I’ve mentioned before that RJ favors setters, whereas I usually don’t. However, I met quite the head-turner just the other day.

12 March 2012: Checkers

Checkers is an Irish Red and White Setter. Despite the low tide, he had not a speck of water or mud on his gleaming coat. What can I say? I’m a sucker for clean-looking red and white dogs…

As I chatted with his owner, a German Shepherd trotted over and sniffed.

Checkers’ owner confided that he had almost been killed by a GSD as a kid. Decades later, when he was ready to have a dog of his own, he made sure to find one with a “happy face.”

I’d say he found what he needed!
