doggy mobiles..

we have a Landrover defender for our crew, it's nothing flash but it does the job and is as dependable as the day is long.

so what do your canines travel in?

No picture but we have a 2000 Accord EX coupe with leather seats and retracting sun/moonroof. After experiencing leather upholstery and the opening roof, as long as I have a dog, I'll opt for those -- hair cleanup so much easier, summer heat buildup so much reduced.

I fully recline the front passenger seat and Puff alternates between either laying down on the back seat or riding shotgun in front with me, parking her butt halfway up the seatback and with her front legs splayed out on the seat cushion to counter turns, decelerations; she acts and looks like a very serious copilot in that position.

ETA: My car looks just like this one (in color, upholstery but mine is a stick 5 spd):

My car sucks with more than one dog! It's a hatchback, but the trunk isn't big enough for a crate, the backseat is small and even when I have it covered with a tarp, the dogs end up with fur alllll over the place.

I've got a 2006 VW Golf in black, sort of like this one:

2000 Daewoo Leganza. I'm quite sure I've never photographed the car.
This is pretty much what she looks like

New 2008 Element "Dogmobile" - this vehicle was bought solely with the dogs in mind. So far I've just removed one back seat and thrown 2 dog beds in it. My plan is to be able to carry them more safely in crates.

Here's the Cooper-mobile!:



But I think he might be trading it in for one of these:



We're moving north and need something that sits higher than our current set of wheels. I'm a little sad about that, as I love driving our car.

We travel to events and practices in hubby's Chevy Avalanche. This is the only pic I have of it. We were stopped at a McDonalds and Spud was taking in the scenery.




Around town, they travel with me in my TrailBlazer. I have no pics of it, but this is what it looks like.



A couple of times, I've taken Sally and Spud by myself to an event. We go in the TrailBlazer. Here is Sally and Spud helping me pack up the TrailBlazer for one of those events.

Last spring, we got a truck like this.. only dh's is green.

If we are going to the lake, we assemble thier travel crates in the back and 'tie' them down.

It's funny because Bauer prefers to ride in DH's vehicle. If he knows we are going "bye-bye", he automatically goes to DH's car. He is always disappointed when he has to get in my car.

If Bauer is with me, he has to ride in the Maxima:


He prefers to ride around in DH's van:

Word of "warning" on the Odyssey- according to someone I work with who has one, they go through tires rather quickly, and the under carriage sits lower to the ground then other mini vans. That's the only negatives I've heard about them, tho.

Just got a new car last spring with Jake in mind (and soon-to-be #2 dog)! Bev I think you'll love a Rav-4 :) I was sad to get rid of my Jetta, but now I don't miss it at all!

During the lack of drivers license to drive a car, we cycle a lot ...



And Laika is sitting behind in her crate on wheels behind the bicycle ;)

And for the rest, i drive a motorcycle (a Ducati monster) ...



But the last one is not suitable for transporting a dog :D
