In Memoriam

Milesian Sweet Irish Dreams, Max
7/16/02  -  5/22/14

My heart is broken.  My buddy, my best friend, my companion, MY HEART DOG is gone!
Max went to the rainbow bridge on Thursday, May 22, 2014.
Max was my first Irish Setter and show dog.  He taught me so many things over the years,
most importantly how to love unconditionally with my whole heart!
He bought me into this world of red setters and through him I made lifelong friends.
I know that many redheads were there to greet you at the bridge buddy and that you are running
free without pain.  Till we meet again sweetheart,
May the shamrocks fall softly upon your sweet face . . .

Shamrock Border



Without a doubt the best dogs are those available directly from quality breeders, which carry an AKC registration.  Please – do not buy a puppy from someone’s backyard, a parking lot, or a pet store.  Even though they may be ‘Registered’, there’s a 99% probability that they will have a major health issue, which may result in discomfort for the dog, expensive veterinary bills, and disappointment for you and your family.  You will not pay more in the long run for a puppy from a quality breeder.

The breeders who you will be referred to by the ISCM Breeders Referral Committee are all known to us, and have track records of producing quality animals.
