I can't see the pics either, but i have been itching to say that I love that your Basenji's name is Roo!!

Same here… can't view the pictures and get the same message

Yup, all fixed… how cute!!!

Wow, great pictures! Roo looks lovely in his safety vest 😃

OMG Jason & Miranda…..he is soo cute...thank you so much for sharing the pictures. it looks like he is doing well with the sailing. I am soo happy you two to be able to have him out on the boat, what a joy.

How adorable…Roo looks really comfortable too!

Great pictures, Jason! Roo is such a handsome pup. How does he like sailing? Does he enjoy laying up on the bow or does he slide around when tacking?

These pictures are adorable, I am so glad to see another Basenji in a lifepreserver. My sister thinks I am silly for putting one on my B, Sahara, she says all dogs can swim. I said, "Hey, she doesn't like the water, so we want to make sure when she's on our boat that she is safe. Besides, it is my money so what gives. haha!!!!

What great photos, the few times I tried to take a basenji on a sailboat many years ago, well, lets just say it didn't work out too well. Roo looks very comfortable and confidant!

We do not let Roo up on the Bow when sailing. If you take a look at our boat (Melges MC Scow) then you will see there is nothing to keep him from sliding off when we are heeling the boat. The last thing I want to do in a race is to fish Roo out of the water. During a Race there is a rule that you have to finish the race with the crew you start with. So he is usually running the floor of the boat or camping out under the hull in the bow area. Of course if we are sailing flat, then he will lay behind our splash boards. There is also a place where he can get behind me in the transom area. So far he has been very good and we have not had trouble with him wanting to chew on the ropes. We figure a few more times out and Roo will finally have his real sea legs under him. Of course I was very nervous the first time he was out with us. Not only do I worry about capsizing the boat with Miranda(poor swimmer), but now I worry about the Dog. Thank God Roo has shown he can swim well. I will be posting some images of that also.

What a very lucky dog you have.

Speaking of cute Setidog, the photo of your b smiling is wonderful as well.
