Irish Water and the American Cocker
Why "Domaine d'Haïsha" ?
Haïsha, in memory of Haïsha de Castelmare,
little Tricolour American Cocker born in 1983.
Unfortunately, she didn't live long. We
were used to let the dogs in the garden when we were doing some shopping and,
one day, we came back and found her, lying besides a tree, she seemed asleep.
She was dead. She was autopsied by the vet, and he saw her liver was bursted.
Probably after a kick given by one of our neighbours, who used a part of our
garden as a kitchen garden. To go there, he had to cross our garden, and
he didn't like the dogs very much. Of course, he never told us he was
responsible of Haïsha's dead. Haïsha was 5 months old.
The kennel name "du Domaine
d'Haïsha" was created in 1984. Thus in 2004, the kennel celebrated his
Our children, Carol, Nicolas
and Gaëlle, were raised in the doggy world since their tender age.
We never forced them to continue in that way,
but Carol became all breeds groomer, Nicolas was handler for many years, and
Gaëlle loves the dogs ...
Her name was "Laïka" and she
was out of a "cross-breed" (poodle, maltese, ...). She came with us
everywhere, on holidays, ... She lived until the age of 14.
