Welcome to our special holiday edition of Pets Aboard: Four days of dogs starting with Bongo, a Coton De Tulear, onboard T/T Happy Thought with Jeff and Lynn Smithof Easton, Maryland. Who doesn't love a dinghy ride!
Usually we do this Friday afternoon (or Saturday morning when we get behind), but since we have more than 40 dog portraits at last count, we figured we were falling behind, hence: The Dog Days of Thanksgiving, to be followed by the Twelve Dogs of Christmas.
Send pictures of your dog or cat to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll put him or her on display like Bongo. 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!
