My Troyka has the interior panels in it, so everything sticks to it, from mud to dog hair. Lots of surface rust to work on, but it was funny to see all he dog hair there. I had two other hack pups who passed away over a year back. I got to wondering just how much of their hair was mixed in there. Didn't have the heart to remove it. It doesn't really show when the seat is in place. Maybe I'll just let it remain for a while. I sure miss those two riding buddies; Baby and Bosco.
Yes, the hair belongs where it is now. Sorry as you would imagine about your losses. Spirit is my third Buddy...

Well....

It's been decided, we are going to add a four-legged friend to the family. Looks like a giant schnauzer is in the works from the schnauzer rescue. I'm wondering how he'll like the hack....

Sounds like being injured has given you some time for reflection.
Good luck with the rescue adoption.

We have since lost the big guy but Barney was a top dog in agility. This was from one of the events Cookie took them to after he retired. One of her friends just sent her this picture, they were always the talk of the town when they'd show up with the rigName:  IMG_0827a.jpg

So Saturday was the day. Misses Donkeys and I picked up our future hack buddy. Meet Bryson, our rescued giant schnauzer who seems to think he is a miniature schnauzer. He is a high in the running for world's largest lap dog.

121111194032

He has taken an interest in the hack, but I'm still awaiting parts to get it back on the road. In the meantime, he is more keen on my Jeep, and makes sure to keep his eyes on the road and let me know of any upcoming Sonic's.

I do plan on getting him in the sidecar this week for a ride up and down the street. I need to finish the harness first though.

Pup supplies

Finding the cushion for fido while riding seems to involve a lot of shopping. In my region there are a lot of furniture industry suppliers who make custom cushions at reasonable prices - you specify density of foam, thickness, and fabric and they provide. Mix and match on types and density of foam no problem.

If interested try a 'google' search with High Point NC in there somewhere.

Also, a local sheep farm sells tanned hides which make very nice and durable bed covers or warm throws for the fur faces.

Local Canoe / Kayak shop sells dog beds made with scrap material left over from making PFD (life jackets) and filled with foam from the PFD's. Definitely weather proof and reasonably priced - getoutdoors.com
various sizes. Great for a tub.

Got a name of the sheep farm?
And maybe a cushion place that you've dealt with?

I use a memory foam mattress for Barley. The regular foam make him bounce around a bit on rough stuff, sort of like a ball in a paint can. With memory foam he falls asleep on longer rides.

But using a fleece sounds interesting! My wife raises sheep, so getting one wouldn't be a problem. Heck, I might even keep the head attached so Barley could gnaw on the horns when he gets bored!

Schnauzers make wonderful hack buds, as did my pal, Bosco. Black ones are often difficult to film well in photos though. Bosco was a land walrus, in that she had pencil legs and a fat body. She was one of the most loving dogs on earth and we miss her greatly. Sadly, she passed away over a year ago. I am hoping to maybe get a giant schnauzer in the future. We just can't do it anytime soon, though. Still, I can dream and anticipate. :-) Enjoy your new bud.

Bryson's sitting drills in the hack are going well. He jumps right in and sits down. I'm still working on a harness system for him, so a ride won't happen until that is done.

(On the day we first met him, he decided to show off his agility skills at the park. What he demonstrated was his clumsiness, as he ran right into a picnic table which took all the hair from below his left eye.)
