As Eric (Nomadilly) pointed out to me, you can erase your old "edit" lines at the bottom when you update a message.

Let's see that pup!

RE: Boat Dogs

This was our Maggie, a Golden Retriever.* She loved the water and our Sea Ray, but never boarded the trawler.* Without a transom door, she was too old to board and, weighing 90 lbs, I was too old to hoist her on and off several times a day.*

Love seeing all your boat dogs.* PLEASE don't start a boat cat thread.* It's just not the same!* ;-)

RE: Boat Dogs

I believe Belgian barge dogs are scipperkes...Hollywood?
There used to be a Scipperke breeder in Annapolis who would only sell these dogs to cruising boat people. Some amazing stories of them being found hundreds of miles from land after being swept overboard.
A schipperkes job was to guard the cargo and wake the owners of the barges in the canals of europe. They only come in one flavor,Black.

*Sailor,

You are correct if in fact it is a Schip.* I was just*guessing Schip*form the picture. The Dutch boat or Barge dog is*the Keeshound. It is a lot larger dog*than the dog in the picture and they are a combination of grey, black and cream*colors. Not solid*black.

Here is the way the Schipperke*Parent Club describes their breeds history*on the AKC web site,

"A Look Back
The Schipperke originated in the Flemish regions of Belgium, bred down in size from a black sheepdog called the Leauvenaar. The breed worked as a companion of tradesmen as well as a watchdog and ratter on the river barges, which is where they got the name "Schipperke" since the Flemish word "schip" means boat. Another common nickname for the Schipperke is "Little Captain.""

They are good Ratters so they control Vermin on*boats as well.* Not as much a problem as in the old day due to how we store food I'm sure but an added plus none the less.

Boat Dogs

Well I guess I am the Grinch, I love*dogs but they do not fit our cruising style and they are so messy, unless you get the gerbil sized ones of course you can keep in a cage and on a treadmill. I've read some marvelous stories over the years regarding animals on the*sailing ships of yore. Geese, chickens, horses, cows, sheep and prisoners in the bilges. Maybe dogs aren't so bad after all. My wife says I am messier than our dearly departed Yellow Lab who got every cracker crumb off the floor. I miss a few.

We recently passed* on considering a vessel because*the leather settee had been trashed by the owner's pride and joy. They towed their dinghy to help the frequent shore trips - do not back towards your dinghy if you have line cutters was their advice.

There is a saying; "Faster than a Labrador Retriever can clear off an unattended counter top". They do love their vittles (and anyone else's). BioVac indeed.

RE: Boat Dogs

I love dogs! Until recently, I've had dogs all my life but I don't think it's fair for the dog to be cooped up on a boat for extended periods of time.

*Min Pin.* OK the perception in the picture wasn't good. But now I see he is standing on something which makes him look taller way back there.

They can be pretty tough as well.

Great dogs! keep 'em coming. *It looks like about 2/3 of us so far have boat dogs.

My vote for having the ugliest boat dog goes to Seahorse II.
