Saoirse (Gaelic for Freedom) is very special to me. She is my fifth generation, and is linebred to my darling Caoimhe (Irish Ch Garbank Caoimhe for Scarholme J.W.)
Saoirse has qualified for Crufts 2012 and has made a very promising start to her gundog training.
I absolutely adore her.
Saoirse at 6 months
**SAD NEWS** July 2011 Saoirse had a minor accident, slipping on tiles as she ran outdoors but with a devastating result. A tiny avulsion fracture of the medial condyle of her tibia has resulted in what is likely to be a permanent unsoundness in her movement.
At the time of writing (January 2012) we know that she will not be attending Crufts, and she missed her first season picking up. However, she has resumed normal exercise and although her show career is almost certainly over, she will be fit to work next year. I think, if she was given the choice, this would be her preference!
However, between now and then we hope to have her first litter, by Sh Ch Chlodyl Rodney J.W.
