Tug Boat – The Ultimate Boat Dog
After we lost our beloved “Buddy” last May, we said that we’d NEVER get another dog. It just didn’t make sense because we want to spend more time cruising on our boat and big, hairy dogs are just too much trouble.
About 6 months after Buddy died, Michelle and I realized that we are “Dog People” and we missed not having a pet in our lives. Michelle did the research and we finally decided that a great dog for us, at this point in our lives would be a Miniature Schnauzer . Enter “Tug Boat Haley.”
Tug Boat is 8 months old now and we couldn’t be happier to have him in our lives. I didn’t realize how much we missed not having a dog in our lives until we got Tug, but we were a bit nervous that he wouldn’t take to the boat.
After our recent Gulf Crossing, I’m happy to report that Tug Boat is the Ultimate Boat Dog. He has quickly adapted to life aboard the boat. We’ve trained him to use a Welcome Mat as his bathroom and he seems to be quite comfortable with us aboard Double Wide. Yippee!
