Mona Valentine….yes born on Valentine’s Day!
You really took my breath away,
From having everything to having nothing, with me you stayed,
Every bit of love, everything you gave.

You were my special friend and Pet,
Wagging your tail in Burghley Vets,
With love in troubled times you came,
A great comfort to all family who were left in Deeping St James.

On 21st October 2016 we had to say goodbye,
Tears could have filled a bucket, I will not deny,
You even saved me the heart-ache of having you put to sleep,
Your heart stopped beating and we never heard a peep ,
There will never be a better Irish Setter I fear.
Even the most brilliant Vets shed their tears.

RIP Amber
Much loved by family in Deeping St James and will never, ever be forgotten

Sh Ch Braidmount Geisha Girl
12.08.02 – 27.04.14

It is with great sadness that we had to say goodbye to Misha on Sunday. Easter weekend she was exercising on
“The Braids” with Struan & Royale as normal, within a week her hindquarters let her down and we were left with no option to do
the best we could for her. She was “a very special girl”

When we breed a litter or buy in all we see is “promising & potential” in the puppies, they are pets first and the show part
becomes the bonus, so when Misha’s litter was born little did we know that she would go on to do what she did within our breed.

She won her 1st RCC from Yearling in 2004 from Chris Sheldon and her 1st CC at Paignton in 2005 from Dee Milligan-Bott.
Her last CC was won at 8 ½ years at Midlands Irish from Chris Atkinson followed by her final RCC at Crufts from Marita Bott both in 2011,
the picture was taken then. We took the decision then to retire her from the ring although she still wanted to come with us whenever
she saw the show bag.

Gundog Society of Wales in 2009 was the day Misha aged 7yrs won her 28th CC from Pat Butler-Holley to make her the
Bitch Breed Record Holder.  All in all Misha won 31 CC’s (12 with BOB) 16 RCC’s, 6 BIS at Breed Clubs, RBIS at Setter & Pointer 2007,
and BVIS at Darlington Championship Show 2009.

Despite this Record, Will has always affectionately referred to Misha at home as his “Wee Star”.

Granddaughter of Caspians Intrepid (Crufts best in show 1999)


Our beautiful girl came to us as a 7 week old puppy, and gave us over 13 years of immense pleasure, and was very much a member of our family. She came from show champion pedigree, but we never showed her, beautiful though she was. She was just our very special pet, our baby girl. We knew she was the best, we didn't need to show certificate to tell us that!!
We sadly lost her just before Christmas, and miss her so much every day. Until we meet again Amber,
All our love,
Mummy and Daddy (Marina and David Singleton)
Natalie, Nikki, Daniel, Abbie, Kian and Noah.

Our two gorgeous brothers are now together again.
We loved you both so much and you gave us so much Love back.
To see you both grow from tiny puppies to two strong handsome dogs was our pleasure and we will never forget you, you have left a huge hole, which will be hard to fill.

All the Love in our hearts from Clive, Mary, Rupert and Oliver Garland xxxxx

(We found our 2 Red Setters through your puppies page and if feels quite fitting that they
should be remembered on your website)

Basil passed away on the 20th August 2012 aged 12
He was a true companion, friend and bright star with an independent character.
Although, we never showed him he was always a winner with us and one of the most intelligent dogs we have ever known.
We will miss him deeply!  Steven Newton

Rio
 


At 1.25pm on the 29th of June 2012 the life of this wonderful Forfarian dog had to be brought to an end to avoid any suffering - he was only 4 years  & 7 momths old and still acting like a puppy until a few days before his sad end. Four times we have been through this tortureous time,but never with such a young dog -our lives have been torn apart and the void left behind is like a black hole. Was it worth it? Of course it was, as every single day was enriched by his presence. The silent garden which was once alive with that presence is his final resting place -we will never forget you Rio, you lit up our lives every morning and our world was all the better for sharing it with you. As we prepare again for the joy of another Irish puppy we know that your spirit will come through.
Always in our thoughts and in our hearts.

28 April 1999 - 19 September 2010

 You came to us at 9 and a half.  But no one had told you, you were a senior, and it was time to slow down.  You embraced life, and your enjoyment and vigour made us glow with pride.

At 11 you gained the Kennel Club Good Citizen Gold Award.  What a boy!

Our journey had not ended Jay.  There was still so much to see and do.
