I am still working on my Dog Taxi build. My dogs are sure anxious to get it finished out and back on the road. I am takin' my own sweet time though, as a recent foot surgery has slowed down my progress a bit. I added some graphic decals and I am still waiting on my fenders to be completed with checkerboards, too. Lots to get done before we're back to riding about the neighborhood, but sooner or later we will get there. I can't wait to see all the UDF when my Dog Taxi is complete and the hack pups are riding in it. Got much more to do, first. Murph loves to dress up and stare out the dog hatch of the hack as we ride.

Even had a Dog Taxi t-shirt made up for myself:

Fenders and checkerboards

Got my fenders back, but just mocked or laying on top of the wheels in this photo. It does at least present some picture of what the Dog Taxi may look like as completed. Lots to do yet, but Murph still knows how to get in by himself and get ready to ride. I have a custom hack door that will be coming, so he will have to adjust to that a bit. He is used to riding with his head stuck out the dog hatch (door) of the hack.

Anyone seen the movie Red Dog? It isn't really about a hack pooch, but the dog does ride a motorcycle and other interesting rides during the movie. It is an Aussie movie, so it took me a bit to get into the language difference at first. Red Dog sure could be a hack buddy as evidenced by his attitude shown. Not sure what breed he is, but he was one cool dog and the story is all about him and his exploits; life and death. My hack pooches have many of the same qualities, so if you do see the movie, it is worth the price of rental and is a good family movie as well.

Some dogs wear them, some don't. The key to keeping Bryson in the Doggles is simple. Have them tight enough that they stay put without being too tight and keeping any stray hair out of his eyes. (Gotta keep that schnauzer beard and eyebrows out of the goggles). He likes them when we're moving. In the summer though, when we stop, he can't get out of them fast enough.

I trained Maddie by her wearing Doggles to go get the paper and short walks, both on leash. But she quickly learned to use the back right corner of the cockpit to push the Doggle up to her forehead -- 'bout the time I shift into 3rd gear and can't do a thing about it. Thankfully, she turns around a faces backwards after a few minutes of 45+mph travel. Our rides limited to leisurely day rides.
