let me introduce rua to you. he is like my adopted pet and mind him whenever my friend goes away. he is an irish setter and about 3 years old. he came straight from ireland when he was 6 weeks old. he was so tiny and skinny when i took care him that time. now he is big but not the size that he is supposed to be. he is claimed to be a champion breed where his father or mother won several dog show in ireland. he gets excited when he sees me because he knows that he will get a longer walk with me. or at times i would take for a walk at the beach. here's some pictures that i took of him this past december.
