December Photo of the Month: “Animals Onboard”

In our search for the December Photo of the Month (theme: “Animals Onboard”) we encountered hitch-hiking egrets and feral minks, stuffed bilge rats, and some unlucky fish who found themselves above water. More than anything, we learned that the world has a lot of sailing dogs. (Seadogs?)

One photo emerged as the favorite of our Facebook fans.

This eager pair is waiting for Mom & Dad to come home from shopping (and wearing their life jackets) in Salt Springs, B.C.

Congratulations to Mary Jayne Stevens, who submitted this photo, which will be published in the December ASA E-Newsletter!

Runner-up went to this photo of Nessie submitted by ASA Writer-at-large Meghan Cleary. (Hey, is this contest rigged??)

Lastly, my Editor’s Choice Award goes to Huey aboard Respite, sent in by Leila Mureebe, because it’s not every day you see a tongue like that.

Thanks to everyone who submitted and stay tuned for next month’s contest theme!
