   Leave a bone for Tatianna (In Loving Memory)

Tat, Tatters, Pattate Frite, Sweet Ladygirl, Circus Dog, Miss Wigglebutt

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:

August 10th 1996

Cats, small dogs, and puppies. Stalking and chasing squirrels up trees (though I'd never hurt them). Playing ball at the dog park!

Being left at home when mom goes out. When she's at the dog park, and you've forgotten to bring a ball (*d'oh!*).

Favorite Toy:
Beaten up tennis ball, raw hides, old cow hoof

Favorite Food:
Chicken skin, chicken soup, yogurt, peanut butter. She finds the taste of hand lotion irresistable. :-P

Favorite Walk:
Stalking squirrels on the way to the dog park.

Best Tricks:
Walking backwards around the perimeter of the dog park. Catching a ball in the air. Tap dancing her way into your heart. :)

Arrival Story:
Given to our family at the age of 2.5 years, because the breeder (in Ontario) just wanted to give Tatianna a good home. Tat was the Gamma female at the breeder's kennel, and lacked self-confidence. She had never lived in a house before, and behaved like a shy puppy for the first year in her new home. Now she is a lot more extroverted, and tells dominant dogs off at the dog park when they get too fresh with her. (You go girl!)

My family's dog, "Tatianna", is a sweet-natured Irish setter with a heart of gold. She normally lives with my mom, but during the summer of 2004, Tatianna split her time between staying with my father, my older brother, and I. Some of these photos were taken (July 7, 2004) in the family business, where Tatianna worked as "Head of Interspecies Relations." She drew a salary of dog biscuits, btw. :-P Tatianna had a close brush with death, but with emergency life-saving surgery on New Year's Eve (Dec.31, 2004), she made it through with flying colours. She's my little miracle pup! Just one look at her smiling mug is sure to make you smile! ********************************** ************ We had to put our Irish Setter, Tatianna, to sleep at her home on Oct.15,2010. She had terminal cancer (hemangiosarcoma)in her spleen. She is dearly missed.

R.I.P. Tatianna [Aug. 10, 1996 - Oct. 15, 2010]

Today is the 3rd anniversary of the passing of my Irish Setter, Tatianna. :'-(

Treasured pets stay with you, in mind and spirit, long after they're laid to rest. ♥

Tatianna was given to us by her breeder with her name; she was already 2 1/2 years old. Tatianna was as pretty as her name. She had the most beautiful personality and missed her "humans" whenever she was apart from us. She would wag her tail so fast that her butt would wiggle. As she approached her human, she would then cry and collapse at their feet to show her belly. Tatianna was a very special dog, and she is sorely missed.

20. Can't stick their heads out of Windows '95.
19. Fetch command not available on all platforms.
18. Hard to read the monitor with your head cocked to one side.
17. Too difficult to "mark" every website they visit.
16. Can't help attacking the screen when they hear "You've Got Mail."
15. Fire hydrant icon simply frustrating.
14. Involuntary tail wagging is dead giveaway they're browsing www.pethouse.com instead of working.
13. Keep bruising noses trying to catch that MPEG frisbee.
12. Not at all fooled by Chuckwagon Screen Saver.
11. Still trying to come up with an "emoticon" that signifies tail-wagging.
10. Oh, but they WILL... with the introduction of the Microsoft Opposable Thumb.
9. Three words: Carpal Paw Syndrome
8. 'Cause dogs ain't GEEKS! Now, cats, on the other hand...
7. Barking in next cubical keeps activating YOUR voice recognition software.
6. SmellU-SmellMe(tm) still in beta test.
5. SIT and STAY were hard enough, GREP and AWK are out of the question!
4. Saliva-coated mouse gets mighty difficult to maneuver.
3. Annoyed by lack of newsgroup, alt.pictures.master's.leg.
2. Butt-sniffing more direct and less deceiving than online chat rooms.

Greetings my furry friends!

!! Welcome to “Luck of the Irish” – Irish Setter Admiration Society !!

:==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: : :==: :==: :==: :==: :==: :==:

If your human is lucky enough to have an Irish Setter, they know the joy of living every moment to its fullest, and the beauty of the world through our eyes. I started this group because I wanted to find other Setters...it seems they are a rare breed in Canada.

Irish Setters, Irish Red & White Setters, and even Irish Setter mixes are more than welcome to join "Luck of the Irish"! And humans who are mourning the loss of an Irish Setter are encourage to reminisce (or send Tatianna or Bobby a Dogster message if you prefer).

Even if you’re another breed of dog, and you're interested in learning about Irish Setters...that's just great too. Feel free to start a new thread, or pose a Setter related question to the group. So go ahead and invite your friends.

So many friendly new faces...over 50 members are in our cozy little kennel. Make yourself right at home...there's plenty of biscuits and rawhides for everyone! :-)

Many licks,
