Quick Bio:

BIRD BIRDS BIRDS!!! Big, big, BIG running! Sound of a shotgun - there's a bird for ME!

Anything that occurs without my prior authorization; presumptuous people who try to touch the top of my head before they have been properly introduced; noisy, impolite children; when the cleaning ladies take away all my dirt and smells from our home.

Favorite Toy:
Knuckle bones, Greenies, hooves (plain or frozen and stuffed with peanut butter or cheese), pig ears, Kong filled with liver treats, bully sticks.

Favorite Food:
Anything I can steal from the kitchen counter or dining table!

Favorite Walk:
I don't walk - I run ... trails, fields, beach. I like riding in mom's new car & eating people food at sidewalk cafes that welcome dogs.

Best Tricks:
Here's one I made up myself: During rare moments when I am not The Center of Attention, I present a series of my most beautiful "sits" and "downs" while barking and making "wirr-wirrr" noises.

Arrival Story:
My mom wanted a Springset Gordon Setter, and there I was, just four weeks old! I was ten weeks old when she brought me home.

"September 18, 2004: A Wonderfully Birdy Day"

After spending the morning at Dog Day Care, Mom & Dad took me to Field Training ...

When the birds arrived, I was *verrry verrry* excited! First, I pointed the bird pen - c'mon, let's go already!! Then the birds were taken out and placed in various levels of cover ...

I quickly found the birds and snapped into incredibly stylish points. I impressed all onlookers ...

I proudly carried the birds around the training grounds in my soft Gordon mouth, and when I dropped the birds, they flew back to their pen unharmed ...

7:30 AM -Breakfast: 1/2 can Duck & Potato plus chunks of lamb roll
9:00 AM - Dog Day Care. Romp & wrestle non-stop. Cruise from play group to play group, flirting, gossiping, and looking beautiful ...
12:00 noon - Sunbathing, stretching my lovely legs in front of everyone ...
2:00 PM - Pool time! It's hot today and I enjoy putting my head in front of the sprayer while the pool is filled. Who's that gorgeous dog? Oh, it's my reflection in the water ...
6:00 PM - A wonderful ride home in the car with the windows down (I'm safely in my crate) ...
6:30 PM - Upon arrving home, I discover that strangers have been in my home and removed dog hair, dog dirt, and dog smells from the carpet. I inspect everything. I don't like this one bit. I did not authorize this ...
6:45 PM - Dinner: Premium health food for dogs , chunks of lamb roll, and 1 can Fish & Sweet Potato plus coat supplement. I pick at this on and off - a Diva never devours her food. Wait for Mom & Dad to pretend they're eating my food. Mom puts a spoon in my dinner to make it look like people food and then I eat it ...
7:30 PM - Search for ideal pig ear hiding place ...
8:00 PM - Can't locate hiding place for pig ear. Consume pig ear and then fall asleep in The Good Chair ...
10:00 PM - Take a last walk outside and then race upstairs to adhere myself to Mom & Dad's bed ...
