Introduction I'm a red Irish setter born in Norway of Norwegian, American and Irish ancestry. I have proven myself in field trials, won prizes at dog shows, but my greatest asset is my charm and my irresistible setter grin (though my human claims I look as if I keep snuff under my upper lip). Silly human! Dogs are far too smart to (ab)use legal or illegal substances; I keep to time-proven vices like chasing hares, neighboring cats and postmen. And the odd sip of champagne or single malt...
Interests Game birds of course. Mainly grouse and pheasant but I find ducks fascinating too. Swans as well but as a pup I learned to keep my distance - their bite is awesome and their wings real killer instruments.
