Sailing with dogs is sandy business if you like to go to the beach. Farley, our wheaten terrier, is the colour of sand, and maybe we should have called him Sandy.
He loves to dig a hole and hide in it. He’ll sit perfectly still and make us play the Where’s Farley game. I think he might actually be making fun of us, but who knows?
If you’re thinking of cruising with a dog, an outside freshwater hose is a must. Ours is on the back step of our catamaran. Farley gets a rinse before he’s allowed passed the stairs. Then he gets a rub down with a towel. That’s the other item we brought . . . Farley has his own set of towels. One more little thing to keep us all happy.
