I recently had some random old negatives put onto a disc. One of the photos I found was this one of my Maggie J. Red. (This is when I was trying infrared film.) I got her in 1975, right after I got out of high school. I had met someone who had an Irish Setter and I knew I had to have one! I looked in the paper and found puppies in Madison Heights for $50. I drove over there that day. When I walked in the backyard there were 11 setter puppies running toward me! What a wonderful memory! I kept my eye on a particular one that was friendly and kept nibbling on my toe.
I took her home, and Maggie was my loyal friend for 14 years. I hope you have a loyal friend.
