Pets Aboard: Fred's Not Dead; He's Dreaming About Biting Some Pesky Pirates


Fred the long haired basset hound, saves his energy to protect the good ship Menage a Trois at anchor in the Dry Torgugas. Menage belongs to Jeff and Ann Harding of Watkins Glen, New York.

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