Stanley gets a lot of attention wherever we go. Most people think he’s super cute or still a puppy. There was the lady he scared to death b/c she didn’t like dogs and the little girl who called him a fat doggy (he was depressed for a week after that one!) but mostly people like Stanley. We’re often asked what kind of dog Stanley is and to be honest we don’t know for certain! We do know he’s pug though so Ryan started telling people that Stanley is pug-n-stuff. I think this is the best description so far so here are some pictures of Stanley our pug-n-stuff mutt.
Stanley got a new nautical themed collar and looks very dashing. That is all.
A few people have asked me how Stanley is doing on the boat. Well, he’s settled in just fine and seems not to mind being on the boat. He’ll go out and walk around the decks and hang out in his bed under the salon table. He seems to be adjusting (other than the fact that he held it for 36 hours on our way up from Beaufort to the Chesapeake).
However, there is nothing Stanley enjoys more than a dingy ride! He gets as excited for a dingy ride as he used to for a walk and will start freaking out if he thinks we’re getting ready to go. You might think that he is just excited to get off the boat and on land, but he is equally excited to get in the dingy coming or going. He’ll jump in and out without fear and if you take too long starting the motor he’ll start barking! It will usually take me a time or two of pulling the cord to get it started and Stanley starts barking “move it, move it, hurry!!!”. 🙂
