Irish Setter Sighting…

November 1st, 2020 by Gail

 

 

COVID interrupted the dog sports year early, however, one of the last Victorian dog events in 2020 was held in March – a Championship Show at Warragul & District Kennel & Obedience Club Inc. (at Darnum, rural Gippsland).

Kudos to the Club for commissioning local artist Sue Osborn (www.facebook.com/SueOsbornArtwork) to create a number of artworks of the Club’s  “high achieving” local dogs (and the Presidents’ poodle…) and having them displayed on the Clubrooms in time for the event.

 

 

What a wonderful idea as a trophy! … and John Pallôt’s own Irish setter, Ruby, Dual Ch. (T) Brodruggan Maple Doll TSD is featured  … for her exemplary work in obedience and tracking. 

 

 

 

Congratulations John, for flying the flag for Irish setters – and for your Club regarding your achievements so highly.

LAMENT OF A LADY WHO HAS GONE TO THE DOGS

September 21st, 2020 by Gail

 


 

 

 

LAMENT OF A LADY WHO HAS GONE TO THE DOGS

 

There was a time, there really was, when I was young and tender,
When show dog meant a Disney Star and bitch was not a gender.
I went to bed at half-past ten – I went to Church on Sunday,
On Saturday I baked the beans and did the wash on Monday.

But when I got a certain pup, an erstwhile friend said “Show”,
And so I did and so I do… Oh, what I don’t know!
Once I dressed for flair and style – that was the life don’t knock it,
Now every dress from bad to ball must have a good bait pocket.

I used to have a certain air, I wafted in perfume,
I used to smell like Nuit D’Amour – not I smell like Mr Groom.
My furniture was Haute decor, my pets – a tank of guppies,
Now I’ve furniture – unstuffed – and well-adjusted puppies.

I used to long for furs and jewels and a figure classed as super,
But now the thing I yearn for most is a nice new Pooper Scooper!
I was taught to be well groomed, no matter where I went,
Now all the grooming that I do is in the handler’s tent.

While once I spoke in dulcet tones, in pristine prose and frail
I now am using language that would turn a sailor pale.
I adored a man who murmured verse through intimate little dinners,
But now the words I thrill to hear are just three:- Best of Winners

I rise at dawn and pack the car, the road it is a long one,
The one I routed on the map is invariably the wrong one.
I really love my doggy life – I wouldn’t care to change it,
But when I get that BEST IN SHOW – I could maybe rearrange it.

And when my days on earth are gone I’ll go without much nudging,
Just give me three weeks closing date – and let me know who’s judging!

ODE TO BEAU

September 9th, 2020 by Gail

 

I’ll Never Forget a Dog Named Beau

 He never came to me when I would call
Unless I had a tennis ball,
Or he felt like it,
But mostly he didn’t come at all.

When he was young
He never learned to heel
Or sit or stay,
He did things his way.

Discipline was not his bag
But when you were with him things sure didn’t drag.
He’d dig up a rosebush just to spite me,
And when I’d grab him, he’d turn and bite me.

He bit lots of folks from day to day,
The delivery boy was his favorite prey.
The gas man wouldn’t read our meter,
He said we owned a real man-eater.

He set the house on fire
But the story’s long to tell.
Suffice it to say that he survived
And the house survived as well.

On the evening walks, and Gloria took him,
He was always first out the door.
The Old One and I brought up the rear
Because our bones were sore.

He would charge up the street with Mom hanging on,
What a beautiful pair they were!
And if it was still light and the tourists were out,
They created a bit of a stir.

But every once in a while, he would stop in his tracks
And with a frown on his face look around.
It was just to make sure that the Old One was there
And would follow him where he was bound.

We are early-to-bedders at our house-
I guess I’m the first to retire.
And as I’d leave the room he’d look at me
And get up from his place by the fire.

He knew where the tennis balls were upstairs,
And I’d give him one for a while.
He would push it under the bed with his nose
And I’d fish it out with a smile.

And before very long
He’d tire of the ball
And be asleep in his corner
In no time at all.

And there were nights when I’d feel him
Climb upon our bed
And lie between us,
And I’d pat his head.

And there were nights when I’d feel this stare
And I’d wake up and he’d be sitting there
And I reach out my hand and stroke his hair.
And sometimes I’d feel him sigh
and I think I know the reason why.

He would wake up at night
And he would have this fear
Of the dark, of life, of lots of things,
And he’d be glad to have me near.

And now he’s dead.
And there are nights when I think I feel him
Climb upon our bed and lie between us,
And I pat his head.

And there are nights when I think
I feel that stare
And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair,
But he’s not there.

Oh, how I wish that wasn’t so,
I’ll always love a dog named Beau.

(Jimmy Stewart)
