Pets. What do I do with my pet while I am out cruising?
Bert the Pirate
Bring them along, of course! We have always had dogs and they are right there with us.

Earlier in our cruising we lived aboard full time with two Labrador Retrievers, Fred and Chessie and now we have Bert, a Golden Doodle. Yes, they are big dogs but they are members of our family and cruise with us.

Bert needs to go on shore patrol a few times each day and that is not a chore but an adventure (even when it is raining). We launch the dinghy, pull it to the lower side deck and Bert jumps into the boat. As we head to shore we read the hailing ports on other boats anchored and they call out to us to swing by so they can "give the dog a bone". Never mind us, we're invisible. This is a great way to make new friends while cruising and your best friend gets to come along.

There are doggie and cat life jackets made specifically for our furry friends. Our favorites have handles like a suitcase to help in lifting them if they fall overboard.

We see a lot of dogs and cats aboard cruising boats but have also seen birds, turtles, frogs and a ferret.

You will be able to order this DVD coming soon, but if you are interested in getting more information today, please contact Captain Chris, or check our calendar to see Captain Chris at one of the many shows.
