Mango the sailing dog

Since we adopted Mango (actually I think he adopted us) in Thailand he has become a seasoned traveler. He rides ferries, trains, motorcycles, and vans without any problem. Only when it comes to airplanes do we hit a slight snag, those he does not like at all.

Now that we have moved to Berlin one might think that is it for traveling and new  vehicles for a while. Nope, not for Mango.

His new thing is sailing. He hops on and of the boat like a monkey and is an avid protector of the boat against ducks and swans.

I am the captain!

Last weekend we went for an overnight sailing trip.  Only one problem remained: He can’t pee overboard. Peeing on the boat is not an option, at least not for him since he doesn’t like to pee where he lives. That means: He had to learn how to swim to go to the shore for a pee break. After some confusion and fearful moments he managed that as well. Not very gracefully mind you, but he did it.

    It was! I am not sure if I am captain material, but since Mango has no problem with it maybe I can just defer all my duties to him!
