Drew, thanks for those links. Weren't those Russian setters Llewellins?

canvasback, I don't think that this is a "pissing match", it is no different than the type of double you prefer.
All I was doing was making a reference to how the dogs in George Evans movie looked compared to old pictures of setters, none had the high tail, which again in my opinion, ruined them. You did not see that in old pictures.

Ted, I'm afraid that was not me that made reference to 1880's as being old. I did state old pictures, mainly old photos and old drawings. And I do believe that the first English setter came to America sometime after the Civil War and was imported by a man from Morris Plains, N.J.

trebling, thanks. He did have some Old Hemlock lineage.

Brother Drew, as always thanks for your vast references.

Thanks Drew, totally unfamiliar with that line of setters and not what I was referring to.

Might also mention the Jetrain line of dogs. But, a dog can be too small also, and some of them were.
I haven't seen one in many years.


Best,
Ted

Never owned but one setter dog. Someone gave "Dan" to me but failed to mention he was deaf. I wondered why he was totally un-biddable until I figured what was wrong with him.

Big solid white dog with beautiful feathering and conformation. My oldest child's first words (he is 40 now) were "HUSH DAN", which I must have hollered out the window a million times.

Dan died when my father was keeping him for a weekend and tossed him a 'gaines-burger'. Dan caught it and choked to death...Geo

Thanks Geo for sharing that wonderful story of yours about a dog that choked to death. Our lives are so much richer for it. smirk

Not that I don't like setters, but my present dog, a Deutsche Drahthaar, is the best dog with which I have ever hunted. Not a show dog at all. Had to present a current hunting license to the breeder before he would even talk to me about getting a pup. He's now eight and still behaves like a young dog. And, at about 90 pounds, there is a lot of him.
