In my experience you guys forgot one thing about pugs -- they fart -- a lot.

My buddy has two and they can clear out a room. Hard to believe such a concentrated odor can come from such a small package. I can't imagine that smell inside a closed up boat on a hot, rainy august day.

John, your labradoodle is a real cutie, and Pappy I LOVE the name MonkeyButt! I can just see you calling him LOL!!!

Seriously, while all the caveats about labs are true I'd love to get another one. There's just something about those big goofy dogs. The problem is getting a 70lb dog up and down the companionway steps, especially when they get older.

We're currently dogless, but we keep bacon treats on board and every dog on the dock comes to visit us,
