gwkiwi, my condolences for the loss of Kai. Holly, my last of 6 Shepherds (though there was perhaps a touch of kelpie) left us in September, nearly 14. It gets easier, but it takes a while.

So sorry for your loss . Our four legged friends are such great companions!

Here's our dog crew, Cody and Cailee. Both have grown up on the boat.

Yes they do indeed have a way of getting close to us. It is really tough losing one. Here is Troy crossing the Gulf Stream.

Zain is our 130lb Beach Master; if he hops off the dinghy relaxed we know there are no bears close by. He doesn't chase anything in the bush, and even stood beside me watching two wolves harass a bull, cow, and calf moose only a couple hundred yards away. Best bush dog in the world! The Yorkies of course, are just plain nuts.

The Admiral reminded me that it wasn't fair to show Stella (the pug) and not Morgan (the lab / springer) so here's one more. Except for the constant cleaning of hair, they really bring a lot of enjoyment to an outing, don't they?

Sorry to hear that Bruce.

Maybe we should have a thread solely for our ex boat mates, four legged not two, 'Great Laker' take note!

We have a real Labrador and a Maine Coon who thinks he's a Labrador. Both had a tough day apparently.
