More pictures of the Dogmobile
As I have mentioned before the dogmobile is my dad’s Gator. He always has at least one dog, usually two and sometimes four or five dogs riding along with him in the Gator. There are a couple of pictures of the dogmobile in this post. You can meet some of the dogs in this post and Bush the coon hound had his own post. With the exception of Bear the schipperke all of the dogs on the farm are strays that somehow made their way here.
I mentioned the wonderful weather we’ve had the last several days. 70’s and sunshine is hard to beat. That also means it is perfect weather to be out working on the farm so the dogs had plenty of opportunities to catch a lot of rides on the dogmobile the last few days.
According to Jason Bugle introduces himself like this: “My name is Bugle and I belong to Mr. Tom and I ride on the front seat of the Gator without exception.” By the way Bugle is the tall black and white border collie. We don’t actually know what his breeding is but he looks like a border collie with extra long legs. He is not to be confused with Bella the border collie who is also black and white.
Jason has also assigned some phrases to Bush the coon hound. According to Jason Bush introduces himself like this (and it must be said in a slow southern drawl): “Welcome to this farm, my name is Bush. Do you know how to run this machine?” Bush would be referring to the Gator as the machine. Bush lives to ride in the back of the Gator. He sleeps in the Gator waiting for someone to come and drive it around. Sometimes he refuses to get out of the Gator and my parents have to feed him in the Gator.
The other dog seen riding along on the dogmobile in these pictures is Trooper. Trooper is a 3-legged black lab mix missing his right front leg. Amazingly Trooper could be identical twins with another dog whom we lost this past summer. Sherman was also a 3-legged black lab mix missing his right front leg. I adopted Sherman many years ago from the shelter. He was the VP, Public Relations of my recruiting company and went to work with me in the fancy office park every day. My mom happened to be shopping at the mall when the local no-kill shelter Happy Tales was having an adoption day. She saw Trooper there and said for a second she got confused and thought she was looking at Sherman. So of course Trooper had a new home from that adoption day!!
