Pets Aboard: 'Best Pal' Likes Wind in Her Ears


Henna the long-haired dachshund likes to go boating with her best friend Kristen Anderson and her parents Ken and Lori Anderson. Their boat is Gin Sea, a Mainship 34 Trawler, docked in Newport, Rhode Island. 

"Our favorite spot to ride on the boat is the very front, Kristen writes. "Henna loves to check out the birds, boats, buoys and everything we pass ­ and I think she loves the feeling of wind in her ears! She is my best pal, who goes everywhere with me ­ to work each day, on road trips, and of course, on boat trips."

Our Float ‘n’ Fetch contest is now under way and you can vote for your favorites by clicking on the logo at left. You can vote once per day for however many dogs you choose. In December the editor’s will narrow the top vote-getters to three winners.

The contest was fed from entries to weekly Pets Aboard feature. The deadline is past for Pets Aboard dogs to get into Float ‘n’ Fetch. But please keep sending us your pets to post. Those pictures will form the basis for the entries the next time we have a contest.

So go ahead and vote. The winning dog will have a floating handheld radio from ICOM, a device well worth fetching.
