My English Setter girl, Misty made a new friend today, a Handsome Newfoundland named Diesel. Because Misty is deaf she did not hear Diesel approach her so he took her by surprise. Misty was very shy with Diesel because she is missing her English Setter companion, Hobson very, very much. Hobson died from Hemangiosarcoma on 28 December 2015. We are both lost without our precious English Setter boy. If Hobson had been there he would have sent Diesel packing quick smart. After the initial meeting Misty and Diesel got on very well.

Hi James

I had problems loading this video yesterday and realised today that the wrong Embed Code was brought across?? How the video loaded, I don't know?? In fixing this today I accidentally deleted the video and your comment. I saved your comment though which was: After being initially spooked, Susan, I think she started to come round to Diesel. Don't think that his size helped matters either mind you!

My response was: Hi James, How are you? I often think of you and Romeo. When I started to take this video of Misty I did not see Diesel approach her either. Considering that until a couple of weeks ago Misty has not allowed another dog to go anywhere near her I feel she coped as well as could be expected particularly because Diesel is a large boy and he was very keen to get to know her. Misty has been feeling very sad without Hobson. I take her out every day because she loves her walks. She is okay on the end of a leash but she can become apprehensive in a large leash free area like the Botanical Gardens because Hobson has always been with her. Sending you Love xxx

It might not have been a good idea my trying to load these videos in my current state but they are precious memories even if they make me cry and my ES page is for my beautiful English Setters and their family members.

Thanks for reinstating, Susan. Got to read the rest of what you said too!

Hi James, Yesterday was not one of my better days so I suppose it is understandable I had so much trouble loading a simple video. Regarding your comment, poor Misty in her shy and fragile state, of all the dogs to flirt with her it had to be a Newfoundland! It could have been worse though because despite his size, Diesel is a gentle boy and after his initial attraction to Misty, he went back to his frisbee (much to Misty's relief)!

So nice to see Misty happy and confortable with the big boy : )
