The best laid plans of mice and sailors often go awry!

Well, dear furiends we’re still on land! Mother Nature had different plans for us today!

We’ve spent the afternoon at the vet. I had to go anyway for my vaccinations but April and Blue tagged along because we realised that April is in season this morning.

This is not ideal since dogs are stupid and Mother Nature makes Blue forget that April’s his sister!!! So they need to be separated for the next three weeks. Obviously this is easier said than done when we’re intending to share a forty foot sailboat together!

So we’ve had to take a rain check and after some consideration and the wonderful Shirley coming to the rescue…Blue will be going to stay with his biological mum, Diamond, for the week!

They both stayed there when mum and dad went to the States and they love it there with all their extended family. It means Blue won’t be lonely and we won’t have any unwanted puppies. We are waiting for Blue to be 18 months old so he can be castrated, the vets have advised us to wait because of his problem with his legs.

So this time, unfortunately, it will just be April and I on the boat. I’m hoping we can recreate this photo…

I’d like to thank Shirley publicly for saving our sailing adventures next week. Nocturne I’m coming!

Bisous, Bailey

  9. I’m sure Blue will be happy to eventually join the Nocturne crew but in the meantime, you will have a PEACEFUL sailing trip and some adventures to tell him about when you get home!

  10. Make sure April wears special pants with disposable panty shields while she is in heat. She will be bleeding during her second week in heat. Just remove them for potty breaks. They make stylish pants for dogs. Hope her maternal instinct doesn’t kick in and she thinks you need mothering. BOL

  11. Is there a reason Aprill is not spayed? Are your humans going to breed her. Sorry your plans got changed a bit, but happy Blue has a nice pace to vacation.
