Watery Wednesday: Beasts in Boats #1

This guy was on Sarasota Bay, puttering inland, with his best furry friend tagging along.  Not sure, but maybe it was a little Jack Russell.  Whatever it was, the hound sure looked like he was having a good time, sitting up high with the wind in his face, staring straight ahead with his favorite human at his side.  (Enlarge to see what I'm talking about.)  For a few weeks, I've been contemplating starting a series about pampered pooches in boats.  Then, over the weekend, I saw so many canines cruising Sarasota Bay, I've decided it's a done deal.  Consider this photo the first in an ongoing series entitled "Beasts in Boats".  (I feel better about the generic word 'beast'....you never know...I could encounter a confused cat, bird, pot bellied pig or other furry, friendly beast.)  Click here to see other Watery Wednesday photos from around the world.

What a good dog! My Coco hates water, especially when it involves a bath. :) I have visions of taking her to the beach someday(where they allow dogs, of course), but in reality, I don't think she'll enjoy it as much as me. She LOVES the snow though! Grrrr.

What a good boy! Love the pups idea....

You can also try Pups at 17th street Paw Park near the Meadows. There is a whole different world over there. The animals are so much like their owners, it is fun to watch.

Do we have a dog beach in Sarasota? I can't think of one. There's one up in Ft. Desoto park south of St. Pete, but that's a hike. Still cool to see those dogs romping on the beach.

hahahaha! Just man and beast. Cool post idea.

Cute idea. Lots of boats in north Tampa bay always have dogs in them. I'm always jealous. I'm extremely allergic to dogs. I always tell my husband I want to rent a dog to take kayaking.

The two of them seem very comfortable with each other and very happy.
