Hiya Sidders. Hope you like sitting under tables in pubs.

You look lovely and at home. Get your sea legs asap.

We took him for a short cruise yesterday and he seemed happy enough on the boat. 

Not sure what he will make of a blast down the Trent or being at sea though! Guess we will find out soon enough. 

Need to find out if he can swim as well before too long.

He'll be able to swim, how well is another issue. George the Staffie was useless. Just his snout visible whilst his legs were going like the clappers.

Cobblers!  A boat with a dog is smelly and hairy and full of people with an agenda that is driven by the (need to walk the ) dog.  :)

He will look a bit different when we pick him up tonight. He's had short back and sides today :)

Just need to get some meat on him now as under all that fluff he is skin and bones.

Give us 6-8 weeks and he will look a different dog. 

Hopefully the vets check up on Thursday won't show up any hidden nasty surprises.

At least ours won't be hairy. It doesn't shed :D

If there is any doubt at all about his swimming abilities, and particularly on rivers, I would strongly recommend a suitable life jacket.

It's not just about flotation, but the good ones also usually feature a strong handle that allows you to lift them out like a suitcase.  OK, yours is a small dog, but they can b surprisingly hard to get out.  Our big Lab is an excellent swimmer, but trying to haul him out where there is a high side is a very different matter!

He looks lovely, even though he isn't a proper dog. You don't have to bend down to stroke a proper dog :P

Is he a rescue, and if so do you his history?

I`ve been put off further by having a dog on board after this last week. One of my sons and his family Springer Spaniel were with us for a week. The dogs insistence in being behind you at every turn (dangerous for a 70+ not so agile soul like me!)  and the fact that he continued his habit when at our home, in peering into the fish pond in the hope I assume in catch one, meant that he continually hung overboard in a perilous manner, either bow or stern whilst underway, obviously waiting to catch that fish. Some attempts were made to catch floating flotsam. I am a nervous wreck.

No idea of his history.
