Lola, the proud and independent Irish Setter, (the spouse, part 2)

“When we ran out of all the breeds he was interested in, I went online to look for Irish Setters, because my most magnificent dog of my entire life was an Irish Setter.

I got him when I went to college in the 1970’s and he went to class with me.

He was my constant companion.

When I was married and my kids came along he would stroll through the park with us and much to my ex-wife’s horror and pride, people would comment on how beautiful my dog was (as opposed to noticing my kids).

That was Shannon, named after Shannon Run Road in Lexington Kentucky.”
