"This is Bama, a full-blooded Irish Setter. The pictures were taken in Meridian, Mississippi. He is a traveling doggy!! We travel 6 different states in a motor home (our job requires us to do so). Bama is with us 24/7! He loves it! All the different smells are so overwhelming to him. People always ask me, "What kind of dog is that?" He always stops the traffic! He has a wonderful temperament. But he always lets us know when someone is at the door. He is our first Irish Setter and won't be our last! Such a cuddly breed of dog. He is one beautiful dog! His favorite place to go is a farm where we board our 3 horses. There he plays with his best friend, an Australian Shepherd mix named Cookie. He loves to go with us as we ride the horses! His favorite things to do are play, go walking, hiking, riding in the Eclipse car with the top down, run alongside our bikes and horses, jumping, go jogging with me, play chase, play fetch, and best of all, swimming!!! He is very smart, too! I trained him to sit, lie down, stand, shake hands, give me 5, load up (in the bed of a truck, etc.) and stay. Also two of his good tricks are: #1 To jump up and put his front feet on my arm then walk with me on his back legs! So funny! And #2 trick is to "walk pretty!" Meaning he really high steps for me when I put my hand near is mouth and say "walk pretty." He's so awesome when he does this! His favorite treats are: O'l Roy dog bones, treats from the treat bar in PetCo, chicken, cupcakes, birthday cake (because of the buttercream icing!), shrimp tails and rawhide chewies. His favorite toys are anything that squeaks! But his most favorite toy is a squeaky stuffed pheasant. This pic with him seat belted in was funny because he somehow, with the buckle already snapped, weaved himself under the straps. He seemed to say "I'm ready to go!" (he was 5 months in this one.) I am so glad that I had the camera that day! You never know what he will do next, that's what I love so much about this breed!! The word handsome fits him really well. His dislikes are being left back at the motor home or car when we go into stores where doggies are not allowed. And he does not like to be scolded. Also he gets tons of exercise, because I myself am very active. So he gets all the exercise he needs! He is such a happy boy!"
