Well now, I've just finished a nice little trip from the Virgins to Tampa. We saw humpback whales off the Silver Bank which were exceedingly impressive as they breached and blew quite close to the boat.
What was interesting though was the crew, consisting of a pretty daughter and two dogs
- all of which belonged to the owner.
The two dogs
, house-trained ashore, could not understand that it was ok to pee and poop. My heart bled for them for the first two days as they wandered around the boat, looking miserable, with their legs crossed and their eyes watering...
By day 3, the necessaries just had to be done. After much praise and assurances that it was ok, two much happier pooches began enjoying the trip.
I'm still not completely convinced about the wisdom of having dogs onboard though......
