Post Hurricane Irma

It was our first hurricane to live through in Florida and it was stressful, to say the least. Nemo and the gang also felt the stress. Thankfully, we sustained no damage to the house or boat, but we lost a lot of pieces of…

Personalized artwork

I recently made these these pieces for some boater friends that I wanted to share. I love making artwork personalized like this because it’s not just the “same old” anyone can pick up in a retail store but specific to the tastes and interests…

Sunsets never get old

Ever.

Big boys

I always love a nice “Boy and his Dog” portrait. I especially like this one because Charlie is six feet tall and 225lbs, so Nemo sitting next to him gives you a pretty good perspective on just how big my Big Black Dog is!…

Dolphin watching

Nemo was quite attentive to the family of dolphins feeding in the marina at Caladesi Island State Park.

Birthday painting

It’s Charlie’s birthday today! While we are in mid-reno of his house, he had casually mentioned that perhaps I would paint a mural of some sort on one of the walls, nothing in particular. I thought about it and decided on the perfect subject:…

Helper

Mr Fix It and his lovely assistant – or is it supervisor?

Summer dreams

Looking back on a great summer spent on the beach and boat with my humans. Can’t wait for warm weather to return and we can do it all again!

Sunset

Another beautiful evening spent together. Nemo enjoys watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico from the boat.

Wet dog

The water temperature has been dropping and is now below 75 in the Gulf. Brrrrrrr! That didn’t stop Nemo, however. #LuvMyBigWetGoobieDog

Ooops

Getting off the boat the other night, Nemo jumped down onto the pier as usual, until for some strange reason he didn’t walk a straight line off the finger pier and his back leg went off the side of the dock. This had the…

Caladesi Island visit

Nemo spent most of a three day weekend with us out at the State Park where he got to go boating, docking, hiking, and lots of swimming.

Apres swim

Lunch with the humans

Went to lunch with the peeps after a nice swim, rubdown and hanging out by the boat. Love these dog-friendly restaurants: http://www.ozonabluegrill.com

Getting his sea legs

Nemo on the boat getting adapted. He’s been onboard several times now and all I have to do is ask if he wants to go on the boat for him to jump up with tail wagging and run to the door telling me he’s…

Date me, date my dog

…..because we come as a pair. Thankfully, Charlie likes Nemo because Nemo just adores Charlie.

Nemo meets the boat

…..and it went sort of well. Getting him down the dock to the boat was a little tricky since apparently my dog suffers from vertigo, as in, he could see the water moving between the wooden slats below his feet and he kinda freaked…

Summer vacation

Well, an entire month and then some has slipped by. How does that happen, right? Well, in my case, I’ve been enjoying the Gulf Coast summer here in Florida and spending a lot of time on my boyfriend’s really big boat. These pictures pretty…

Been super busy lately

Wow! I just realized that an entire half a month has gone by in a blink already. How does that happen??? I have been out enjoying the beautiful Florida sunshine and warm weather with someone special in my life, so I’m sure that is…
