Dog on board

Hi all,
I am new here and am thinking of cruising with my Jack Russell Terrier. Any thoughts? I think he will be very handy on the boat. Take a look at the video of what he can do, it will save tons of water!

Oh no, another genius dog! Didn't look at the video, dial up and all that. Go ahead and cruise with him, never know, the fresh rations may be needed.

Jack Russells tend to be a bit gamy and tough... Labradors are a much better choice, and provide a few more meals on top as well.

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.

awesome, you can x-nay the dishwasher and garbage disposal saving lots of room. if he can lick the laundry clean too you can do without the washing maching. I dont think he can do much for the on deck hot tub. but you never know. I'm just being an a$$ but i say "sail with him" i'd bet he will be alot of fun to cruise with. I cruised with a pomeranian excellent for swabbing the cockpit after blowing chunks. a fun little dog, had to give her away before going south pacific, but she went to a good home. one of the problems cruising with pets...heartbreaking. see her on the bow

Well you can use the dog for shark bait.
If he is a yapper. An emergency fog signal device.
As above. A lookout, the bigger the ship bearing down on you the louder he yaps.
An attack dog for any flying fish that comes aboard.

Emergency rations

Yeah, you need to track down that thread of the lady with her two "near genius" bull dogs. Wonder what ever happened to her and hubby -- not to mention the Staffy and the Bully? Or, as a certain someone said at the time:

Shackleton proved beyond a doubt that having emergency rations along on a trip is a good thing.

Her husband was "genius dog trainer" or something like that.. so maybe the two dogs mutinied and ate her and her husband and are now off sailing the south pacific by themselves.

Sounds likely. The dogs were clearly the brains of that operation.
