MV Obsession

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

Our Dogs On MV …


This is Katy (Katama) our Boykin Spaniel in 2000, she was our first dog to go to Martha’s Vineyard… actually our first dog to ever go on a vacation with us. Here she is on the Islander looking happy and eager to get on with her adventures.

She enjoyed her first dip in the ocean… running and barking and trying to catch an elusive wave or two.

At Katama/South Beach, the place she was named for she was a little unsure of the waves so she mostly romped along side of them.

A quiet morning at Edgartown lighthouse was nice after going to the beach, shopping and meeting people. Unfortunately it was Katy’s one and only trip to MV… a year later she was hit by a car and died at only 20 months old.

Did you ever see such beautiful yellow eyes. She was a sweetheart and we miss her and love her.


And then along came…

Chappy (Chappaquiddick) our second Boykin Spaniel and our first boy dog. His first vacation in 2002,  at age 10 months was of course to MV, and he of course also loves the beach…

…and Sengekontacket pond which is a little calmer then the ocean.

Relaxing at Vineyard Haven harbor is fun too… watching the ferries arriving and leaving and sometimes meeting an Island dog to chat with. This by the way is his mom Deb’s favorite picture of him.

Ocean Park in Oak Bluffs is always a nice place to spend time.


Chappy had to visit the place he was named after too so here he is with Deb on Chappaquiddick.

Two of the places that accept pets are  Bradys NESW and The Island Inn, and they’re great place to stay with or without your pet.

Chappy’s been known to visit my blog from time to time… here are a couple of his posts:  click on the links to enjoy them.

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 :)

  1. So cute. I love to take my own, “Doodle” dog on vacation with me, too.
