27.12.2007 Although the weather does not support making photos in the open air, we made some "christmas" memories. Click to photopage.
Annie 20 months
We also made some standing photos of Annie being 20 months old. Annie has grown into a lovely young lady already. Her coat is coming back nicely - we hope not to lose the coat after her season now))). And we hope to show her again in February 2008 at some dog shows. Annie's development can be followed here.
06.12.2007 We were supposed to go to the Finnish Winner 2007 dogshow for this coming weekend with Annie & Happy, but our tiny Annie started her season just a week ago. As we cannot travel with Happy and Annie together in these circumstances, we postponed all our trip to Helsinki. It is sad we cannot take part in this great show with the English setter entry of 32 dogs in total, but there is nothing to do. For the other entries: winning will be much more easier now - because my dogs are missing from the show))). This is my joke, of course!
Finnish Winner show was meant to be the last dog show for us at this year. But watch out: we will be by the dog show rings again during the next year!
22.11.2007 Some new photos added to the photopage.
12.11.2007 This passed weekend we spent in Riga. There was the International Dogshow "Baltic Winner2007" there. English setter entry: 19 and the judge for setters: Rui Oliveira (Portugal).
Here are the results: Happy: CH-class "excellent" 1/2, best male 1-st, CACIB, BOS, BALTW07 title; Annie: intermediate class "excellent" 1/2, best bitch 2-nd, res-CACIB.
BOB and BIG3 was Nattaset Special Feeling "Ines" - CONGRATULATIONS to the owners in kennel Nattaset: Jaana & Katja!
...and THANKS for the nice trip together!
P.S. The judge liked our dogs a lot))).

09.11.2007 I have applied for the kennel name from the FCI. And today I got the confirmation to the name of: SEASET kennel. It was the second choice which was confirmed (my first choice was: WHITESET).
I have been influenced by the SEA all of my life and now, as we live in the place which is almost surrounded by the sea, this name is dedicated to this powerful elemental force. SET means setters of course (this affix is included to many of the setter-kennel names).
03.11.2007 We were taking part in Tartu Int.Dogshow where the English setter entry was 9 and the judge for all setters was Mrs. Patsy Hollings (England). Our dogs received excellent remarks from the judge: Happy'sresult: CH-class "excellent", best male 2-nd, CACIB; Annie'sresult: intermediate class "excellent", best bitch 3-rd.
Although Annie's result ended with the last place at the best bitch competition, we are very proud of Happy's daughter Kessie, who was best bitch 1 with CACIB, CAC and BOS. CONGRATULATIONS to you, Laura!
Best male and BOB was a young dog Farthingale High Born "Hoyt", who has won several best of breed titles in a short time already. CONGRATULATIONS to the owners: Jaana (kennel Nattaset) & Minna, and to the breeders: Pernilla & Peter (kennel Farthingale).
The show itself was very well organised. The most important things were: we had the specialist judge and a lot of space for all the dogs.
28.10.2007 We were supposed to take part in field-trial test in Southern-Estonia this weekend with Annie and Happy, but the things went all very sadly... no-no-no nothing happened with us, but simply the bureaucracy in Estonia works too well and the field-trial test was canceled because the judge could not give her official judging documents or whatever to the Estonian Kennel Union. Anyway, this attempt proved once more that there is not possible to make any field-trial test here in Estonia at the moment and we will wait maybe after some years all the bureaucratic institutions will agree upon which way the field-trials should be organised.
We did not wish to stay at home for this nice autumn weekend and we drove a long way to Suure-Jaani to practice at the artificial field for gundogs. We also wanted to show our Annie to the owner of the place Kalev Võitla to get his opinion of Annie's instincts on birds. It was good to hear that in the opinion of Kalev Võitla Annie has the real instincts and with the hard work in training and obedience Annie probably can make the field-trial some day in the future. So, we drove back home with the pheasant in the cage in our car. Now we have also a pheasant living together with some quails in our garage - we can make the further practice here at our home.
