World Record for Dog Petting and boat sale update

Does anyone know what the world record is for continuous dog petting?  I don't but I am pretty sure that it is less than the world record for a dog wanting to be petted!  Jesse is a petting "whore".

Everywhere I go I can feel Jesse's nose brushing the back of my legs.  Every time I lie down on my bed, whether to watch tv or to sleep, Jesse jumps up and places his front paws and head on my chest.  This really bugs me!  In fact, it bugs me so much that I called the rescue organization that brought Jesse to me less than two weeks ago and told them that I was no longer interested in providing a foster home for Jesse.  Jesse now has a "forever" home with me!

Boat sale update:

I placed an ad on craigslist.org last week listing my sailboat for sale at $1200.00.  My boat sale ad  includes a wealth of information and pictures.  Similar boats are listed from $1500.00 to $2500.00 so I thought there might be a quick sale in my future.  I only have about $200.00 invested in this boat.  I bought it for $400.00 and sold the outboard motor that came with it for $550.00.  Past due registration fees, trailer lights and a new tire brought my total investment to the $200.00 figure.  Starting today, I will reduce the price by $100.00 daily until the boat is sold!

I am sorry but I just do not have the time to talk about boats that someone else has owned or their boating experiences.  I have a dog who needs petting!


  1. Ha! Jesse maybe be a petting whore, but you're an enabler and a foster failure! Congratulations, Jesse! Game well played!

    Good luck with the boat sale. The powers that be say the economy is improving, that should help!

    Happy Trails, forever!

  2. You had me going there for a minute! :) Seems like you might get afflicted with 'wristastosis' from all that petting...

  3. I'm with Judy I thought "OHHHH NOOOO." Yea for Jesse, he's got a keepper too. He looks so much like my daughters beloved Tobey who will probably not be with them much longer. Keep the petting happenin!!!

  4. Aren't dogs wonderful. They bring such joy and love, no holds barred. Jesse looks beautiful, I can usndersatnd why he now has a "forever" home with you.

    Good luck with the boat sale.

  5. I love it when Katie lays her paw or head on me. Jesse REALLLY loves you, and I'm so glad you're keeping him. He's a really pretty dog.
    Good luck on the boat sale! :)

  6. unconditional love is what Jessie is showing!!..lucky you!..my boy?..he rolled in poop today at the park..now he is a stinky boy!!..of course we cleaned him up..but now he can really live up to his name!!

  7. That boat cover looks great. And it also fits well on the boat. Look like it is part of the boat already, just like the convertable car. Nice.
