Our dog Mabel prefers when we are all together and she prefers that togetherness to be on land. While my husband and our youngest were out for a sail a weekend ago Mabel paced the dock and waited patiently for their return. She could barely contain herself as they got closer to the dock.
What's really cool though is this is my husband's childhood sailboat - it has to be forty years old (or maybe even more!). He has such fond memories of sailing with his dad when he was younger it's nice to be able to see him extend that to a new generation. It's great to spend some time with the girls with no distractions, electronics or texts. Just the wind, water and some new memories.
