    Just picked up this shirt at my Subaru dealer. Love it. No offense intended to you cat fanciers.
    Looks like a W&C canoe with the canvas replaced with fiberglass to show the planking that some think is attractive, can't agree. Again, no offense. just got a chuckle out of the shirt.
    Second photo is my old dog that always went with me. At 70lb. in the front, trimmed the boat perfectly for paddling from the stern seat.
    Lets see yours.

    This isn't my dog or a wooden canoe but I always liked this picture from the 1994 Old Town catalog. I agree with Paul that yours is much better.

    I don't know much about dogs, but I really like Craig's double gunnel old Town.

    Thanks for the compliments. I figured asking folks for dog pics was an easy long thread, should have known you would get distracted by the boats. here are a couple more of the 1910 double gunwale.

    Wow! I just came across this thread and didn't know that something like this existed. Here's my brother's lab retriever. Whenever he's not chilling out in his cooling dog bed or chewing on his dog toys, he would hitch a ride in my brother's canoe. Such an adorable tyke.

    New dog in training. Not as classic as the chocolate lab but he loves the water and behaves in the canoe.IMG_0505.jpgIMG_0539.jpg