Annie is very stubborn - the real English setter in her character - she wants to make all the things by her own mind - we do not know if we will have the knowledge and patience to train her for the real field-trial. But one thing is clear, one cannot expect the field-trial to be done at this early age with any of the setters, maybe when the dog is more mature: at three or four years of age.
20.10.2007 The day of National all-breed dogshow in Rakvere. The English setter entry is 9. The judge for English setters is Rune Fagerström (Finland). Annie gets a very remarkable description from the judge (the judge seems to value her quality a lot), but it is sufficient for 2/2 in intermediate class with "excellent" and later best bitch 3/4. You can read Annie's descriptions here.
BOB is a stunning Nattaset After That "Jill" who competes in veteran class bitches and later gets the BIS 1 veteran title in the finals! Congratulations to you Terhi and Jaana for that result!
18.10.2007 I would like to introduce a litter of Irish red setter puppies born in Hungary in Crawford kennel.
Click at the picture to look at the advertisement:
27.09.2007 We were making the HD/ED X-ray test for Annie. And she has healthy hips officially confirmed: A/B and also clean elbows: 0/0.
25.09.2007 It is a good feeling to be home again! This passed weekend we had the traditional autumn-journey to the beautiful island - Ahvenamaa (Aland) again. The aim of the journey was the Eckerö Int. Dogshow (22.-23.09.07) with the judge Paul Scanlon (Ireland) for setters and also for FCI group VII. This was the introducton to the happenings of the weekend, but now comes the main plot: Our Happy - Iron Man of Slow Fox won the Best in Group at Eckerö show! We received so many nice gifts among those some bread, honey, ham, cheese, apples, juice, chocolate etc.... All from Aland island and homemade! It was all so touching! And of course the nice rosettes!
Happy decided to run so well at the group competition, and this was the result of that Mr. Paul Scanlon put him to the 1-st place!
It is a bit sad that we could not stay until the BIS competition at Sunday - all because we "did not plan" winning and therefore we had the hotel booked and paid in Turku - we could not miss it!
Annie'sresult: junior class "excellent", best bitch 4, res-CAC - not bad either!
Here I would like to thank all the travel companions we had - it was so nice to be together again! Special thanks to you, Jaana, for arranging that trip!
11.09.2007 So, there are quails living in the cage in our garage again this autumn. We are trying to teach Annie how to behave on the field. Oh yes, Annie just loves it when we take off for the field! She can find any bird on the field without any problems. The problems arise when there are more birds on the field than we expect: yesterday evening she simply decided to run away chasing the flock of other wild birds. Yes, we were lucky - she came back after some ten minutes to the same place she left us. We really have to think something up how to tame Annie's enormous energy towards birds, how to keep her concentrated on work - a difficult job to do))). It is a pity we do not have any specialist here in Estonia whom to ask for advice!
05.09.2007 Annie has been showing out very keen sense on setting for birds. Sometimes she can "hunt" for hours. There were lots of birds in our garden in spring, but they disappeared for the summer. Now they are back again and we even managed to take some photos of Annie setting for the small wagtails in our garden today. Here is the photo session! We are sad that we do not have better camera (perhaps video camera) to shoot all the details))).
In spite of all the difficulties to teach setters for the field-trial here in Estonia (not even speaking about making the field-trial test), we still hope we can find some training possibilities for our Annie at some time in the future!
01.09.2007 We were spending a day at Lagedi all-breed national dogshow. The English setter entry: 4 and the judge: Ricky Lochs-Romans (Netherlands). Although Annie got a very nice description, she was left 2-nd in junior bitches.
BOB was young and perspective male: Farthingale High Born "Hoyt"; BOS was winner in junior bitches Nattaset Marigold "Leona". Congratulations to Kickie and Jaana for the excellent results!
27.08.2007 We took some new photos of 16 months old Annie today. You can follow all her development at her photopage.
Annie 16 months
Annie 16 months
26.08.2007 Fortunaviola Dilan Pikkolo "Willy" attended the Pihkva International Dogshow in Russia receiving excellent results of Best male 1, BOB, CAC, CACIB. The judge for setters was Lydia Sokolova (Russia).
CONGRATULATIONS to Relika for this nice result!
