My name is Tammy Doyle and I am from Flower Mound Texas. Were in the process of adopting our first Irish Setter tomorrow. Colleen is about a year old and was resue by the North Texas Irish Setter Club. Do you have any advise to share with a first time owner of an Irish Setter? Tammy Doyle
I too am a newcomer to the breed (since 2005).Loved the photos Irish Setters are so good with children.I hope you have a great and safe New Year.It is almost New Year now over here in New Zealand.Take care and I would love to ehar from you soon
kesä alkaa olla lopuillaan mutta toivottavasti saamme nauttia lämpimästä syksystä =) Kesä ainakin täällä meillä päin ei ollut erityisen lämmin!
Toivottavasti pennut ovat jo löytäneet hyvän ja rakastavan kodin.
Kyllä mulla on pennut alkanut vähenteleen. Mulla on 1 narttu ja 1 uros jäljellä. Syksy tänne tupsahti sateen kanssa. Toivon minäkin hienoa syksyä. Kesä oli tosiaan lämmin heinäkuun puolella. Kyllä me ollaan tosiaan saatu nauttia kesästä.
Must be wonderful to see something like Reindeer wandering about, we have them in the Cairngorms Although I have never seen them, there were a few in Edinburgh last year at Christmas, (I was surprised at how small they were,) but beautiful, and they seemed so gentle...
Keep the pictures coming ;0))

It's fantastic to live close to nature. At the moment I live in the town, rather close to downtown but I have about 2 km way for big area of wild meadows or a wild strip of land along Wistula river. There I can "meet" pheasants, roedeers, fixes... but not so close.
I like your family, dogs and place where you live!!!
My girls have fairly modern lines, Jas is a Caspians she is the niece of Caspians Intrepid, she is out of his sister, he is also her grandfather on her fathers side, too in-breed for me, fortunately she hasn't had puppies, her lines go back to mainly Cornevan.
Saffy is by Shananegan Some Might Say it's Bardonhill he is another well known sire here, she has quite a mixture of breeding in her pedigree.
I used to have Akita's they too were used to hunt bear, same spits shape, and they too pulled sledge's but a bit bigger in body than the Elkhound, I must say they look different here in UK perhaps that is why I didn't recognise them, I do like that shape of dog, (wolf like) I have a thing for Wolves....
Thank you for your comments Speak soon Dee and the girls
I also have plans to move from Warsaw to countryside, first steps have been done - i have some piece of land in the village not so far from the city, I try to spend there as much as possible time in summer. That's wonderful time for me and dogs, maybe in few years I'll realize my plans. That would be fantastic.
I have two rivers close, but they are not so clear, in my opinion, to drink water from them. First, I like more, because for years i spend upon it many hours with my dogs. They love to swim in it, and water is Ok, their hair after bath was clean and shiny. In winter I try to spend there Sundays. Like last one..
Great photos on your page and I shall be interested to see how your Reds progress in their training. Well done on your hard work.
Thanks for the congratulations for my boy getting a Pass certificate on his days out on working training days.
Ah well...you can't win them all....but it will come, perhaps next weekend, I am now waiting for a litter from my Saffy and Mr Jingles, she is getting bigger by the day, I am now hoping that all will go well for her when she delivers her puppies..
Good luck at the show
