been very busy over the last few weeks, so many shows.
We had to make the sad decision to have Erin ( Timeltell )
put to sleep in the middle of it, just old age had caught up with her, nearly 13 years.
Connor will not be going to any more shows, his coat has gone all fluffy & I have cut off alot of his feathering. Makes it much easier to manage as it used to take longer to get out all the burrs & knots after exercise than the time to walk him!!
Hope you have sold all your puppies
Hi Kirsty - what lovely pictures! Sorry to hear about your health problems - appendix must have been hell. Do hope all goes well. Yes, I saw your litter on the website - very tempting but at the moment I cannot add to numbers as the new house isn't suitable. A lot has to be done here yet. Not been to many shows - too much going on and the love of my life is not to keen though of course he wouldn't want to stop me going. At long last my young
sorry Kirsty, the last message I wrote was sent before I had finished writing it! I was saying that my Ellie (litter sister to the CC winner at Nat Gundog) is putting on some weight and I am showing her at Bournemouth. So I expect I'll be doing a few more shows, sometimes with Robert and sometimes without. Hope to see you at some of them.
thanks for your comments, I agree about Eddie - shame he has not been used more, but as you say he is not the type preferred.
Like the look of your pups! Bet you will have fun with them.
I don't think I'll do any showing with Glen in the UK - certainly not yet as he is still immature and also: very like his dad...
But I am planning to visit the UK in February with him and take part in a field training week up North in Kelso! I'm looking forward to that tremendously!
hi kirsty you found the site then. hows the puppies are they all fixed up wirth homes now.I went to visit my ill puppy dont know if i told you she had a problem over the jab ok now though . i had another back for a couple of days this weekend.
Thanks for your kind comment on Dillan.
Well, I see you like the Copper's bunch and so do I... young Dillan's father is Copper's Mean Mr Mustard (lives in Sweden!). This is Erin's second litter, so Dillan is a half-brother to my Glen.
you can have a look at the pedigree on my website

I'm very happy for Nigel & Jane!
Bye for now,
Thanks for your comments, Kirsty. I could not do the field training on my own - it helps to have a prfessional gundog trainer to go to for lessons. There is sure to be someone within a reasonable distance from where you live?
dear kirsty thanks for your answer,i pass a very good cristhmas whith the family,and i will pass the 31of dec in my country house whith all my dogs.i belive to see you at crufts where i will show 1 male and 1 female.in any case a very very good HAPPY NEW YEAR FRANCESCA
Hi Kirsty ,
I am glad you are off the crutches and might be back showing very soon , I hope you are not in too much pain. Thanks for the good wishes for 2009 , the same to you and all the dogs.Certainly if I hear of anyone wanting a young dog I will let you know or pass on your number. I went to the meet on Boxing Day at Brompton and there was two Irish amongst the crowds and Riley was getting very exited when he saw them , reday for a good gallop and play. Hope to see you very soon. Chris
