Car Dogs

Well, I guess you could call him a truck dog. They came up and parked next to us at the drive through. There was a boat hooked to the back of this truck. I'm thinking this man and lab are headed to the water.


Now he's checking me out. He looks happy enough.



Hope they had fun!

What a lovely fella...I'll bet he's a true water dog, which makes me wonder how his master keeps him in the boat!! Nice shots here...

I'm sure he had fun but I would think that would be dangerous to the dog!

It worries me to death to see a dog riding like that in the back of a pickup truck. I've even seen dogs riding like that in the back of a truck darting in and out of heavy expressway traffic and I have to close my eyes (No, not when I'm driving) until they are totally out of my sight range.

He looks like he's ready for some fun! Great picture!

Oh my, it looks like a Rottie, and that doesn't look like a safe spot for a dog, to me, Ann! People take large dogs in back of pick up's around here all the time, and I worry about them when I see them. Two years ago a Dalmation jumped out in moving traffic and got killed. But the dog probably likes it up there.

Have a great day!

I was wondering if anyone would pick up on the danger of this ... the man has a lease on the dog and it was attached to the truck. When they came into the parking lot, the dog was standing on the toolbox in the truck facing the front of the truck and was getting all the wind over the top of the cab... I'm sure that's his favorite riding place...but it seemed especially dangerous to me...

You were safer with the dog on the leash!

But if he falls off, its going to be bad.... very bad!

I don't know how they keep the dog in the truck, what if they had to put the brakes on fast. Very nice pictures and thank you for coming by.

Ann,

What a nice shot. The dog sure seems to be happy sitting back there.

Glad you had a great Mother's Day. Hope you're also enjoying a relaxing evening.

Blessings,
Mary

I think some states now have laws against dogs riding in the back of open trucks... it IS very dangerous, and the leash could end up hanging the poor fellow.
My dog used to LOVE sticking his head as far out the window as his head could get - but he was never allowed in the back of a moving truck.

Out of curiosity I googled laws dogs open truck and was amazed at the laws prohibiting transporting dogs in this manner. Google it to see what the law is in your neck of the woods.
