This one in from Bob B. Beloved family member. Also brother driving boat.

In from Richard Gambino -Neptune holding court at Great Gun on Fire Island. "Where are my doggie bisquets servants?"

Don't worry, as your crew 'matures', he will act more like this on those special outings. A usually relaxing Gus and a bit more attentive Gracie. Randy Mueller "Starlight Express"

here's Travis and Ginger in Rhapsody. All pugs must wear PFDs, they don't float. Jack Dando

Captain Corbie at the wheel of Lady J II the first day of her complete restoration. Lady J II was originally built in 1990 to a Thames Slipper Launch design from the 1920's. The new owner, Judy Donnelly, wanted her rebuilt to Bristle and as you see from the other image of Capt Corbie, he was quite bored with all the details. The last image is of Lady J II a day before her first show. These days Lady J II is kept at San Diego Yacht Club, so we have no images of Capt. Corbie at the water front since he is just not a blue blazer kind of a dog. He prefers staying at the shop on the ranch with me. Oh, by the way, Capt. Corbie was rescued from a pet store after living there for the first 6 months of his life in a plastic cubicle. They said he was too cantankerous to sell. Now he spends most of his life in my shop or keeping the 5 other dogs in line. Not bad for a dog 1/7th their weight with 4 inch legs. From sunny San Diego, Cal. David Black and Capt. Corbie.

And this little crew member in from Annette Kjonno

And this one in from Robert Matson This is "Walleye" at the St. Paul,MN Antique & Classic Boat Show!

And to finish of today, the one, the only, the king of all Woody Barkers.

John and Kim Kadimiks Mr White "Best Dog Ever!"

    Gotta love dogs named after their boats, or vice versa. Mental note: someday own a dog named HAL.

    Neptune is an integral part of the crew. He’s in charge of barking at the seagulls and any fish flopping around on the deck. His biggest duty is sleeping in the kayak while I dig clams.

    I didnt float when I was younger, but I found eating more and exercising less solved that problem.

    OMG I am dizzy. At least the dogs are attached to boats. Next week we could have a contest who has the biggest dog, pre restoration. Before and after pictures, you can even include a picture of whatever pet you have. No boat in picture would not qualify. Matt don,t take up skydiving unless you are going to land in a boat. Let’s stay focused people.
