The California EPA must have found a carcinogen in the old stuff that may have been linked to the eventual demise of a laboratory rat.....

Guess what?.... WE DON'T CARE!! - Bring back the old formula!

"I'm a Setter man.
Not because I think they're better than the other breeds,
but because I'm a romantic - stuck on tradition - and to me,
a Setter just "belongs" in the grouse picture."

George King, "That's Ruff", 2010 - a timeless classic.
