Captiva’s A Paige of Erinshire

Paige arrived at Erinshire March 24, 2019  from Captiva Irish Setter s, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada.  When I went up to Captiva, I had planned on bringing back a different female, I had my pick of 3 females available, and  I had decided on a female with the pedigree  I was looking for, but thats an other story.  With  mentors like Jill Taylor  that have the knowledge and experience in breeding can be so valuable.  She insisted I consider at least to look at the 2 other females that she was hoping for show homes, so I did.  As soon as Paige was on the grooming table and Jill put her in a stack, I was new this girl had to be mine!  Pedigree on her sires side opens up a whole new line for us.  This goes back to English lines that we would never find here and beautiful show champions 6 generaton in England, her mother is all Captiva, and if you saw I bred to Captiva’s Turning Heads and kept a male, Connor.  So the next generation will be a blend of Erinshire/ Captiva / and European lines.  She is truly a Canadian girl, loves the snow.  She is very independent and bright.  She plays on her own and can entertain us all day, outgoing, and  investigates everything.  I think we may have a  “wild child” ! Here are some cute pictures…
