Hugs from Kristina, Sweden!
Dear Ginger, Annette and Kristina
Thank you all for your very kind words. I appreciate this very much. Kind people like yourselves keep me going. I try to focus on the good people in this world, and hopefully one day Beau will find his way to someone who will help him. I have received beautiful emails from dog lovers all around the world who genuinely want Beau to come safely back home. Also, please bear with me while I get used to this site.
Take care of yourselves and your beautiful dogs
Hi, welcome to Downunder Setter Lovers. The English setters are beautiful aren't they? Usually much better behaved than the rambuctious Irish, depending on the individual dog of course. The Setter Zen is on high for finding Beau.
It's nice to meet an Aussie Setter lover. Some of my English Setters are well behaved, some are not, but they are all a heap of fun. I think you have to be a dag to own a Setter. Thank you very much for your Setter Zen for Beau. I'm being interviewed on Radio ABC in Brisbane tomorrow morning about my search for Beau. I've received a lot of media attention this year. Fingers crossed.
hello im so sorry that nothing you tried has helped.I microchip myself and i have friends who tattoo .I always think vets should scan every dog for a chip when new to a practise and have the related chip no on there cards then should a dog be found in someone elses care it could be reunited with the owner unless theres a jolly good reason they cant.I have been breeding and showing for such a long time and the things that go on can amaze us.I just cant understand why more cant be done from the police and all these socities around that care about animal welfare.Anyhow you can only hope beau is well cared for ..As for knowing you should it ever be my pups have visited and come back and known well food is kept toys can be found all sorts as if they have never been away long time after they left.
hello there again. So how are you full filling your days with this having gone on so long.
/How old would Beau be now then?I would love it if one day your dream of him being found would come true .It must be so frustrating all this.Have you visited places to try and track where he could have gone or is the area so vast that without help if he has been snatched which is primarily whats happened but could he find your place .Are you out in the wilds or near a town.Im trying to see it from his eyes if he got away from wherever is it possible to get home ..I know its an assumption if old now it might all be difficult.
I am so sorry to hear about Beau, I hope one day you are re-united. A childhood friend of mine had her dog stolen and they got him back years later when someone sighted him living with a family. I hope you are lucky too.
hi, I thought i would let you know im emailing all my friends to pass it on about Beau theres a small chance they have someone along the line out and about in Aussieland and if by chance it helps then id like to think i tried to do something for you. I have now read all the pages on your site and it is quite enlightening.
Thankyou so much for your very kind comments on my Megg. We lost her just over 2 months ago & I'm still feeling devastated & lost. You are so right. English Setters have a way of making their way into your heart & staying there forever. I have my Irish girl & her & Megg were the same age. Baby puppies together. I miss her so much.
I came across your page today and had a look at your website. Your loss of Beau is very sad and I had tears when I was reading what had happened. I can't imagine what you have been through and I hope that some day soon you can find him and have him safe with you again.
Hi Susan, we are doing extremely well and have been very lucky to miss the flooding this time. How are you where you live ? down the Goast Coast area? I haven't heard anything on the news for your area.
I hope you can make a difference on the dog stealing front. It would at least give some consolation to such a tragic circumstance.
I spent a couple of hours yesterday watching every pictures & videos and reading about Beau, and it hurt me so much to read that your so beautiful and handsome Beau was taken away from you... the worse situation that can happen to a dog owner. My heart is with you Susan and I really admire you for not giving up!! congratulations Susan, and I am so pleased that you are continuing to fight for having him back!
Congratulations Susan, what you have done is already a great achievement and very happy to know that you have the support from this medical practitioner. If I understand you properly you will consign everything on a book!!!! That is an excellent project, you are definitively doing all what could be possible!!! warmest congratulations.
Thanks for your concern. We are doing OK here. Just bouts of wind and squally rain, but nothing else yet. Another 4 hours till it crosses the coast about 600-700kms north of us. We are getting about the same amount of wind and rain that we got off Cyclone Anthony on Sunday when it crossed about 200kms above us.
We feel extremely fortunate at the moment as Mackay has been spared again this year (twice in a week!!!). Just feeling very anxioius about what everyone north of us is going through.
