On Sunday 27th May we had to sadly say goodbye to our beloved Jack at just 5yrs old.Right from the start he was an "in your face" dog being the only puppy who licked us when we went to see them. He was coughing when we brought him home from his breeder and continued to be unwell for 3yrs until he was finally, by chance, diagnosed with megaesophagus....of course he didn't know he was ill and when he felt well would "talk" all the time, poke his nose into any bag or cupboard, open any door or gate..in general a typical naughty and affectionate setter. He had episodes of being poorly and needing antibiotics and always bounced back...sadly, on this occasion he couldn't.We miss him terribly of course but have so many happy memories, loads of photos and several videos and he will always have a very special place in our hearts. Merlin and Harry are still coming to terms with him not being here as are we but we feel very lucky to have had so long with such a lovely boy. I like to imagine him running freely....love you monkey xx

in memory of our 4 beautiful Irish Setters Sheena 14.5yrs, Zelda 14yrs, Dempsey 15.5yrs and Wellington who left us at 4yrs of age so young and we had so much fun in your very short life. Rest in peace you were loved so much and we will never forget you.

Christine, I feel for you so much.   I'm so sorry that your're beautiful boy is now at the Rainbow Bridge but he will be happy & running free with all his lovely setter friends. 

I have two Setters who have left us & I feel & love for them every day.  My beautiful Irish girl Skye, a free spirit, an amazing girl who I loved dearly & my special, wonderful little English girl Megg; special in every way. 


Love you so much, by beautiful girls.  Forever in my heart.

In memory of my special Scout who was only 2 1/2 when he was diagnosed with SLE and we let him go two months later.  Such a happy boy and so loved by all especially by Lady and Tiz who are now with him. Scout opened the world of setters for me as he was my first. Run and play love, lots of kisses

In memory of my first boy Daxter he came into my life as a 3 year old dog and made himself at home from his very first day. He was my best friend and loved me with all his heart and I loved him too. He stayed with me till he was 13 years and I know if he could he would have stayed longer but it was just his time. Good night my baby I will see you again some day.

Tonight, I was going through this site.  It brought back so many memories of my heart dog, Maxie.  His real name was Kenobi Maximum Force, but we called him Maxie.  He was a rescue.  He was about 2 1/2 years old when we adopted him.  He was extremely sick with infections and parasites when he came into our life.  After innumerable trips to the vet and endless prescriptions, we got him cleaned up.  Besides his ailments, he had so many behaviour issues.  We worked through them with him.  He was our second rescued redhead.  He turned out to be the best dog ever.  I truly believe we were blessed to have him in our lives.  He did have medical issues throughout his lifetime, but we were able to manage them with the help of our vets.  He was the most loving dog we've ever had.  He had the softest brown eyes.  Maxie crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on June 22, 2008.  He developed ideopathic hemolytic anemia, an awful disease.  It struck without warning.  So, we had him transferred to a specialty hospital which had an intensive care unit.  He spent 5 days there being treated & transfused.  The veterinary internist gave him a good prognosis, but his coming home was not to be.  While there, he bloated, but then he torsed.  Because of the anemia, he couldn't undergo the surgery,  We lost him that night.  We would have given anything to save him.  I still miss him and will always have a special place in my heart for him.  Our final gift to him was to have his ashes buried at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in southern Utah.  They have an animal cemetary (Angels' Rest) there.  I think it is the most beautiful country on this earth--Utah's redrock country.  It's a fitting place for this beautiful redhead---he would have loved it---the high desert with all the wildlife a redhead could wish for.  Run free, Maxie, on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge until we meet again.

Last year I lost my two girls: beloved and unequalled Bajka and her daughter beautiful Kruszyna. Five years ago I lost my boy Pielgrzym. There were fantastic  15 years with them. They completely changed my life.

In few day it would be Kruszyna and Pielgrzym 12 birthday. I'm still thinking about my red friends
