We have some cute little puppies!

Eight beautiful puppies have filled our life with joy. Seven of them are brave and energetic boys and one is a cute little girl.

The little ones are after "Kerrylaw's Countesse" (Tessa) and "Dont Blame me" (Chippen). Tessa is a great mother and takes really good care of the bunch.

All the puppies are eating well and growing fast!

A great day at Lahti INT show!

What a day at Lahti INT show on saturday! Our junior boy Balou (Kanelin Make The Cut) took me by surprise by scoring EXC1, BEST DOG 2 and CAC amongst 47 irish red setters! So our baby-Balou cut in line past twenty gorgeous adult dogs and became 2nd best dog.

Tessa (Kerrylaw's Countesse) wasn't left far behind in intermediate class, she scored EXC1, BEST BITCH 3 and CAC.

Great results for the youngsters!…
