Hello everyone, I am an expectant owner of an Irish redsetter due end of June. Not sure what sex I will be having yet but seem to be gearing towards a boy and the name Rueben! :)

I grew up with an English Setter. They're great dogs. I too am awaiting the arrival of my pup! Well mine's born but we're still waiting to determine which is ours and it won't come home for at the very least a month. I love the name rueben

Thank you guys/girls and yes I am excited. The pups not due until June 27th, then a a visit to them at approx 5 weeks old and then collect at 8 weeks. Gosh How am I going to contain myself!!!
Hallie - what kind of pup are you awaiting? And yes Rueben seems to be just right for some reason! Have you decided on a sex or idea of names etc. I may change my mind when I see the pups, you never know... Not sure my two cats are going to be happy but I am sure they will let puppy know who's the boss

Oh just noticed hallie that your pic of cat Daisy looks just like my cat dizzy!

Mine's a mixture of sorts. Retriever and Border Collie and perhaps some shepherd in there! I haven't decided which I'm getting I wanted a male before they were born but now I really like this black and tan female, they're only 11 days old! I like the names Rowan and Avery for boy or girl :) Lol Daisy and Dizzy even sound alike! Here the cats are the bosses

Ah, they sound a like lovely names esp Rowan. What a great mix, it will be gorgeous. Gosh you will have a houseful then! Ha, is daisy as dizzy as mine! My other cat is a ginger tom called Bob and he and dizzy are brother and sister and completely different characters. Dizzy is definitely the loopy one and Bob just very laid back and male like. I think thats why I fancy a male dog for the dopyness factor (no intended insult to men intended). Whatever sex I have, I don't intend to et neutered/spayed as it can ruin the irish setter's coat, so bearing that in mind I think mabe a dog is easier to handle than a bitch perhaps. I am trying to research for as much info as poss.

You have plenty of time to research all about puppy care & socialisation. The sticky's in 1st time dog owners will have lots to help.

Thank you :) Yes Rowan seems to sound right for some reason. Thanks once again :) Here she is
Well that's my favorite as of now her temperment may not match what I'm looking for though. Lol! Don't worry I was looking for a male pup to add a little fun here it's too...female around here lol. I'm sure about the coat factor but I've heard and seen that male dogs are more laid back and in most cases more affectionate.

Arrh, she looks very adorable! I have too many males in my house so really should look for female. But hey I must be a sucker for men lol...
I even bought two puppy toys today as they were in the sale and I couldn't resist - I feel like I am planning for a new baby. I suspose i am but this time it is not a human one, haha.

Keep me posted x
