    Not anymore, because he would put me in a head lock while stuffing his head out the window barking:confused:o_O

    Not so much anymore as they've gone blind but they used to love it. Nothing like riding around with your dogs....

    Regretfully, we don't have a dog now.

    But...I've had two dogs over the decades and each lived to about 12 years.
    One a Razorback hound and the other an Australian Shepard/Border Collie.

    Absolutely....I always had them ride up front with me.
    Even if it meant putting a cover over the seats during the muddy/snowy weather.
    A dog a is family member and they get the same comforts I do....or better.

    I sure do miss both of those quadrupedal companions.

    Great pic of your 'companion'.....carry on....

    They have over the years and I love it. My Spitz (American Eskimo) loved riding in the MGs with the top down

    Yes, especially if we're going to the lake. When he sees the travel bag, he'll run out the back door and wait by the truck.

    Sadie lives for rides in the truck. She knows When the weekend is here, and stares a hole in us until she gets a ride.

    When I lived in the country my old Westie Sugar, used to stand on my lap holding onto the steering while i held the wheel and drove. I suppose she thought she was doing her part for the journey.

    My White Shepherd Tiny make such a mess in the car so she doesn't get to go too many places. Having to vacuum the entire car and clean the dog drool off the doors and windows gets old really fast. I do feel guilty going for walks in the park without her though so she gets to go there. I'd really love to have a small SUV so she could ride in the back. Someday.

    Mine loves to ride, and always gives me the look when she can't ride along:(
    The truck is Mabel's favorite cause she gets to ride shotgun:cool:

    The cat is another story! Had to take him to the veternary last week, took three days to get him in the carrier and he yowled all the way:confused:

    When I had dogs, they did. I learned not to take my last one through the car wash. Every now and then I take grandpup to an appointment, but not often.

    Every day. Almost everywhere. I have two black labs -- an 8-year-old mother and her 1-year-old daughter. They have to go to school with me. They sit in my office while I teach, and I take them out on walks periodically.

    ya know they say if you wonder long enough you'll find out. I see dogs smashed all over the freeway quite often, wonder how does a dog get across the freeway? answer some dipstick who rides around with his/her window down, dog in lap dog jumps out the window when traffic slows down gets run over 3 times before they hit the ground owner doesn't even stop bec the dog is dead meat. Seen it happen.

    dogs should be seat belted and restrained just like your kids and if they aren't then you don't give a hoot about your dog. irritates the living crap out of me to see this type of irresponsible behavior. there you asked for it.

    if you keep your windows up your okey but riding around with a dog in the lap windows down or bouncing around unrestrained its very close to being criminal IMO. thank you for keeping your pets safe at home.

    Rides in the back, never up front, too dangerous.

    Certainly, he's a very good passenger. Very calm and doesn't move around much.
