New First Mate

Chairman Bow WowMy New First Mate

The search for a dog who would be small enough for a 30′ boat but tall enough to get around independently has ended with the happy crew addition of Austin, Rescue Dog Extraordinaire. Definitely Terrier, possibly Italian Greyhound (don’t say Chihuahua, please), Austin is smart enough to stay in bed when it’s cold or dark and he’s wrapped in a warm fleece blanket. At 17 pounds he can either be a lap dog or a little toughie. He is estimated to be 4 1/2 years old and has take to the boating life as if he were born for it. He arrived on September 7 and we have been very busy acclimating to each other ever since. In my new, Dog-Centric world I am seeking a job where he can stay at my side. Sanding and varnishing bright work appears to be that sort of job.

P.S. – We have determined that Austin is part Wild Dingo of Taiwan.
