OK...My choices for a road buddy are an Italian Greyhoud and a Chihuahua...
Both little dogs and both very uninterested in traveling with me.
Post pictures of your Jeep Dog and tell us your story!
I used to run around with a Yellow Lab that loved water...
Hunter...I lived by the beach and there were also lots of lakes. Hunter would jump out of the Jeep and go after anything with wings. I took him for a walk one day by a small lake. We came upon mom and child feeding ducks. Hunter took off, dragged me for a few feet and went right for the ducks....he got one as it was trying to take off. Mom and child were horrified...
Maybe a Labrador is a bad idea?
In memory of Hunter...the best Yellow Lab that ever lived!
I have a cattle dog mix. Cooper weighs about 50 pounds and he LOVES riding with me. So much so that I built him a custom padded bench on which to rest his forearms as he hangs out the side of the half door.
Even if I don't have anywhere to go I will usually take him for a ride in the evenings just because of the obvious thrill he gets from the experience.
Can you tell my boys are grown and I have no grandchildren?
Here is my German Shorthair- he's my bird dog and primary ride along while wheeling. If you look close at the second picture you can almost see him and my other two- a border collie and miniature Australian Shepard. They all love riding in the jeep... Almost as much as they love their food.
My jeep dog is a Weimaraner, although she isnt the best jeep dog because she thinks she is a mountain goat and climbs up as high as she can to look over the top of the cage. Whenever she rides in my truck she climes up on the tool box and looks over the cab. Needless to say she doesnt ride in the back of the truck very often. I think one of those Smittybilt CRES cargo nets are in my future.
my pal is rooney a shelter mutt. Loves riding in the jeep and hangs way out so he can sniff everything as we pass it. He hasn't ridden in it wit the top on so it may be interesting come wintertime. He looks like a black and white collie mix and maybe lab or something
