The good news: Wembley hasn’t had a seizure in six weeks. The bad news: pointing that out was probably like mentioning a no-hitter in the seventh inning and I’ll probably regret it.*

Trivia: the breeder from whence Fenway came? Either Junior Seau’s sister or cousin, I don’t remember which. That’s like eight, maybe nine, degrees of separation.

* ADDED: I just want to add  that no one thinks Wembley’s seizures are genetic. It seems to be a chemical imbalance that we are dealing with. I’d get another one just like him from the same breeder in a heartbeat. Much as I have loved all the ones who came before him (Cooder, Satchmo, Beckham, and even Fenway) he’s been the best ‘bassety‘ basset we have ever had. He’s a pain in the ass, but he’s a wonderful pain in the ass.
