She's also a little MONKEY!!!
God Bless this little English Setter who in her precious little way, has helped me move on after my last dog's untimely death. She is my constant companion, and is the best playmate and training buddy for our Pointer, Wes.
Thelmalou is an American Field or FDSB English Setter. She starting pointing Mourning Doves
as soon as I got her at 9 weeks.
As soon as her vaccinations were complete, Thelmalou joined Wes and I on some of our pet-sitting visits. Niveus was especially fond of the baby Setter.
Socialization is very important for young dogs.
Santa's little helper...
Lou-hu was in love with Indiana-cat when she first came home. She was smaller than him for a while. She still stalks him and if he sneaks out she is the first one to alert me when he wants to come back in.
The Agile Setter
Thelmalou is an intense little bird dog. She runs like a missile and is quite stylish on point. We have learned a lot together while training and field trialing.
MissThelmalou made her Field Trial debut in February of 2000. She was eight months old and ran in Puppy and Derby. She's had placements in the AKC as well as The American Field.
Third place in Puppy- with 3 pheasant finds.
