Uptown Lord Setter

Uptown Lord Setter  Character Post 37

 Uptown Lord Setter is an aristocratic Irish Setter owned by Caterina Smith. He's a friendly and kindhearted dog, inclined to minor anxiety if he thinks he might get into trouble. Lord Red, as his friend Jack calls him, has no reason to be anxious. Caterina Smith adores him, and gives him everything he wants... as long as she considers it is in his best interests.
Every so often, Lord Red goes on the lam, usually in the company of his friends Jack and Foxie. If he's gone too long from Uptown House, Caterina is inclined to yodel Loooorrrrrdeeee! which brings Red smartly home.
Lord Red  isn't the smartest biscuit in the pack. In fact, he reminds me very much of George as played by Hugh Laurie in the Black Adder TV series. Like George, Red is loyal and devoted. Jack Russell, whom Red considers his best friend after Caterina Smith, values him accordingly. Lord Red appears in the Jack Russell Dog Detective series. The picture shows Red as depicted by Janine Dawson throughout the series.

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books. As of February 18th 2018 I STILL haven't run out of books, but many of those still to come are MIA by which I mean I don't have copies and remember little about them. There are more new books to come, and I'll certainly showcase those, but in between times, I'm profiling some of my characters, just for a change. Thank you so much to everyone who's come along on this journey so far!
