The Gordon Setter is known to have been around long before The Duke of Gordon had dogs. So how did they get the name, Gordon Setter? It's believed that originally they were called, Black & Fellows Setter Dog. Fellows, meaning tan or yellowish. If you're interested in the Gordon Setter history, Gordon Castle, and the Duke of Gordon, follow the link in the title. You'll find an interesting article by Rita Horter, with detailed history and art prints and photo's. Very interesting read.
