Iceburg, The Trail Pup

Long ago, Jake and I adopted a dog named Bosco. He was our furry companion for the first 8 years of our relationship and one of our best friends. After he passed away, we decided to dedicate our life adventures to his “spirit”.

Over the last two years, Bosco joined us on our life aboard a sailboat and this boat was his namesake. During that adventure we adopted Pocket” who was symbolic of the real Bosco and our boat buddy.

Well today, we adopted “Iceburg” the trail pup. She is a baby malamute who was originally born in the Antarctic Research Center, and in the mood for an adventure. As Pocket still lives on s/v Bosco, we were in need of another companion and Iceburg fits the bill. A perfect match to accompany us on our journey up the Te Araroa in just a few days’ time.

And even though he isnโ€™t with us physically, Bosco’s spirit lives on in our hearts as we begin our new adventure.

  1. This is really funny. Hope your pup doesn’t slow you down too much ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Just a FEW concerns: is he/she current on vaccinations? spay/neuter? needs a collar with proper ID. (good luck with the address and phone number) Microchip that is a universal chip. Is she/he spayed or neutered? I did not notice any nail trimmers, dog shampoo, brushes or grooming products on your gear video.
    Most important of all; did you pack enough poop bags? Love you!

    • hahaha! Yes she is all updated and chipped and raring to go! The dog will share shampoo with us (i.e. bathe in rivers and streams). Trail pup doesn’t require grooming she’s too tough for such things. Luckily she’s trained to poop in holes and ditches so we’re all good there too! Thanks for the advice ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Great to see what you doing
