are Bob and Rosanne Schwiegerath. After spending our
entire lives in New Jersey, we took an early retirement
(we were both pharmaceutical chemists) and relocated
to the town of Socorro in south central New Mexico
back in 1997.
The story of Amberlove Gordon Setters actually began
with Amber, our first Gordon, back in 1990. The kennel
name results from a combination of Amber and the street
where we lived at the time, Love Road. We were first
introduced to setters by Kelly, our Irish Setter rescue
who owned us for almost 15 wonderful years.
We now share life with many fantastic Gordons and show
them in conformation. And even occasionally compete
in Hunt Tests. Before New Mexico, our Gordons were always
house dogs. But when we came west we built a kennel.
The "kids" now take turns in the house on
a daily basis where we usually have three at any one
time......who, by the way, become instant velcro.
We love it here at Creosote Corners - our oasis in the
desert. We are on the outskirts of the small town of
Socorro about an hour south of Albuquerque. Our fenced
in six acres give the dogs plenty of room to run....although
we must admit the combination of long-haired dogs and
desert brush are a daily challenge.
