Dear Kristina,
Thank you for that! This little puppy is Twoacres Joker The Hooley. His pet name was Flynn, but he was often called Hooley O'Flynn because he was such a hooligan...all his life!! My affix Hooley comes from him, as does the name of my other site, www.hooley-o-flynn.co.uk
Sadly I lost him almost a year ago on August 31st 2006, he was 14 and very special as although he was not my first setter, he was my first show setter, so we had a very steep learning curve together as we tried to learn about showing...and usually he won the battles as he was very strong willed.
Best wishes,
Michelle & The Hooleys

Luckily for Flynn, I didn't have to have him put to sleep. He dropped dead at my feet in the garden with the rest of his setter family around him. His heart just stopped beating so it was instant and he didn't suffer at all. He had bladder cancer so I knew that he wasn't going to be with me for long, but he never got to the stage where he had more bad days than good. He was well right up to the end and only died because his heart stopped, due to a long standing problem with the rhythm of his heart. I always knew that this could happen but it was still a huge shock when it did and the other two, Fergus & Geordie, who I have now were very distressed by it all. They were all so close. I miss him still as he was such a wonderful character. He got me into many funny situations when I was showing him. I hope to add these to my setter site eventually. The dog site is www.hooley-irish-setters.co.uk

Best wishes,

You have some wonderful dogs and orchids are my favourite flower.

120 orchids is a lot to take care of. I'm impressed. I own a flower shop and know how much work that can be . Don't know how you have time for the dogs.

Owning a flower shop can be very demanding, I'd love to sell it. It's owned me for 29 long years and I'm wanting to retire so I can show my dogs more.

Enjoy your lovely plants, congratutlations on the new litter,

Hi Kristina, lovely dogs and I love orchids too. They're a lot of work, just like our setters. I envy you the farm area for the dogs to grow up on.

Hallå Kristina...vi tar detta på svenska...men om du går in på det numret som din hund har, med den bokstaven som finns i örat (detta måste ju gälla HELA kullen!) vad händer då? Vad får du upp för hund? ID-märkaren använder ju även tången för att märka på stamtavlan. Någonstans har det brustit REJÄLT!
För dessa två siffror+ bokstav MÅSTE stämma överens. Har då hunden fel bokstav på tångavtrycket på stamtavlan också?
Måste den ju rimligtvis ha...
Jag hade vänt mig till registreringsavdelningen.

Hi Kristina, thank you for good words about my Businka, she really very nice little girl!
I like your last litter very much, especially Charly and Vera.
Your other hobby very beautifull! 120 orchids - fantastic!!!

Jag har aldrig hört talas om att det kan bli så fel. Jag hade verkligen tagit kontakt med reg. avdelningen och det gäller givetvis ALLA i kullen. För där försvinner ju det som är det fantastiska med systemet: Att ALLA kan hitta rätt hund. Allt jag kan säga är = Ytterst klantig ID-märkare!
Ha det gott!

Tack för vackra ord om Tea! Jag älskar henne högt.
Denna kullen är Ingas, Tea är alltså en halvfodertik.
Mr Jingles är underbar så jag tror det blir toppenvalpar!!
At 5:08am on August 23, 2007, Lise-Lotte Persson said…
Och så trevlig han är, Jingles!! Han var ju här i 3 dagar, vilken mysig kille! Jag önskade att han hade stannat ;))Lise-Lotte

As to 'Hot Spots", I have a theroy that this is heredity in nature and my reason for this is that our Is Rusty (who has crossed over the Rain Bow
Bridge) suffered the same problems as his sire. It would be good to know what others feel about this.
By the way, the pictures of your dogs are very lovely.
At 9:40am on August 24, 2007, Paul-Leo Paquin said…
Could be, as I said, it's just my theory and so far the only link I have is that Rusty's sire died form the complications from hot spots. I'm hoping to heare from mor folks an this subject.
Nice to heare form you.
