    They are beautiful :)

    I know a lady who breeds them, i've been to Crufts with her a few times and her and the dogs are crazy.... but lovely :D

    They are stunning looking dogs, I love seeing them in the ring :)
     
  4. Wow! I'd love to see pictures of Zoe! (If possible)

    Yes, they have lovely 'feathered' legs! They are truly stunning - and yes, I'd say 99.9% crazy. They do, however, have their very rare calm moments! :p

    Can you see the ASBO twins the 2 fawns at the front going for the throat they were little monsters even at such an early age. I don't have many photos of Zoe as she 's got older as they usually end up as a red blur

    She loves them she lies down and lets them climb all over her which we were surprised about as she is such a clumsy great lump normally. The only thing is the pups do tend to chew her feathers which is one reason why we are not showing her anymore. I think sure gets them to play then sneaks their food when they are busy charging round
     
  9. Ooh wow! Shes gorgeous!!

    adore setters, i had one many moons ago could never pronounce his name lol. cerrig cylyn noble fir , called him henry, we had years of fun together.

    i got a few stories about old henry and his antics. he was massive for a setter too really tall and well built.

    Zoe's KC name is Casachared Chloe 'O' Galway at Oakmoorehill. You want to try writting that in the name space on entry forms for shows.we always said when she was little her name was bigger than her.

    Hello, I am soon to have an irish setter as I pick my pup up in 1 week, 6days (not that I am counting) and can't wait! Have wanted this pup for a long time and have waited forever. Nervous but very, very excited - beautiful dogs:D

    Hi

    I have an Irish setter her name is Bronte, yes a complete nutter!!!
    She is 11 months old.
    I love her but she is completely barking mad!! Very loyal and loves her cuddles.:)
    She is meant to be my dog but she definately loves my husband more, probably because he works away from home and I am the one doing the discipline!!
    I have posted a few thoughts on here previously about Bronte so i won't bore you all to deaf again about her antics.

  15. My grandad used to have an irish setter called Danny when i was a young child. I always remember us walking him on the beach in skegness and watching him run in and out of the sea and acting the crazy fool. he made me laugh. i was so upset when he died of old age
