SeaSpecs Dalmatians

SeaSpecs One Skookum Girl is 16 years old today! On my last trip to her veterinarian, he called her a Super Senior, meaning really really old. If it weren't for old age cataracts, though, I am pretty pleased with her health. Her appetite and mobility are good, but she motors around slowly these days because of her compromised vision and I use an old tracking harness to help her down the stairs. Otherwise, everything is working pretty well. Most days she still gets a bit of boiled or scrambled egg, dollop of yogurt, salmon oil capsule, glucosamine and MSN capsule with her kibble. She also sleeps very soundly these days. Here are some photos of Skookies in her younger days: jumping the agility tire, posing for her tracking title with the found glove, doing the long down at the National, taking the broad jump in the ballroom, and now snoozing. You've earned your retirement, little Skooks. ... See MoreSee Less

It's fun to think of themes when breeding a litter. Sugar's litter theme was the "Overcomer" litter. I had just finished months of chemotherapy and other cancer treatment and it was time to move on with life as I planned the litter with my friend Bonnie Rose's help. It was nice to be looking forward again instead of just making it through each day.

Today I was reminded of that theme when I read in the Seattle Times that the winner of the best moment in Seattle Sports (via online voting) was the "Boys in the Boat" University of Washington rowing crew who traveled to Hitler's Berlin in 1936 to win the gold medal. This was a time in history when there was East/West coast rivalry and the country was in the time of the Depression. Think Jack Dempsey vs Gene Tunney, Seabiscuit vs War Admiral, and the rough Westcoasters vs the sophisticated well to do Easterners. I enjoyed the book so much, the registered name of the puppy I kept from the Overcomer litter (Ember) includes the phrase "Turnin on the Heat" which was used to tell the crew to row faster. If you haven't read the book Boys on the Boat by Daniel James Brown, I recommend it. It is available for download. It's an interesting historical read and an insight into teamwork and what it takes to win. I am a UW grad and I knew nothing about this feat until a few years ago. Go Huskies!

This is a photo of Ember added for visual interest.
