Misty: Who’s driving?

Okay, we give up. Who’s driving? The blonde with the black nose or the brunette with the sunglasses? But then again, does it really matter? After all, it’s a beautiful day on the water in Southeast Harbor, Deer Isle, and that’s a Pulsifer Hampton launch, and you know the type—no matter who is at the wheel, a Hampton can just about take care of itself. Here are the particulars: » The boat—Eastern Mark, 30 years old. » The brunette—Lisa, 19 years old, daughter of the boat’s owners, Mark and Betsy Gabrielson of Deer Isle. » The blonde—Misty, 5 years old, golden retriever, “without a doubt the family’s best lookout for seals, birds, and lobster pot buoys.” We’d like to see your Boatyard Dog®! Send photo and details to BYD, P.O. Box 566, Rockland, ME 04841, or click here to contact us through our website. As part of a collaboration with the folks at The Bark magazine, Misty and her people will receive a free one-year subscription and a personalized copy of the book DogJoy. The Bark will be the media sponsor for the World Championship Boatyard Dog Trials held on Sunday morning during the Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show, August 12-14, 2011. It’s a wild and zany event—details at maineboats.com. (Sorry, no pets allowed on show grounds.)
