Hi Estelle,

Thank you for your kind comments on my dogs and also for your interest in Captiva. I've owned Irish Setters for 38 years, have shown them for almost 20 years, and serve on the Board of Directors of the Irish Setter Club of America. I am not a breeder, and all three of my current dogs are from Jill Taylor at Captiva Kennels. Their temperaments are marvelous - I live with three intact male, ages 10 years, 7 years, and 14 months. They get along very well. I take them regularly to a local dog park, and they get along beautifully with everyone there as well. I often travel to shows with a friend who owns one of my Eliot's sons, and a grandson as well; we share a hotel room with 4 or 5 intact males with absolutely no issues between them. They play, they eat, and they go to sleep. That's the Captiva temerament.

I would advise you to be in touch with Jill Taylor, Captiva Kennels, who breeds these magnificent and sweet Irish Setters.

Hi Estelle! I've had some trouble to upload photos but Jamie's photos should be up in a bit! Oh but she is at a terribly naughty age right now...I want to ring her neck every second day :-) But when she looks at me with those round eyes, my heart melts! We've started jogging together and it's going well. She is very interested in road-kill and often cuts in front of me but slowly she is understanding that the point is to keep on jogging and not eating!

I'm so glad to hear their brother is doing so well! I would love to show Jamie and Fiddich (my husband is not so keen on the idea...he says only females may be shown :-) ) but just don't know where to start. We've started with field trials and they enjoy that so much!

Keep well and send our regards to Karla!

Morning Estelle,

Have just been viewing the LOPRA rcd 4 results with have just been posted on www.the kennelclub.org.uk suggest you view.  Regarding our recent telephone conversation I  thought it might be a good idea for you to contact Kate d'Avies  who imported SA Ch Cataluna Red Wine of Moondancer from Mrs. Rose (in Karla's ancestry).  Kate can be contacted on 072-1230690 (e-mail d'avaries@vodamail.co.za)

Sadly Kate's Raffety passed away at the beginning of last year.  Do mention my name and wish her a Happy New Year on my behalf when you communicate.

Await your response

Bridget Simpson
