup is microchipped, the Saunders can be contacted at 012 9933492 or cell 072 3092143.  Please ask around in your area, somebody has to know something about this.

Glad tidings!

Just a quick note to let you know that the proposals concerning CLAD,PRA rcd 1 and LOPRA rcd4 have been approved by Cape Gundog Club and are entered on the Agenda for the WP Provincial Meeting this month. 

Look forward to recieving copies of SAVA clinical eye testing certificates for Fiddich and Jamie.

Today the article I wrote directed to prospective South African buyers has been posted - log onto www thefriendsofthedog.co.za. to view.

All round a good start to the week!

Morning Henriette,

So pleased to hear, late yesterday afternoon, that you and the family enjoyed yourselves at the show on Sunday which is certainly reflected in the  photos Estelle has posted on this website and you will give showing a whirl again!

Notice wwwthefriendsofthedog.co.za made Irish 'Breed of the month"

Have a good week!

Hello Henriette

Just got your e-mail concerning Jamie's HD X-raying - grand comment by your Vet!  Fingers crossed for A1:A1?  As her eyes have been clinically examined under SAVA Scheme, her Hip score is excellent/good and as she is CLAD & PRA rcd1 hereditarily clear I will lift the KUSA/Breeders Restrictions and you will be all set to breed her after she turns 2 yrs.  If you can earn her Breed Championship 5 Challenge Certificates this year you can apply for her KUSA Advanced Registration Certificate.

Glad to hear Fiddich is back to his jovial self - have a good day!

PS.  View the latest discussion regarding PRA rcd4 on this website i.e. Wilko Janson

regarding testing, non-notification of results, etc.

Morning Henriette,

Any news of Jamies' Hip Score?  Would like you to view video appearing on the Kennel Club (UK) website - under Health - Breeding which involves developments at Animal Health Trust and interaction between them and KC which is very informative.  Do not know who you contacted at AHT, but perhaps one of the Veterinarians/Genetists at AHT appearing on this video maybe able to progress the possibility of Inqaba being able to offer LOPRA rcd 4 DNA Test in SA.  Await your opinion when you have viewed.

Happy Birthday Henriette!!!  have a great celebration with Jamie, Fiddich, Zoe and Chelsea  :-)
