Hi everyone, sorry I got carried away with reading and replying to threads that I forgot to introduce myself. I have two Irish wolfhounds (7yro and 14mths) they are pets. And I have an Irish Red and White Setter 3yro who we show and work (a little) but is first and foremost a family member. I've had dogs all my life but have just plucked up enough courage to have our first litter. We have had a lot of help and mentoring from other breeders for which we are really grateful and have learned loads from this website, particularly from the diary of a first litter. Our 6 little pups are 31/2 weeks old now and all have lovely homes awaiting. We will be keeping one ourselves although I would have loved to keep them all!
