He was so well-known that when he died in 1891, The New York Times ran an obituary.[2] He was popularly known as the "$10,000 hunting dog."[3] He was described as a "national symbol of what was great in bird dogs."[3] Benjamin Frederick Wilson, Count Noble's owner His owner, Captain Benjamin Frederick Wilson, was a banker and coal barge operator.[3] While he was well-known for his hunting prowess and show skills, it was his prepotency, the ability to pass on his best traits to his progeny, that made him the most famous.[3] In 1880, he won the national amateur Derby dog show.[2] He was so famous that owners of other setters refused to compete in shows with him.[2] Other shows offered special inducements in order to encourage his owner to compete.[2] A portrait of Count Noble by Edmund Osthaus hangs in the first-floor reading room of the Duquesne Club.[3] Following his death, his preserved body was displayed in the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in a scene showing him hunting quail.[3] The display was moved to The National Bird Dog Museum in Tennessee.[3] In 2011, American Kennel Club judge Richard LeBeau began an effort to raise $2,000 to establish a historical marker honoring Count Noble outside Osborne Elementary School, which stands on the site of Wilson's former home.[3] References ^ Hardman, Ernie.
