I downloaded the photos from last night's Bark Mitzvah. Sea Smoke who is shown wearing her pink birthday collar enjoyed her gifts. She also got a bit tired by the end. Heck, I would be tired too if I were 91 in dog years and had a big party! Just look at Sea Smoke's face. She looks so much like her mother Daisy. Daisy was our first champion and very much adored. Her personality was fantastic. Her father Ch. Dickendall Ruffy was a fantastic Labrador. Her grandfather was Ch. Receiver of Cranspire who is one of the legends in the Labrador breed. Daisy was bred to Ch. Ashlyn's Don Giovanni to produce Sea Smoke. Gio was a gorgeous dog who won some of the top specialties. It seems like just yesterday that I watched Gio being shown at Potomac and was showing Daisy myself. And it seems like just yesterday that Sea Smoke was a baby wearing the pink yarn collar.
Today and yesterday I took my rowing shell out on Leadenwah Creek. It was great! Yesterday's row was harder because of fighting the wind and tide on the way back; however, today's row was out on the last of flood and back on near slack water. What a greatq way to spend a couple of hours.
