Pets Aboard: Ramsey Perfects the Art of Watercraft Relaxation

ramsey boating

Ramsey the golden retriever is 12 years old and, as you can probably guess from this picture, he has been boating his whole life. He cruises aboard Caymus, with a homeport of North Muskegon, Michigan, with Jim and Penny Smaardyk, who writes "Thank you for thinking of our children with fur."Yes Ramsey is a lucky to be a boat dog, and he's photogenic.

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