    Here's a new thread for those of us that take along a partner who rides shotgun. This is "Gunner", a 4 year old English Bulldog that loves to go plowin--or any other bye-bye for that matter. My windows, steering wheel, seat covers, plow control and everything else in the cab is COVERED in slobber after a long night of plowing. 2 years ago, when I was out doin some sidewalk work, he hopped up on the door top and stepped down on the door lock and there I was--stuck out in the cold... :realmad: mad as hell, because I was stupid enough to NOT leave the window down a bit while he was in the truck. Gunner did not mind--he was still in the nice warm truck barking at me. Fixed that little problem though--I took the door lock mechanisms out of the drivers door on my plow trucks. Anyway, show us your plow partners--pets or humans. Oh yeah--I know you can see his "lipstick" HE gets that way when he knows we are going somewhere. :dizzy:

    Expensive??? How about priceless!! He is my best buddy and as loyal as they come. That "chit" is his "business".

    there's nothing better than a loyal dog, and it don't matter what breed. Gunner looks like he has a lot of character!! He looks like a good boy!

    I love bulldogs. I haven't owned one yet, but I plan to when I have my own place (college). That's a nice looking dog right there.

    If I remember right, you are a Marine, is that why you own a bulldog? If so Semper Fi! He's a looker.

    Awesome dog. My next dog will be another bulldog, english or american. Gotta love a good buddy to talk to after 12 hours of plowing.

    I take my wife's black pug, Onyx out for a few driveways. Loves to go for a ride and he doesn't take up too much room.

    I would think dogs would fall off the seats every time you plow into a snow bank or back up quickly etc

    He hasn't ridden with me yet because, even though he loves riding in th ecar, he can get whiney and restless which gets annoying fast. I'll try him out one of these days.

    My Boxer used to ride shotgun. She hit the dash twice. After that as soon as she heard the plow go down she would jump down and lay on the floor, then get back up when we hit the road again.
