Count Noble: The Greatest Dog That Ever Lived

countnoble2Published in 2011 in cooperation with Sewickley Valley Historical Society, this book by Richard LeBeau concerns Count Noble, an English Setter so famous that his obituary appeared in the New York Times in 1891. Count Noble was owned by Glen Osborne resident B. F. Wilson, and his wife owned Mildmay Park Beauty, the first English Toy Spaniel registered by the American Kennel Club. In addition to the story of Count Noble, there is extensive information on the Wilson family and on Pittsburgh in their time.  Count Noble's bloodline has had a lasting impact on sporting English Setters and field trials in the United States.
