Chris...the trick is what the dog thinks you're going to do once you are in the car. You need to throw in some trips to the dog park or your equivalent.

Would you willingly get in the car knowing you were going to have a needle stuck in you or stuff squirted in your nose when you arrived at your destination? Well, your dog's not stupid either. You need to take him on a date once in a while - keep him guessing!!

BTW, I keep a nail file for my dog on the end table in the living room. I file his nails a little bit whenever I watch TV. I haven't cut his nails in months.

Edie- good memory on my dog's name! Yes he loves that Airstream. In fact he will go with us this weekend to the North Ga Mountains.
Chris- I would put the dog in the car, give him a biscuit or snack treat, then let him out. Do that a few times, then take him for a short ride before you give the biscuit or treat. Soon he will love the car. More than you want him too...

Taking the dog to to the Vet....

I have never had any problem getting Sarah, our current Boxer to the Vet's. Never could figure out why she always got excited when we pull up and go inside until I found out....

When we first got her and she was under one year old, we would board her there when we went on vacation. They also have a kennel. Well what we found out was they liked her so much, they let her roam around the clinic during the day behind the counter and the exam rooms instead of keeping her in the run all day. Then the Vet was taking her home with him at night as he just grew to like her and he had young kids at home who loved playing with the never out of energy "Boxer Dog".

boxers

Bobby,

Are boxers the best dogs or what? Our boxer Buddy is the most loyal, dignified, intelligent and playful dog we have ever had! Keeps our yellow lab from spending the day sleeping, and absolutely loves the A/S! I pray that he has a longer time with us than our fist boxer, Dempsey, who will always be the dog to which all others are measured.

Camping without dogs is somehow lacking. We kenneled once, and will never do it again, its just not the same!

Angry Eating cars

My late, lamented Chow Chow ate the armrest of my old Celica. She got her intestines all plugged up with chunks of the vinyl and cost me a fortune at the vet.

BTW: I used to work with a guy named T. K. Chow. When we got the Chow Chow, we just naturally named her Tei Kai Chow. He found that out later by accident and never was very friendly after that.

I have to say I have loved all my dogs, cats, and other pets. We currently have a Turtle named Spike and a Schnauzer named Freddie. My son who is 8 has seen 2 of our cats and one of our dogs leave us. He has learned that is the way of life. I believe the highest show of love for a beloved pet is to find another to bring into your home when you lose a pet. So many animals need good homes. If you check out the GIF on th left you can see Freddie between my wife and myself. Freddie Is the only small dog I have ever had own me and I must say he changed my mind about small dogs.

BTW I believe that cats go to heaven also.

story

Thanks for posting the credits to that story. It has circulated around some working gun-dog digests I have been on and I didn't know where it originated.
I have always had 'bargain basement' dogs. The last two are real challenges. Wirehaired pointing griffons. Scruffy, smart you name it. They can open doors, car windows, car doors, cabinets, crates (both kinds). The good news is that they match my airstream in colour, but they are not allowed inside.

Have to thank Edie for pointing me in the right direction.
After the lead, I went out and searched thru the numerous "The Twilight Zone" websites until I found the Credit lines that I posted with the story. Like Edie's pointer, I really like to give credit were credit is due.

Regards;

Our travel companions

I posted this picture somewhere else I think, but any time I see doggie posts, I have to jump in, right?

Our Jack Russell Terriers are the main reason we purchased our Bambi. We take them to terrier trials all over the place and have met some wonderful people and dogs so far. The JRTs sure make themselves comfortable, wherever they are!
