Boat Dog!

Today was the big day! The day that Charlie got in his boat.

"What the heck is this thing?"

"Hey, fishy fishy fishy... are you still under there?"

It required stairs (thanks, Robin & Lavonne).

Yes, treats were involved.

Yes, it took two of us encouraging, cajoling, and assisting.
And, yes, he was scared; shaking even as he wagged.


But he did it. And, most importantly, he liked it!

Checking out the lines

Checking out the cabin

"Just call me Cap'n Charlie!"

"Let's GO!"

You are SO lucky to have your very own boat! You look like you had a great time.I go on the boat with my Dad sometimes, we fish and i do the sniff and lick test on every fish he catches.. I get so excited when my life jacket comes out because i know that means we are going sailing!

Have fun!

We are so proud of you, Charlie.
That was very brave. Now you can go out on the water and see a brand new world. Take lots of pictures.
