There comes a time in all stories where dogs fit in perfectly. Now is the time for the story of the "Boat Dogs". Now, most people equate boats with cats, parrots, mice etc. But in our world dogs rule. We do have a parrot on board but that is another story.
Bella, as pictured above has a way with pics. She just seem to like the camera. Quite like her mistress, Denise. While this picture is not aboard 0 Regrets it does express her personality. Just an adventurous girl!
Bailey, as pictured above, is happy with her ball. She will retrieve the ball till she would drown. She is learning to climb the swim ladder to the boat and someday will enter the transom.
Now this is the temp captain. Bella seems to love riding in the Captain's chair during the cruise. She is a bit nervous until in the chair. I do wish she could stand a watch while I could take a nap.
Now, this is team swimming. Bailey has a piece of wood in her mouth, she will retrieve anything. I am trying to teach her to retrieve a beer. The life guard is Adm. Denise. Swimming with the girls is a challenge.
The above picture is their typical cruising position. They are on the fly bridge just relaxing while the Captain is working at the helm. They do prefer Buffet on the sounds.
Now this is a curious dog. Bella is on foredeck peeking into the cabin from the forward window hatch. At times we have seen Bailey enter from this window to the galley in search of food.
While the above pic is on the earth, it remains one of my favorites. After all, all my best girls are in the picture. Happy times on board or on the beach. My girls make cruising complete.
Capt. Barry along with Adm. Denise and deckhands Bella and Bailey.
