Glad you knew I was only kidding.


I think one of my favorite science fiction novels which was made into a movie starring a young Don Johnson was… “A Boy and his Dog”.


Made me a believer in being kind to animals and to name my first dog “Blood”

Regarding Upgrade

That's a funny shot!
What a shame we don't know whats going on in that little head.
With a face like that I see the beginning of a classic cartoon.
The carnivore watchdog could be his best friend. He'd have a new body part to chew on every morning.

Love it!

The sailing adventures of cruising dogs!

Of course my imagination is always in gear. Nothing else, just my imagination.

She's a good girl......

I mostly do coastal cruising, so we have walks/playtime on the islands 2-3 times a day (I do pick up after both dogs). She does have a box of astroturf but has only used it once on our way to Abaco from the Keys.

A little off topic, but what are you holding down with that blue tape?

Cardboard

Boat was in the yard for a while..workers put it there to protect the treads for me...I took it off after the next sail as they got wet.

I'm relativity a passive person if it ain't broke don't fix it kind of guy with most things anyway (unimportant things)...it would still be there if it hadn't gotten wet...any ware and tear prevention is a good thing right..

I have carpet velcro'd to the steps just as a little footing for the dogs. When It gets dirty just mesh bag it over the side and good as New!

That's what a lot of my Naval friends did while in service. They would put all of their dirty laundry in a mesh bag and let it trail the boat for a while. Then when pulled back in, their suits were whiter then white. Never tried it myself but heard the same story from different sailors.
