Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
I've just started showing with mine, both of us have a lot to learn. We've won quite a lot of rosettes and a trophy so far but boy is mine a handful. He is very dominant and tried humping me at the last show in front of everyone. Much to my embarrassment.
I've got my second championship show this Sunday - not great timing as I've just been away for a week leaving Bess in the care of my 18 year old son. So we've not been practicing, and she's lost half her coat as well! At our first Champ show at the end of May she behaved okay in her first class, but in her second the judge laughed at her and said she was obviously enjoying herself .... well I'm glad one of us was! Unfortunately there were two of us running around on two legs! :0)
LOL! You need lots of luck and plenty of Setter Angels. Dont get in a twist - go along with your dog and have fun x
