This is a weird topic to bring up, but I "feel the need". Back in the day (late 80's) I had a Schnuaser that loved to ride with me on my Tri-Z. He figured out , sitting in front with his back pressed against me, how to read my steering input an would lean into corners. All you ASPCA freaks can chill because this dog actually went into pout-mode when I didn't take him. When he was on, I took things easy. Fast forward 18 years. My wife wanted to get a dog. You know how that goes: she got what she wanted. What entered our house was a "bish-poo" I can't even spell the first part, but I'll try: Bishawne, and then Poodle. Translation? P_ssy/foo-foo dog. I about puked. This thing looks like a friggin' cloud with legs. Anyway, time drags on and he's grown on me. Well, he followed into the shop and jumped on the floorboard of my Outlander. (No kidding, if I get on the quad now, he will have jumped on and is ready to ride). I sat him on the seat and fired up the motor. He put his front paws in the airbox cover and had his head on the Flexx-bar pad. I took him for a ride. Then another, and another.....Now: If that little sh_t hears a quad fire up and he's inside, he starts pawing at the door, windows, walls, etc. And yes, he has figured out how to lean into turns and anticipate bumps. This puss-dog has turned into a four legged quad freak! I guess the moral of the story is multi-faceted: Yes, you can create a monster. Dogs are good:it's
how you raise them---you hear that Micheal Vick? It doesn't matter if it's a Pit-bull or a poodle!!!!!! And be careful what you wish for: a dog that loves to ride can be a pain in the a$$!!!
I'll post some pic's of foo-foo, er Luke later on.....
