My husband and I bring our Miniature Poodle, Jäger, pretty much everywhere we go. When we took to the high seas recently for what was to be my first sailing experience, it was only natural to take him along on the excursion.
Poodles are water dogs, but Jäger doesn’t know how to swim yet, so we bought him a snazzy doggie life jacket – a good idea even for dogs that swim.
Jäger adapted to the boat easily. After we hoisted the sails and cut the engine, he seemed content to watch passing seagulls and sniff the briny ocean air. The first time we heeled over, he looked at me in alarm, but soon settled in when he realized all was well.
By the time we headed back into the harbor, he was relaxed enough to pose for a quick photo so I could have a memento from his first day at sea.
