Major congratulations to Cassie Allen and Am DC Mythodical's Fiona of Dualac for finishing Fiona's Dual Championship!!!! This is just the 23rd AKC Irish Setter Dual Champion. Sire is Russell's Joseph's Journey X Can Ch Mythodical's Russell's Reba - 7 dual champions in the pedigree!!! I am breeding Joey's sister to Reba's brother this summer - watch for the progress of that litter here and GET YOUR deposits IN!
This week I will send another pup to Norway, and one to Newfoundland! Fun times. I have one lovely companion hunting male from the Rio X Hope litter to place. He is super sweet, laid back (as much as an Irish pup can be!) and points his birds well. I think he will make a fantastic family pet or loyal companion for someone. He loves to play fetch, and he is content to hang out.
Jack is still away at shows and I hope he finishes this spring and summer so I can get back to the field with him. John and SIster are doing well at Trena's, and Opie is going to go visit Kelli in Kansas for awhile. Hope is doing well on her retrieve and I hope - no pun intended - to get her into the Master Hunter field soon. My new pup from Hope's litter by Rio is GORGEOUS! and I cannot wait for him to get out there. Meg continues to mature and I will get to breaking her out this summer - no, really! She is a great little girl, very talented.
Raisin is the matriarch and is my constant companion. We worked a bird in the field at the test last weekend and didn't she stand completely flat footed on her find! Old DOG!