26.08.2007 The puppies of our Batman and a lovely Swedish lady Rockstro High Fidelity "Mel" are growing fast. Soon it will be a time to leave to the new owners. Here you will find the photos of 6 weeks old puppies.
Take also a look at the whole homepage of Farthingale kennel.
25.08.2007 We traveled from the most northern top to the almost south-eastern top of Estonia to take part in Väimela national all-breed dogshow. The English setter entry at the show: 6. The judge for setters was Ms. Inga Siil (Estonia).
The show was really a success for our tiny Annie:
junior class "excellent", BOBjun, best bitch 1, BOB, BIG3.
Here we wish to thank the judge Ms. Inga Siil for appreciating our sweet girl Annie so highly!
18.08.2007 Today there was an International Dogshow in Tallinn. The English setters entered: 5 and the judge was Boris Baic (Slovenia).
From my dogs only Annie was entered. This time Annie pulled herself together and behaved well))).
Annie's result: junior class "excellent", BOB junior, Best bitch 1, BOS.
The judge obviously gave his preference to the American type of the breed.
We did not stay for the final competition of Best in Show for juniors.
17.08.2007 We spent some days in Sweden - just a short vacation without dogs. Thank you Pernilla and Peter for all your hospitality!!! I hope to put the photos to the album soon!
05.08.2007 We just arrived from Palanga, Lithuania to attend 2 x CACIB all-breed dogshows there. "The weather-man" was not so generous this time as it was raining at Friday, but kept clear for Saturday - we were lucky!
Results 3-rd of August, Friday:
English setter entry: 7; judge: Peter F.Berchtold (Austria).
Annie: junior class "excellent", JWinner, JCAC, Best bitch 1;
Happy: CH-class "excellent", res-CACIB, Best male 2.
Results 4-th of August, Saturday:
English setter entry: 9; judge: Istvan Nagy (Hungary).
Annie: junior class "excellent", JWinner, JCAC, Best bitch 1;
Happy: CH-class "excellent", res-CACIB, Best male 2.
The both judges liked Annie very much saying so many nice words about her. The fiasco was at Saturday when Annie was supposed to run in the BOB competition show-ring with the best male winning dog Valentino Rudolf Magenta from Poland - and... Annie refused to run in a polite manner: she jumped and tried to play, tried to spoil also Rudolf's run in the show-ring ( so sorry for that Dorota!).
I was just amazed how Annie changed just within a minute after showing very good manners in the show-ring. Mr. Istvan Nagy was so patient, he asked me to try to make Annie run properly - but I couldn't help it - Annie only jumped and was very naughty. Then Istvan Nagy told us that he wanted to put Annie BOB so much, but now as Annie is still a puppy and playing, he has to put the male dog BOB.
That is how we lost BOB-title this time! But of course Annie has the potential to grow up at some time in the future, hasn't she?! //We are not sad about the results at both days at all.//
We can apply for the LTJCH and BALTJCH title for Annie now.
I also want to THANK Marek and Tiina and their children for the nice companionship and the lovely trip together to Neringa island and Liepaja sandy beaches! We had a great time together!
Nattaset May Blob "Morris" was best junior male getting also Junior Winner title at both days and now will also be LTJCH! CONGRATULATIONS to Marek, Tiina and the breeder Jaana!

Dear Max, This is your birthday. 8 years is a very significant birthday already!
29.07.2007 At Vantaa, Finland, there was an all-breed National Dogshow with the English setter entry of 21. The judge for the setters was Mrs. Hilda Parkinson (England). Of course we were there too - as we do not want to miss the opportunity to show our dogs to the judge who knows the breed well!
This time we had Annie and Batman with us. The last shows have been somehow very successful for our dogs))))).
Batman: excellent, Best male 1, BOS;
Annie: excellent, junior class 1/5, Res-CAC.
P.S. Annie competed in junior class with the entry of 5 high quality young bitches. And the judge put her 1-st! We are really proud of this result!
BOB was our Batman's sister Nattaset Blue Catwoman. CONGRATULATIONS Katja & Jaana (kennel Nattaset)!
