I was recently browsing the website of Trepak Siberian Huskies because our dog Bookerâ€™s sire is listed there.Â Bookerâ€™s father is named Ch. Trepakâ€™s Likely Story, and you can find him listed under the â€œboysâ€ icon on the home page. Good looks obviously run in the family. 🙂
Why was I visiting the website? Â Every so often I just like to take a peek at how the breeder, Eileen Gacke, is doing. I also like to Â note what new awards her dogs have been winning.Â Eileen is truly a fine, fine, person, and passionate about her Siberianâ€™s.Â Without her help (and Amandaâ€™s) we wouldnâ€™t have our beloved Booker.
What caught my attention was Eileenâ€™s description of Likely Storyâ€™s temperament including the phrase, â€œâ€¦he never has a bad day.â€Â What an extraordinary statement!
I find myself thinking I want to be like thatâ€¦no matter what comes my way I, too,Â can find the good in the situation or moment, and I can find the humor.Â (Now, if I had only read that part about Bookerâ€™s dad being â€œa jokesterâ€ earlier.Â That explains a lot about my empty planters and tortured plants.Â Itâ€™s simply in his genes.)
Eileen, thank you for those words! Â And thank you for Booker.Â Both make me smile, and are the best part of my day.
