Sialia's point about some breeds not being welcome in some otherwise dog friendly areas is a good one.... especially since the dogs in question are "bull terriers" which are often classified as undesirable, vicious fighting dogs... aka pit bulls.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sialia, Thank you so much. That is the exact information I needed! Both of my dogs are english bred so breed requirments should not be to much of a problem in most places " hopefully". Thanks again Arlette

these dogs are not considered vicious. Staffordshire bull terriers are known as the nanny dog due to the love of children and are the # 2 dog in great britian. they are not pitbulls!!!!! pitbulls were not even a recognized breed until the 1990s. These dogs have been bred and loved in europe for hundreds of years. they are not considered dangerous and a stupid american labeling any dog with bull in its name is typical. Drug dealers do not fight dogs that cost $1500 minimum. you can get a pitbull $300 bucks or less.

That's not THE nanny dog....THIS IS the nanny dog....sorry....









Mam, I have been sailing for over 30 years, had dogs for over 40 years...I do not take them on the boat..its not fare on them...no matter how you love them and they love you....if only they could talk....

Ask someone here to tell you what happened when I took the big fella on the boat, my boat is 42' long with a lot, a lot a lot of deck....

Taking him on my boat would be presuming on a friendship, and that...I don't do.

Best point made yet in this faith-based, and therefore pointless, thread.

I find this very funny. My husbands mother raised old english sheep dogs and was bit by one as a child. He says they tend to be inbred. maybe that is why he is not well suited for the boat not to mention the dog hair
