Dogs Aboard: Puppy Power Boaters!
The Log received so many Dog Aboard submissions that we decided to print a special-edition spread of a few notable water-loving doggos. If you have a “fur mate” who would like to be featured in an upcoming issue, please email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or address submissions to our office at 18745 Bandilier Circle, Fountain Valley, California 92708.
Ryder Spash, the Outdoor Adventurer
Stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, sailing – if it involved water, Ryder Splash, a two-year-old moyen poodle is sure to love it. A super-smart girl, Ryder recognizes a great time is ahead when her owners say, “Ryder, let’s put on your lifejacket!”
Suki, the Angler
Welsh terrier, Suki, just loves to going fishing in her dinghy and lives aboard a vessel with her family. In fact, there has never been a fish she hasn’t liked – she licks every fish her owners catch.
Ozzie, the Cruiser
Cruising beautiful Newport Harbor on his vintage Shock Electric Packet with his family is how Ozzie spends his day of rest.
Layla, the Youngster
At the age of six months, Layla, a bullmastiff, earned her sea legs. Here, she takes her first voyage off the coast of Channel Islands, embarking at 5 a.m. for a fishing trip. Now an experienced boater, Layla owns a life vest and looks forward to her next trip!
Hank, the First-Time Sailor
A three-year-old “mega mutt,” Hank enjoys his very first voyage aboard a 40-foot Beneteau on Emerald Bay. Synergy, the vessel, is out of Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club. Hank is sure to be a seasoned seafarer before long!
Bud, the Salty Sea Dog
Adee and John McMaster love taking Bud, usually by dinghy or kayak, to the sandbar at Dana Point Harbor. Sometimes they take a Tolleycraft and anchor it out, but no matter the mode of transportation, Bud likes to roll in the sand of the beach once he gets back to land.
Boulder, the Holiday Hound
Preparation for the holiday boating parades is a big deal at any harbor. Boulder, a border collie mix, was onboard to help his family arrange decorations for the Dana Point Boat Parade of Lights in 2017.
Cherry, the New-to-Cali Boater
A 4-month-old goldendoodle, Cherry arrived from Indiana in January 2018. She now calls sunny Channel Islands Harbor her home and loves sitting on the aft deck of her owner Luke’s 30-foot Willard Vega. Cherry’s new family looks forward to making memories with her!
