Exclusively Setters

Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World

Why do people breed animal species (like the dog - canis lupus familiaris) without the basic knowledge?

"Modern dog breeds show more variation in size, appearance, and behavior than any other domestic animal. Within the range of extremes, dogs generally share attributes with their wild ancestors, the wolves. Dogs are predators and scavengers, possessing sharp teeth and strong jaws for attacking, holding, and tearing their food. Although selective breeding has changed the appearance of many breeds, all dogs retain basic traits from their distant ancestors. Like many other predatory mammals, the dog has powerful muscles, fused wristbones, a cardiovascular system that supports both sprinting and endurance, and teeth for catching and tearing."

If the above text is really the description of the "dog" than in some Irish Setter Breeder's opinion the Irish Setter doesn't belong to this race. So please let me know to which animal race the Irish Setter belongs to or is it still an animal? Or a sweet plush toy?

Thanks Christiane, I was just giving up to explain and reexplain things to people. Seems they just don't want to understand what we are talking about and make us repeat the same things on their questions.
If this people would like I can upload to cleaning procedure of the animal, so they could see which part goes for canine consumption and which one for human consumption:)
Thank you very much Leen! I tried to sell the video to Disney but they said I'm asking too much for it:)

Walt Disney would change it probably. In the book, it is a bear attacking, Big Red the Irish setter saving Danny's life by a counter-attack.

This discussion reminds me of novellist T.H. White (The Goshawk) of whom Leighton-Boyce wrote: "One thing I remember about White was the typical explosion about the way "females who have never seen a grouse slain in anger impose their ridiculous new looks on what once was the most beautiful breed in the world". "

Murphy Productions----- LITTLE RED-------Brings down big Cat!!:o))

Big Red looks very pleased with his kill!!!! ;o))
Dont forget that there is a photo of Donald Duck being sneeked upon! At the moment we have NO IDEA whatsoever if he got away!

And yes, Mickey's slimy body ended up in the dustbin, so not even a state funeral!
Was that a Mickey, I thought it was his Bigger cousin, and shame on you for not giving a state funeral!!!! Ha Ha
