Living the Dream... 3 adults, and 2 Dogs Style

We're planning on heading out for the Caribbean, August 2014... My wife, my son, two Alaskan Malamutes, and a Hunter 33. Nuts or brave, here is our story:

Saw your blog ealier in the week! The picture of the cruise ship hot tub/swimming pool reminds me of why I like a smaller boat and the independance of cruising! Good luck with your adventure and hopefully I will be behind you in 6 months or so! Everyone is crazy here, so you will fit right in!

Totally loved your blog and will be following it. Cheers to your planning and making this dream happen. We are on the same plan, and will be in your area mid July 2013. Congrats!

Tranquilo—Congratulations, I will be following your adventure and hopefully gain some tips! We have similar plans with our family, but with a much later departure date, June 2016.

Re: Living the Dream... 3 adults, and 2 Dogs Style

I had a Malamute. Loved that dog. Perhaps the best dog I ever had, named Gypsy. She would go out on a snowy day and lay in the puddles to get extra cool. Summers in NY were too hot for her.

NO WAY I would take a malamute from a cold climate to hot and on a boat to boot. I dont think your Malamutes can take the trip. It will kill them.
