Since we are within a month of (hopefully) beginning our 2013-14 cruise to the Bahamas, our blog entries will start focusing on preparations and destinations. Therefore I have added a new page under the “Sailor” section of the menu called “Sailor’s Adventures” where the boat dog information will be located. The first entry there is about what we did today, with a short description below.
Every year, shortly after Halloween, the “no kill” Humane Society of The Treasure Coast, located in nearby Palm City, holds a fundraiser in Stuart. Called the “Mutt March,” people pay to enter their dogs in the festivities and buy tickets for a raffle. The dogs come dressed in costumes, participating in a parade and a variety of fun events. More details can be found in the “Sailor” section of this site, located here. The photo below is one of the winners of the costume contest. Walking behind them, I actually thought a real little boy dressed like a cowboy was riding this dog. Very clever costume and very gullible me!
