I have always believed that our dogs have a real sense of what goes on in our lives. This story’s main character is a ghost, but it is his dog that steals the stage. The characters and locations are parts of people and places I have known in my long years surfing,sailboarding and being a boat captain around California, Baja and Washington State. Even though some people might think I modeled the story on something that really happened, I made it all up, honest. I hereby hold up my right paw and swear on my dog’s breath that this is fiction.
