Hi Sue, nice to see you on the site, lovely pics, No I am not going to S.K.C I have been in hospital so I am still tottering about on crutches, dont think I will be going any where for a couple of months.............Sue
Hi Sue, nothing serious, I had a bunion ...HUGE....but when I went to see about having it removed I was referred to a Podiatist, who was concerned that all my toes were twisted as were all the nerves and tendons..now explains why my leg used to hurt like hell and give way ...so the wonderful man took me in and removed the union and then broke all my toes which are now pinned and screwed to a bar and straight....so I am grounded for a couple of months, its like being in prison....... the girls have been very good and are going out for walks with various people and husband and daughters have done all shopping etc so thats lovely..hopefully next week I can totter around the garden..though the weather hasnt been great here, hopefully it will improve..like the foot and I can aquire a nice tan...Take care.Sue
Hi Sue, Welcome to our group. I've just been looking through your pics. Your Irish are beautiful. I have two Setters, one Irish & one English.
We got them both as baby puppies together and they are now just turned 7. Just the best of friends and a joy to live with. I'm sure you will love it here. Lots of great people to meet and beautiful photos to look through.
Lynn & girls in Oz.
I do not understand well your question, because it is broken English? Puppies are now the champions of Serbia, and Italy, not long stenad had a plan to pair Cashmere next year but I have not chosen males.

Oh if it hadn't been for this particular dad there wouldn't have been any babies at all, he knows his trade. They are very pretty babies. Thanks for all the comments and will keep you informed and believe me there will be lots of pictures.
Hi Sue, I think everyone's brain was rained out by the time the BBQ came round...what a day! Glad that you liked the critique, your girl is very nice indeed, just loved her head & the fact that she had some forechest; so many setters have so little that they are like pointers in front! What a pity she did not get a write-up for her big win..soooo disappointing. My ex didn't do a write-up when he judged dogs @ Crufts a few years ago & I cannot tell you how many people have approached me to say how disappointed they were; I think some judges think they are doing the exhibitors a favour judging their dogs & forget that everyone has paid good money for the judges opinion so are entitled to know what that is. I try to make it a ruile to do mine as quickly as possible after a show, as after all until i have done this I haven't completed the job i was asked to do is the way i look at it. Thank you so much for allowing me the priviledge of going over her....best of luck for her future career.
