Golden Retrievers or Irish Setters, I can't make up my mind from the pictures?

I just sold the last from a litter for which Roy and Cora(German Shorthairs) get the credit. I'm getting too old for the selling pups part. Too sentimental and want to keep them all. I cried when the last one left. I wish you luck in that regard!

They will be oh so cute by the time they are ready to go and each will have his/her own personality.

Watching momma shift all of her attention to taking care of the pups is amazing in itself. Nothing more selfless than what a good mother dog shows towards her pups!

Legally they are Irish Setter's but I hate to admit that. These are the Amer Fld version and most of those that have them call them Red Setter's. Goes back to about 1950-52. Guy's fed up with the AKC Irish Setter show dog found the best female they could and crossed it with a son of 1946 Nat Ch Mississippi Zev, an E. Setter. Compiled record's and approached Amer Fld and AKC to reg them. Both agreed and soon after that the AKC Irish Setter Culb threw a fit about it. They found out in short order there would never be another Dual Ch Irish Setter! Today to reg in AKC you need to have DNA testing done, only breed in America like that. Bottom line is the only thing the Red Setter and Irish Setter have in common is the color of their hair.

Today's Red Setter is much like the Irish Setter as first imported. Awesome in the field! The AKC Irish setter just can't stay with them. This picture of my Stormy is when he was about 5 yrs old and he's never had a hair cut. Weight's 45# in hunting shape!

It seems that every breed of dog that was ever imported gets screwed during line breeding, breeding to faulty dogs and improper paperwork. It is so easy to fake blood work and shuffle records with the AKC that I have for the most part gone away from them. My son and I have two breeds, the Deutsch Drahthaar and German Shorthaired Pointer. The Drahthaar paperwork is all in German and interpretation paperwork comes with all of the registration forms. They look like a German Wirehaired pointer minus the tainted bloodlines that come from faked paperwork that goes to the AKC. My male German Shorthair is 80# and is of the German Moesgaard lineage and my female is 65 lbs and of the Deutsch Kurzhaar lineage. Registration for Kurzhaars is also in German and all paperwork goes to Germany. By breeding the two together they had to be registered through the AKC. AKC will gladly register any Drahthaar or Kurzhaar but they register them as ordinary German Wirehaired and German Shorthaired Pointers. If you do that you have insulted the Kurzhaar and Drahthaar clubs and will be rightfully excommunicated from those clubs. My Kurzhaars mother's owner had already crossed that line so I was guilty of nothing.....but got some very good pups out of that litter.

My son just bought a new Male Drahthaar from SD and paid 2 grand for him. I can already tell that he is going to be worth every penny.

I have only ever hunted with a "Red"(and his name was Red) one time and that was about this time of year last year at Brownells pheasant preserve. He was a stellar performer and had lots of style! I like him a lot! He came from Kansas I believe. Sometimes when bloodline start getting tainted starting over like they did with the Reds is the way to go!

Thanks for those pictures! Nothing cuter than puppies.

I'm afraid I'd have to keep all of them!
