Honey Says No To The Bahamas – Wordless Wednesday

Honey laid down the law.

No long ocean passages for her. Not even to go to the Bahamas.

Honey the golden retriever lies on her fake grass mat.

I don’t want to use this mat for what my people want me to use it for.

Can you guess from the picture why we won’t be taking Honey on any long, ocean passages?

  1. I’m guessing she won’t potty on the astro-turf. She’s a natural girl, it seems!

  2. I remember your post about Honey crossing her legs while on the boat! It looks like the turf makes a good bed though.

    I think you can get a spray that makes a place smell ‘attractive’ for puppies to use when training – that might be worth a try, if you haven’t already.

  3. There’s only one guess needed!

  4. That’s too bad, were you planning a trip?

  5. That could put a damper on long voyages for sure. It would for me too. 😆

  6. I’ll be more than happy to watch precious Honey if you and Mike decide you want to go to the Bahamas!

  7. Oh… that would be a long way to hold it. I’m guessing she wouldn’t be a fan of Doggy Depends either? 🙂

    • I doubt it. But I KNOW I wouldn’t.

      We pull enough natural material out of her floofies as it is. I can’t imagine what diapers would do.

  8. It would be tough to be a dog on any boat for more than a few hours, but a small boat would be even more difficult.

  9. Honey doesn’t like to “go” on the boat at all? I’m assuming if she’s sleeping on the mat, that means it’s not being used for anything else! 🙂

    • As long as she avoided sleeping on the mat I held out hope. But this was definitely a bad sign.

      And no, she’s unwilling to use it for anything else.

  10. It has to have something to do with that grass “carpet”, I would guess. Maybe she prefers to sleep on it instead of doing her business on it?

  11. Oh no! So instead of seasickness she had a shy bladder? Poor thing.

  12. My dogs would do the same thing – hold it as long as possible. My Cassie wouldn’t go on anything that wasn’t grass.

  13. Aw, that little piece of astroturf must be like relaxing on a patch of grassy lawn to Honey instead of what you had in mind for it. I also bet it’s hard to aim for that when the boat is rocking, haha!

  14. Pretty sure you’re suppose to potty on that, girl. LOL! The only success I’ve had with any kind of potty pad training was using an actual piece of sod (it came in a box and you just watered it, haha). Used it during a serious rash of storms and it worked out great.

  15. Her visa expired?

  16. Oh, that made me laugh and laugh. Aren’t dogs hilarious?

  17. Oh I don’t know whether to laugh or not…of course you want to take your boat to the Caribbean, and want to bring Honey, but this is a big obstacle! Honey probably wonders why she’s expected to potty on a shag carpet 😀
