    This is Haley. Her first ride was at age 4 or 5 weeks. My friend was constantly checking on her and she slept most of the way home. The noise didn't seem to bother her at all but I'd still like to get her something to lessen the decibels. She just hates when I leave the house.

    Thanks for saying it first. I like my dogs more than most people. They are family. I read that the same way I’d read “I don’t get taking my son for a joyride stuff…” Your dog is living, breathing, thinking, feeling- one of God’s creations. Not just a slave tool for a hunt. I have plenty of hunting dogs in my extended family- they love it. They’re all in the trucks for joyrides too, and on the couches for movie night. I don’t get doing it any other way.

    Sorry, but most people's actions show a dog is a tool, it's just an emotional one. You wouldn't let your child ride in your lap, between you and the steering wheel/air bag, yet I see this daily with dogs. When people lose a child, they don't go out and try to replace them nearly immediately, like I see most dog owners do when their dog dies. I liked my dog and I will miss her now that she's passed...but she wasn't on the same level as my family.

    Good point.
    I'm working under my car in the driveway - got it up off the ground on jackstands. Wife sticks her head out the door and asks how much longer.
    "A while, why?"
    "I want to let the dog out."
    "So, let her out." sez I from under the car.
    "I'm afraid the car will fall on her..."
