About twenty minutes drive south of Hobart there is a beach which is known as the Dog Beach. There are other beaches where dogs are allowed at restricted times but the Dogbeach is open at all times and at all seasons for off lead dog exercising. It does change size as the River flows into the sea between the dog beach and the people beach and it moves with the tide, becomes deeper or shallower, fast flowing or sluggish. The river is the boundary…Continue

For Conaign to come from Canberra to Hobart was an enormous undertaking, but a friend of his breeder's was coming to Tassie on business and agreed to escort him. This way the dog travels for free.
The younger three foster children were away on holiday, so only the older ones came to the airport to meet the new addition. None of us had ever seen an Irish setter puppy, only the adults and I think we all expected a…Continue

Sorry you have lost your boy Conaign - hopefully you will have a new squirrel-sqardon-leader again soon!
This site is great, uniting people from countries so far apart as Lapland and Tasmania. Pleased to meet you here!
we also had labradors before the Irish and still have both. I have a litter of labs at the moment which my Irish dog is fascinated by. I know a few people that have labs and irish, they seem to make a good mix.
Looking forward to the next part of the story.
I'm sorry you lost your Conaign. I still cry, and will always cry for my English Setters, Bandit and Jessie, in Heaven. I have a soft spot for Irish too. There is a lovely Irish Setter whose name is Diaz. The first time I saw him at the dog park, he looked across at me and he just 'knew'. Within an instant, he raced over to me, planted his muddy paws on my shoulders, knocked me to the ground, and stood over me licking my face constantly. I laughed with delight. Diaz really made my day, but this is what Setters do.
I remember you (and Conaign) from another list, several years ago. I'm so sorry to hear about his loss. My old guy, JohnJoe is also gone now. It is certainly the worst part of owning (and loving) these dogs...... they never live long enough.
Thanks for the welcome. Although long gone, I treasure that white face. Pics of my new girl coming as soon as I figure out how.
Best wishes for eastern
