Tom and Bess and ColonyCove, I am sorry for your loss. Our fur friends are so special and it isn't easy when they are gone.

I'd love to have some boating buddies to head off somewhere for a weekend together (not all the time, we like our solitude too), but people seem to wall themselves off down here. Perhaps they were that way up north too, I dunno.
Twisted71, we are in Cape Coral and have lots of boating friends. Send us a PM and we'll introduce ourselves.

Yes! Another Border Terrier, named Peanut. She'll be a small one, maybe only 11 pounds. Here's a photo from the day in November when we picked her up at the breeder's - 9 weeks old at the time.

What a cutie!

I've got a friend in Oregon who is never without a dog. When the current dog shows signs of aging a puppy is brought home - the theory is that the old dog will train the puppy...and it works.

Wow! That is a close match to our Zain!!

(Zain is 3/4 Pyrenees and 1/4 Lab...what kind is Dryade?)

Zain has webbed feet, so snow doesn't seem to build up so bad...it seems to fall out on its own.

Check out online dogsled supply stores, I seem to remember some sort of oily goop you could put on dogs feet to stop snow balls, and they would have dogsled booties as well.

Love your boat by the way...I am in lust with her

Hey Richard,
No current plans to head West but Big Duck is ready if we get the itch. We do plan on some Tennesee River around Chattanooga.

Methinks she has a determined look about her, you might have a very cute strong minded lady there.

Dogs - you bet!

We boated with 3 dogs for years. All of them eventually passed away. They each had their own personalities. Two of them were not afraid of rough water and one, the biggest of course, was terrified when it got rough. Taking them to shore all the time was a pain, but we did it.

One time my wife mistook pellet shrimp bait for dog food and fed it to them. They loved it of course, but it gave them the worst big-D ever!

Now we've gotten a little 10 lb Caron Terrier. We got her as a puppy and trained her to go on puppy pads, so we don't have to take her to shore. So far it is working out great.

And for those of you who boat with dogs and use a laptop to navigate, watch out. They are getting computer savvy these days.

Indeed she is determined and strong-minded. Our previous BT definitely had her own opinions as well, but mellowed out some after two years or so. Maybe we had somewhat forgotten what a little imp she was those first two years....

Well,

I don't have a dog, but New Years weekend it was just me and this furball for 4 days as an experiment on the boat. We were at war for the first two days, then he won! He might make a good boat lion when we do the livaboard thing. At least I don't have to worry about peeing, pooping on the deck....

Well with those water wings he would float awhile so the shark could get a good bite.

Up here we call the little dogs and cats eagle bait!

Nice Dogs ----- Our Dog is a Miniature Daschund... Lucy has not as yet experienced our new boat so that excitement is yet to come-- we have a lifejacket for her.... Anyone heard of the system someone developed that involved artificial/real grass ....... hitting the shore twice a day is not a big thing but I'm wondering if anyone has discovered an alternative..................... Go Lucy Go !!!!! jp
