Guys,

I have a 38kg German Shepherd.

The design of the boat will be assessed with her ability to move safely around the boat.

She's been throguh some tough times with me when she the only one there so i reckon shje should also share in the good times as well.

In fact I might even name the boat psychobitch in her honour!

But that may confuse the wife.

I don't know about that, but a Portuguese water dog is not just a dog, but a crew member, or at least it used to be . Each boat had two...and they worked hard and were paid, like other crew members...well, not as much but 1/5 of the salary of a man.

"Portuguese Water Dogs are originally from the Portuguese region of the Algarve, from where the breed expanded to all around Portugal's coast, where they were taught to herd fish into fishermen's nets, to retrieve lost tackle or broken nets, and to act as couriers from ship to ship, or ship to shore.

Portuguese Water Dogs rode in bobbing fishing trawlers as they worked their way from the warm Atlantic waters of Portugal to the frigid fishing waters off the coast of Iceland where the fleets caught cod to bring home.

Portuguese Water Dogs were often taken with sailors during the Portuguese discoveries."
