Just had my car serviced. - 'So what', I hear you say!!!

Well It was also my annual MOT inspection, (Legal maintenance requirement here in good old Blighty!!). So I check the miles I have done since last year, comparing the two certificates.

Less than 5k

So guess what took the hit on the mileage front?- Yup, the good old Silver Wing.

My wife is convinced that if there was a way in which I could get her, (that's no problem), AND the two dogs on the 'Wing' the car would go. (- Too true. Twisted Evil )

Just wondering how the UK plod would feel if I had a trailer with the two dogs in??? A nice perspex dome to give them good visibility! A ventilation system so they get plenty of air!!! Got me thinking now!!!!!!

I know one guy in California I believe, modified his seat to get a small dog in, two larger hounds make that a non starter! Then of course there is the wife sitting on what is effectively a mobile commode!!

Anyone out there tried anything similar? (Not the commode thing either!!). Laughing

There's a company in Holland that builds dog-specific trailers, Doug.
In all respects the trailers conform to UK Regulations.

I'll find a link.

Brilliant, thanks Mike. I reckon the dogs would love that.

Will now start working on 'er indoors'!!!!

% chance success! = 0. But you gotta try. Smile

My dog, Moose has ridden hundred of thousands of miles with me, top box or tank/middle hump bag-----don't think he would like to suck exhaust fumes in trailer.

This thread reminded me of a fellow, since passed on, who rode with his two basset hounds. I encountered him once or twice shortly after I began riding, as we are both originally from York, Pennsylvania.

One way or another, I suppose it can be done!
