Update on Pitanga's heart

Posted on April 9, 2014 at 9:21am 7 Comments

Hi everyone,

Pi went to her cardiologist today for a rechek.

Her heart has no changes since her last exam which was a year and a half ago. Considering she had her nasty tick fever last summer, this is almost a miracle!

Her doctor feels like he doesn't need to do any more routine check ups, and that she only needs to come in if there are any changes, and he expects that to happen... never!!!!! :-D

He feels like her condition is not likely to worsen and she can live…


Today I really, really hate being across the World

Hi everyone,

Talked to my dad, who told me that Romã is getting fatter everyday, despite the diet she already is on. He also thinks her belly is changed and now looks like a "beer belly". He believes this has got to a point where we can't consider it normal anymore. 

Tomorrow my dad is going to drop off Romã at a friends house, who is a vet and works at our University Vet Hospital. She'll be completely checked to see if/what is wrong with…


It's been a long time...

It's been a really long time since I posted anything here on ES, but after this long break I've decided that today is the day I'm returning to action here in ES!

I'd like to tell you a bit on how we are doing after so long:

Pitanga is 6 years old now, and nearly died this summer due to a nasty tick fever. Her heart got a bit worse from that, and as a consequence she also has arthritis. She is stable, fat and happy and when I return to Portugal I'll start…


What we've been up to!

Hello our ES friends! You may have noticed we have been much less active here in ES lately... well we have a very good reason:

We have been very busy adding some new skills to our list: I'm taking my first steps into proper dog training: Clicker training to be more specific - very time consuming!

And of course, Pitanga and Romã have been as busy as mee, helping me with my new skill!!!

I tought I'd let you guys with a few links of some videos I made with our more recent…

Hi there Teresa
Oh dear, so sorry to hear that Pitanga isn't too good, I do hope that it gets better with just the antibiotics works for her, we have such a gamble when we breed our girls. I really hope that she is going to get over this soon.

Hi there Teresa
I am glad that Pitanga is fine now, strange cause of an infection, but I am glad that the vet got to the bottom of it, and that she is now fine are the babies doing well??
Is the puppy on your cousins site the one that she is having??? Well at least you are keeping the puppies in the family...I don't have anyone in my family that wants a Setter, my daughter has a Visla although related to Irish he doesn't have any hair, he has got allergies, and his hair keeps falling out, poor wee sole..Speak soon Dee and the gang

Oh I know about that kind of thing....I hope that the people that I sell my babies to become friends, I am still friends with people that I sold puppies to in the early 1970's that is a long time, and many dogs...
Glad all is going well for you and her, we did have a little bit of a problem with stomachs and I have just wormed them for the second time, luckily still no sign of any worms, but I didn't really expect there were any, all too well and lovely coats...
Do keep in contact, Dee and the gang

Hi there Teresa
They are all wormed again everything was fine this time no problem at all, in fact they have put on so much weight I am having trouble in keeping them in the bowl that I use, they now weigh over 6lb well most of then anyway, pictures will be taken today, so hope to get them posted in the next few days, the person that is taking them has a really special camera and I hope that he can take them quickly because puppies going on the table for the first time aren't that easy to control. well not by me anyway...ah well all good fun..speak soon Dee and the gang

Boa Noite Teresa.
envio-lhe esta mensagem para agradecer o convite para "setter em Portugues".
No entanto ,declino pois para mim Setter é Universal e independente do País.O meu interesse e envolvimento em comum com outros proprietarios da raças de Setter será sempre pelo desenvolvimento da mesma e sua criação com regras,responsabilidade,despistagens de doenças geneticas,metodologia,pedigree ,etc
Infelizmente em Portugal reproduzem-se os caes por impulso afectivo e/ou comercial e esse não é a minha posição perante a raça ou por um país onde se auto intitulam criadores, os detentores de caes que os reproduzem sem avaliar os problemas tipicos da raça ou o patrimonio genetico.
O que separa os caes de raça pura dos rafeiros ,é uns estarem definidos e os outros não.
cruzar caes da mesma raça sem regras é tranforma-los em rafeiros (que adoro e tenho grande respeito pelos mesmos,mas que são tão indefinidos como os das ninhadas de raça pura onde não são avaliado os progenitores(por pedigree,fenotipo e genotipo.)
Esse não é o meu mundo Setter nem eu sou nacionalista num tema universal para mim.

Muito Obrigado pela atenção
Pedro Completo

I hope speechless in a good way...I have had some standing pictures done and the ones that I have seen are fabulous...will be posting them when I get them all back it will probably bore everyone to bits.
How are your babies growing??? Mine seem to be growing like weeds, they will hopefully go outside for the first time today or tomorrow, as we are supposed to be having a warm spell...
The one problem that I have is the cleaning up after them, my granddaughter is being potty trained as well so thought about putting her in there with them and I just have to clear up one lot of pee instead of it being all over the house....Just joking... But this lot could pee and poo for Scotland..
All the best Dee and the gang
ps Thank you so much for the compliment, it is greatly received, and appreciated...so long since I have had a litter that I am needing reassurance.

Hi there Teresa
Mine went out for the first time today, only a couple of them, they were terrified, poor wee things, they are playing around the back windows not going rite out, but thinking about it..it was 20 degrees here during the day, at the moment, and rather overcast, but I did put their tea out there, they will have their supper inside, it will be too dark and cold by then. We are high up here apparently the Islands north of here are on a par with the Arctic Circle. So it is getting cold now..you are lucky having some heat we really don't see that much sun etc. Dee and the gang
And again thanks for the comments again...
