Jack Across The Water

Hello All,

Mom and Donna took me on the ferry last Monday in a great rain storm to see "Jack Across the Water" in Connecticut for a plucking. Now most of you might be saying what is so great about being out on a boat in a rain storm. The wind was howling the sea's were rocking and so was the ferry. Donna was getting a little queezy sitting in the cabin so her and Mom decided to go sit outside under the overhang. A-A-A-A the smell of that salt spray was just too much, I had to get a better whiff, so I tugged and tugged until Mom gave me more lead.

There I was out there in the spray with the wind blowing through my scruffy coat. Can you picture a wooden carving of me on the front of those old wooden sailing ships?

The following weekend I helped Mom wash off all the salt from the Jeep.

Dad went out to check on the sailboat and work has finally begun on replacing our fuel tank. Mrs. Sailor Dance aka Mom went out there a couple of weeks ago to find out what was the hold up. Squeaky wheel gets the oil. Hopefully I'll be sailing again soon.

Oh boy, Luna!

You are so brave. I don't know how you do it. I would be sea sick for sure.

How did you make out at the groomer's? Were they upset about all the salt water in your fur?

Lots of Koobuss Kissees,
Koobie

No the groomer was fine, I was dry when we got there. There are two post plucking pictures of me in the Bubbleshare slide show. They are the ones of me on the grass.
