Mimi is a decked out for shore leave at Pipe Creek in the Exumas region of the Bahamas. Says her human companion J. Bradford Hines, "We call her our Sea Pup and have trained her since we got her at four months old to use a training pad. Sure beats running the dinghy to the beach at inopportune times. The best description of this picture was from a friend who called her "cute but bad ass at the same time." Mimi's boat is a 1979 DeFever 43. Homeport is St. Petersburg, Florida.
Send pictures of your dog or cat to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll put him or her on display like Mimi. 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!
