Summer holibobs 2013: Part 1 – on the boat

Summer holibobs 2013: Part 1 – on the boat

Woofings!

Gosh it’s been a while since I last blogged: it’s summer here in New Zealand, and I’ve been enjoying the summer holibobs to the max! The weather has been hot and sunny, so I’ve been chilling out. šŸ™‚

I went away on mum and dad’s yacht (sail boat) for 3 weeks, it was soooo relaxing, and I had lots of pawsome adventures!

In fact, I’ve got so many photos to share with you that I can’t fit them all into one blog post, so I’ll spread them out.

I hope you like them!

Ahoy! And welcome to my yacht! This is my favourite chillaxation spot when we're at anchor: it's nice 'n' shady, plus there's a great view. The breeze gently wafts over me, and I get to sniff all the latest sniffs!

I can also stick my nose over the edge, and keep watch on what's happening in the cockpit!

Naturally, my beach towel is pink. :) I look very snug and cosy eh!

This is another great spot: near the noms! Mum might think this is her spot, but hey, finders keepers! ;)

Phew, that was hard work, I'd best have a nap!

Whereas mum likes relaxing on holiday, dad is quite active. He had a few attempts at fishing, but the only person to get a fish for dinner was me! (He only managed to catch little bait fish... nommy for me!)

Phew, that was a big day! Lucky I have a nice comfy bunk in the cabin, and my teddy bear to use as a pillow. zzzzzz....

The next day... Just as well that I have a big mug of coffee to help me wake up!

Love ā€˜nā€™ licks,

PS. A final photo, just to show that it wasn’t sunny every day!

We did get one day of rain:

We did have one day of rain on holiday. It was still warm though, so I kept up my Baywatch guard dog duties!

  1. Hi Minnie: Such cute pictures, and lucky you for three weeks! I’m just wondering if you wear a life preserver at all? When you are actually sailing maybe? Our Westie had a very cute one (red!) that fit perfectly and kept her safe.
    Well, just looking out for you!!! Can’t wait to see more of your holiday (and, of course, your Mum’s and Dads!).

    What fantastic photos ! Love to see your adventures – you have put a smile on my face, you are gorgeous Minnie – love you !x

    Awww, thank you so much Stacy, you are wuffly! I’m glad I made you smile! *nose licks*

    Hi Libby,
    Thank you for your wuffly comment and for your concern about my safety! Yes, I do have a life jacket – but when it’s very “wuff” out sailing I am on my bed down below in the cabin. Mum and dad are always careful to keep me safe! (I go out racing on the boat every week, too, so I am very used to sailing. Mum thinks I have sailed about 3,000 nautical miles now!)
    Is your Westie a sailing dog as well then?
    Wags ‘n’ nose licks,
    Minnie xx
