The squirrel, the seventh in a line of Twiggies going back to the late 1970s, is on a farewell tour due to the retirement of its owner, Lou Ann Best. She started performing with water-skiing squirrels with her husband, Chuck Best, who died in a drowning accident in 1997.

Lou Ann spends a substantial part of her performance educating spectators about water safety.
