    Thats good!

    Do you clip him to the bottom part of the seat belt sash or to the diagonal part?

    On the way to pick up my friend I had her clipped to the bottom part (the straight part) and she managed to get herself in a real tangle!

    So on the way back I clipped her to the diagonal part and she seemed to have more opportunity to sit and stand?

    I have a leash attachment for the harness that clips into where the seat belt would. I love it, I think it cost about $5 from the Warehouse, but I know they have them in supercheap too.

    Ohhh...so it would clip to the harness and then into the actual seat belt clip?

    Can you control the length of the leash attachment?

    Or a custom Newf float!

    Actually I watched part of the Mastiff Nationals in Melbourne a couple of years back and many of the exhibitors had customised horse floats!! I think the ramps make a big difference with great big lummoxes like them...

    Nope, not a trailer or a custom float.

    I do intend when she is fully grown at around 2 to have a cart built for her. Well, for me, really. Lol.

    I have seen something funny Had a tradie arrive at hubby & I's property.. He got a huge heart attack when he went to the trailer! His ACD had hitched a ride

    She was the sookiest dog I've ever met I think, and she was gorgeous. Apparently she had jumped their fence and jumped in as he was pulling out of their driveway. Worst part was she had been in there along highways for nearly an hour!

    The loyalty of some dogs astounds me, so much determination to stay with her dad, it was kind of sweet yet very scary. Missy spent the day with him after he rang his wife (who was tearing her hair out with worry) so she knew that Missy was ok.

    She sounds like a daddys girl. Hope she doesn't have too many adventures like that.

    Same. Whenever we go for a ride with Dora, I sit in the back, holding her firmly. I've given thought to buying a harness, but am a bit broke. Once I get paid on Tuesday I'm gonna buy one.
    But yea, I just hold Dora carefully, making sure she doesnt move too much.
