Great Dogs From Our Past

                                                           BRANDY

                                                 CH. Lunn's Gaelic Pride

                             (CH. Donoval's Crimson Crown X Lady Lou of Lunn)

 Brandy was our first champion, out of our first litter bred.  She introduced us to many firsts.  A great lady in many respects.

                                                         TAYLOR

                                              CH. Lunn's Taylor Maid

                      (CH. Villa-Dan's Darth Vadar X CH. Lunn's Gaelic Pride)

Although Taylor passed in November 2002, 5 months shy of her 14th birthday, her legacy lives on in her children and in their children. She personified the true Irish Setter

                                                        PANDA

                                    CH. Lunn's Pandemonium, OA

               (CH. Meadowlarks Spring to Success X CH. Lunn's Taylor Maid)

Out of Taylor's first litter, Panda finished her American and Canadian championships on both coasts. After her successful show career, Panda went to the whelping box to try her hand at that. After having 14 puppies in her first litter, she decided agility would be a lot easier. Like jumping through hoops, she quickly received her open agility title. Although Panda passed unexpectedly in 2003, you can definitely see her in her boys Parker and Brody.

                                                           BRODY

                                        CH. Lunn's Great Expectations, NA

                (Can. CH Lunn's Bartholomew X CH. Lunn's Pandemonium, OA)

With a heart of a lion, Brody loved everyone and every dog he ever met.  I miss you BoBo.  Gone but never forgotten.

                                                         PARKER

                                    CH. Lunn's Executive Decision, AXJ, OA

                 (Can. CH. Lunn's Bartholomew X CH. Lunn's Pandemonium, OA)

Lunn's first home-bred champion, Parker finished his American championship exclusively from the Bred By class. Like his brother Brody, Parker was also bored sitting at home and spent most of his life living with his good friend Karen Booth. Karen showed "Doodles" to two agility titles.

                                                         MASON

               Multi group winnig/Multi BISS CH. Lunn's A Pefect Gentleman

                (CH. Touchstone's Out of the Blue X CH. Lunn's Taylor Maid)

Always breeder/owner handled, Mason finished at 19 months with two specialty majors. Surpassing all of our expectations, Mason finished 2002 as the #3 ranked Irish Setter in the country.

                                                         GILLIAN

                                            CH. Lunn's Picture Perfect

                     (CH. Touchstone's Out of the Blue X CH. Lunn's Taylor Maid)

Gillian was the second to finish from Taylor's last litter, finishing with a specialty major. She had one litter of 9 pups in 2002.

                                                           STACEY

                                              CH. Lunn's A Heart of Gold

                     (CH. Touchstone's Out of the Blue X CH. Lunn's Taylor Maid)

Stacey, a stylish and elegant bitch, was the fourth to finish from Taylor's last litter, finishing with specialty majors from the Bred By Class. She had a litter of 5 beautiful pups in 2003. Stacey was owned and loved by Chris McSherry, southern Ohio.

                                                     PEPPER

                                     CH. Lunn's Red Hot Chili Pepper

                      (Lunn's Leading Man X BISS CH. Lunn's Queen of Hearts ROM)

                                                 9/12/08-7/8/13

 Unexpectedly on July 8th 2013, Pepper tragically passed on to the Rainbow Bridge.  She was loved and cared for by Garth Baker of Columbus OH.  She passed away in his arms and was his heart dog.  She will be greatly missed by all who ever met her. She had the most wonderful temperment and never met a person or dog/cat she didn't like.  Garth and we at Lunn's are heartbroken over the tragedy and hope that she is running free and chasing all the birds, squirrels and rabbits to her hearts content.  May the shamrocks fall softly sweet girl.

In her short life here with us, she finished her championship at 14 months of age with 3 majors. She produced 4 beautiful puppies that will hopefully have her spirit for life and wonderful disposition. 

 

                                                           PHOEBE

                 Multi group winning/Multi BISS CH. Lunn's Queen of Hearts, ROM

                         (CH. Cairncross In Sync x CH. Lunn's Heart of Gold)

                                                    2/28/03 - 4/15/16

 Phoebe finished her championship at 15 months of age.  She grew up and I brought her back out as a special.  In the 2 1/2 years she was shown she won many groups and multiple Best in Specialty shows.  She retired in  2007 to have puppies.  Her first litter by "Alex" Lunn's Leading Man, produced 5 puppies and three are champions, one is a Master Hunter with a CD and agility title.  Her second litter by "Peter" CH. Cairncross Silverado produced 5 puppies and 4 finished their championships by the age of 2 years old.  That gave Phoebe her ROM ( Register of Merit) for producing 7 champions.  We are very proud of Phoebe's accomplishments in and out of the ring and whelping box.  She is now living the good life as Queen of the house.

Although Phoebe has crossed over the rainbow bridge, she lives on in her kids, grandkids and great grandkids.  She is missed everyday and hope to see her running again in the future.  Miss you "green bean" XXXOOO

 

THE VETERAN
They say I’m a Veteran as I’m old and grey
but don’t you remember…?  I did have my day
I was a show dog once, so bold and proud
Oh, I can hear it now – the applause of the crowd!
I’m gentle and patient with puppies I see
But of course – aren’t they all sired by me?
The father of Champions, there are a few
Look at my pedigree, grandchildren too
I sleep a lot now, on couch or in sun
and dream of the Shows – and prizes I won
I still love to go out for a ride in the car
Or a walk up the road, long as it’s not too far
My legs are tired and my joints get sore
Hey, Woof!  Who’s that at the door
And so, as a much loved pet and life-long friend
I have no fear of that fateful end.
