I see by the car that this was sometime ago, years ago. No intelligent person would subject their dog to this. I don't even like to see dogs riding in the back of pickups.Gary, are you off work today ? Seems like you have too much time on your hands

Wow, the things they came up with. I don't know if too many people put their dog threw that, even then. I would keep my dog in the car, if I had one. Very interesting though!

My dog rides inside the car, on my lap, where he is supposed to be.

I don't know, that seems like something most dogs would love! Why do you think they stick their heads out of car windows--to feel the cool rush of air all over their bodies! (Not my dog, of course. She cowers in fear whenever she's in a car). And it prevents dog fur from getting all over your upholstery. :)

Ah, the good old days, back when cigarettes were the answer to everything ;)

Looks like the dinners I had up until a year and a half ago. Maybe they smoked the dog from the car carier and ate it whilw they smoked their Camels ;-)

I don't think it's a matter of whether the dog would like it or not, it would be dangerous for a dog to ride like that.

and if a person is that worried about getting dog hair on their upholstery, don't get a dog. They shed, period. (even the breeds that claim not to shed, do. Just less.)

Yes, I was being facetious.

:D I think that invention is right up there with the "car seats" they used to put toddlers in when I was growing up - a vinyl seat and a plastic 'steering wheel' attached to a flimsy aluminum frame that hooked over the back of the car's front seat.

I can't tell you how many times my sister and I knocked down the baby's seat (baby and all) climbing over the seat to swtich places during a ride. :o My mom knew how to keep things fair. When we were halfway to our destination or half way home she'd say, "OK girls, switch places now." :dizzy:

oops! I am sorry!

Usually I'm really good with sarcasm, it's one of my favorite tones. Sometimes I can't always translate it through text.
