I got Charlie a year ago from the Humane Society when he was 8 weeks old.  Charlie is a Lab/Doberman  mix and has been a outstanding member of my family.  I have been wanting to get him out in my drift boat for quite sometime now.  Yesterday the opportunity came about for myself and him to take our first ride in the boat together.   My first worry would be him being to scared of the water and the boat.  Then my second worry was would my boat and fly rods survive.  Charlie Boy did great, he was very calm and laid around sleeping most of the day.  I have to admit its pretty cool having my dog along for the ride.  Now the next step is getting Charlie to point out the fish.Boat dog
