And a couple of Woody Bowser shots from our friend Harry Wilson in Muskoka Lakes, Canada. Harry commented “Texx – You gotta LOVE the Woody Barker theme this week… We hope it’s not too late to get a couple of our favorites shots in.”
His name was Polar. He was a Chow-Retriever mix. We got him at the Indianapolis Humane Society at about 1-1/2 year old. We had him before we were married. He was a saint of a dog. Brought out everybody’s best side.
I had to put him to sleep when he was about 11, in 2007. We all miss him. The pic leaning over the seat back was taken en route to Mackinac Island from Hessel. It shows those ears floating in the wind. Something very peaceful about watching a dog loving the lake air.
The photo below shows his soulful eyes. He could look right into you with wonderful empathy.
Now you might be thinking that’s not a woody boat. And you’re right. It’s our 1998 Cobalt 232. Gorgeous lines. It will be a classic. Meanwhile take comfort knowing it came with the optional genuine wood dash. – Alex
