These are the adventures of Andy and Sally Rawnsley on their narrowboat "The Puzzler". We have been living on the boat for over eight years now and are still loving it. Our Ulster born Shih Tzu, Shannon, has grown up, and has taken over the boat! After three wonderful years in Ireland, we transported The Puzzler to The Netherlands, and spent a year there. In 2015 we went southwards, to reach the north of France by June. After glorious weather throughout the summer, we arrived in Roanne in late October, and enjoyed our winter in this friendly port. We cruised extensively in France in 2016, returning to Roanne for a second winter.

March 2016. Dogs in the Port of Roanne in France.

Several dogs live on boats in the Port of Roanne, so I felt that it was time that they had their moment in the limelight!  Shannon, our Shih Tzu, and I are first on the list, living on narrowboat The Puzzler with Andy.


Moving clockwise round the port, next comes Jack, a miniature schnauzer, who lives with Pete on Rook.
Muttley and Baxter are two Tibetan Terriers who live with Jill and Graham on the tjalk François, together with Daisy the cat. They have moved on from narrowboat Matilda Rose, which is now for sale.
Find out about her on Apollo Duck.


Daisy lives with Millie and Robin on Taboe. Daisy's shadow shows that she is ready for anything!


Mick's dogs are Meg and Billy, who love to go rabbiting, while Frank is his assistant dog-walker. Mick's boat is Kirsten.


Jane and Dave's dogs, Benjie and Leisha, are the two largest dogs in port, but are probably the calmest! They live on Narwhal.



Contessa and Orphée live with Margaret and Alain on Duck Story. They are long-haired Chihuahuas and are very cute. Ces chiens sont très adorable!


Heidi is visiting Cassandra for three months, but is enjoying herself so much that she is considering staying! Heidi is a Llasa Apso.
The last dog in this canine gallery is Mister, who is a Lowchen. He lives with Gwen and Paul, who have come from New Zealand to explore the waterways of France. They recently set off on their summer cruise.
