May 2012



This update can´t contain anything else but one of the most happiest moments we have had in the doggie world.
World Dog Show-2012 in Salzburg, Austria.

135 Irish Setters were there. The judge was Mr Rafael De Santiago. Mr De Santiago gave every dog a fair chance.
He looked at them and had them run up and down and then around. Mr De Santiago knew what he wanted, a dog with
excellent movements.
The final lineup wasn't the most even when stacked, but they where all dogs with excellent movements.

I can´t really describe the feeling when Melvin in the end goes Best Of Breed and World Winner-2012.
We were over the moon and I don´t think we are back on earth yet.

And not to forget our little girl Jazza. She has just turned 9 months and this was her first official show.
There was 18 girls in juniorclass and Jazza wins it all and became Junior World Winner-2012.
What a happy day. I´m also very glad that Jazza's breeders were there and could share this with us.

I thank everyone for all congratulations we have received. It really warms.




March 2012

It´s been a long time since we updated our homepage. Now it´s looking a bit different. We have new pages
with more information about Melvin and his offspring.

In september 2011 we went to Åland and their Internationell Dogshow. We entered Melvin for
judge Nicola Ruigrok, Ireland. Melvin ended up as 2nd best male.

Next show ain´t until may 2012. Then we will be at the Swedish Kennelclub Show in Stockholm.

I can´t be anything but proud of Melvins offspring so far. His first litter has had very big success in the showring.
The latest is that Applegrove Bechamel became BOB, Groupwinner and BIS-3 at Lithuanian Winner Show.
In the second litter we have Red Rhythm´s Chilling And Jazzing. He became Latvian Junior Winner and ended up
as third best male, only eleven months old.

For more information and photos of Melvins offspring please take a look at Melvin's litters.

In january I flew down to Hungary to bring Jazza home with me. I had been in contact with Mr László Tóth,
kennel Garden Star for some time. I was curious about "purple girl" as she caught my eyes when I saw
photos of her at the homepage of Garden Star.
László's intention was to keep that girl but he was willing to sell her to me if I promised to show her.
And that we will do.
She is a joy to live with and she is very easy to have around.
Thank you so much László for this lovely girl.




March 2011



Soon we will be in the end of this summer. It always passes by to fast and it´s a pity that the weather is so up and down.
And for me it´s far to cold.
We have been to a whole lot of shows in a few weeks and only one show remains in Sweden for us this year.
Here are the results:

The last result I want to present is from a show held by the Irish Setter Association of Sweden. It´s only a unofficial result
but for us it counts very high.
The judge this day was no one less than Mr Jeremy Bott, kennel Thendara. He is a A-listed judge from England,
a breedspecialist who also has been judged the Irish Setters at Crufts.
Melvin ended up as 2nd best male this day with this lovely critique:

" Beautiful presented dog with a wonderful coat. Very stylish on the move. Well constructed with a lovely body.
In great condition. Nice short hocks. Kind expression. Head a little heavy for me and a different type.
Finnish of the croup could be better, but a spectaculare dog both moving and standing. "


This result together with the critique made us very proud. The fact that such a respected man as Mr Bott could see
and appreciate Melvins qualitys despite he is of a different type, meant a lot to us.



Finally we also got the confirmation from F.C.I that Melvin now is an International Show Champion (CIE).
He is only three years old but he is CIE, Nordic Winner-09, Estonian Winner-10, Lithuanian Winner-11.
He has also been winning the breed and the group in four different countries.

Melvin has just turned three years old. We took him on a trip to Lithuania and their WinnerShow. We had some fantastic results.

Finally one year and one day has passed since Melvin took his first CACIB. Thanks to the results in Lithuania we can now apply
for the C.I.E- title. What a great start to this year of showing!




September 2010

The autumn has arrived and with it comes the every day routines.
We went away one week to a Swedish Island, Gotland. We rented a beautiful house there and had a lovely
week full of fun and adventures. Of course we combined it with a dogshow...
As a matter of fact we have been on three shows since last update.

With this fantastic results he now has five CACIB in three different countries.
Unfortunately it has to be atleast one year and one day between the first and fourth CACIB to receive the International Show Champion-title.
So we have to be patient and get a new CACIB after september 30th this year.

If you want to see more pictures of Melvin you are welcome to visit his site on Exclusively Setters.

We also have a lovely, big bunch of kittens. Our beloved Selma gave birth to 9 kittens in the end of July.
There are 5 boys and 4 girls. The colours are black, black/white, chocolate and chocolate/white.
They may also be with silver. For more information please visit the ''Present Litter'' page.
Also take a look at our plans.
