Another of Mr. Fick's stories had to do with one of his hunting partners and the latter's dog, Bunco. Bunco was an Irish Setter ... belonged to Dr. Poutain, one of Harvard's dentists ... "belonged to the Doctor, but he lived with me". The doctor was very fond of Bunco and probably proud of him also, because he commissioned E. A. Burbank ... to paint the dog's portrait.


... what became of the picture nobody knows.
