17/9/2006 - CACIB ZWOLLE (NL): A first ticket CAC in Holland for Chickadee off McBirdy!
After Rotterdam, Chickadee also obtained one 1st Exc in
open class at Zwolle Show, under the judge Mr. Thorn (U.K.).
But this time, she obtains the res. CACIB/CAC. And like the best bitch: Vicary' S Banshee is already
Nederland Champion, Chickadee will be able to recover its CAC.
A great cheer with Charlotte for her perfect handling.

13-15/9/2006 - First Field-Trial
training for our Babies & Juniors
This 13/9 we started the training on fields began the drives on ruails with Elwenn and Eylinn off McBirdy (8 months). Both showed beautiful provisions. Eylinn impressed us with a splendid stop on a ruail dissimulated well in the vegetation. It was also for Philippe Varemans, the owner of Eylinn, the discovery of the world of Field-Trial, and probably a new passion, with the harmony and team work with our friends Raymond and Chris Laurencin, organizers of the Belgian Club of Directs of Weimar.
15/9 it was with the turn of Frisbee & Fletcher (4 months). And there too, they impressed us. They have both very good noses, stops marked already well and are very attracted by the game (ruails).
Cheyenn A seems it transmitted well its qualities of chasseuse.
The changing is thus ensured at McBirdy.

Perfect right and left for McBirdy. Cheyenn obtains one 1 Exc in working class and 2 tickets VDH.
It is then Chickadee to also obtain one 1 Exc in open class with also 2 tickets VDH (double ration in Dortmund). But Chickadee does not stop

First show in Holland for Chickadee of McBirdy, and again one 2nd place. Fortunately, the
report of the judge shows the possibility for very good prespectives for Chickadee
. One will thus return there!
Ermès and Eelwenn of McBirdy took their first lesson on the grounds of the
canine education center 'VIVRE AVEC EUX' in Courcelles. They are really at ease with all the other dogs and all the people met. It was obviously the attraction of the day and everyone wanted to cherish these splendid pups. Soon, several other brothers and sisters will come to join them to
attend the lessons.

18/11/2005 - A formidable news:
pups from Ch. Yuelynn are expected for 20.12.2005 !!
We waited until the examination by echography is conclusive before announcing the news. It is done: Yuelynn
is pregnant !
Our veterinary friend counted 7 ones.
It is a great joy for us, because Yuelynn is undoubtedly best representing of McBirdy. But, of very irregular
seasons, a first nest of only one pup (but splendid Chickadee) and then a
gestation without pups left us a bitter taste and little hope for the future.
We are thus happy to announce that pups are expected soon at McBirdy of the
combination Ch. Xtullyowen of the Golden Vale X Ch. Yuelynn of McBirdy.
We grow the fingers so that all occurs well and that this promising combination gives us splendid pups. Long waiting until on
20th December !
- Piet Roks Junior Day ISC - NL:
our young dogs again with the honor !
results are very encouraging since 3 of the 4 young dogs presented were
Dovey of McBirdy
after his 3rd place at the Junior Day ISC in Belgium in September thus confirms
his splendid potential for the future.
When in Chickadee, in a class of 17 competitors, the final decision was quite
difficult to take for judge De Matteo and much thought that Chickadee had
carried it. A great cheer with Charlotte for her presentation worthy of a pro!
Dundee of McBirdy
- A new presentation for our website.
the assistance of our friend Charlotte Godart, who with much of talent designed
us a new McBirdy banner, we modified the presentation of our site. We think that
it is thus more attractive.
But we still have other projects of improvement for the next weeks, with an
improvement of the navigation menu and two photos galleries: one devoted to our
pups, the other devoted to our setters in general.
– A very busy weekend !
this weekend, it would have been necessary to go through fire and water.
We awaited the Yelly’s pups: they were born the 8/9/2005. They are 5 (4 dogs +
1 bitch). They are very few, but in good health: it is most important. Mum Yelly
is taking care of them and the dairy functions with full output.
.This Sunday, Cheyenn of McBirdy was engaged in Field-Trial in Waterloo.
Unfortunately, the very strong rains of the day before had not encouraged
pheasants to remain in beets. They were much more with the shelter in the corn
fields. Therefore, not of occasion: a blow in water (humour!).
. In parallel was held the ' Juniors Day' of The Irish Setter Club of Belgium on
the grounds of the club in Wommelgem. Fortunately, time was not unpleasant and
competition was serious (91 registered dogs).
Our dogs behaved well, including one very beautiful 3th place in junior dogs
class for Dundee of McBirdy. A place in the last selection before classification
for Chickadee of McBirdy and a qualification Excellent with a very good report
for our young bitches Dyna of McBirdy (for its first show) and Chelby of McBirdy.
When on Dicey Dovey of McBirdy, in spite of a very good report, a decision is
essential: a small died is to be envisaged to refine its line!

Qualification: 4th 'GOOD'
result for Cheyenn of McBirdy: she is qualified in Field Trials in 22 month
with the qualification ' GOOD' which will allow her, we
hope for it, to consider the titles of Champion of Belgium and International
After Ch. Lordly Unci, Ch. Yuelynn of McBirdy and Bumbee of McBirdy, Cheyenn
thus continues in the way we traced ourselves: to produce the beautiful ones
and good dogs.
And from now on, Chickadee of McBirdy, the daughter of Ch. Yuelynn of McBirdy
and little girl of Ch. Lordly Unci is training in the fields to ensure the continuation
of this breeder line.
With our friends stockbreeders
of the other breed clubs responsible for the gundogs, we try to hold hunting
qualities which must remain a goal for all of us. We hope that our results will
raise up other vocations within our breed club and hope for a better support
in this way.
