This site was suggested to me by a member I got my Irish Setter pup from. Really enjoying seeing other people's setter photos, just makes you love the breed more. Miley is our 18 month old Irish Setter, Abbey is our 14 month old golden retriever. We also have a Balinese cat and a Long Haired Oriental cat. Reading some of the forum posts Miley would seem to be almost 'typical' of the breed; he shreds his bedding and loves to open the tumble drier and chew the clothes. His recall is middling to fair, but he is notorious for playing deaf when out for hiswalk in the forest. It's only a matter of time before he catches a duck but I 'm not quite sure what he will do with it if he does.
I love a wide variety of dog breeds, but in honesty I am not sure I would ever be without a setter........ I'm hooked!
