Harley the Boat Dog

For those of you who haven’t met Harley, he’s my dog, a Lab x Pointer, who weighs in at around 90lbs. In my mind, Harley is a an expensive poop generator who only rivals the boat in terms of being the source of costly repairs. Most people who meet him think he’s adorable, but then again everyone’s entitled to their own opinion.

Anyway, since I will be in the US for the rest of this year, I decided to bring Harley out to the boat with me. A part of this was prompted by Lisa who met him while helping me sort out my house in PDX and fell in love with him.

While I had some concerns about integrating Harley into life on Pearl, my fears proved unfounded. Harley seems to have taken to life on Pearl like a Lab to water. He springs on and off the boat from the dock without a problem — no stairs required. He seems to be quite comfortable traveling in the dinghy. Most importantly, as far as he’s concerned, he’s decided that his bed is the tiny bit of floor at the foot of the V-berth.

Here are some pics of Harley in his new environment.
