Bailey and Tanner Boone

Hey! My butt's cold!pet me!

Bailey's the 1.5 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever who owns Mike Boone. She loves swimming and retrieving, but her special talent is stripping all the fuzz off a tennis ball in less than 2 minutes.

Says Mike: "My in-laws were due in town a few months back on their way up to our summer house in VT. I was fishing when they arrived, and Bailey wouldn't let my mother-in-law in the house. Needless to say, I found this much funnier than anyone else."

Tanner was their 12 year old Golden Retriever. "I guess he was really my wife's dog, she had him before I met her. However, he might be one of the main reasons that I agreed to marry her." He loved to ride in the boat, and his favorite pasttime was bringing rocks up from the bottom of whatever lake we were at.
