Artist's Description

Molly is a rare red and white Irish Setter who has a huge heart and an old soul. I have
raised and loved Irish Setters, English Setters and Gordon Setters for most of my adult life. My photos on RB of Jesse and Loving Jesse captures the spirit of my first Irish Setter and Willard is a wonderful photo of our tri-color English Setter and his Daddy lounging in our backyard. I love taking photos of my dogs and Molly is one of the most expressive dogs I have ever known. Her facial expressions and body language speak volumes. Sometimes I wonder what witty things she might say if she could speak. She probably could write a book that rivals Dorothy Parker and Oscar Wilde for their wicked wit. Although Oscar Wilde is widely known as a playwright, his fairy tales for children are exquisite and poignant stories of true beauty, selfless love, generosity, loyalty, brilliant wit, and moral aestheticism such as “The Birthday of the Infanta,”, “The Selfish Giant,” The Nightingale and the Rose" and the Happy Prince," among others. They are true classics of wonder for all ages and I imagine his fairy tale, “The Devoted Friend” might be her favorite as demonstrated by her loyalty to our family, especially her beloved Mikey. When I saw her precious face in this photograph, I associated to a quote from Fran Liebowitz. “If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater…suggest that he wear a tail.” Rachael Hale, a well known dog photographer wrote 101 Salivations:For the Love of Dogs, a tribute to the animals who have stood by us for centuries and continue to be our best friends. Please view this in the large format. This portrait of Molly was taken with Nikon DSLR D80. using a
Macro lens.
