Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World

... I dare to show you photos that are far too grainy and blured like the one above (find the deer anyway) or beyond help like the one below, which is overexposed and with too much flash and has bad colours.

The next one is even perfectly out of focus (there are two squirrels on that tree btw.) - but who cares: Joy is happy!! And so am I!! 

For this is the way, we used to walk and still walk most of the time (oh I was ever so glad when that line started to relax about a year ago and the constant pull stopped, which gave me hip- and backache!) - and I know, such an inhabited forest is not ideal for walking a Setter :-)), but we live right on the edge of it! 'Are you coming or what?':

I do hope, this is not just a phase but the harvest of our training and a maturing girl - but this is my pride and 'Joy', staying with me with a smiling face and a wagging tail and an unhooked leash! - at least on one stretch of our walk...

And I also hope, I will be able to handle the camera and the dog at the same time more often from now on - most of the time, I did not even bother to take one with (camera that is)!! But if willing, that rascal of mine can be ever so obediant! Those who know her, will know what an important step this is for us...

I just wanted to share this with you ... 

PS I know some of you are stil waiting for the Norway pics - they are coming ... promised!!!

OK Cornelia, you call the first one a blured picture ... but I find it really really nice, very artistic, very pleasant to look at. You are far too critical with yourself dear Cornelia, I love this blog, I love all the shades of green, I love over and under exposed photos ... if they are yours that is, not mine  :-)  and we all love to see your wonderful and happy Joy. Many thanks for this green symphony with touches of brown from happy Joy, the squarrels and the deer!!!  :-) A real pleasure for our eyes  :-)  :-)

Wishing my blurry ones looked like these!  and a red fox squirrel?  and I see the grey one so ???  Love that Joy is taking it easy on you so you can bring the camera with you when it is just you two girls!  Keep sharing as we love your pictures and it is always wonderful to see how happy Joy is and what new adventures she is taking you on now.
