I feel the need to warn you of other consequences of dogs living on boats...
Because our mutt can't climb the companion way stairs, we now have a doggie door (a recycled 8" Lewmar hatch) to allow access from the quarter berth to the cockpit.
Because the jump from the floor to the quarter berth was a little bit high, we now have a custom shelf/step.
Because my tool shelf under the table feels like a dark den, my tools must find another home.
I could go on, but you get the idea.
