In memory of Popcorn, found on the street in the summer of 1997 by Judy and Steve Bass. With her unique coloring and spots, we told everyone she was an Australian chicken herding dog; actually her vintage was probably Dalmatian and terrier. She was the most independent, tough, and rebellious dog we ever owned. She lived to run and she ran like hell. We know that Popcorn is now zipping through the surf, chasing birds on Rincon’s beach and racing around Victory park, teasing other dogs into chasing her. She has energy and strong legs, has no pain, and is the happiest dog in the world. Popcorn gave us 16 years of incredible pleasure (well, mostly) and we’ll miss her—and are missing her—terribly.
