"We had an Irish Setter from six weeks old to 17yrs he was our child and adolescent boy He could catch Birds in his mouth and bring them to us without hurting them Many a time he's brought a pheasant or partridge home to be told take it back to its nest and we have followed him he drops it in the nest and wags his tail.John spent up to 5 hours a day training him He would climb trees and he was almost human.."
