Pets Aboard: From His 'Riviera' Base, Finn Cruises Cape Cod Bay


Finn McDaid of the Irish Riviera (also known as Scituate, Massachusetts) is a rambling puppy known all over Cape Cod Bay, which he cruises aboard Dreamin Man with human companions Tom and Jill McDaid. Finn is of course a Boston Terrier.

Welcome to our Holiday edition of Pets Aboard. 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 really 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 editor, and we’ll put him or her on display like Finn. 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!
