When we had Tadworth we had a rare old dog called Scruff. He liked to sit on the back cabin and used to walk along the top planks to the bows, turn round and come back.

I had a daughter and a dog that both did that.

Problem in many places was the steel piling which meant he couldn’t get out so much backing up.

This is the reason our Ship's Dog wears a (Baltic - others are available) buoyancy aid even though she's a lab and swims like a fish - it's the lifting handle in the middle of her back that's the important bit.

Snap. We bought Simon's Baltic in anticipation of the one being provided by the hire boat yard being rubbish. And we were right the one they provided was cr@p.

My children brought our Scruff home announcing he was free to a good home dad. They wanted to called him sweep after sooty and sweep but one look was enough so he was scruff. Great boat dog and very well known in Braunston! The children left home but left the dog with us, he died aged 16 which was amazing considering the scrapes he got into.