Thank you Jaana for your hospitality!
Thank you for the photos Kickie!
22.07.2007 This was the day of Estonian Setter Club Special Show. English setters entered 46; the judge for English setters was Mr. Gordon Williams (England). The results got even better than yesterday! Happy was Best male 1, BOB and BIS1! What a day for us! Batman was 3-rd in working class.
This time Happy's sister Ice Cream "Honey" of Slow Fox was BOS!
CONGRATULATIONS to you, Ildikó & Laszló, (kennel Slow Fox) for all the success! And thank you so much for giving me this lovely boy I have! We received a lot of congratulations! The judges said so many nice words about Happy that I simply have to think it over now))). This day will really be remembered by us!!!
Thank you Penny & Gordon for appreciating my sweetheart Happy so highly!
21.07.2007 We spent a lovely and sunny day at Haapsalu all-breed National Dogshow. English setters were entered 30, the judge for English setters was Mrs. Penny Williams (England). Happy gained the Best male 1 and BOS title! BOB was Happy's sister Ice Cream "Honey" of Slow Fox. Batman's result: Working class "excellent" 2.
19.07.2007 We just got the information from Linda Taylor (kennel Wansleydale) that Annie's father Wansleydale Witch Doctor "Danny" has gained the title of GB ShCH. We are very proud of daddy "Danny"! For sure this success will continue! Congratulations!
14.07.2007 Our Annie was BIG1 at Viljandi all-breed National Dogshow!
But I start from the very beginning:
We vistited the dogshow in Viljandi with Annie. The entry of English setters was 5. The judge for setters was: G.J.W.de Vries-Hoogland (Holland). Annie's result:
Excellent, BOBjun, BOB, BIG1.
We are very-very proud of our precious darling! To be honest I still cannot believe this, because Annie is only 15 months old and not yet entirely developed. We hope and keep the fingers crossed that this result will be repeated in the future, but we really try to take it step-by-step!
And when I think of Annie's behavior in the showring: she is quite a "devil" to be handled - sometimes she has hundred things to do at the same time, it is hard to get her settled.
Here I would like to thank my daughter Anne-Stiina who has trained Annie to run in the showring so well!
It was just a laughing point, when she was on the BIG1 podium for the first time in her life - we have not trained her for that)))) - she sat there, her back towards the photographers and tried to cuddle us who were behind that podium - so sorry, the photographers probably did not get any photo from the first side of her)))).
When we walked away from the stadium after the event was over, Annie stopped by the small willow-bushes which were at the side of the path - and she was so willing to run into the bushes to "catch" some birds from there - everybody has her own hobbies, I should say... so much about this day with nice weather in Viljandi!

10.07.2007 This is the day when our Batman became a father of 7 puppies (3 dogs + 4 bitches). The mother of the puppies is a very nice English lady from England: Rockstro High Fidelity "Mel". You can get more information about this litter from the Farthingale kennel homepage.
And... although Batman himself does not show much of the emotions about his newborn children (he is well-mannered boy and quite a modest one...). - We, humans, are very-very happy for the result!
We all are wishing these seven tiny newcomers the best for the future!
07.07.2007 We were spending a day at Luige all-breed National Dogshow where the English setter entry was only 2! The judge for all the setters was Mr. Jim Crosbie (Ireland) - it is of course a pity that so few setter owners wished to show their dogs to Jim Crosbie! Annie's result:
excellent, BOBjun, BOB, BIG3. There were only 3 dogs competing in the group 7 and we managed to get the 3-rd (the last) place - but this does not spoil our happiness!
Today Annie finished her Estonian Junior Championship and can apply also for the Latvian Junior Champion title!

04.07.2007 I received the news from Anita (Van de Trendsetters) that Fortunaviola Deppi Ibis "Finn"(Nattaset Special Moment x Iron Man of Slow Fox) has been doing very well at the shows in Holland and Luxemburg. He has been BOS in Almere, Goes and Echt shows. He only needs some more points to become LUX and NL CH! He is also qualified for Crufts show in 2008!
