I got my mail today and received a copy of a magazine called Healthy Pet. I think they got my information from my Vet. Anyway, the cover story is on Olivia Newton-John and her love of animals. On the cover is a picture of Olivia with her 8 year old Irish Setter. There are two additional photos in the mag with OIivia and her Setter. I haven't read the whole article but noticed this is her 5th Irish.
I have also read a former US President, Richard Nixon, had an Irish Setter, King Timahoe. Are there other famous people who are Irish Setter owners?
I will try and get some scanned in later this month. I have been averaging working close to 60 hours a week and will probably push 70 each of the next 2 weeks. Plus, my scanner is offline for some reason. I need some time to figure out what is wrong with it.
I'd never heard of Beorge Best, but he sounded like a wonderful man from the tribute to him on that website Joan. Lovely man with lovely dogs. How sad he died so young. Thanks for sharing. He reminded me of Sean Connor.
Notice in the picture of Nixon and his family with the dogs, everyone is looking at the Irish Setter? That's the way it is with the world's most beautiful dog........no one can take their eyes off of them.
