<< Check last Sunday's NY TIMES Travel section for a great photo of an ES/OFC-
type dog lying in front of a tavern in Ireland. Perhapes a few of the old
types are still over there.
I still have a clipping of an ad which I cut from a magazine that showed an
Irish old-farm-collie type of dog, and a glimpse of one can be seen in the
National Geographic special, "Ballad of the Irish Horse." I would think those
types are still there (and Irish dogs as well as those from Scotland, England
and Wales contributed to the American old farm collie, especially in view of
the numbers of "Scotch Irish" and Irish who immigated to America).
