In the "strange but
true" category..........Cody, the official mascot dog of
Poolandspa.com's Pet Supply Division, appeared in the February 2010
issue of "Ride" magazine, the magazine for PWC & boating enthusiasts.
Also appearing in the magazine was Sammy, The National Hot Tub Dog, and
Although this has absolutely nothing to do with pools
or spas, we do like to recognize the accomplishments of our dog
mascots....even if they are in other industries.

love boating and Sea-Doo riding....so we guess it all somehow makes
sense ! See the article below for more info.

Vegas. I am two years old and am a husky. Since my daddy has
a swimming pool, I have always liked water, even as a pup.

boat or sea-doo to enjoy. My brothers, Sammy, a golden
retriever and Sanji, another fellow husky, nagged and nagged
and nagged dad to get a boat like all the other dogs have.
Well Lucy, my persistence paid off and dad got us a Carver
Boat and a Sea-Doo this summer. I have attached some
pictures of us all enjoying ourselves on Lake Mead this past
August. Upon my suggestion, dad named the boat "A Dog's
Life", just like your column in the magazine. What a
We all love going on the boat and swimming in the lake. I
want daddy to take me on his Sea-doo, but he selfishly wont
let me go on that. I don't know why......but I will keep
nagging. I find persistence is a doggie's best asset. Don't

doggies about my fun summer, and me and my brothers can't
wait until it gets warm again to frolic in the lake next
Take Care !
