Well, our new little pup has turned out to be quite an ol' salt! At just 5 1/2 months old, she has probably spent more time 'at sea' than most land lovin' people!
Our charter clients seem to love having Casey aboard. She meets new people every day and DH swears she is a remedy for sea sickness! He thinks that by distracting peoples attention away from the rolling seas, she occupies their mind and has a calming effect on them. Failing that, she is always happy to snuggle during a mid-day nap (as per the pics below).
The presence of the sharks aboard the boat doesn't seem to faze her in the least. She just dawdles around, looking for the occasional food crumbs or a pat on the head.
Our only mishap occurred recently when she climbed up onto the settee in the parlour and pooped on a client's jacket. :-(
You mentioned sharks... is this a fishing charter? If so, what do you normally catch?
Yep, it's a shark fishing charter (catch, tag & release). Here's a pic of Casey (which I posted on a previous thread) with her first shark! We typically catch blue sharks, but occasionally a few porbeagles and makos.
