Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
My First boy loved to lie by the fire but so close that he was always burning his tail, Paddy was a tap dancer,there was a race horse called Dancing Paddy so thats what we called him too, and Finlay, well he's a expert at telling the time, he purrs like a cat when going to sleep, is also a very loud yawner, and very good at attracting peoples attention while were out, it's like he thinks every single person we pass should stop and give him a fuss the trouble is they do which is why our walks take so long (",)
You could smell his tail burning i'd have to drag him away and he'd just still lie there (",)
Haha Tally does that when the window cleaner comes. I will have to video it next time if I am at home. She chases the cloth round and round up and down lol
My dear Red is now old and sleeps a lot of the time but in her youth she insisted on carrying something on a walk. If I popped into the shop I had to buy a paper for her to carry back, otherwise she would try to steal my shopping. She is also a great snuggler, she loves nothing better than pushing her head into my neck for a cuddle.
Also Finlay is a chaser, birds , squirells, leaves, plastic bags anything that moves, at the resivoir he sits with the bird watchers but he watching them for a different reason (",)
From the time we got Dougal, whenever you'd pick him up, he'd go stiff and arch back and I suddenly realized that he wanted held like a baby! When I gave his breeder an update, I asked if she used to hold him on his back like a baby? She paused and then laughed, saying "Yes, I guess I did!" I tell him, you're going to be too big to carry this way soon! lol
Rob, I know right?!
