A Stone Brewing reference? One of my favorite breweries.

Maybe we should merge to Favorite Beers thread with the Dog thread?

Bastard! No pun intended. I still have never been there. Their beers are phenomenal, I've heard great things about their food, they're very supportive of homebrewers, and are a very forward thinking, out of the norm company. Can't wait to get down there.

Definitely my favorite brewery for food and beer. They did a great job with it architecturally, try to serve as many locally grown foods as possible and always have some excellent guest breweries on tap.

I'm in trouble in several months. They are opening a new, full brewery and restaurant about 2.5 miles from house (that is walking distance). I guess they are even planning a hotel the year after it opens.

At least this topic hasn't gone off topic...

But will they have full RV hookups? That would make for an interesting SMB gathering!

My cat likes to sit on the bench and look out the window. This pic looks like an early nineties senior portrait.

Great picture, although you should consider yourself lucky. Our dogs never give us that much space on the couch.

They think the doghouse refers to the entire vehicle.

Jeffrey,

what breed of dog is that? Perfect size for SMB travel. My Lab is not comfortable with the lack
of space to roam around.

Our dogs are not invited in the van. In the Bounder they are all over the place.

I'm sorry in advance because I know that this is going to rub some of you the wrong way, but I have never been comfortable with animals (including children) roaming free and unrestrained in moving vehicles.

When I travel with my dogs, they are in appropriate sized kennels or carriers, that are secured to the vehicle. It is for my safety, my animals safety and the safety of others - and I am by no means an overly protective safety-phobe. I do stupid things all of the time.

I am especially troubled by people that have animals in their laps and hanging out the window while driving - you think texting is distracting... the animals block side mirror visibility, forward visibility, steering ability...

In the event of an accident, Airbags can easily kill or badly hurt animals not secured by a restraint system. An 65 lbs dog sitting on the back seat is going to be a danger to passengers and the dog. You would not drive around with an unsecured spare tire sitting right behind you...

If "dogs are people too" then they need a seat belt!

My little guy (Buddy) uses a dog seatbelt that I purchased from Amazon.

In the pic below, we were on our way to get a harness instead of a collar so that he can ride more safely.

I was glad to read about the harness. My 1st reaction to the picture was: "That dog won't get any impact injuries, just a broken neck."

In the event of a head on collision our dogs probably will die of impact injury - from hitting us in the back of the head and breaking our necks. :a6:

Personally, I'm just going to try to avoid head on collisions and hope for the best but after my wife reads this, our next trip will probably feature a new harness and restraint system. She's the safety officer on this crew.
