Hello Colette - welcome to the site.
I have of course judged your Irish at Bath Championship Show, and I still have the beautiful framed sepia prints of Portia, available after her Best In Show, Crufts win, in 1981.

Hi there Collette
Oh yes you will get quite addicted to it. I find I have to ration myself to it...There are a few debates on the Forum that get quite heated, Hunting v Showing, you can probably see it from both sides, I have just taken one of my girls to a Working lesson, she did really well, but wants to chase the birds all the time, unfortunately I have never thought that I would work her, so she has been aloud for 31/2 years to chase birds....any suggestions???? Nice to speak to you, speak soon Dee and the girls

Hi Colette!
As an accident I happened to see that you are on this site.
We met some 10 years ago in England together with Per and Tina.
Hope everything is good with you and your dogs!
At the moment my wife Maria and I have 6 dogs
3 Irish setters and 3 English setters.
3 of them are Champions and 5 are winnerclassdogs on huntingtrials.

Thanks for kind words about our Irish! Kennel Discovery, own by Barbro and Bo Rehn, started breeding Irish 1982 mainly based on Clonageeralines and later on they also breed from Thendaradogs. For more information please visit the website, www.kenneldiscovery.se We have big expectations about this last litter with MIller and Siofra. Will put photos here at site later on.

What an achivement to win Best In Show at Crufts!!!! I hope you will add some photos from that moment. Best Wishes Jenny

Welcome to this fascinating setter-site!
I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures of your dogs at work. Somewhere I have a lovely photograph of I think Flame of Tara (?) . must look in my old albums and get it scanned for you.
I was in POD's training course and would have loved to see more Irish, but sadly Glen was the only one there...
wishing you all the best

Hi Colette!
On my pictures from high up in Sweden my dogs are pointing grouse(the Swedish grouses are white in the winter)
Per & Tina still have lines from England and are doing quite well.

Welcome Colette! I have always admired your dogs and love the fact you come from both sides of the setter world!!;o)

I agree Colette! My dogs would prefer to be in the field than in a show ring!! I have never done formal training but I have always encouraged them to look for birds while out in woods or in fields etc!! Sometimes with a bit of success! The instinct is so strong! When we finish in the ring at IKC in Dublin the reward is a run in the open area where the smells are great for dogs! Megan sometimes wants to skip the show part and starts walking towards the open area instead!!;o)

Hello Colette,
Thanks for your comment about Girly picture.
It was my dream to qualify Girly for Crufts. She is qualified once to Three Counties and once to Brussels dog show.We hope all to have a great result as you with Portia.But for me to be qualified is already super.I cannot dream about a result like that. For info Girly is in Yearling class;-)
Best regards, Charlotte.

Hi Colette
I felt for you at Crufts, I think that you are a few days ahead of me as to the throaty chesty cough, you were barking well, As for the IrnBru I can't drink anything else, only trouble is that you could dye your clothes with it. I got some on my white wool hat and I CAN'T get it out, so what does it do to your stomach......still it tastes good...
Next time you should have a proper drink...do you do out other Scottish drink....'Whiskey'???
Speak soon Dee and the girls
