Two dogs. Big black one, Victor, we got on purpose as a pup. White one Kodie was inherited from daughter. Victor is 14 and can not hop over logs anymore so no more beach landings. Marinas til he leaves us. I can't imagine getting another dog as nice and good as Victor. Kodie is cute but a pain sometimes...http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/a...1&d=1354768065

Kodie looks to be a spitz.

Scrappy, our Border Terrier, served as an active crew member every one of her 14 summers. She spent nearly 1/4 of her life onboard.

My wife would love to take her two black Pugs on the boat but I don't for two reasons:
1. They're too stupid to not just walk off the swim platform or jump off a cockpit seat while underway and we'd never be able to get back to them in time to rescue them. I'm not sure she'd ever forgive herself if one of them drowned.
2. They shed black hair all the time. Not a good thing in a boat with a light color interior.

Beachcomber is a "Pet Hair Free Zone" and going to stay that way.

American Eskimo Dog. Also known as an Eskie. They are of the Nordic Dog (Spitz like) family. They come in three different sizes a lot like Poodles, 9"to 12" Toy, over 12" up to and including 15" Miniatures and over 15 up to and including 19" Standard.

But then again who knows?

Desi is a 10 year old Beagle Bluetick mix. Hes a hunting dog that hates guns and fireworks. Probably the reason someone dumped him on the road, their loss. He loves dinghy rides. He is very content on the boat. I just wish he would pee in the scuppers.

We didn't have a dog for the first 40 years of marriage - my wife is terribly allergic to animals.

On a charter out of Anacortes, we were tied up to a dock for the night. A dog appeared on the deck of a boat across from us. I looked at him - he looked at me, then he said, "Get a dog like me" -- and we did.

He is a Golden Doodle...doesn't shed and is hypo-allergenic. They come in 3 sizes; 25, 50 and 90 lbs. We got the middle size and call him Merlin. He's been the perfect companion.

Merlin says Hey to Scrappy.

If I were a dog, I would hope my owner was a boater. All the dogs I see at my marina seem happy to be there.

The other side: One of the boaters on my dock has three or four small dogs and they run unsupervised up and down the dock. One pees on every cleat with a dock line on it. Luckily, they are around only a few times each year.

Tom T. Hall. The guy was a poet. He wrote poetry into country music. So did Roger Miller.

She is. They are now called American Eskimo. Due to bad feelings about Germany after WWII. She is very smart.

Interesting. We had one when I was a kid. We called her an Eskimo spitz. Her name was Snowball. Our Troy is a Klein Spitz or German Spitz. They are sometimes called a Victorian pomeranean. Klein spitz is German for small spitz.

From American Eskimo website: "The change from “Spitz” to “Eskimo” may be explained by the political climate in the United States during World War I. “Spitz” is a German work that means “sharp point” and was used to describe northern dogs with pointed muzzles, erect ears, curled tails and double coats, and it has been suggested that the name change was an attempt to distance the breed in America from its German origins."

The difference between a Klein Spitz and a Pom is as you pointed out. The ears are more pointed, and the nose is a little longer. Whatever Troy is he is a dear little soul.

You are absolutely right about great dogs on this thread. I love them all. It warms the heart to see dogs so loved by their people.
