Pets Aboard: Molly and Zoe Are Eighth and Ninth 'Dogs of Christmas'

Molly and Zoe are eight and nine in our Pets Aboard’s special “12 Dogs of Christmas” edition. They sail with Tom and Ellen Thurston aboard Moondance, homeport of Barrington, Rhode Island.

Usually we post a dog a week on Friday afternoons (or Saturday morning when we get behind), and since we have dozens of entries, it will take a while to post them all, so be patient. With dozens of dogs in the queue, we decided that we would pick up the pace over the holidays with the "12 Dogs of Christmas."

Send pictures of your dog or cat to, and we’ll put him or her on display like Molly and Zoe. Ideally you will include the names of the human companions, the make, model and name of boat, homeport, and a paragraph that provides context for the image or describes what makes your pet special. If you’ve got the image in high-resolution, that would allow us to publish it in the magazine, or a calendar…We just don’t know where this will lead yet, but it’s fun.

Though not exactly a contest, the editors are thinking of providing some kind of material reward to anyone who sends a truly striking image. Cute counts!
