Man’s Best Friend Take it or Leave it

DOG FISHINGWe are very dedicated to our pets and our pets in return provide us with unconditional love and dedication. Unfortunately, some people are afraid of cats and dogs and some just plain don’t like them. This is something that I really will never understand but we must respect the feelings and opinions of others.

Yesterday, I took a friend and went on a dolphin and whale watching tour on the Delaware Bay. There was a half day fishing boat that was preparing to depart. The owner and captain of the ship was busy gathering up the passengers for the trip. The captain always takes his dog, a beautiful Lab along with him. When one passenger, saw the dog, she rudely asked the captain if he was taking the dog. The captain replied that his dog always accompanies him on his fishing trips. The women replied “I paid a lot of money for this trip and I don’t want that dog coming along. I don’t like dogs and I’m afraid of them.” The captain said to the women that the dog will never bother anyone and that he loves to be with people. He also told the women that he would try to keep the dog upstairs in the cabin but he wasn’t making any guarantees that the dog would stay. The women continued to complain. Then the captain said, if the dog does’nt go on the trip, then he won’t go and there’s no trip. ( You could see by the faces of the other passengers, that they wanted to smack this women and so did I!)  The women finally did go on the trip but that Lab wasn’t going to stay in the cabin. So what was the outcome? Who knows? I went on a different trip. Maybe the women jumped overboard!

I’m assuming that almost all of my readers are animal lovers but I guess  we must try to understand that there are a lot of people who do not like animals. That’s a shame, they’re really missing a lot out of life!

Remember, your pets count!
