Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
December 27th, 2010 my father passed suddenly after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It was a very sad time for us as a family, but we did have a wake for him where family and friends had a good time remembering this honourable gentleman. Denis Lowry Russell instilled in me my love of Irish Setters making me a third generation Irish fancier. We had a slide show for Dad showing him with his Irish Kelly when Dad was a boy.
I am currently on the road. I went to Phoenix with my Mom to help her get settled into their winter home, and we drove from BC with the 5 pups that I am running on, Meg, the 11 month old, and good 'ol Raiisn. Friends looked after the pups in California for me while Mom and I went over to Phoenix.
After a nice visit with Mom I am back and working with the pups daily. They are FANTASTIC. They have lovely coperative temperaments, a natural desire to point and stay on point, excellent natural drive to retrieve and I just cannot say enough about them. I will be placing 3 of the pups into trial homes and one into a hunting companion home or beginning trial home. I hope to have photos up soon of the pups on point. At just over 3 months I flushed a bird in front of one of the boys this week and he stayed broke for me. Amazing!
Anyway my life continues to be challenging lately, but this litter keeps me busy and engaged. That's all for now!
