I have owned and been owned by Irish Setters since 1974.
Purchasing my first boy from Roddy and Louvain Gledhill (Waragana)
Until 2005 I still had a *Waragana" Irish Setter in my home.,When I lost Aimee "Waragana Fields O Fire"at 12 years of age
Making a 31 year friendship with these wonderful people.
I could always rely on this wonderful couple for my next puppy to show.
Roddy and Louvain made the announcement they would no longer be breeding in 1996/7.
What a blow that was for me.!!
I could not imagine not having these special bloodlines just disappearing.
Deciding to breed myself.
I have been breeding since 1999.
Only producing a litter when I wanted to keep a pup for myself to keep Roddy and Louvains breeding in my lines.
To date I have produced 9 Champions and have one girl very close to her Grand Champion title.
My last litter being born 17th December 2007.
I cannot thank Roddy and Louvain enough for all.the help the encouragment and friendship they have given me over the years.
More importantly the wondefull Irish Setters they have given me to love.
and continue my breeding programme.
I used to have 14 acres and the girls loved it but the sheep didn't like then in their field. I have never got one of my Irish to that sought of age, 10 is the oldest, they all went with bloat at that age, hears hoping for my girls to get past it this time, I will dread it when it comes, all the best Dee and the girls
At the moment he is in Alice Springs but plans to get back to Sydney he has a job which he was doing before going there to go back to. he arr first in brisbane then went Broken hill , and perth,melbourne , then to sydney. Hes doing a backpack/and work holiday so combining all. He should be home for aug his visa of 12mths. He wants to do a return thats as much as we know at this stage.Its lovely when you breed a little one and they get there prizes you feel so proud.
morning, or in your case evening.We have rain here so we had a soggy walk. K hasnt moved this morning yet, so she hasnt had a walk ,I took food to her. When the rain has a break ill stretch her legs.How much land do you have, only i assume unlike us who walk our dogs i expect you have a field or two for them to run in.
