Mailport October 2013 Issue

Mailport: October 2013


In regard to your request for recommended sailing dogs (PS blog, June 24, 2013): We sail with a Sheltie who puts up with a lot! Heís spent three winters cruising in the Bahamas with us and has the distinction of being the only one aboard who hasnít gotten seasick.

Bailey is the perfect size (about 18 pounds) to tuck under your arm when getting on and off the boat. We purposely try and keep him from jumping on or off the boat himself. He also doesnít mind using a potty mat, which makes cruising a whole lot easier. I wrote up some dog tips on my blog. Check them out:
