Turtle, that's an awesome invention. I thought about making an aluminum ramp and stowing it behind the cab, but that idea is much better. (But we don't know those steps were for the dog. Maybe they were for the driver's wife. Lol.)

Should be adopting 2 young puppies (8 weeks old) early next week. Unfortunately I wont be able to bring them with me in a daycab. Someone left mama and her 7 pups in the parking lot of Mason City IA humane society. I wanted 1, wife wanted 2 so we compromised and will be getting 2 rofl-1.gif

For those of you not sure how to get your dog into the truck, I came across this sometime back and took a screenshot. Looks like it folds up and stows away easily. No clue where to get it.

Always wondered how, if I ever got on the road, and found a company that would allow a 90lb dog - how to get my "little girl" rottie in and out of a truck. Yet another reason why I'm not out there - single, no one to take care of my girl, and couldn't fathom getting rid of her.

Rob, smart man. Reasonable compromise. Happy wife, happy life.

BTW, kudos to you for rescuing those 2 pups.

Rick: I understand your pain. I lost my dog-sitter and need to stick around home for Moocho Poocho. No viable alternatives at this point unless I get a wife just to watch the dog. But that's why Turtle's pet steps caught my interest, although taking a 105 lb. shedding dog is not very realistic or even permitted.

This is Bourbon. We adopted her from a local rescue 2 weeks ago. She is home with me getting trained to go on the truck with hubby and I. She got her first taste of the truck today when we dropped him off from his home time. She did good at the truck stop, didn’t seem skittish of all the noise and big rigs. She sniffed around inside the truck and in no time was laying down and falling asleep with the vibration as he warmed up the truck. Hoping by September she will be ready for the road, she is just shy of 3 months right now. Anyone else take a young pup on the road and how did they do? I think until she is older I will have to be on the road with them, drivers have enough to deal with without having to worry about a puppy crawling under his feet while driving.
