Dogs and Narrow Boats – View from Four Paws

Whilst we love Fantine from the bottom of our hearts, there are two other loves in our lives. Introducing Rosie and Heidi, the beloved fur babies (Gremlin monsters).

THEY MAKE LOOK LIKE AN ADORABLE CAIRN TERRIER AND LITTLE LURCHER

Rosie is a four year old Cairn Terrier and Heidi an eighteen month old mix of everything sight houndy! Whilst they may look cute they can be like Gremlins who have got wet.

DON’T BE FOOLED, THEY CAN BE NAUGHTY LITTLE GREMLINS WHEN THEY WANT TO BE! 

Honestly though, whilst we knew the move onto the boat would be a big change for ourselves, we were worried on how the change would effect the girls. Whilst we haven’t even spent a night on board yet we have taken them with us each time we have gone, to get them used to being on board.

So far … so pawsome! They have settled onto the boat really quickly. They have no trust at all in the jettys so you do have to coax them along, but once on board all is good. Rosie has found her spot at the helm of the boat watching the world go by, and Heidi is happy anywhere she can snuggle up!

Of course we know that being aboard properly will be different and have different challenges, but from what we have seen so far, was are sure they will be fine, and with the countryside on their doorstep, we can’t help but think they will be happy with the changes to come!
