Wet look ... DRY look

Hey, have any of you thought about joining DWB??? I would LOVE TO, butt I understand that you must have someone referrrrrr you. Would anybuddy be willing to do that for me???
Good news about Mona.... she came through her operation just GRRRREAT. WHEW!!!
Remember when my boat was WAAAAY out in the water and I couldn't get to her???? Well this is how she looked THEN. You can't even see the wooden post that she is moored to beclaws... it is clear under the water. And this pic was taken WAAAAY back up in the parking lot.

See how far out she WAS????

This is what she looked like on Thursday. YEAH!! I was able to get to again, FINALLY. See the wooden thingy on the Right? That was what was underwater. That is Jennifer Jeep's Butt light on the LEFT. See how close we are supposed to be able to Park????

This is a pic of where the water USED to be.... WAY WAY WAY back up into the Second tier of the parking area.

There is a stick at the bottom of the picture that was left from the high water.
I am surely glad that it has gone back to ALMOST where it belongs. You can still see UNDER my boat from here and you shouldn't be able to do that. I couldn't even jump on by myself. Sometimes in the late summer I have to jump DOWN to get on. I like it better that way.
I had a grrreat time anyway. Wait until you see the pictures of what I looked like after I came back on board AFTER my fun time on Shore Patrol. Whoooooie.


Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

FRANKIE!!! we will refer you to DWB's. How do we do that? we don't remember having to do that when we joined, but maybe we did... Do we send Brooke and Greg an e-mail or what?
Your pals, Morgan & Maisie

Nellie and Calvert said...

Hi Frankie,

You can just enter your own blog on DWB, follow this link and click on submit your blog (

We can't wait to see your pictures, can you swim? We have dachshund friend in Nawlin's and whenever he tries to swim he kind of rolls over a bit, unlike Nellie who kind of sinks... hehehe

Okay gotta go, Nellie's coming after me for making fun of her weight!


Paws-out from
oh and Nellie "slim" too!

Ruby and Penny said...

Morning Frankie
We're glad you can get to your boat. That sure was a lot of water.
Love ya
Ruby & Penny
Pees - did you mean the Bone Zone. If so you can go to Opy's Blog here and send them an email saying you would like to join. We will gladly say you are a great dog.

The Thundering Herd said...

We would be glad to sponsor you onto DWB. The site is picking back up after a little hiatus but I don't think is ready to start taking new members quite yet. The administrators of the website lost their beloved canine and took some time off.

Remington said...

Great pics! I can't wait to see the others! Am happy Mona is doing okay.... So did you fish?

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! I know the past months DWB put a hold on new member but did not realized that they've change their membership policy. I check on it. Looking forward on seeing more of your photos. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

dewdana said...

NOW I get it! Thanks for showing what it is supposed to look like. It still looked a little funny to me (that would never work in the ocean and that is all I know!) but when you said it was still way higher than it should be it made even more sense! Thanks for explaining! My brain can rest now!
I see others have already explained that you should not need to be recommended. As I understand it You just have to register your blog then you are in the list of DWB but if you want to post in the Bone Zone forum you need to register to get a password there too so it is kind of a 2 step process. At least it was when I joined ages ago. Greg and Brooke are bizzzy though so sometimes it will take a bit before they get back to you but they do eventually!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I'll refer you in a beat.
Did they change the rule, I remembered I just join DWB by myself, no referral at all.
(The only criteria to be qualified is handsomeness and you're sure overqualified, I made this one up, hehe)
Love ya lots



I can't wait to see you in a life preserver. What lake is that? Geez the water got high. If you need swim instructions, I'm an excellent teacher. I can even show you how to hold your breath!! You might have to remove your I love R & P hat though...I'm just saying

Zona said...

Seems like you have a lot of offers to sponsor you on DWB when they allow new members.. count me as one more! I am SO excited to see your boating pictures. What fun that must be! Do you get to go often?


houndstooth said...

We've pretty much given up on DWB. It seems like a lot of trouble to get in.

I can't wait to see your swimming pictures! I would love to get a life jacket and try some real swimming sometime, but we greyhounds don't have enough body fat to swim. It doesn't stop me from loving to play in the pool, though!


The Two Country Poodles said...

Furry cool! Can't wait to see you in your captins hat aboard the boat. Will you be sporting a speedo when you take a dip in the lake? We bet Ruby and Penny would just love that. BOL

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

We used to have a pontoon boat! That brings back memories when we used to visit our grandparents. What fun we had.

Dory and the Mama said...

WOW...So glad you can get to your boat now!!

Looks like you have lots of DWB referrals, but we will refer you too if you need us!!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

It looks like you got lots of offers for help with DWB. We would be happy to refer you too - just let us know if you need us.

Glad to see that everything is back to normal with the boat - happy sailing away.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

BRUTUS said...

Holy schmoley!! I knew it rained a lot here, but that's like 87 million times more than we had to make the lake so much bigger! Glad everything drained back down & your boat was all OK!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Frankie!
Our friends are right. To be part of DWB you just need to submmit your blog address and then you wait for a confirmation. Then, for the Blog Zone you need to send an email to Opy and she will give you your password.
I am very happy knowing that Mona is doing pretty well!
Happy Sunday!
Kisses and hugs

Rambo said...

Hi Frankie,
Yeh....I agree...I don't think you need to be referred. You just join. But just in case they changed the rules I would be glad to refer you to DWB!!
Thanks for letting us know that Mona is okay.


Sunny,Scooter(sometimes Jamie) said...

Hey! Frankmeister!!! Nope, you do not have to be referred to join DWB. Just go to DWB site and enter your info.
What you have to be referred to (if not a member) is the voting once a month. So go to the DWB site and enter your info. It may take a bit because Greg and Brooke are soon coming to the states, but there ya go. You would totally qualify, because you are a dog! you are a family friendly site.
Greg and Brooke(founders of DWB and now Cats With are the nicest folks!

Opy - the Original GruffPuppy said...

Hi Frankie,

My mum and dad run DWB - and we would love to have you as a member. Currently we still aren't accepting new members - but please send me an email so when we are back up and running you will be amongst the first pups to be added. We all took a break from DWB when our Charlie passed away and we are slowly getting back into it - but haven't reactivated the "submit your blog" button yet.

You don't need a referral to join DWB, but we were getting hit alot with spammers on the Bone Zone discussion forums, so decided to make that alittle more secure - I am happy to give you all the info for the Bone Zone so you can join that in the mean time.

Please email me -

Thanks buddy,



Tucker said...

Frankie, I'm not a DWB member either.... poo on the referal, but hey maybe you'll get in with someone elses help. Good luck.

woof - Tucker

Benny and Lily said...
