Hi Phil!

Nice to hear that they are in good hands! So you are waiting for a new foster now? Are there a lot of them in the states?
Luckily there are peple like you out there taking care of them.

All the best, Kristina

Its lovely and very nice to know that your foster kids are in good hands and with a vet too.
She will know exactly what to do and everything
Yes i am at school most of the day but as soon as i get home its straight into the living room and put the dog leads on and go out for hours with them. Usually 3:30 to 8:30 on a school day and all day on the weekend. They love it and when they get in its straight to bed :-) :-) I love it
Im hoping to get some more photos uploaded soon as the weather is alot better and the countryside looks beautiful in the summer/spring
Speak soon

Hi Phil - glad Chase etc have gone to their forever home. You must be a great guy to take in foster dogs, knowing they're only staying a while. It'd break my heart to give them up too, even when I knew they were going to a good home.

Hi there Phil Thank you so much for your kind words, don't put yourself down, you have the rite to your own opinions, and others should respect you for them. You know what they say...(you can't please all the people all of the time). we don't all have the same views, and people should accept that. You have as much rite to an opinion as the next person. It would be boring if we all thought the same. I happen to agree with you, completely..Dog showing is ''judged'' by interpretation, one persons interpretation of what the dog should look like, this small clique, (the top judges) determines what the future of the breed should be, shape, size and hight etc. If we are breeding these dogs we should go with what WE like, this may not make you very popular but WE have to live with the result, and yes we should like it...''Just my opinion'', others may not like it but....I personally have to go with my conscience. Please I'm not a hero just a self opinionated old lady......
All the best speak soon Dee and the girls

hi phil many thanks for email.its good to hear that nola is settling in,she may be small but im sure she will have a big heart!!!!noticed you said she was sniffing a lot our layla does and its the other senses that are much stronger when the dog is blind.ours has got to that stage when shes walked a few yards shell roll and im sure shes just leaving her scent in case she goes too far away from us.anyway all of you take care and id be pleased if you did keep in touch

Hi there Phill
How is it going with your new 'charge'??? I hope she is settling in well, we need more like you, I wish I had the courage to do the same, I admire people like you.
Speak soon Dee and the girls

Well it is always going to be difficult introducing a new dog into the house. Dogs fighting is always so scary, but I am sure that they will settle down. I am also sure that they will be sleeping together, before too long, as for the cat, well it just goes to show that her nose is still very good. Good exercise for her, don't suppose that the cat is too happy about it all though, again I am sure that she will learn to get out of her way, they (cats) so soon find out how to hide from dogs...I bet the other dogs will soon be showing her the way to go, Saffy is like a guide dog for Jas, although Jas still has some sight, (she does have an advantage over your new girl.) Please keep me informed as to how she is getting on, good luck to you. Dee and the girls

Dear Phil, I am very happy with my dogs. My older dogs are very good boys and girls and they have great results, but it is not the most important to me. My life have no sense without them. I have exelent puppies now and I hope so that they will be happy with new , future owners one day when they live me.
If you want to know more about my dogs you can contact me - lonisland@gmail.com

Regards, Sandra

Hi there Phil
Not sure about England, but here in Scotland it is for a change warm, today, we have been getting regular rain, and its been freezing cold, no good for me but great for the girls and, I hope, Saffy is pregnant, so she is feeling the heat, she was really uncomfortable last night, she was OK once I had opened the windows though. I have to say that she is like your Gordon barks if I am doing anything that she doesn't want me to, unfortunately she could eat for Scotland at the moment, but she has just nicked some Mango skin and a quarter of the pip, I do hope she is going to be OK with that, I do have to be so careful not to leave anything on the side in the kitchen at the moment, turned my back and it all disappeared, she is so quick. Will not be able to get much sleep tonight worrying about her...Ah well the things we do, and do keep up the good work with your SOS's I wish I could do something like that I would just get too upset..I used to take in all soughs of animals once but I cant do it any more...
At 2:59am on July 22, 2009, Sandra Zivanovic said…
Thank You Phil, it is very important to me because I just live for them. I hope that they will find good new owners. They are 3.5 months old and they are so preety now. Tomorow I will add some new pictures.
Regards from Sandra with love

Hi Phil ...your babies are beautiful....but don't tell Katie she is only Queen of all she surveys in Oklahoma.........Molly here has Missouri covered.  I see you foster for SOS....have to ask how hard is it to let them go when you find them a home?  I have followed their site for quite a while and I was hoping to find an IS there from them when Miss Molly here popped up on that baseball game needing a home.  Year later I fell in love with McArthur they had on their site......spent the better part of last July's vacation trying to talk my better half into seeing if he might add the male componet to our Irish Setter life here.....by time I got back he already had a home.:)  Wish  I had the acreage you all have as then I would have a pack of wild redheads running and hunting all day.  We believe Molly is from field stock....our first IS was and she is so similar in feathering and also in that hunting instinct.  Do you do field work with yours?
