Our dog Belle died this morning. She has been our sailing companion and friend since she was 8 weeks old and Mary and I will miss her dearly.

About Mike Jastrzebski

In September of 2003 my wife, Mary, and I moved aboard our 36-foot Sailboat, Roughdraft. It was our intention to take the boat south from Minnesota to warmer climates where I would write a novel. Six years later I have completed 3 mystery novels. I have published the first two books, The Storm Killer and Key Lime Blues as e-books and trade paperbacks. The third book, Dog River Blues will be released in early 2011. It is my intention to use this blog to share what I’ve learned while trying to get published. I will also blog about the trials and tribulations of living on a sailboat. We sailed the boat from Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama where we lived for two years. We also spent three months living in Key West. Currently, the boat is docked in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In 2011 we plan to take the boat to the Caribbean where we plan to drift until it is no longer fun.

    Mike and Mary, so sorry to hear about your Belle. Its a shame she couldn’t have stayed longer. My little Punky has been staying with a friend up in Alabama while I have been sidetracked to Texas and MD Anderson. I am three weeks almost four to the end of radiation. Everything looks good and I will really be glad to b e home and with my puppy. I know that little dog of yours can claw its way into your heart. Gerald

    Oh, no! I am so sorry. She was happy energy on four paws. I will always remember her because she resides on my wall, lounging by a first edition of Dog River Blues in her funny hat and sunglasses. How you will both miss her.
    Thinking of you. – Barb
