I wish I had a bright and shiny ribbon from Thunder’s Finished test to post.
Unfortunately I don’t, (more on that in another post). Instead here are pictures of our bright and shiny new dog trailer.
Each door locks and there is a place for a pad lock as well. You can open or close the louvers as needed.
The box in the front holds the battery for the fan, the rest is storage.
The next picture is a closer view of the side. The top part is the breeze-way. Only one door is open in this picture. If both were open you could see right through that compartment. There is metal grating over the top of the dogs so they get air. The metal box to the front is the water tank. The fan is above the water tank and so are some lights. The compartments for the dogs are front to back on the smaller trailers. The door is on the side of each compartment.
Here is a view of the inside of one of the compartments. The nice people at Ainley made them larger than standard to accommodate Thunder’s size. You don’t want them too big, but comfortable. I don’t have a picture of Thunder in the compartment, but he fit quite nicely. The compartments are open to one another to allow air circulation and the dogs can see each other. They are also insulated to help keep the dogs warm/cool.
The trailer started out nice and shiny, but unfortunately we drove most of the way home in the rain. It hasn’t rained for a million years, but it rained yesterday. Let me tell you, Iowa to Michigan is a long drive in the rain. I snapped this picture of the Mississippi River with my phone as we drove over. Would have been pretty on a nice day. (I know we need rain, but…)
At least I was able to get one picture outside when it wasn’t raining.
Thanks to the nice people at Ainley who did a great job customizing this trailer for us.
After I catch up on my blog reading and get my act together, I hope to design a magnetic sticker to put on the trailer for some shameless blog promotion.
