Smiling Setters - a happy topic

Posted on August 29, 2007 at 5:42pm 5 Comments

My older setter Maeve (she's just 22 months) smiles. I've posted a photograph but I didn't get the full effect because she put her head down, so it looks a bit like a snarl on the picture, but she bares all her teeth, pulls her lips back, goes all coy, and smiles when she meets us at the gate, if we've been out. The smile is followed by an enthusiastic welcome, so its seems a bit ungrateful to fiddle about with a camera while she's doing it. I wouldn't say its pretty, but its really… Continue

Hi Ruth,
My girl had pale side near whiskers like your Bridget. It looked funny. I trim the rest of this puppy fluff.

Hi Ruth,

Lovely to hear from you! I think I have decided against taking Tilly to Alva, she is just too young to enter by a few days, so it will be Perthshire CC that will be her first outing. But we will be there at Alva as my daughter is keen to see the Junior handling classes at a breed show. She will be entering her first one at Perthshire with Rosie!

Maeve and Bridget look gorgeous together, I'm sure they are best of friends. Tara has taken very well to Tilly, and I love having two. My Tara looks more like a ginger Lab compared to Tilly who has such an elegant fine face, whereas Tara's ears are much shorter and she has a wider skull - and a MUCH wider girth! Grace (who has the Gordons) saw Tilly a few weeks back and told me she looked very much like Maeve - which I took as a great compliment!

Nice to see you here on the site! I haven't posted as much recently as the kids' holidays have kept me busy. There is a Setters in Scotland group that you might be interested in joining, and an Only Two group for those of us with two setters?

See you soon,

Well what a small world eh. I am pleased that you started using the site again, how is the 'baby' doing? well I hope, we will not be having puppies, Saffy was non-co-operative. Ah well better luck next time. I will look forward to seeing you at Alva in a couple of weeks, don't forget that it is being held on the Saturday, (I think) Do come and re-introduce yourself to me, I think that I am going senile, fast, I have a lot of memory lapses. I do have a name for it, but it is not for this site.
See you at Alva, all the best Dee and the girls

Hi Ruth
I love the picture of your setter smiling, I used to have an English setter that used to do the very same thing, she used to get so excited that she used to 'snot' on me at the same time!!
Regards, Deborah

Hope to see you on Saturday next. I was going to use Clacnaha Ami Pierrot, (I think that is how it is spelt) It wasn't just a case of her not being responsive, I think it was just one of those things I wasn't there and I think she she was a bit too guarded and a wee bit nervous, unfortunately next time is 11 months away, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her to come into season sooner, well we can all hope.......Speak soon Dee and the girls