WOW! This is really some news! CONGRATULATIONS Anita! We are so much keeping our fingers crossed for this White Boy!!!! (I hope to get also some recent photos of Finn.)
23.06.2007 Some new photos of 14 months old Annie are added to her photoalbum.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY - 4 years!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY DEAR BATMAN - you are now 6 years old!
14.06.2007 The things are going even better here: I just got the news from Farthingale kennel that Rockstro High Fidelity "Mel" has been ultrascanned today and the vet saw many tiny puppies! So, it is for sure that our Batman will be a father. The puppies will be born in the middle of July.
Congratulations Pernilla and Peter!
Congratulations Jaana (Nattaset kennel) and thank you once more for taking care of all the mating-procedures)))) in Finland! That is really the loveliest news of all times!)))))

12.06.2007 Today we arrived from Zagreb, Croatia, safe and sound. It was a hard trip because of the terribly warm weather in all the countries we passed during our journey. Our aim was to take part in the "European Winner 2007" title dogshow with Happy and Annie. English setters were entered 27, the judge was Mr. Istvan Nagy (Hungary).
Although the judge clearly preferred the american type of the breed, both our dogs got excellent results: Happy: working class excellent 2/3, res-CAC, res-CACIB, Best male 2-nd; Annie received even better result: junior class excellent 1/4, Jun-CAC, BOB-jun, CRjCH, "EU JunWinner 2007" title.
We are really very-very proud of our dogs!
Here I would like to thank my husband Andrus, who is always there beside me at the dogshows - encouraging and helping!
02.06.2007 Today was the day of International Show "EST Winner 2007". The entry of English setters was 16 and the judge for setters: Mrs. Tiina Illukka (Finland).
In spite of the fact that the showring number for us was 13 and it sounded quite awsome, it was a super day for us! Annie's result: excellent, jun.class 1/3, JunCAC, EST JW 2007, best bitch 2-nd (total of 8 bitches entered). And Tiina Illukka did not write a single negative word to the description-list.
19.05.2007 We were spending nice and sunny day in Riga, Latvia, at International Dogshow. The judge for setters was Mrs. Ligita Zake (Latvia), English setters entered: 12.
Our little Annie was the only English type representative at English setter breed... but... the judge liked her a lot and she was placed 1-st in junior class bitches (3 junior bitches entered). So, the exact results of Annie were: excellent, jun.class 1/3, JunCAC, best bitch 3-rd, Promotion Prize.
15.05.2007 While other setters are dealing with bird hunting, our Max (7,5 years old) seems to enjoy the retirement between the sofa-pillows:
Besides, I have added some new photos of Annie , also two photos from our garden in spring - look here. All the photos are made by Anne-Stiina.
12.05.2007 NB! I would like to recommend the Irish setter puppies born on 26.03.07 in the Irish Melody kennel. There is 1 dog puppy and 1 bitch puppy left. Both are very perspective. The bitch puppy will be given away only in co-ownership. The puppies are ready to leave for new homes. Mother of puppies is: Int & EST & LV & LT & Balt CH Irish Melody Sunday Morning. Father of puppies is: Sumaric Shadow of Mr. Jingles (Imp. from UK).
In any interest please contact me or directly Kaja Koger (tel. +372 53 30 53 40; e-mail: email@example.com).
21.04.2007 We spent a lovely day at Sillamäe National All-breed Dogshow, where there were 3 English setters entered. The judge for all setters was Jaroslav Matyas (Slovakia). This time Annie behaved very well, ran lively and nicely in the show-ring getting
excellent 1, junCAC, BOBjun and BOB.
This was Annie's first junCAC to receive! (Unfortunately we did not stay until the final group competitions at Sillamäe).
BOS was Nattaset May Blob "Morris", who got his 3-rd junCAC and now Morris is ESTJ CH!
CONGRATULATIONS to Marek and Tiina and to breeder Jaana (Nattaset kennel).

