Call him Captain instead of sailor.
But say it in the same way on the same attitude.
IIRC the reason why dogs get on so well with humans it's because dogs are social animals.

Re: Food with maximum energy for minimum weight

I always wondered how I managed to walk flat out all day with a rucksack on sometimes skipping a lot of food, cycling is just not the same, it's easy when you're riding a bike to work at high levels of e...

I use a cheap 4mm one for summer but I just bought a 6 mm one as the 4 was cold for sub 10C. Despite the 4mm ones selling for 99 p in pound shops type shops they are now ...
