Theodore Trueheart (Teddy) would rather be sailing By Judi McLeod
Monday, November 13, 2006
Truly named is the irrepressible Theodore Trueheart, pictured above on one of his good hair days.
Theodore Trueheart is well named, because he comes at you straight from the heart.
But dont expect him to answer to anything but Teddy or Ted because Theodore Trueheart is only the name on his pedigree papers, and the always ready to gambol Teddy, much more casual than that, is one of the guys.
Brine is in his blood. Teddy took to the sea as a mere pup, and longs to be right on deck anytime his master `mascot pulls up anchor.
If Teddy had a favorite song, definitely it would be Anchors Away. If he had his doggie druthers, dolphins would be his primary playmates.
Almost three years old, Teddy is a silver, eyes-full-of-soul poodle. They call him a toy poodle, but hes nobodys toy, says his full time companion, Americas number one independent radio talk show host Dr. Michael Savage. Hes a full blown DOG and as intelligent as any Ive ever had or met.
While other dogs are content burying bones in the back garden, Teddy prefers the wind in his face, and the tang of salt water in the air.
Let those other landlubber canines dream about treats and treeing squirrels. Thats sissy stuff for Theodore Trueheart, whose nocturnal dreams keep his black velvet nose aquiver for Long John Silver, buried treasure and messages in a bottle.
The sea rocked Teddy to sleep when he was still a pup and one of his most endearing pictures finds him asleep on the canvas of the flying bridge.
Must be the sound of the diesel engines and the gentle rocking he likes, says Savage. He also loves to try and grab the lines as I untie them to a cleat. Ted thinks its a game, not really part of the yachting experience.
Theres always been a special understanding between Ted and Michael. And when theyre sailing into the sunset, they enjoy the comfortable silence of true companionship.
Theres nothing yippy or yappy about this tail-wagging sailor.
When he wants in, its a single, Woof, Savage said on one of his recent Savage Nation radio shows. Teddy knows a single Woof will get him what he wants.
Besides, yipping and yapping is below the dignity of a serious sailing gent.
In this happy master and dog companionship, Savage describes himself as Michael, Teddys mascot.
While other traveling canines like to be in the car, its Teddys second choice. Cadillacs, BMWs and Mercedes Benzes are lost on him because even the sleekest of wheels dont come with sea spray.
Out on the highway all you can see is other cars, and fleeting pictures of roadside trees going by.
Every scrap of seaweed, every seashell with a pink as delicate as the pink inside his own ears are much more interesting to scout out along the shoreline.
To the forever-exploring Teddy, rolling happily in dead fish perfumes the air much better than anything that comes in a Paris bottle.
Seafaring fellows like Teddy learn so much more than those that loll on land.
Theres a sense of pure freedom that comes from leaving the land behind you, and an incomparable comfort knowing that your mascot is right there beside you.
He now knows the bark of seals, the cry of the gulls, the sweep of pelicans and the sight of cormorants.
Says his mascot of the lovable Teddy: Hes my one and only skipper-key.
A sailing story about Teddy to celebrate good news for the young sailor!!

Rock ‘n Roll Friday.
Mikey should do a whole show of just music sometime!!
Play the video at the link below - it will bring you to tears
Tina Brown is a British born former editor of New Yorker magazine that did an article on Savage that he often brags about.
What were some of those old Star Trek jokes about black holes?
Oh, yeah.... the one about why toilet paper is like the starship Enterprise....
That's funny, I don't recognize any of the actors in this photo................
I like the way Savage plays idiot callers like an angler.
Bush and Cheney created rap music.
I heard somewhere that Bush and Cheney created Star Trek conventions.
... and Renaissance festivals....
So who are “Zelig and Wallbanger” ???
wallbanger is hannity.
zelig = ??
I thought he had some Irish insult for Hannity.
I own one. I sent in 10 bucks and ten kellog's corn flake coupons. They ran out and had to re-order. But luckily, I got mine. It's really slick. Not your usual cotton. Something like a satin of sorts. Wrinkle-proof.
P.S. No, you can’t have it. It has the ‘touch to talk’ logo. I’m afraid to tall Scotty to beam me up. I don’t know where I’ll end up at. Would be just my luck to end up on Tau Ceti where I jilted a lover. She is very vengeful and has been chasing me all over the universe. My ‘warp speed’ command has saved me from her clammy clutches many times. I say clammy as an apt description for someone from Tau Ceti, in the mouth of Ceti (the whale).
By the way. I just got my license plate for a used car I bought 10 months. You’ll never guess what it is. I’ve been driving around on paper dealer’s certificate all this time and have never been stopped for expired plates. Lucky, huh. Perhaps my luck might change, now that I put my new plates on the car. LETTER,LETTER,LETTER - 666. No kidding.
mom’s gallblader out this a.m. we hope this takes care of the problem.
dunno when she will be out of the hospital yet.
