Martini's New Apparel

Yesterday I did something I have never done before. I bought a lifejacket for my dog. In September we will be spending some time at a marina on the west coast of Florida and we may well be out on a boat. If we do go out on a boat Martini will be with us. Should Martini fall in the water he could swim but not for very long. So I decided it would be better to be safe than sorry.

The jacket is day-glow orange with reflective strips that would be visible in the dark. He sure won’t be making a fashion statement but this bright piece of apparel could save his life and having it sure makes the idea of boating with him, more pleasurable.

Better safe than sorry! Martini doesn't seem to have issues with being in clothing, and I'm sure you will all feel better knowing there's more than just his puppy-paddling to help him if he falls in.

So glad you did this, it's very sensible. We haven't taken Diva on a boat (yet!) but if we do, we'll be getting a lifejacket for her too. She loves to swim, but like anyone else, you can only swim for so long if you're out in the middle of a lake.
