We were saddened to lose our beloved senior canine crew member Dyna on May 14, 2013. She will never be forgotten and will always be in our hearts. We remember her on the masthead picture of her and Dylan as they began their TakingPaws adventures. You can share a glimpse of her extraordinary life onboard in the TakingPaws archives or her memorial posting.
Karen and Jeff have logged some 25,000 nautical miles cruising between Maine, Key West, the Bahamas, and now the Great Loop (EAGLE) on their DeFever 53RPH named aCappella. Our crew are our yellow labrador retriever dogs - Dylan and puppy Dee Dee. Dylan (Celtic god of the waves) is 6 years old and is the grandson of Dyna. Dyna is also the great-great-grandmother of both of Dee Dee's parents, hence Dee Dee for Dyna on both sides. Our blog and our adventures center around the voyages we take together generally through the eyes of our crew.
