The Necessities


“Hey, Emma! Get a load of this! They even have a toilet on board.”

“Yeah, right, Ruby, but unless they lift up this board we’re standing on, and we can use the steps, there’s a three-foot drop to the lower level. I think I’ll just wait till the Captain takes us to the beach.”

“This is more like it!”

Many times I’ve wished the dogs would do their business on the deck of the boat and we could hose it off, but no, they will suffer until they are brought to the beach. And you know what they say about old dogs and new tricks.

  2. I don’t know who I should feel more sorry for, you who have to take them to the beach, or the doggies who have to hold it!

  3. You can’t blame them. They’ve been trained not to go in your house and the deck is just another floor.

  4. You have to admire dogs for what they do…. and for what they don’t do.

  7. Dogs and cats don´t like to make a mess in their “nest,” so don´t try to change this behaviour. So they have to wait a little bit longer, just like we do have to wait sometimes. I wouldn´t want a messy dog- or cat. Love your dogs!
