I've met more than one Skipperkie owner who had no clue their dogs were bred for work on barges.

Shammie? That dog should be called Shippie. It looks like a Greek Sea Captain

When he smiles he has a gold front tooth. After I showed Shammie his picture I had to keep the computer locked as she was using our entire data plan on the net. Also a picture of her old boat.

Pura Vida, I`m so easily taken with a sweet older dog, slightly vulnerable, totally trusting. A gold tooth, good on you! May you and Shammie have many years together.

New boat dog

Adopted a rescue in October. Seems to be adjusting to boating. Not real thrilled with riding in the dinghy to get to shore for potty breaks. We meant to set up a pee spot before we anchored out for the first time with him. We were so excited we fixed our windlass last weekend that we forgot all about the pee spot when we decided to anchor this weekend.

The picture was taken on the ski boat.

Hi Jim,

Nice pooch & dinghy...what kind are they?

Here's Zain, the Beach Master, languishing on a rock watching over his herd (that would be us). The stuff hanging on his collar are old strike plates from door jams; they make enough noise when he's moving through the bush that bears hear it and move away quietly...well...so far anyways.

Just came across these three shots while cleaning out one of my drives. First shot is our previous dog, RJ (named for R.J. Mitchell), second shot is our current dog Albi (named after the city in France where the fellow our PNW boat is named for was from) when he was just a puppy. Last shot is RJ and Albi playing on a beach in the San Juans.

Albi is now 11 years old.

We had both dogs together for two years until RJ died and it was impressive to see how much Albi learned from RJ. Swimming, for example. RJ and our previous dog, Brandy (same breed for all three) took a long time to decide to start swimming, almost a year in the case of Brandy.

The first time we took Albi out on the boat he was nine weeks old. He and RJ were playing on the beach and I threw a stick out in the water for RJ to fetch. Albi ran back and forth at the water's edge for a few moments as he watched RJ swim out to the stick and finally couldn't stand it any more and plunged in and started swimming, too.

What breed are those? They don't quite look like Brittanys or Goldens. Beautiful pooches.

Molly is unique amongst mammals in that she has, through some throwback gene from her ancient reptilian ancestors, a series of plates not unlike those found on the bottom of Gecko's feet which allow her to affix herself to the pilothouse ceiling for afternoon naps.

They are the smallest of the purebred retrievers. The maximum weight for a male is about 50 pounds. In size, they compare to a working UK Border Collie.

The breed was developed in Nova Scotia in the later 1800s for a method of bird hunting that uses a dog to first attract the birds into gun range, in the air or on the water, and then goes out and retrieves any that are shot. The concept was originally developed in northern Europe. They used a very different kind of dog but the idea migrated across the Atlantic.

The method of using the dog in this way is rather unique but is very effective. The method is called "tolling." One can accomplish the same thing with a white rag on the end of a long stick, but the stick won't go out and fetch the birds.

In the late 1940s or early 50s the breed was named the offical dog of Nova Scotia. At that point it was given a very long and tedious name. I much prefer the breed's original name, which is derived from the place in Nova Scotia that is said to have been where the breed was created. So I use this name, which is Little River Duck Dog. But most people, indluding most owners of this breed, wouldn't have a clue what I was talking about.

The offcial name is (deep breath), Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

We have never shown our dogs so have never been interested in acquiring one for that purpose. But Albi's father, Don, was a Grand Champion in Canada.

The photo below is of Albi's father in his heyday, and gives you a much better idea of what the breed looks like when it's groomed up rather than all wet and sandy on a boat. If we polished up Albi and groomed him appropriately, he would look exactly like his dad.

Jenny is a "Bulkley Retriever"...actually she's a Sooner. Sooner be a dog than anything else. I call her a Bulkley Retriever because she's from a rescue outfit called Turtle Gardens near Topley in the Bulkley Valley. There's a bunch of dogs from there that look just like her.

The Skiff is by Sterling boats. It's okay but it's minimal as a fishing platform.

10 week old Lab and new member of the Emily Anne crew, Bos'n, reported for training last week. Our 9 year old Lab, Reacher, will be leaving us soon due to prostate cancer, although Bos'n has instilled some new life into him.

This picture is of our Maddie who unexpectantly passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 12. In the background is the old boy who is pushing 17 and I think will outlive me.
