I have just added their photos to the web site, www.englishsetter.com Litters , Alex / Troika, Photos.

It is with Great sadness that I tell you that Tissa has passed away. She was a wonderful setter, producer and example of our breed, but most important, she was an awesome pet. She was Micahís dog. They are both twelve. They played together daily as they were growing. When they were ten months old, Micah would hang on to Tissa or Zabri and pull herself to her feet and balance with her and start to walk. They absolutely loved each other. Tissa had a wonderful temperament to the day she passed. She was wonderful with all dogs, puppies and people. She passed her great temperament on to her kids. She leaves behind her a great legacy, and a huge hole in our hearts. I thank the Lord for allowing us to have such an awesome Friend. I also thank Kay Monaghan for breeding Tissa and entrusting us with her.
