How many Irish Setters do you have?
2 girls right now: Neita & Zilou. dear Odin & Danka watching over us from doggie heaven :(
How long have you owned Irish Setters?
since 1997 february
About Me:
WW'03 EUVW'08 Ch C.I.E. Berboss Instant Coffee (1996-2010) - for me just Odin - was my first setter, she left me 2nd January 2010 after 13 years of friendship. Odin was my all and everything, my best friend in good and bad times. She taught me so much about canine intelligence and behaviour, about love and loyalty. She was purchased for being a normal dog but very soon I got bitten by the show bug. She was a real show girl and compensated my faults in the show ring :) It was her soft character and look-at-me attitude that charmed all people meeting her, friends, strangers and even judges. Thank you Odin for sharing your life with me!
After much thinking I decided to get another girl and doing some research, I ended up in Sweden. This is how Danka - MultiCh C.I.E. C.I.B. Copper's Music 'N' Paws' - came to live with us in 2005. And yes, she taught me new things about canine behaviour :) Through her I was able to get to know the naughty and the run-run-run side of the Irish Setter. She is referred to as 'crazy Danka' by the setter club, hm, does it say it all? So different from Odin, but oh so lovable as well. A real clown, adoring kids, loving dog shows and having so much fun in the fields. Having 13 champion titles and being the first setter to qualify in the field on a Hungarian field trial and gaining CIB by this. Very intelligent, observant and empathetic. Thanks Danka for being with me, love you girl!
And then Neita - Full CH Copper's Wine 'N' Roses HJCH RJCH - arrived. Still cannot decide if she has more angel or devil inside her. She is the sweetest, wants to be close to you all the time, would love to crawl under your skin if that would be possible. Everyone is in love with her because of her beauty and character - bet if I would give her away, people would want to give her back the day after :) She is the destroyer in the house, eats sofas and doors but when she looks at you with those eyes, you just can't be angry on her (for a longer time that is...). She is a big actress as well, pretending to be a real blond - was hard to realize that actually she has brains and a lot! Unbeaten in baby-puppy-junior classes, we look forward to challenges in adult classes. Neita is a talent in the fields as well, already managed to get a CQN just one year old. She backs from the first second on and does not point but sets like a real setter :-)
Pawsword Northern Song, little Zilou - the one I know from the first second on, being Danka's daughter. The one that unites all the positive virtues of Irish Setters without having a bad detail. She has only been shown in baby and puppy class because of big sister Neita. Zilou is getting better with every day and seems to develop into a copy-paste of Danka. The best character ever, the best working abilities. The girl that makes me smile with every move she makes. Love you so much, little girl!

Mum put us all into the car for another long trip - this time to the beautiful city of Salzburg in Austria.

I did not care about the city but loved the boars' and deers' smell next to our guesthouse and the nice fields.

Mum said these are…


Neita's big day at the Dutch club show

Posted on May 16, 2012 at 5:15pm 14 Comments

Been trying hard to get to the Dutch club show for years - now finally with success.

And my little wonder girl Copper's Wine 'N Roses saw that beautiful rosette in the morning, with all those pink roses on and decided to take it home !! :) Tears of joy already when she won a big open class at only 25 months old and me totally confused when Neita was chosen as best bitch! thank you Mrs Pollard!

Szilvásvárad Show Weekend 23-25 April 2011

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 3:33pm 24 Comments

Szilvásvárad is a MUST.

Every second year at Easter it is time to move to Szilvásvárad for some days, one of the most beautiful places in Hungary. It is famous for its Lipizzaner stud farm as well. My favourite showground, always perfectly organized and beautifully decorated. It was mostly the weather gods that wouldn't cooperate: 2001 we had hail…
