Yesterday, I took my corgi and collie on a boat ride! The day was a special Argosy Cruise trip planned by CityDog Magazine, Dog Day on Elliot Bay. We three dogs, Brychwyn, Huxley and I, joined dozens of other dogs for a cruise on a boat from downtown Seattle to Tillicum Village and the Washington State Park on Blake Island in Puget Sound. We were served hot dog slices and bacon peanut butter biscuits on the boat plus a delicious brown rice, turkey, carrot and broccoli lunch on the island. The ladies from The Dining Dog Cafe, who served us all of that scrumptious food, are some of the best people I have ever met in my whole life and, while I prefer living with Bethany and Jason, my corgi and my collie would likely follow those chefs anywhere.
But enough about the food. We rode on a boat! The morning and early afternoon were overcast so we stayed cool as we waited patiently to board our boat, the Lady Mary. The boat ride was chilly and breezy. The sea air smelled divine, especially when mixed with the scent of hot dogs, bacon and peanut butter. I wanted to ride that "boat to the moon somehow" but, just as we had gotten our sea legs, the boat stopped! Grr. We got off on the island (which I will admit was pleasant) but it was not a boat.
