My greatest interest in life is dogs and especially my own two irish setters. I came in contact with irish setters for the first time in 1973. A friend of mine had one in her family. It was a small male. He was from huntinglines and was called "Rödlus". I decided then that I would have a setter of my own later in life. Several years later I had the opportunity to be taking care of another male irish setter. This was a much bigger one from showlines and that was it. I felt this was my kind of dog. When I got my first dog in 1992 it was a mixtbreed between irish setter and flatcoated retriever, he was a handfull. When he died in 2004 it wasn't hard to decide what breed to buy next. I never since had reason to regret buying an irish red setter. I will stick to it for the rest of my life.
Hi there Weera love your pictures (love the sheep)... I think that the ear thing is something 'in' Setters they all seem to do it when running in high grass or corn.. I too think that it is a lovely picture, Saffy just loves life and she will go on like that (running and bouncing) for ever (I hope). Thanks again for the comments Dee and the girls
Ja, det var tråkigt. Det är så kul att träffas och se hundarna när det är ljust. Men det kommer säkert fler tillfällen. Vi får verkligen hålla tummarna för Siofra, som jag har väntat på detta och många med mig :) Hade bra!
