VP46 - are you an Orion guy? My brother flew P-3s with '46 out of Moffatt for years till they shipped him to Pax River.
Anyway, my German Shepherd had better boating manners than any other member of the family - he used to go lay on the back seat even when the boat was tied to the dock. Now I have 2 dachshunds that love riding in the boat. The way I look at it, they are members of the family and we love having them with us. They make much less of a mess than small kids...
