While sailing, Biscuit was in need to empty his bowels, yet the boat was pitching around a bit, so he was quite hesitant to go forward to use the dog mat. After several stressful back and forths between the mat and cockpit, he settled on defecating right next to us on deck, by the cockpit. We held his harness loosely as he squatted at his ease, stroked his fur and whispered soothing solace into his large, floppy ears.
A moment later the deed was done, Biscuit hopped into the cockpit while I handed Kristen a biobag. Without leaving the comforts of snuggling with the other dog, she cleaned up the mess so no one was the wiser.
