A week or so ago I, with the help of the family cat (yuck), posted a thread to find out if other dogs, like me, had problems dealing with the half-door on our TJ when I ride in the front seat. Like a lot of dogs, I love to hang out the window but the top of the door is so low that I have come close to falling out.
I got a lot of responses about clever ways to use a leash/tether to keep me from falling out but, to be honest, they would really only be helpful if I wear a harness which - speaking from someone who has worn them - can be a pain in a pooch's furry butt.
Well, my master used his ingenuity and oppose-able thumbs and came up with a solution. Since I know a lot of dogs and dog owners read this forum I thought I would post some pictures of my new 'air surfboard'. It just slides right down on top of the door. I can stand on my rear paws and prop on my forearms while hanging out the window and feeling like I am my favorite cartoon hero - 'WonderDog' (remember him?).
Master has already applied for a patent for this idea that he thinks will one day net him tens of dollars. However, since he has received so much help from WF members he is willing to freely share his concept with you.
As for me, I can't wait for our evening ride. Just wait 'til that mangy-haired jeep chasing mutt down the street sees me. I can see the extra drool coming off those chops of his now!
From my neighbor's dawg: Woof, woof woof woof, woof!!! *snif*
and from my car: ROWR!!! FFFT!
Looks like your owner deserves a treat!
06 Rubi with some sort of double ended, chrome knobbed, cross threaded, infinitely adjustable, frequently breakable, worn out flammywhammers zip tied onto it.
It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!
Be careful it looks like the cat would also like it as a scratching post.
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
My owner thanks you guys for all the props. We have debated about painting it white or leaving it natural with some clear polyurethane to protect it - sort of the 'woodie' look... like the old wagoneers.
