Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Hi Carmel, still awaiting 2 results and all 3 of mine were sent at same time, yes Graiinne is still a special red even though she is a carrier...
Today we received the first 5 results:
Notorious Knight of the Red Empire: clear
Next Hot Thing of the Red Empire: carrier
Rise and Shine of the Red Empire: clear
Sign of the Time of the Red Empire: carrier
Time Will Tell of the Red Empire; carrier
Thank you Julie for your kind comment.
We thank god and are hugely pleased for all the dogs that are clear, especially any prominent sires, and for all those that are carriers there will be clear dogs that they can use to implement their breeding programmes. We must remain positive or die.
I, personally, am not out of the woods yet and waiting on results for Vita and Edward and of course the sire of my babies.
On another note, it is sad to see that those who have been most vocal on this site in advocating the testing of all dogs for "the good of the breed" and who have commented positively on all the clear results so far, have fallen strangely silent over Louis. But thank you to the very many others for seeing the bigger picture. Wishing you all the luck in the world.
