Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
No questions, no complaints, just a reflection of the wonderful 7 weeks we have had with this lovely boy. We still miss Dublin very much but Cash has filled a void and has brought so much joy back into our family. He is so much fun to spend my days with and requires patience but eventually he figures things out. This week he discovered the rubber mats under our area rugs. It has been a challenge to get him to understand "it isn't happening" when he decides to move the rugs out of the rooms. And that little 24lbs can move a couch if it is on a rug. I use bitter apple often now, to teach him that dining room chair legs aren't bones. It might take him several days and many tries but he does seem to get it eventually. He brings smiles to faces all over town and at many of our play groups and dog parks. He loves other dogs and is learning how to approach and respect others too. The older dogs have taught him more than a few things about manners in a pack situation. He has made some friends and just enjoys car rides, visitors and life in general. I get him out everyday to experience new things and new places. I feel so blessed to have him in my life and hope the months ahead go as smoothly as the first one has. It's fun to see so many other IS puppies right now on the site and I am learning tons from all your experience.
