• The Sailor Dog under the weather.

    October 26, 2020 by

    The Sailor Dog has been sick.  Very sick. It started a few weeks back when she threw up in the middle of the night.  Some thing way out of normal.  In our panic over her well being we brought her to a 24 hours Vet Surgery.  Tests were ran and the results were less than… Read more

  • Post Pandemic Lockdown Conundrum

    May 16, 2020 by

    We are not free of our home imprisonment yet here in Singapore but China, South Korea, Japan and part of the US and Europe are undergoing an opening or partial opening of their economy.

  • Sailor Dog locked down.

    April 29, 2020 by

  • Sailor dog, the boss on our boat.

    October 1, 2019 by

    Sailor dog is now as far removed from her past in the pound, as can be.  For one, she is no longer as timid as she was when she first came out of the pound to live with us on our boat.  She still fears loud noises such as thunder, which make her shiver with… Read more
