Our Molly does not hide things but leaves her teddy down the back yard which sometimes is hard to retrieve because of the steep block of land we have. As we do not have snow here how do the dogs go with getting cold. The pictures on this site look like they have so much fun playing in the snow. Molly has just come back from the beach with us but in Sydney dogs are not allowed on the beach so she just stays on the grass near the sand on a lead. Boring.
We do not show Molly. Years ago I used to show but not now... happy just having Molly. Your Molly weighs more than ours. Thedog training do not recommend choker collars. Molly goes back to training this Sunday.. they close over the hot months but is still hot. We live in Sydney not near the floods. I felt so sorry for the people of QLD we live in NSW it is the worst thing that has happened in Australia from my memory. We have had the bush fires which are really bad but this was awful. A friend of mine takes her dog to a dog park she has a boxer but I don't wish to take Molly to one. Would be real fun to have both Mollys play together... bit far to travel for that. Our Molly could put on some weight but she has come a litter of 15 and I think she is quite small for an IS. We love her heaps she is my companion during the day. Still can't imagine the setters in the snow. Most likely because we do not have snow in Sydney only down the snowy mountains in southern NSW. take care talk soon
only just read your message. I love the photos of Miss Molly at Xmas. We spent Xmas in Alice Springs which is in the middle of Australia with our son and his family. Molly had hers at the kennels. She likes it there but hopefully next Christmas our family will be back in Sydney. My son is a pilot and living inAlice Springs to get more flying hours.
thanks. The kennels have playtime but not for long during the day. Our previous setter went there also and they loved her so much and this has been passed on to Molly who is special. They pickup her up from the vets which is local to us and she is transported to the kennels which takes about two hours with other dogs and cats. They are a big concern in Sydney and train dogs for customs. beagles mainly.
Your Miss Molly sits on the lounge the same way as ours. I suppose they all do much the same things.
that photo was taken when we arrived home from the aiport after collecting Molly. She came from QLD. I have two cats and they were used to the previous setter. When she died the other cat really missed her. I was not sure how Molly would go but the trauma of the flight, meeting new people then faced with a 1/1/2 hour trip from the ariport with us via the pet shop where we purchased the bed in the picture I think she was just glad to be settled. She had a long trip to the airport the other end in QLD to Brisbane.
I think I lost my last reply to you. Had a problem with my laptop. Anyway I bought Molly site unseen. She was advertised in our local paper and I phoned the breeder. I have always had girls and she was the last girl available for sale. We said no more dogs after we lost our previous IS last Feb.. due to cancer.
Yes in the 70's they were all the go but people did not understand them and where we were living quite alot were left wondering. They are not easy to obtain now and maybe a good thing because the ones available go to mostly good homes where people are prepared to put in the work. I must admit though Molly is easy and very well behaved. I tried yesterday to take a photo on the lounge as I think she looks like yours sitting relaxing. I am between work at the moment so have the time to spend doing silly things. Hope you receive this comment
when I saw your Miss Molly sitting on the lounge I thought how much ours is like her. Yesterday I took that photo it took ages trying to get her to sit like that, she does it all the time but when you want them to they don't. When we go out we leave Molly inside with the house alarm on (wonder it does not go off) back door open and she just sits on the lounge waiting patiently for us to return. My husband works in the Sydney CBD so is gone for over 12 hours each day. Hopefully I will be working again soon. Your Miss Molly is georgeous. I would have thought Molly would have more feathering but maybe after her next season. Is your Miss Molly desexed?
oh course I forgot. Our last two setters were desexed after we purchased them. The first was around 6 years and her coat went woolly. Second one desexed young and she had some problems with her bladder and also coat. your Miss molly looks great so she is lucky. Really I don't know both our previous ones were from the same breeder and had similar blood lines. Yes they could be twins???
so happy for you she is a lovely IS. Always nice when we can help a dog less fortunate. I have to make the decision regarding having Molly desexed at some stage... all too hard at the moment. She is a delightful IS but I am not interested in showing... You must be having some snow at the moment. I think were I think you are you would have heaps of snow each winter. White Xmas how nice... we cook here at Xmas no hot dinners for us
hope you are o.k.in the snow storm. I am unable to watch the videos due a problem I have on my computer. My son sent me one from Alice and I could not watch it. My computer is fairly new so who knows. Your Miss Molly is very lucky she now has a good home. Too many of them over the years have not. i will have to weigh Molly and get the name of the collar we use for training. The one she wears all the time is just a normal one and we attach the leg. When she goes to training we use another one.
Managed to watch Youtube. She is so sweet.... wonder if they are related, she moves just like our Molly and seems to have a similar nature in the brief bit I watched of the video. It nearly made me cry watching her and so happy she found a home.
the cyclone will be bad. It will hit around 10pm QLD time. Years ago there was a cat. 5 Tracey that hit Darwin this will be the same. More prepared this time. Tell your daughter that was why I waited so long to take the photo of our Molly for you to see how much alike they look. All day today Molly has slept on the loungroom floor. I was trying to get her to cool off in the pool but she won't have it. For some reason she seems frightened of water very strange for IS. I will ask my husband about the collar. As I said we used choker collars previously but the training school bans them. Miss Molly has more feathering on her tail. How old would she be? You most likely told me
I think your Miss Molly is lovely. Not sure of age looking at her because our Molly is a late developer with feathering. Our last one was thicker set and had more hair.
We are not near the cyclone it is over 2000kms away. Australia is such a vast country. Queensland experience more humid weather than us but at present ours is unbearable. Where the cyclone is far north queensland were the croc... are vernous snakes and stingers in the ocean and beach. it is beautiful but it has it dangers. We have had holidays there but not for awhile. Yes the weather is shocking. Torando would be awful.
