Thankyou Sharyn and Carmel. I am not very computer savvy yet ( see, I can't adjust this photo to show Kizzi's beautiful head),so please be gentle (ie understanding).

Yep, its me again. Larabie/Martinridge Kissinthdark. I hand stripped her head, with just my fingers, last week and it came up amazing, but couldn't work out how to do back edge of ears. The Irish certainly don't clip the same way as the Gordon!!! I didn't want to muck it up, so I left it. I checked out the UK website Bernie recommended to me (already had it on Favourites for 6 months) but it wasn't specific enough about the ears. Hence why I went google searching again and found this group.

that is really nice to know she is moving well
i think i see a champion in her
i hope you get the photo uploaded soon i would love to see her
she looks gorgous in the photo there already
i have always wanted to show my setters but i have no idea how?
i would love to just take my setter to some small showing rings, just small ones because i am not a professional and love to and getting to know what they do etc because i am wanting to show setters when i am older
i love setters there fabulous dogs
any chance i could show my dogs in a show ring but just a small one?
any help with this showing?
i have a 24month old female puppy and a 5ear old male dog?
is it too late?
thank you xx

Thank you for the help.
I hope to do showing when i am older it would be lovely
and meet others with setters would be even better
but as you said start off at the basics and work your way up
I hope you get some photos uploaded so i cant wait to see the little one
she looks so cute it that photo there
anyways i am going to research showing perhaps get a few tips etc for when i am older
i love setters i wouldnt be able to live without one beside me
i love huskys too but setters are so sweet and beautiful and so gentle with little children
i hope to get some photos uploaded soon as the weather in Scotland just now is really snowy and cold but the dogs love the snow
rolling around in it and playing with it
i taught my little one and big one a new trick yesterday, high five
Setters catch on very quickly even grown up setters and they love this trick too.
Write back soon
Rhona, Lucy and Bruce xx

Well i dont have plans to visit him we are hoping to see him in august when his visa will run out after 2yrs over there. He had a 6mth one twice and last aug took out a 12mth one. He works for nci interntional if that helps though he has to finish come the end of feb.He did go out to Alice ~Springs well further on from there on a ranch of cattle , he also did a spell at a Stud Farm .And he also had his first experiance on a ranch with cattle and sheep .He then left there and set off from Adelaide to melbourne where he stayed for a while before going on to sydney jan 2008.But the condidtions of the visa is for him to earn and go on these things so although he got this job at nci hes come and gone from it a few times until now.He stopped for a long time at the hostel in central railway ...Since then he has shared houses and appartments at different times then back the hostel accordingly. We have a large collection of pics now from the different bays and bridge and opera house etc.Plus he has done different trips here and there so pics are bulging.

hello Susan, thanks for your comment. here in Europe we show with short ear feathering, though i like it longer and keep it much longer than others (and you should see the girls now, very long and untidy, haven't been to any show yet in 2009). last year we had lots of UK judges and i was kind of forced to trim the hair away from the ears - they are used to that :-) good luck with Kizzi's first show, hope to hear from you soon. what is her breeding, btw?
greetings, laura

So I have been discovering in the last year. A late-comer to computers, as I am allergic to the old CRT screens. Now, with the new LCD screens, I am trying to catch up on everything I have missed over the last 20 + years.

Thankyou for the link to your Mum's kennel - I didnot have it. She has some really beautiful dogs. Sheila has several relatives in common on her father's side and similar English lines on her mother's side, to some of your Mum's dogs. My red & white girl, Nina, is mainly from English lines and the tri baby is her grand-daughter.
