Underway!

Red Head has finally thrown off the lines and headed out! Dora’s first official cruise. OK, so maybe it’s not a trip around the world - only 10 miles down river to Shady Harbor Marina. Still, we’re calling it.


Dylan and Dee Dee fell right into line as soon as they heard the engines start. Dora had to be coaxed up to the pilothouse with a treat. She’ll catch on. 


Dora found it a little hard to settle down. There’s just too darn much to see.


But she did eventually cuddle up with her fellow crew members.


Red Head starts her summer cruise with the help of Dylan, First Mate. 


Dee Dee, Second Mate. 


And the newest member, hoping to soon reach Provisional Third Mate, Dora.

  
Dora did great with just one little issue. She is fearless. Literally. That'll be a future blog entry. Mom has to calm down first...

Congrats on Dorset first voyage, can only imagine what the fearless act might be.

That Dora definitely looks like she has something up her sleeve.

Ever since my husky girl, Kit, jumped off a bridge during a hike I hesitate whenever we want to take her out. I’m always checking the route for “similar conditions” now. She appeared less shaken up than me actually. I will never forget it. Good thing dogs are pretty darn tough. -Leslie W

Beth, Yes, that is it.

Hi Leslie - There are times I just close my eyes...
