Anchors Apup: 15 Dogs Enjoying Summer Boat Rides

Posted by Stacey Venzel

Sun's out, fun's out! It's boating time for these pooches!

Life by the sea is filled with nautical terms and knowledge some of us will never know, but these dogs get it perfectly. Whether they're enjoying life on the ocean or lake, they are making the most of the summer fun.

Check out this collection of bow-wows at the bow. This is proof that every boat should have a four-legged crew member.

If you're a boater, you can probably relate to these photos with a dog onboard. If you're dog-less or boat-less, you'll be wanting to fix that.
