Cute Picture...

This is a picture of my brothers Setter puppy way back when..I just happened to come across it and thought it might be fun to share. The puppy is solid clay bone and all but it didn't stop Bob from trying to share it.

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Aww!

Aw..so cute! He is with his friend and sharing his bone! I raised/showed Irish setters for years and still have much love for the Irish/English/Gordon setters.
He is a cutie pie! Vicki

I couldn't agree more...they're a special breed...I'd probably have stayed with Setters if I could have got them to stay in one place while out fishing but that's just not in their make up.

I miss the unique beauty of the Irish, but my husband waited his whole life for a Golden Retriever and now I am busy beginning Novice Agility with my 3 year old Papillon. I have to say that the setters still take my breath away when I see them. They do love to fish. Your location is amazingly beautiful. I added a pic of my last Irish bitch, Brooke, my husband and his GR love, Amber, and my Papillon, Piper. Vicki

Bob is at the bridge, that's an old photo, my brother did get another setter and named him Newman. A couple of pictures of puppy Newman...






My brother with Newman...



These Setters really are great dogs but they need lots of exercise and tons of attention like another breed I know.

Weird but many years ago as a child I knew people who had setters, but since then I haven't seen a one. Haven't seen one in the Dallas area either. Wonder why? They are such beautiful dogs and the ones in my neighborhood were sweethearts.

I want to surround myself with people who are "Cracked" for they are the ones that let the Sun Shine in.
