2007 National Specialty


2007 English Setter Association of America National Specialty

High In Trial at the 2007 National Conner, Setír Ridgeís Black Gold (Hadji x Teakoa). Conner won HIT with a score of 197 from the Novice B class. This finished his Companion Dog Title with three straight passes with scores of 197 Ĺ , 196 and a 197, to earn him a Dog World Award, which you can only achieve with three straight passes and scores above a 195 out of 200. He is an incredible dog to watch. His healing is so correct and he is beautiful too.
Also at the 2007 National Cody, Ch Setír Ridgeís Northern Lights CDX finished his Companion Dog Excellent title with a 194 Ĺ out of 200. Jordan, Ch Setír Ridgeís Deep Impact UD JH received a score of 190 in the Utility Dog Obedience class.
The next day at the supporting Specialty, Conner won High In Trial again with a score of 197 Ĺ out of 200. Cody received a score in Open of 196 and Jordan won a High Combined Score with a 195 in Open and a 191 in Utility. This is very difficult to do as he canít make a major error in any exercise in two different classes. Jordan also won High scoring Champion of record with a score of 198 and first place from the Veterans Obedience class. These three dogs are expertly trained, handled, owned and loved by Rose Miller, they are co-owned and bred by Melissa D Newman.
Sahara wins an Award of Merit at both the 2007 National Specialty. An amazing feat after almost losing her in July. She had what we think was a foxtail up her vulva that caused severe bleeding and two hematomaís and an abscess. Seven vets, two specialists, five ultra sounds, two transervical scopes, four xrays and an MRI,not one vet new what to do. She was scheduled for surgery at 5:00PM, to have her pelvis split open to see what was happening that was causing the abscess and bleeding. We put her on a prayer chain and people all around the world were praying for her. At 3:00 PM an MRI was performed and she had been miraculously healed. The abscess was gone,the two hematomas were gone. The infected fluid was gone, her bladder was back to the normal spot, it was pushed all of the way up to her rib cage, due to fluid in the vulva. She was completely and miraculously healed. Sahara jumps back and forth between Field Trialing and an occasional dog show. Sahara won two placements at the Weimaraner trial just a few weeks before competing at the National.

I would like to post all of the other wins and stats on our dogs that we bred, or were sired by one of our dogs. If everyone would send me the stats on their dog for this year within a week , that would be great. My computer crashed and I lost what I had.

I am using and recommending that every dog is given NuVet Plus. With so many dogs of all breeds dieing of cancer, heart problems, and other diseases, we must do something to stop the cycle. We are living in a scary age when people of all ages and are getting cancer, or other ailments, are dogs are too. We and they are being exposed to hormone enhancers in chicken, beef and dairy products. We are also being exposes and consuming many preservatives that are affecting our health. We must do something about this now, before it is too late. We can give our dogs this NuVet antioxidant daily to our dogs to free our dogs of the chemicals, toxins, and hormones that they are being exposed to. I highly recommend this product. It is easy to order and it will be shipped immediately.

More than a million dogs and cats are using NuVet to protect against most ailments (from back yard pesticides, pet food allergies and hormones, toxic formaldehyde in furniture and carpeting, ailments transmitted from dog parks and the vetís office, etc), while maintaining a beautiful skin and coat.

This is not a vitamin. Itís an immune system builder with a precise balance of vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, amino acids and high-potency antioxidants. Thatís why it works so well through all three stages of a dogís life.

For younger dogs (under 2 years old), it strengthens their immune system, while building and strengthening the cardiovascular, skeletal and nerve systems.

For dogs in their prime (age 2-8), it improves the luster of their skin and coat while protecting against allergies, skin and coat problems, staining from tears, digestive problems, etc.

For older dogs (over 8 years old), it helps reduce and eliminate arthritis, tumors, premature aging, cataracts, heart conditions, diabetes and many types of cancer, while extending the life and improving the vitality of many dogs.

We highly recommend NuVet Plus to keep your pet on the path to perfect health! Itís not available in stores, and is only available to the general public with an order code from an authorized pet professional.

For your convenience, you may order directly from the manufacturer (at up to 50% off what most veterinarians charge) by calling 800-474-7044 and using Order Code: 48718.
To the long life and health of your puppy or dog.

We also have frozen sperm available for several of our stud dogs. Look at the stud dog section of our web site.
