Sorry for those who have had to say goodbye to their buddies....been there...tough.

On a brighter side, anyone recommend anything to help your four legged friends to get back on the boat after taking a dip? We have a border collie and need to get him back on the boat some how...looking for any recommendations
Here’s a couple I’ve been looking at:
Little spendy but wouldn’t be too hard to make something similar.

We use the Paws Aboard and it works good for our 105 # German Shepard. I added another set of steps so we could still get in and out while it was attached.

Please share the progression of BWS, with pics!!!
So far so good. Sleeps overnight. 80% housebroken. Sits, speaks on command 80%. He’s a handful, but a bundle of joy:). Goes for first groom this weekend. He’s needs it!!

When my son's dog is in the water and wants to come back in the boat she'll swim over to the ladder and we grab her by the built in handle on the top of her life vest and "help" her upScreenshot_20210317-074621.png.

This boy has really kept me mentally stable. In a month I lost my boy Gizmo, an uncle, my mother in law, and an aunt. It sucks getting older, as the inevitable of the generation before you, is the phase of life where each waking day is a blessing.

Sorry for all your losses in recent weeks. A whirwind. I went through something similar a few years ago that was a rough stretch. That said, Bentley looks absolutely adorable post grooming and ready for summer weather to get to you soon.

It’s been a very trying year for so many of us. Spring and summer on the way and we’re taking the boat out today, such a release!

Mark,
95% of the time, but the 5% when he’s chasing the cats, not so much. Lol!!

My little buddy had her first ride on the new boat. Not quite a water dog but she seem to like it!
