Two weeks ago I had to say good bye to my Irish Setter, Ciera (Starbrite Tullamore Dew). I’ve had the pleasure to be owned by many wonderful dogs all with their own unique personalities but Ciera was just plain special. I had the pleasure of hunting with her and having her as my running companion. She was still running with me until last year when she just couldn’t keep up anymore due to arthritis. Other then some white on her muzzle, you would never have had guessed her age. She was my first Irish Setter and won’t be my last if I ever decide to be owned by another dog. I miss her dearly.
