Pets Aboard: All Paws on Deck! Uniform of the Day: Whites and Lifejackets


Our eight year old Maltese litter mates Einstein and Frisco prepare for a cruise on the Nordhavn 40 Inspiration. Since owners Curt and Marcia Low are active in the Coast Guard Auxiliary everybody wears a life preserver whenever they are aboard.

Remember, every Friday afternoon (or Saturday morning when we get behind) begins Pets Aboard Weekend here at, but we need your help to keep it going.

Send pictures of your dog or cat to, and we’ll put him or her on display like Einstein and Frisco. 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!
