Avast There, Ye Landlubbers

Pappy and Polly at the Bay, 2007-01-06No, this isn't a photo of us fulfilling our New Year's resolution to get Pappy to the ocean-- it's just a simulation. We did a test run on his sea-worthiness by visiting his dog cousin Polly by the Chesapeake Bay during the freakishly warm weather. The results look promising... a nautical theme suits him, he just needs a little sailor outfit.

He has nice long legs - looks like a natural born swimmer!

Pappy, you look ready for the ocean!

Polly is a beautiful dog! We might be a little biased ...

Yup, Pappy has the sleek physique of a natural born swimmer. Some nautical wear, perhaps from L.L. Bean, would be jaunty and oh-so-New-England!!

You could take Pappy's pix to one of those virtual try on pages on Land's End or??? and see how he would look in a nice pair of khakis and boat shoes. My dad has boat shoes and they smell delicious.

Ahh Papster, did you go INTO the water? Or even perhaps touch it? Ellie would be more than happy to introduce you to the world of water. And the art of diving...no matter how cold it might be or time of year. Especially if there is a ball involved.

Enjoy, 3dogs

Dachsies,
She is a beautiful dog, and, yes, you are biased.

Buster,
He's got big webbed paws, but he's got no body fat. So far he's only experimented with wading around.

Bella and Gus,
Thanks for the pointers to the yacht wear. Maybe some nice whale pants would be nice for cocktail hour. I'll have to see about that virtual modeling option.

3dog,
Diving in would mean getting his topsiders wet. He's not crazy.
