Passing of a Boat Dog.

One of the joys of SailNet in recent times has been the ongoing tale of the Dock Six Chronicles from our old friend Jones.

For the Fuzzy one that meant a bit more cos I confess that I somewhat fell for Jones' old mutt aka The Wookie. Well I'm extremely sorry to say that Jones informed me this morning that the great beast passed on last evening and I for one am reduced to a teary mess, how the Jones' themselves are I hate to think. Never met The Wookie, only knew her through pics and her occasional role on Dock Six but that dog had a great face. A face of a seriously good dog. A dog I really do wish I'd had the pleasure of a scratch of the belly and behind the ears. A dog that I just found out was a her not a him and her name was Inky.

Huzza and farewell yon Wookie.

Group hug for the Jones clan.
