Shotgun Cinnamon

When we get in my truck, Cinnamon rides in the passenger seat, in her doggie bed. Usually she will stand on her back legs and put both front paws on the armrest, and look out the window, for a short while and then she lays down on her bed.

They say that dogs can do, very human-like things, but today I looked over at her and I couldn't help but laugh. She was sitting upright and her right paw was resting on the armrest....just like a human!

And the look on her face in the second pic, was after I told her to lay down. Her expression reminded me of a human child....."But Mom, I called 'Shotgun'!

But what would happen if you were in an accident? Unrestrained dog?

Yeah, I know I should probably restrain her when I am driving.....say that would be a good topic for another post....to see how many people restrain their dogs when they travel, and how they restrain them.

I think I saw that one person lets his dog ride in the bed of the truck when towing his trailer.

A seven pound miniature dachshund required me to custom a harness because we could not find one small enough for her.

Yes she is restrain, no she is not happy about it but I got over it real quick.

I do think dogs have ridden in truck beds since trucks were first made. Only when big brother gets involved... Just sayin'.

Big brother has nothing to do with the laws of physics during an accident...
Love your pet - protect your pet.
EMS have plenty of stories about projectile pets...

In Texas it's against the law for any child under the age of 18 to ride in an open pickup bed - but nothing in the law about dogs.

I know a guy who let his Blue Heeler ride in the bed, one day he took off a bit to quick, his loaded horse trailer was not forgiving.