10.04.2007 Some nice spring feelings by Anne-Stiina are HERE!
07.04.2007 We took part in the unofficial Nublu Puppy Show in Tallinn. English setters entered in different age-groups: 3. The judge for all setters was Wesley McCrum (Ireland). Although Annie's behaviour at the showring was not so good (I had quite a trouble to get her settled), she received excellent and was BOB junior with the very positive description.
03.04.2007 Finally I have made the photo-gallery from our trip to Birmingham, England: LOOK HERE!
03.04.2007 I did not update my homepage at once, but... my Happy's children have been doing very well between my last update here:

19.03.2007 We had a lovely weekend full of English setters again. We had visitors from Finland: Jaana with Nattaset Marigold "Oona" and Nattaset Moonflower "Nekku". Yesterday we spent a day at the Latvian Winner 2007 dogshow. The judge for setters was Damir Skok (Croatia) and the number of English setters entered for him was 12.
Happy received: CH class excellent 1/2, res-CACIB, Best male 3.
Annie's result was not bad either: Jun. class excellent 2/3, Honour prize.
Judge Damir Skok surprized us with treating all the dogs so well, he was so gentle with every dog and cuddled them all! It was very touching to see that kind of judging at international dogshow after some not quite good experiences!
CONGRATULATIONS to Jaana (Nattaset) for Oona's(Nattaset Marigold) BOS, JunCAC and Latvian Winner 2007 title!
And THANK YOU for the nice weekend together here!
16.03.2007 Some new photos are in Annie's photoalbum. Look HERE.

24.02.2007 At the day of the birthday of our country, 24-th of February, we took a walk at the seaside. Look HERE at the pictures we caught with the camera.
18.02.2007 We took part in the Kymen Setterit & Pointterit Ry Open Show which was held in Lahti, Finland. The number of English setters entered: 28. The judge was Sissi Sundberg (Kennel Gentlemen by Nature, Sweden). Batman was in a good shape to receive open class excellent 1/2, Best male 1, BOS.
Our little Annie got the grade "very good" with quite a hard critizism by description, although was later placed 4-th among total of 7 junior bitches.
But... we had a very nice weekend! THANK YOU!, Jaana, for all the hospitality! Congratulations to Katja V. for Nattaset Special Feeling "Ines" getting BOB!
More information on Nattaset Kennel homepage HERE! and KSP club homepage HERE!.
11.02.2007 Yesterday was the day of the International Dogshow in Tallinn. English setters entered 8. Judge for setters: Stelios Makaritis (Greece).
Annie - Jun class excellent 2/3;
Happy - CH class excellent 1; Best male 2; Res-CACIB.
07.02.2007 Photos of the Estonian Setter Club show can be found at Nattaset Kennel homepage HERE! The photos are made by Kickie Boman.
04.02.2007 Yesterday we were taking part in Estonian Setter Club clubshow. The judge was Ms. Kickie Boman (Aland). English setters entered: 19.
I am so glad to report the results of my dogs: Batman - Open class excl.1/2, Best male 1, BOB, BIS2;
Happy - CH-class excl.1, Best male 3-rd;
Annie - Junior class excl.3/4. I would also wish to congratulate the breeder Jaana (Nattaset) and Katja H. for the result of Nattaset Arctic Bramble "Venla" being BOS!
While we were having fun at the clubshow, our sweetheart Max (7 years old!) had to be home alone for some hours. He must have felt so very lonely being alone, so he probably thought he should have a party too. And he ate about 1 kilogram of fresh moose meat, which I left to melt in the kitchen wash-basin (although the meat was vacuum-packed into the plastic-bag, he managed to open it). After eating most of the meat, he hid the rest of it (about 200 grams) under the sofa cushion. - No-no! - we did not sit on the fresh meat to watch TV in the evening - our Annie had the good nose to sniff it out and found the "game"...
Here I can give the moral from this happening:
English setter can be the puppy from his heart even being grown-up already! Never leave anything to the reach of any English setter! And last but not least:
Today, Sunday - the 04-th of February, we are only dreaming of having nice Sunday dinner from the moose meat baked in the oven!
30.01.2007 Photo of Annie 9,5 months old:
05.01.2007 Some fresh photos of 8,5 months old Annie are in her photoalbum.
