I haven't seen that, but I'm sure once I do I will be upset. We rented a pickup truck in the fall, and while we allowed to dogs to sit in the back, we never drove them around in it like that. I wouldn't think of it. I can understand if you were living in the country and didn't drive very quickly, but in other cases no way. I once saw a Neapolitan Mastiff in the open bed of a truck and boy was I mad.

they probably figure the "average" dog owners would have enough sence to not do that after all the dog obviasly was a stunt dog. in wi ur not allowed to unless theres some kind of restraint in the back. We'd never throw the dogs in the back of our truck but if we did u bet they'd kenneld up!

They probably just wanted a "country look". Rough and tumble.

I was just as disgusted with this commercial as I was with Bush's campaign ad with the wolves. (You can bet I threw a royal fit over both of them!!) Here are some "fun" dog-in-pickup facts:

If a dog jumps from a truck onto asphalt going only 15 miles an hour, there's a 90% chance that all four of his legs will break, preventing him from escaping traffic.

If a dog jumps from a truck onto concrete going 15 miles an hour, there's an 85% chance that his vertebrae will shatter.

Dogs that are tied in the beds of trucks have been known to jump out, still tied, and either drag along to road or hang themselves.

If a dog is riding with his head out the window or in the bed of a truck without eye protection, a foreign object (road debris, blowing dirt or salt, etc.) can become lodged in the dog's eye. At 50 miles an hour and above, the dog will probably be blind and may loose the eye. Under 50 miles an hour, the eye may be saved by a surgery that can cost up to $4000, depending on the depth and character of the foreign object.

SO DON'T DO IT!!!!
And get a pair of Doggles. http://www.doggles.com/

I think this needs to be copied and put in the glove box so that a person could hand them out when it is necessary! At least it couldn't hurt. So many people just don't realize what they are doing until it is to late. Thank you for this post!

I've actually gone so far as to put that information under the wipers of parked pickups with dogs in the bed! I just HATE to see a dog in the bed of a truck when there's clearly more than enough space for them inside the cab!
