In Seattle, Washington, they have had to pass a law that bans vicious Chihuahuas. It turns out, surprising as it seems, they were killing all the Rotweilers!

Well, we had 2 large dogs long before we bought our current truck and had them in mind when we bought the 4 door Dodge. I think you ought to buy a 4 door pickup and treat him like a part of the family.

We are going from Kansas to San Diego in May via the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. We are planning to take our 70 pound dog along. My truck is just a regular cab so short of putting him in the seat between us the only other options are in the bed of the truck in a cage or in the 5ver in a cage. I don't like the truck bed idea so the only option left is in the 5er in a cage. My wife's uncle seems to think riding in the 5er will make him sick.

Any suggestions?


To all with any interest,

Well we made the trip successfully and are now back home in Kansas. The dog rode some in the 5ver and some in the cab of the truck. He did extremely well and tolerated both areas very well with no adverse affects. When we felt temperatures were too high in the 5ver we put him in the cab of the truck. In the end the 3000+ mile trip was worse on me than the dog. I have been home since late Thursday and still have not recovered.

Try riding in the 5er some time. It bounces around so much you would likely be car sick within a mile. If you like your dog at all have him ride in the cab with you.

Huh! Bet when he was in the 5er he was sprawled on the bed with a smile on his face! Of course, when he felt everything slowing for a stop he jumped down and ran to the door and laid there looking neglected. How do I know this? long history of owning dogs.....LOL

Why should that rub you wrong? I value my cats over total strangers. And there are plenty of people out there not worth the breath they draw.

The day will never come that I'll allow a dumb animal to dictate/alter my lifestyle.

Hmmm? I would never 'allow' a dumb animal to dictate/alter my lifestyle, either. And I've owned animals all of my life. Go figure.

How do you have a pet and it not alter your lifestyle? They need walked, fed, taken to the vet, bathed and loved. Those things alter your lifestyle.
