Captain…Or First Mate?

Joelle H. writes in: “My parents have a boat on the Finger Lakes in New York (wine country) and they are taking their 8 month old puppy out for a ride today. His name is Reese (short for Riesling Wine.) He’s a pretty cute guy and he likes the water. Credits for the photo go to my mom, Nancy H…her title for the picture is: Captain or First Mate?”


[OK, since she PROVIDED a title, we’ll use it. -Ed]

    He is gorgeous! He is definitely the captain.

    In my family, the dog is always the captain. 🙂

    Having the puppet be captain obviates any human arguments about whose turn it is.
