Meet Widget, the overly-enthusiastic line handler who cruises with our PassageMaker Personal Trainers Jay and Karen Campbell.

Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Widget the Jack Russell Terrier cruises aboard Largo with PassageMaker Personal Trainers Jay & Karen Campbell and has made the adjustment to being a full-time Florida liveaboard.

Widget spends her time chasing fish, swimming, and obsessing over dock and deck lines due to their seeming resemblance to snakes.

According to owners Jay & Karen, Widget lives on the line of insanity just between "Our dog is insane,"and "We the jury find the defendant."

Widget has one speed and one speed only: ON.


Keep sending Pets Aboard pictures of your dogs or cats to, and we’ll put him or her on display like Widget. 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. And once we get organized again, we’ll have another contest like the one we recently completed. Click to view the winners. We’ll select the contestants from dogs submitted to Pets Aboard.
