I have, on occasion, felt guilty for intentionally bringing more puppies into this already over populated with mutts, world. I know there are lots of dogs and cats that get put down every day, because some human was irresponsible and allowed their animal to roam and add to the population. I truly hate that. I feel terrible for these poor unloved animals. But, ya know, I can not change that. If I could, I would. It certainly is not of my doing, and I can not take responsibility for what others are so careless about. I try to help. I promote adoption, in the right circumstances, and I donate to shelters. But I won't stop breeding these beautiful, hard working, loving, Gordon Setters, because there are too many mutts in the world.
The puppies we bring into the world, are almost always wanted, and spoken for, before they are born. There are people in the world who want certain breeds, like working dogs or bird dogs, like our Gordon Setters. I love my Gordon Setters so it's very easy to understand why people seek them out. Those are the people we breed Gordon Setters for. They, are the one's we plan our litters for. They are the people who promise to love our puppies, care for them, and help them live up to their potential. Gordon Setter owners are very special, just like Gordon Setters.
I'd like you to meet a few of them here. This is why we bring these puppies into the world.
|This is Molly and Dolly......now Reba. How could I feel guilty about that little princess smile?!|
|And what little boy, doesn't need a puppy?|
|Kelly, their Mom, and Reba. Reba will live on a ranch in Montana, with her kids and horses and lots of people. What a great life for a Gordon Setter!|
|Mark and his kids, Bailey and Luke, with Hank, who is now, "Sure Thing Hammering Hank". What a great name for a bird dog!|
|Ahhh......Puppy Kisses are the best!|
|And this is Ann, a first grade teacher. Patsy....now Dixie, went home with Ann to live in Wyoming. I bet Dixie will be the super star of Show and Tell Day!|
|This is Rose Marie and Mary Anne, with Emmy....now Grendal. Sisters from Great Falls, who are going to spoil her rotten! What more could I ask for??|
|This is Mark, Kathleen, and Ann, who is taking June to Spokane. Obviously, June is very happy about that!!|
|This is Mark and Judy with Cash.....now Flash. Mark works for the Federal Fish and Wildlife Service. Cash is going to have lots of adventures tagging along with Mark.|
So you see, our puppies are very wanted and well loved. They are all where they should be. I'm going to bed now. And I'm going to sleep very well.
