    Newfie-Poodle mix? So would that be a Poofie or a Noodle? :lol3

    Maybe a "Poof" for short. Also have a Newf named Zeuf, but I don't think she'd fit in a Velorex even if she wanted to! IMG_5563.JPG

    That looks like a lot of dog hanging outside of the sidecar. You may be better off with a Ural or Ural-like tub for that big dog. Meatloaf is probably about the same size as your pooch, just meatier at 150+ pounds. The picture shows how he fits in a Ural tub with a 2" thick pad on the floor and a 2" pad replacing the original seat back upload_2017-8-30_10-54-17.jpeg .

    Well , see'ns how we lost our little Gracie dog a few months back. if your want'n to move that black & white beauty to a good home and a bigger hack , were prepared to take her off your hands:clap
    We'll offer money or barter our way to see she gets the kind of care and fun times that most all dogs love on our sidecars......... by the way what's that rascal weigh :brow oh never mind , we'll get her in there, we can get Charlie" my sons goldie in the little D/S. I'm sure it be no problem.
    Anyhoo , beautiful canine buddy you have there and looks to have a great and loving personality :thumb IMG_7961.JPG

    Sorry to hear about your Gracie, Triumphsidehack. : (

    My wife doesn't own a gun, but if she thought I was considering a deal to move our Newfie, Zeuf .... she'd get one just to shoot me with!:lol3
    Zeuf is a female and she weighs about 115 lbs. I didn't even try to get her in that Velorex sidecar because she can be a little skittish. I may try it though if I end up with a decent sized hack.

    Rudi on the other hand (here he is with his hair cut), is so laid back, he seems to be willing to do anything! Rudi with Cut.jpeg

    Thank you Triumphsidehack. Umm ... well, we have a third dog too. Her name is Lana. She is a Havanese rescue and she would definitely fit in any sidecar or maybe even a tankbag. And she loves our black and white newfie and follows her wherever she goes! : )

    Couple of pix of the weeks past when Oklahoma was still green and lush...

    Typical "hidden hollow" in Eastern Oklahoma. There are hundreds of these beautiful little gems of a valley tucked away and hidden from all but the local rancher and guys on Urals with dogs. :-)

    Saline Courthouse - Rose, Oklahoma. Amazing local history here. Last of the Cherokee District Courhouses standing. Lots of ghosts haunt this place for sure. Some bad, some beautiful. Beautiful, beautiful spot.

    It's a bit hard to get a pic of Eddy in the car as he makes a den up front,

    For that budget you have a lot of choices on used ones that are already professionally put together. Cheaper to buy an existing rig than it is to put it together. If you are mechanically inclined and don't mind staying around 55 mph then the newer Urals would be fine. Happy hunting.

    Pix from the last two weeks.

    Dogs are pros now after about 4k country miles. Salli - the larger brindle dog - used to lay down all the time (anxious) and now she is up the ENTIRE time smiling and checking it all out. Leaning into the wind and into turns and really digging the whole thing. Elijah - the littler Shepard/Beagle dog - is now the major snoozer who loves to nap. LOL.

    Best are the farm/ranch dogs who look totally perplexed at what the Ural is and especially the dogs in the sidecar. Salli and Elijah have the biggest (I swear) poop eating grin on their faces when they interact with the locals - like "heh, pretty cool huh?". LOL.

    Eastern Oklahoma. If you choose correctly, one can hit (almost) all dirt (well, here it is sharp rock and gravel) roads for 100s of miles.

    Spoke to a work colleague who's uncle is the local county commissioner (responsible for roads, etc) and asked her to tell him to KNOCK IT OFF with the rural road improvement. She laughed as she knows I like the rough gravel/rock roads...

    Ural just ticks along like a massive industrial sewing machine. It was MADE for exactly what I ride. I never imagined a life like this with my dogs was possible. What a blessing and joy in life...

    The "low road" from Terasita to Littefield's Creek Crossing...

    Confederate General Stand Watie's grave site. Also Major and John Ridge's.

    [​IMG]

    Stand was the man. The only Confederate Brigedere General who was an Indian. Co-led an attack at Cabin Creek that resulted in over 300 wagons with vital supplies for the Confederate Indians. And the LAST to surrender. Easy to understand his support of the Confederacy considering he was fighting the same entity that forced his tribe onto the Trail of Tears.

    The Cherokee, and other Indian, history here is still tangible and awesome.

    Major and John Ridge were caught up in their own Civil War, a Cherokee Civil War that is. Tough stuff to live here... These guys were proponents of moving the tribe out west. Lots of emotions and resentment from all sides (whites, pro-movement and anti-movement Cherokees). Major and his son were ambushed and killed on the same day.

    Beautiful place to be buried upon a hidden Oklahoma prairie. I hope to be so lucky and remote in my peace...

    Great pic!

    (Doggles look to be riding low - might need an adjustment, or just upgrade the pup to some RexSpecs....)

    She had made a tweed cap for him for the DGR and integrated it with the doggies. Doggle/cap combo blew off on the way to the ride and were picked up torn in half and with one lens gone. We wired everything back together but the fit was, um, sub-optimal.

    New doggles on order.

    That sounds awesome -
    Did you get a pic before it "jumped" off?
    Can we see it?
