In loving memory of my darling Flynn, Twoacres Joker The Hooley, who died 3 years ago today. It seems like only yesterday that I lost him. My first show dog, we went on a steep learning curve together, he taught me a lot and we had a wonderful time doing it. He was always full of exuberance, absolutely loved life and he had a fantastic sense of humour. He always thought that he was there to entertain everyone. In the ring he would often bark all the way back to the judge and if I wasn't quick enough he would sometimes throw himself round their neck to say hello! Most people found it amusing, but there were some who didn't have a sense of humour. So naughty as a puppy, we called him Hooley O'Flynn and the name stuck. All his life he made sure that he did everything HIS WAY, right to the end. I miss him so much. Sleep well my handsome Irish man, you are forever in my thoughts.

he was a wonderful dog Michelle, I know how you miss him, I believe he plays sometimes with my Tara on the green meadows behind the Rainbow Bridge.

You'll be together one day again, and carry one with his antics, we will all meet our lost loved ones again, if we are really lucky...

He was a very handsome guy and spirited.
Setters the more naughty the more loved they are. And that's it!!! Lovely memories, caress him in mind from me:)

I remember your Flynn well Michelle and his fun-loving temprament, you were never sure if he was going to show seriosly or opt to provide the cabaret instead! He was so unlucky ot to have got that 3rd all important CC but he will always be a star in your heart. When shall we see you about again? I want to buy some more of your delicious liver cake for the family. Love, Lynne xxx

Lovely dog.
I can imagine how much you miss him Michelle.

Thanks for that Lynne, but Flynn didn't have any CC's, just his stud book number several times over. It was Fergus who missed out on that 3rd CC.
