This is a pretty random collection that sort of came together on its own. I’ve always had a soft spot for English setters and will probably do more with them in future posts.
Tony’s Gale died the following year. More on this dog:
The next three dogs are related. Gath’s Mark was a littermate to Gath’s Hope and grandsire to Edge Mark.

Our Jane was a rescued English Setter of sorts. My husband’s uncle used to breed and raise English Setters and English Pointers. Janey had hip issues and wasn’t able to compete, as it were, so she came to us to live the life of a spoiled baby girl. She was twelve years old when we lost her to cancer.
Nice story! I wish I could see a picture of her.
I so wish I could share a picture with you! All of our photos of her are pre-digital and I’m not sure how to scan prints. :(
