Poop and Scoop

I have read somewhere that the reason why dogs keep turning round and round
is that they want somehow to align themselves with the local magnetic
field. So to do their business, they have to find the proper alignment.
squat, keep their balance and do it while staying relaxed. It was quite
mission impossible foe Tifille at the beginning, especially on a boat
bouncing all over the place. But she finally mastered it doing it in the
cockpit under the supervision of Jean-Paul who proves to be very patient
and understanding. However to perform that exercise, she first has to eat
and that is not going very well. She keep sliding out of reach of the food
bowl. Same problem for the water. However she has now settled down in a
routine where she communicates with us her needs quite clearly. She will be
so happy to reach land !
This morning shortly before nine 0'clock Jean-Paul spotted a whale crossing
our course. We saw it very very close. But it did not seem to bother her.
We have ran into a problem with the refrigeration on the boat. Both the
freezer and the fridge have stopped working and we have identified the main
cause as being the batteries not keeping a charge at all. We probably will
have to install new batteries on arrival.

It's heartbreaking but we're trying to get over it. As disappointed as we were, I think that somehow you have to find a way to think that it happened for a reason. See the link below for more info.
