In Lucky for Me , Frank Robson and his partner, Leisa Scott, rescued Lucky, a mischievous, cream-coloured terrier from Death Row, and embraced him as the third member of their high-spirited, boat-mad family.

Now, Frank relates how a curse seems to hover over the three of them as they try to set out on their long-planned, open-ended cruise. Instead of the adventure of a lifetime, there is bad weather outside, bad blood on board, and bad luck besetting them at every turn.

But when the trio do finally escape land, there are beautiful islands to explore and plenty of escapades to be had with a motley crew of colourful characters, crocodiles, feral cats, sharks, snakes, and even a new love interest for Lucky.

Lucky Goes to Sea will take you on an unforgettable journey, with a four-legged hero guaranteed to make you laugh and steal your heart.

    Comments about Lucky Goes to Sea:

    This is the second tale of Lucky the wonderful, mischievous and high-spirited terrier, by his owner Frank Robson. Lucky For Me introduced us to Lucky, and told how he was saved by Frank and his wife Leisa from death row…now he continues the story of the boat-mad family and their travels on the trip of a life time aboard their yacht, Tradewind.

    The adventure they have been planning for years sees them sailing up the north coast of Queensland, in amongst the islands and atolls…fighting the authorities about Lucky not being able to go into the National Parks, the bad weather and storms, the engine problems with Tradewind, and Lucky himself, and how he can 'talk' to his humans, how he gets between them when they argue, and his absolute hatred of cats!

    But along with all the problems they encounter, they also enjoy the beautiful islands, and meet some colourful characters, plus you will laugh at Lucky's antics along the way. He is sure to steal your heart, as he is a very devoted and loyal member of the crew, and will let nothing come between him and his beloved humans.

    A truly delightful doggy tale!
