Aw come one SD, you love it when people revive dead threads. Your life would be incomplete otherwise.

Did they take the dogs or not ? The mad woman herself did reappear for a second or two sometime last year to inform the rest of us that we were all a bunch of losers and her and her dogs were on their way. (Hopefully never to return).

ps - SD, Staffordshire Bull Terriors in fact. While I am not a fan of the breed at all, if you have to have a Bully, then a Staffy is the one to get. Fabulous on a boat cos given their overall buoyancy and swimming expertise you have a great dinghy anchor on hand.

A sailnet BLAST FROM THE PAST!

Contrary to Dog, I think this is one thread that should be revived every year, or at least read by every sailnet member. It's the prototypical example of why there's an Off Topic forum. (you can go over to the AFOC thread there and tell somebody to just stuff it!) And it's the perfect example of how sailnet members are not going to give you an erroneous answer just to make sure your feelings are not hurt. It's also a pretty good example of someone abusing the time and consideration of people willing to relay their experiences while refusing to grant them the least bit of respect for doing so. Oh, it's also a hilarious thread too!

Just another shameless promotion for sways afoc thread.

You will learn much, much more by reading "effectiveness of solar & wind" aka THE solar thread or solar stik thread, found in Gear & Maintenance. Extremely important in the development of sailing knowledge for any and all.

For the record, I bought my first sailboat in 1999, and I owned a bull terrier from 1986-2001. Note the two-year cross-over. The bull terrier was a great dog, and wasn't so large (about 50 pounds) that he couldn't fit onto a 33-footer, but never once did it occur to us that this was a good idea.

Instead, he went to my parents' house to have his belly scratched and to be fed sausages under the table. Everybody won.

Sorry about the quality, but I was reviewing one of the first consumer digital cameras in 1997, and that's what digital looked like without flash back then!

All right, I've got a bulldog, one of those English ones, and she goes sailing with me! There, I said it.

For the record, the American Staffordshire, or pit bull, and the bull terrier are two different breeds.

Damn it! I was so ready for this thread never to show its ugly head again. As crazy as doglady was I can't help but miss her and argue that it is possible to go sailing with dogs. Would I recomend it? No way! I live and sail with a 50 lb husky on a 39 foot sailboat. I've been through three vacuums trying to keep up not to mention cleaning hair out of the bilge, AC filters, and air filter on the old perkins etc. If you love your dogs it can be done, but what a pain.

With what you've observed of the dog-lady can you imagine there being a successful cruise with the genius bulldogs and she would NOT post back here about it? (g)

SailorMitch will become famous soon enough
I have wondered of late if the genius bulldogs were members of Mensa. Inquiring minds want to know. Well, not really.
