I sorta thought people were too . . . . . . .

We have two animals that sail with us. The (small) dog loves every minute, even the dingy ride out to and back from the boat. He would be seriously pi$$ed if we left him behind.

The cat doesn't go with every time, only when we're away sailing for two days or more and he takes about the same amount of time to settle down as my wife. But then they're both fine.

Animals, like people, will get used to just about anything.
