It's a Dog's World

First, I have some sad news to report.  Pamela had a job interview yesterday as a veterinarian technician and she got the job.   She's at work now, as I write this, as a matter of fact.  Sigh.  Oh well.  It looks like we're here for the long haul, "stuck" in Savannah.  :)

Well, these sunrises never get old anyway.

For those of you who are interested in minute details, Gertie and Chevy got new collars.

Gertie's has pirate skulls and crossed bones, appropriate for our pirate cat.  Arrrrr!  Chevy's old leather collar simply wore out, so Pam bought him a nice leather replacement.

He's such a funny dog.  He absolutely LOVED his new collar and smiled and wagged his tail happily as Pam put it on him.   Dogs like the simple things in life.  We can learn a lot from dogs.

Pamela decided she wanted to do something constructive with her day.  Why, I don't know.  She thought she'd polish the stainless steel around the boat in her bikini.



The latest routine that Pam and I have is to sit on the dock in front of our boat in the evening.   It's shady and cool, and we have a wonderful view of the Skidaway River.  We watch dolphins swim by and Great Blue Herons on the opposite bank.  We also enjoy watching the boat traffic pass by.

Again, we can learn a lot from dogs.

Chevy learned about pulling oysters off the pilings and eating them from Ruby. 

Ruby found a half full water bottle in the Whaler, which is tied up to the stern of Drift Away.  She loves water bottles.  She bites the cap off, spills the water out, and laps it up.

I guess this water is much better than the stale ol' stuff in her water dish.

I've been asked to write an article for a magazine about the liveaboard's perspective here at Isle of Hope Marina.  I hope I can come up with something more interesting than dogs eating oysters.


  1. I can think of a lot worse places to be STUCK! *sigh*

  2. What's more interesting than living on a boat watching your dogs adapt to the life we offer them. It's kept us entertained for years.
    We humans can be so arrogant... we think we are the top of the heap, after watching dogs and dolphins, amongst other living creatures... I'm not so sure of our status. We do have thumbs though.
    Good luck with your article, bet it'll be a good one.

  3. I still think there's a book here Dave.....
