Getting Ready at Cooley's Landing

Hot in the sun, cool in the shade
Hi there and welcome to my world. My name is Chip and I am a seadog. I live aboard the Talespinner with the Captain. We're getting ready for our big voyage to the Bahamas, and I think we're gonna be leaving pretty soon. Sometimes I get nervous that I'm not going to get to go - like when the engine starts up. It makes lots of noise and I run and hide in the forepeak.

The Captain and I brought the boat up to this cool marina on a river. There's lots of grass and big trees with squirrels and pigeons. Any time I go ashore, I run really fast and clear them out with one bark. They take off like, well, squirrels and pigeons. It's awesome.

The captain is getting ready to take off to go buy more stuff. I sleep while she's gone. Then when she comes back and starts putting away all the groceries and parts, I have to supervise. I especially have to watch where she puts the doggy treats!

May the wind always be full of good smells!

I am a one-eyed, mixed-breed terrier, a son of a bitch from the Caribbean, born during a hurricane in 1995. I live and sail aboard the 33-foot Caliber sloop TALESPINNER with the Captain, however, this summer, the Captain has me off sailing with Bruce on his boat WILD MATILDA. [...]
Extra: I would love to get comments from anyone - other dogs, cats, birds, snakes, ferrets -- even humans -- I'm not prejudiced.
