Most Mischievous Thing You Have Ever Done? I don’t think I’m mischievous I’m just inquisitive and adventurous trying new things. I tried on my mums new leather shoes and thought I’d adjust the insole and toe as they just weren’t right.
How Did You Come Into Your Owners Life? I came into my servant’s life (setters don’t have owners) on the day I was delivered by C section with my 2 sisters . Unfortunately my 2 sisters didn’t make it so I’m very special as I was long awaited for …..I’m a limited edition.
