Well we did have a COB (canine over board today) at the mooring. The dinghy will not hold 3 people safely so I had just rowed the first person back to the beach and had returned to the boat to finish putting it to bed. I had just tied the dinghy off to the boat when the dog slipped (jumped), no one saw her over board. She swam all around the boat finally got to the stern where she boarded the last rung of the swim ladder that is just about at sea level. She hung out there a minute or so before I got the dinghy setup to to retrieve her.

We learned that the hoop at the top of her life jacket and the boat hook don't match up too well so I'm going to have to work something else out.
