Rainbow Bridge Poem

Hi, I'm Bob Gibson (Hilloch« Irish Setters)

My involvement with dogs began when I met Brenda. Both Brenda's mother and grandmother had bred dogs for many years, and as a consequence we started our marriage in 1984 with our first dog "Princess", Brenda's Pom. Over the next few years, we began to take an interest in conformation shows which allowed me to view the variety of breeds that were available in the area. In 1988, I acquired my foundation Irish Setter from Marianne Buck, Maronova« Irish Setters. Melly (BISS CH Maronova's Autumn Melody) was a great dog for me both as a show dog and a campanion. In 1990 under Brenda's most capable hands, Melly won the Irish Setter Club of Ontario Specialty - a very special moment for us. In the spring of 1992, Melly produced her first and only litter for me and presented me with Reb (CH Hilloch's Rebel With A Cause) who sired my next generation. Melly passed away in 2002 shortly after her 14th birthday, as did Rebel on November 11, 2005 at age 13.

Since my involvement in dogs, I have also taken an active interest in both the Irish Setter and Pomeranian breed clubs. I have undertaken various positions from Director to President at one point or another with many the clubs that we have been members, including a founding member and first treasurer of the Pomeranian Club of Ontario.
