Many of you have asked us how the dogs have adjusted or “like” sailing so here are a few pictures we snapped of our furry friends and hope they tell the tale with a few words. Oh my… Taco! did you see there’s water all around us?
It really was a lot like this! Harley was nervous and easily scared and Taco took to it like everything else in his life. Just another day. They did well and we kept them in the cockpit while we were underway which made Harley really nervous. He finally climbed down in the cockpit floor and hunkered down there by our feet. Taco slept in his pillowcase sleeping bag under the dodger atop the doghouse. Neither one got sick.
They will be getting their own life preservers. It just makes sense to spend $15/ea to make sure they at least can stay afloat until we can fish them out of the water. I’m pretty sure Taco will leap in at least once! Of course, he probably won’t have it on then! We are thinking a long handled sturdy fishnet for a rescue/fishing net might be good to keep on hand!
