Sailor's children have too many accomplishments to list.

From the first and second generations, pictured here are Ch. Valeska Notorious, JC (Saiga);
Ch. Valeska Chase Clouds Away, CGC(Blake);
and Ch. Valeska Black-eyed Susan (Suzy). All three are open field pointed.
Saiga lived to be 11 1/2, Blake lived to a venerable 13 1/2, and Suzy was 12.
They all passed away within a short time of each other. I wish they had stayed with me forever.

The following quote suits her well:
"Life is not a journey from the cradle to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- WOW -- What a Ride!"
