How are things with you and yours? Lily is becoming very naughty, anything she can get her teeth into at the moment is fair game! She keeps taking the towels off the radiator and sleeping on them and as for kitchen rolls, well....... but then she looks at me with puppy dog eyes and everything is forgiven, got me round her paw!!!
Looks like I picked the naughty one then. She's slowly eating her way though a leather sofa!! I bought them two from Ebay, good job they only cost £30!!! I know what you mean about them enjoying life, Lily runs round and round in circles just for fun! Would love to meet up but just had a new knee so can't drive until 21st January!! Which is very frustrating.
Have a great Christmas and New Year.
All the best,
She looks like her mum, but then its hard to tell mum from daughter here sometime!! The kids have to go by the collar colours. We are out on Sunday, taking the dogs to the seaside but I'm in Monday all day, what time would you like to come?
Great to see you and Millie the other day, did you find the walk? I've had to take Daisy to the vets today as she's started coughing got to go back tomorrow for a chest x-ray they think its either her heart or lungs. Where would you like to meet up for dog walk? I usually take mine before breakfast about 9.30 once I've dropped Millie off at school.
I've just been looking through your photo's & they are just gorgeous. Love the one's of your beautiful English girl Rosie with baby Millie. Just too precious.
I too have an English & an Irish Setter. We got them as baby puppies together & they are now both 8yrs. Love them both to bits.
Lily is in season! How about Millie? I think it was her last walk out today, got the unwanted attention of a large Staffie! Jinney are Barley had another massive fight today, don't know what sparked it this time, no food about, all just been out for a walk but went upstairs and could hear the fight so rushed back downstairs to find them trying to tear each others throat out!! So for their own safety I'm afraid I'm going to have to find Jinney a new home, shame really as she's such a nice dog apart from this!
Hi Alison, Jinney has gone to live in Essex with a lovely couple that have just lost their setter, the atmosphere here is a lot more relaxed now, she's a lovely dog on her own. I'm not looking for an English till the end of this year. There were only 289 registered last year according to the ESA so will have to be quick! That would be a real shame if they were no longer available. Will have to breed my own to make sure I'm never without one!
Hope everything is well with you and yours. My husband was working in Scarborough last week and saw a man walking an English and an Irish, first time he's ever seen it apart from me!! I've been looking at English puppies I can't wait now!!! Will have to save up though. Just say a time for a walk, always looking for somewhere new.
I'm so sorry about Rosie, it breaks your heart doesn't it. There isn't a day goes by when I miss Daisy. Although happy memories are a great healer. I'm definately getting another English puppy later in the year. I've had them since I was 19 and I'm not going to be without now. I love my Irish to bits but there's something about an English setter that makes your heart smile no matter what they are up to!!!!
Barley is in season now so will be able to go walking in about a week!!
Sorry about not replying to your last comment, I wasn't notified about it and I don't come on the site as regularly as I used to.
All the best Alison and let me know when you want to meet up.
Hope the holiday in France was great. Got an English TODAY!!!!! An orange bitch puppy, haven't had an orange before. We've called her Olive, although Millie said the name was rubbish and she was going to call her sweetie! Hope to get some photos of her on here soon.
All the best
Barley had 13 again! I was hoping there wouldn't be so many this time. It means having to bottle feed some of them and weaning them sooner. Olive is a typical English, totally deaf when I want her to do something that she doesn't! It's just like a full time job where you work 18 hours a day here, that's why I can never go back to working!!! Only difference is I love my job. What sort of kitten have you got? I'm getting a male maine coon at the end of this month from Cornwall, must be mad!
No not keeping one this time, as tempting as it may be!!! You retire in 6 years! You don't look old enough! Just has to take 3 of the pups to the vets to have dew claws cut off their back feet, poor little mites.
