Join a Canine Costume Cruise, Arf Arf

A new Marina del Rey outing, and a long-standing San Diego lark, are just ahead.

TAIL-WAGGERS AND WATER? They do love it. They'll lap it up, from their bowl, several times a day, leaving a little droplet trail along the kitchen floor to let mom or dad know how much they do appreciate the fact that there is always fresh H2O to enjoy. The pool? You've all known that pooch that sails into the deep end without a pause on the pool deck to think things over. And even the bathtub, the nemesis of some barkers out there, is a favorite among certain fur-sporting bathers. Throw the ocean into the mix and you have some dogs who'll be smiling, as only dogs can do, from floppy ear to floppy ear. But if you don't have a beach date in the works, worry not, for there are a pair of Hornblower outings coming up, one in Marina del Rey and one in San Diego. And, yes, they both involve...

YOU AND YOUR DOG ON THE WAVES, taking a canine-sweet cruise together, which is not an opportunity that trots along all that often. Dogs on Deck Yappy Hour Cocktail Cruise, a new two-hour cruise in Marina del Rey, sets sail on Saturday, Oct. 20. Geordi La Corgi and Stanley the Husky will be two adorable celebrity guests, while a doggie goodie buffet from Petco will provide the noshables. Is there a Halloween dress-up contest for the pups? "Woof," which means "you bet." And if you happen to be at...

BEAUTIFUL SAN DIEGO BAY... the next day, on Sunday, Oct. 21, hop on, with your hound, the Bow Wow Brunch Cruise. It's an annual fundraiser for the Helen Woodward Animal Center, in Rancho Santa Fe, and also includes costume fun, a dog trick contest, all sorts of dog-pleasing nummies, and lots more. Plus Darris Cooper, a dog expert who will appear on both cruises. Is this something your four-footer'll be jazzed about? Time on a boat, in costume, with treats and attention? Look into tickets at once, for one of the quirkiest canine events on the calendar.
