This image is from The Book of Dogs, 1919. It includes: a Gordon Setter, Irish Setter and English Setter. Click on image to enlarge.
The Gordon Setter looks more little like our Little Bear (who is part Rottweiler) than the image of the Smooth Collie that I posted two days ago.
The cortisone treatment Little Bear went for on August 28th has helped him out a lot but there are no guarantees as to how long it will last. The vet told us that if the cortisone was effective at all, it may last anywhere from one month to one year. Little Bear is part of our family and we cherish each day we have with him.
