Going for a Ride with Porkchop

Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear. Dave Barry

Why do dogs like to ride in cars?

Have you ever wondered that? I have and I think other people have wondered the same thing because I found many reasons out there on the internet (so you know they have to be true) so I though I would share them with you.

A New Adventure

Porkchop know that as soon as I get his collar and say, “Let’s get your clothes on!” it’s time to go for a ride in the truck. It’s all he can do to contain himself. He knows that getting in the truck is going to take him to a field where he can run, or to the store where he can go pick out a new toy or we are going hiking.

His Home Away From Home

Porkchop thinks of the truck as his third home. His kennel is his second one. He is very comfortable in there and the back seat is large enough that he can roam around.

The Dog Feels Like it is on a Hunt

The speed of the car and the forward motion and being surrounded by other cars can give a dog the feeling like it is in a pack.

Porkchop Wants to be With Me, Wherever I Go!

I think this is the biggest reason. Porkchop and now Applesauce just want to be with us. Whether we are at home or going out the door, they want to be near us.

Dog Owner’s Must Haves

Porkchop and Applesauce on a Hike

Applesauce is just 8 weeks old. Isn’t she the cutest thing? She is so tiny and she is full of energy. I know these breeds of dogs are indoor dogs, but this one loves the great outdoors. We are at Angel’s Camp, Ca. There are wonderful hiking trails here.

I shared the first time we took Porkchop camping and hiking. Today’s post is the first time we took Applesauce on her first hike.

She walked her little legs off all day. She didn’t want to be held or put in her basket until the end of the day.

Applesauce loves her Porkchop and she will follow him anywhere.

It’s the end of the hike and we are getting ready for a picnic. She is exhausted at this point and is finding comfort in her daddy’s arms.

We are Two Rescue Dogs with a Blog!

This blog is all about their adventures. These two dogs are the best of friends. Porkchop will do anything for Applesauce and she loves him like crazy!

Porkchop and Applesauce are both rescue dogs.

I found Porkchop about eight years ago dogging semi-trucks out in the country. He was about eight weeks old when I found him. He was small and scrawny and covered with fleas.

I pulled off onto the shoulder of the road across from him. When the traffic cleared I called to him and he came running to me. He slept on my lap all the way home. From that day on he has been my dog.

A horse trainer found this little girl and two of her siblings out in a field. He picked up all three and took them home. He found homes for the other two and decided to keep her. He stopped by my boarding facility one day and asked if anyone could take her. He was no longer going to be able to keep her. I immediately fell in love with her.

I brought her home and now she is my husband’s dog.
