River Dogs @ work

This is for pictures of river dogs on boats, in the water, or relaxing in camp (no generic cute head-shots, please).

Ruby tested the new light cat frame today, with the D-deck rigged. I bumped a little sleeper in a flat stretch and she fell off headfirst— first time. Surprised us both.


On the D-deck, reporting for duty: navigation, sniffing, licking ears, whatever.



Ruby on watch. Note the relaxed attitude and faded PFD: she's a river vet for sure.



Water = happiness. On Deso last fall, in her element.

Oh no you didn't, a thread for dog pics, here's a few beginning with the dearly departed king of all river dogs Barkley Gallatin, then he and his protege Hanna Platte, queen river bitch and finally the new pup in training Percival Gunnison a.k.a. Percy, Sweat P, Mr. Peepers, P Funk, Pain in The Ass who has taken a liking to the boat as well as swam a mile of river behind me in my kayak this weekend, pretty flat water. So if he survives his first year on the river and his first camp trip with Kona he should be a good river dog also.

Since Class 3 mentioned Kona I figured I better post some pics. Unfortunately since I am at work these are the only pictures I have.[ATTACH][ATTACH]Click image for larger version

OarBM— is that spotted feller Wilson? Didn't you post a shot of him "hunkering down" as the boat hit some big stuff? Great shot.

Here are a couple more of Ruby on Deso last fall, doing her favorite thing in her favorite spot.


When she hears a rapid, she jumps up, ready for action. (Not yet.)


Mmmm— water's pretty flat, boss. You can handle it on your own.

(Watching a dog snooze makes me happy.)
