Five years. (Previously owned one for 12 years 20 years ago)
My wife and I own two Irish Setters, 1 Female, Rusty, (Madalines Pride, D.O.B.05.05.05),
1 Male, Henry, (Banksett Stormy Evening, D.O.B. 10.04.08)
We also own an English Setter, Male, Charlie, (Koolunga Golden Hope, D.O.B. 06.09.09.
All 3 attend regular training classes and our eldest dog, Rusty, is a member of the Dog Display Team that is attached to the Training Centre we attend.
Yes it was, how's he doing? Look forward to seeing some pictures of all your dogs. I see you have an English as well now. I unfortunately lost mine in May this year but hopefully will be getting another at the end of this year.
Sorry it took me so long to reply but for some reason its stopped notifying me when I have a message. We got a English Setter puppy yesterday, an orange belton like yours. Only had to go to Burton-on-Trent but there are so few about these days I would have gone anywhere. I've never had an orange before but I don't suppose the colour matters too much. I've always seemed to go for blue beltons with eye patches.
All the best
