Bagger finished his championship at 15 months old with 3 specialty majors.  He absolutely loves the show ring and has always done everything I have ever asked of him.  He has been ranked in the top 10 (#8) in 2005 and has qualified for Eukanuba in 2005 & 2006.  He has multiple group placements and he was shown at Westminster in 2006.  Bagger recently has retired from the show ring and is having a great time being a couch potato, going to work with me everyday, and welcoming in the ladies from out of town!

May 2008 - Bagger started showing with Shea Jonsrud in Junior Showmanship.  They have only shown together for 2 weekends and so far they have a 1st, a 2nd, a 3rd, and a 4th in very competitive classes.  I am so thrilled to get to watch Bagger in the ring again and Shea does an AMAZING job with him!  Bagger is loving his new "career".  Pictures to come soon!

Sept 2008 - Bagger and Shea have qualified for Eukanuba!!!  They have acquired 5 first place class placements (in tough competition) which qualifies them for the  Eukanuba Classic in December in Long Beach, CA.  I am so proud of them both and can't wait to watch them at one of the biggest shows.

9/20 & 21/2008 - Shea & Bagger get two more first places in Juniors at the Grand Junction Kennel Club show!!  If they get 3 more they will qualify for Westminster in February.  Keep your fingers crossed....

October 2008 - Shea & Bagger win first in her class all three days at the Rapid City Kennel Club show and went on to win BEST JUNIOR 2 of the 3 days.  They are qualified for Westminster now - way to go Shea & Bagger!!  Scroll down to see a recent picture of this awesome team.

February 2009 - Shea & Bagger win their class all 3 days at the Secaucus, NJ specialties.  They showed beautifully at Westminster amongt significant competition.  Then, they went back to Colorado to win two first places in huge competition and to go Best Junior one of the days.  This was one of Shea's goals - to go "Best Junior" and the Colorado Kennel Club Shows in Denver and she did it!!!  Shea & Bagger have already qualified to go to Eukanuba next year in 2010.

8/14/09 - Bagger wins the Colorado Irish Setter Specialty from the Veteran's class!!!!  It was amazing - he looked so good and had so much fun.  Thanks to Melissa Money for showing him.  Bagger is 7 years old now and he "has still got it!"  I am so proud of him!!  Pictures to come....  Also, his son, Superstition Marakesh Express won a 5 point major the same day - now Crosby only needs 1 point to finish his championship.

April 2010 - Bagger gets the First Award of Merit at the Dixon, California Specialty from the veteran classes with an entry of 45 dogs!!  He's still got it!!!

May 2, 2010 - Shea goes "Best Junior" with Bagger in Seward, NE - congrats you two!!

June 2010 - Bagger goes to the National as a veteran.  He looked amazing!!!  He showed beautifully - went 3rd in Veteran classes.  Of course, I think he should have gone first! lol  I am always amazed at him in the ring - he moves so beautifully and just LOVES to be out there.  My amazing boy....scroll down for pictures from the National.

June 2011 - Bagger wins Best Veteran in Sweepstakes at the Irish Setter Club of America National show in Oklahoma City, Ok!!!  It was such an amazing win and it brought tears to my eyes to see him having so much fun in the ring.  Thanks to everyone for the wonderful compliments and the attention that was given to him - he absolutely loved it!!!  Scroll down to see some pictures of this wonderful win.

June 30, 2014 - I had to make one of the toughest decisions of my life - to help Bagger to the rainbow bridge.  My heart is aching and I can't believe my gentle giant is gone.  He had a heart the size of the grand canyon and he gave me his all - always!  He was the ultimate show dog and loved to be in the ring.   At home he had the best manners and was always a gentlemen.  He protected me and guarded me and always made me feel safe.  He lived and loved with such grace and dignitiy - he truly was the "king".  My house will never be the same.....I was truly so blessed to spend 12 years with this amazing animal.  I love you Bagger.

I do have vey good frozen semen on Bagger.  Inquiries welcome.
