My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Dog Sitting On The Vineyard …

Leave a comment

Julie, a friend of my daughter Deb’s asked us if we’d like to dog sit for their two Labs, Silas and Balou.  Indeed we would and so Deb, her dog Chappy and I set out for MV.

No matter how many times I go to the Vineyard my heart skips a beat or two when I see the above sign and the rotary welcoming you to Cape Cod.

This was our first time sailing on the beautiful ferry, Island Home. Seven miles and 45 minutes later we touched tire in Vineyard Haven.  We were about to start an Island adventure like none before.

Here is Deb surrounded by a happy, friendly threesome.  Chappy on the left, Balou in the front and Silas being petted.  We have never met nicer dogs, they are well behaved, sweet, gentle and loving, patient and fun. There wasn’t one moment that we didn’t enjoy being with them.  Oh, okay, maybe when Balou was trying so hard to tell us things and we just were too slow on the uptake… but generally speaking (or woofing) things went very, very well.

Except for the weather.  Two of the days we were there were wet… very, very wet.

This picture was taken from inside our dry car looking out at Edgartown Harbor.  Wet, wet, wet.  It was windy too.  And wet.

But there were times of no rain and actuall brilliant sunshine and so off on our walks in the woods we would venture.  The 4 leggeds were happy to be out and about sniffing, walking, and being together.

In all too short a time our dog sitting adventure came to an end and it was time to  head home.

Chappy is waiting to say goodbye to his new friends.  He had a great time with Silas and Balou.

The Island Home is waiting for us.

Setting tire in Woods Hole.  Back to reality.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
