Irish Red and White Setter Club Breed Show 2014

 The Club Show for the Irish Red & White Setter Breed has been held for many years in conjunction with the Irish Breed Society Championship Show. The news that the Irish Breed Club will not be facilitating us this year was met with some surprise and disappointment as I was only informed of this during a phone conversation in regards to the show with the Irish Breeds Society’s Club Secretary on 11th August.

 I was informed that this decision was taken on 22nd March 2014.  As I stated we were not made aware of this until 11th August 2014.

It is most regrettable that the IRWS breed show won’t be part of this celebratory show of Irish Native breeds I  would like to take this opportunity of thanking the Irish Breed Society and their committees who facilitated us over the years.

The Club Show will now be held in conjunction with the Irish Gundog Field and Show Society which will be held on 25th October 2014.

The Irish Red & White Setters will be judged by Wil Hochstenbach, Netherlands. He is a FCI Group 7 & 8 Judge.

Schedules and entry forms can be found on www.dogshowentry.ie.

I would like to thank the Irish Gundog Field and Show Society for coming to our assistance at such short notice.

The second generation of the Outcross Programme arrived on the 18 August 2014 in Scotland.

A litter of fifteen puppies, ten are well marked red and whites, and five are red with white markings.

Sire is Pallas Green Laird.  He is DNA tested clear for CLAD, VWD, PRA (cdi and rcd4), hip scored 3.3 and has a BVA clear eye cert.  Dam is Dalriach No Pasaran.  She is CLAD, VWD and rcd4 clear, hip scored 0.0 and ha a BVA clear eye cert.

The litter has bee registered with the UK Kennel Club, with two asteriscks after the names to denote this is the second generation of the outcross.  The red puppies will be going to working and pet homes, not for breeding, but some of the red and white puppies are available t people interested in taking the outcross programme forward to the next generation.

PALLAS GREEN (Ludo)

Owned by Margaret Sierakowski

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sire = IRS Buccaneer

Dam = IRWS Special Gift from Shadow Dog

Under IKC rules for outcross breeding this dog Ludo cannot be mated to an Irish Red setter but can only be mated to an Irish Red and White Setter.  He cannot enter for shows but can be entered in IRWS confined stake for breeders to assess his working capabilites.  Looking at these photographs he will undoubtedly make a fine shooting dog.
