English Setters: Extinction?


January 25th, 2012 Posted 8:56 am

“Here’s something from  the BBC – ” Spence begins.

“The Beeb!” says Admin.

“I’m sorry?”

“That’s what the Brits call it – the Beeb.”

“And do Canadians call the CBC the Ceeb?”

“I don’t know,” Admin says. “Canadians maybe once were sort of Britty but I don’t think they are now.”

“Back to the article. It seems that the English setter and some other native UK breeds are threatened with extinction, surpassed in popularity by other breeds.” He glances at Admin. “Especially breeds favored by celebrities.”

Admin – what’s the human expression? takes the bait? “Celebrities? Just because some vacant botox-face sports something means other people are suddenly panting for  it? I’d want the very opposite!”

Spence thinks that over. “What’s the opposite of Prada?”

“What the hell is Prada?”

Welcome Tom the church cat.
