That's the secret to the breed that some people think this and therefore exclude themselves from having one of our beautiful breed! My best comment was from a visitor from South Africa who told me my dogs were Red Setters not Irish Setters because he had seen these back home and my dogs had a much richer colour coat!

Our vet also has a special fondness for the boys, but unfortunately after a few temperature and anal glands duties Murhpy does not feel the same way. Just walking Irish is a trip down memory lane with the number of people who have fond memories of a past Irish and want to pat and chat.

Very interesting - and they seem to have lost their popularity everywhere,

I am seeing a few more Irish Setters here in Missouri....part that excites me is that all the Irish Setter "new slaves" have taken the time to research the breed....trained (or in training now) their IS and are besotted with their IS just like I am. Encouraging to see young just married couple two blocks from home here with their lovely Bailey...."big personality" is their best description of her. They remind me sloop much of us when we got our first Irish in 73 when we were newlyweds. This time when I see one I know it is because they love the breed and did their homework instead of the "Irish Setter being the "IT" dog to have....and that is a great thing for the breed and reputation of the breed.....committed to training...understanding and loving IS means these Irish Setters are showing the public how smart...loveable and wonderful an Irish Setter can be with a truly devoted owner.

Oh all so true, our old vet adored our big boy he was at the height of he's veterinary career when setters were at there most popular and Flame brought back many lovely memories to him. And the wagging tale....that's how I pick Ruby from Poppy in the paddocks Rubys tale is like a wind up toy it never ever stops. Others of you mentioned that your stopped often and people tell you there stories of a past Irish the ones I'm told are always of fond happy memories of a happy beautiful breed. :0))
