There are a lot of great dog pictures from time to time so I would like to get all the pictures in one place on this thread plus new ones. I saw a couple of good ones today. Could you please post model T dogs, with names and some detail, riding with a dog tips and stories. I will start with a picture from down under that was posted here a couple of monthws ago. It might take a couple of attempts.
That didn't work
Off to a bad start here. You know the one I mean The dog with the goggles and the guy in the front seat. Sorry about that!
Keep trying, Michael, it's a great idea. I'd love to see the photos.
Do not put a space as I have done after image.
For picture name use anything.
Michael, in other words, this is the syntax:
Be sure you use a backslash \ and not a forward slash /
Thanks Bob, G.b. and Dick, It worked. I'm loosing my marbles.
Man's best friends...the dog and the Ford...
Terrific Dan, thanks
I love the dog with the Ford blanket. Is that a 1912 Touring? Looks like a one piece firewall, so it can't be 19111.
Joker and her people playing on Clarence's roadster.
That's Bud in Michael's post.
“Bud” was the first dog to take a cross-country drive in 1903 with his owner Horatio Nelson Jackson and a bicycle mechanic named Sewall Crocker. “Bud soon became an enthusiast for motoring," Jackson bragged, especially after his masters put a pair of their goggles on him to keep the stinging, alkali dust out of his eyes.
I believe Bud was given to them in Oregon to fend off predators on their way east. IIRC, "The First Road Trip" was the name of the one hour special that was shown on tv a couple of years ago.
Other famous American Staffordshire Terriers:
Sergeant Stubby died on March 16, 1926, as a hero. Sergeant Stubby is the most decorated dog in military history, and the ONLY dog to have been promoted during battle. He fought for 18 months in the trenches for France during WW1 for 17 battles. Stubby warned his fellow soldiers of gas attacks, located wounded soldiers in No Man's Land, and listened for oncoming artillery rounds. He was also responsible for the capture of a German spy at Argonne. After his time in the war, Stubby met Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, and Warren G. Harding. He was, also, made a life member of the American Legion, the Red Cross, and the YMCA.
Jack Brutus was another famous military dog. He was the the official mascot of Company K, First Connecticut Volunteer Infantry.
Poster image for the U.S. during the 1900s. This breed was the image people saw on various war posters, representing the country's strength and dignity.
Here's Madigan, AKA Madi. She loves to go riding in the T.
Thanks Rick for the background, and Tom for Madi.
Here is one of a "Hot Dog"
I'll try again.
You can do it Mike.
What Boiled sausage at Clear Lake
Mike, They usually cook better with the lid on. Only kidding. I love most animals. Especially with some good BBQ sauce.
Cute photo, Erich
Remember, mustard and onions only, for a traditional Chicago Dog ?
The statue of Bud at the Smithsonian is all out of proportion. They have his body much too small.
Here we all are on this September's Tour:
The "Bud" statue looks more like Victor's "Nipper" with a bigger head grafted onto it.
PS I like the picture of Steve Jelf and his black dog in the touring.
Zeke likes to ride in the T and bark at all the neighbor dogs when they run out to chase us. When we go to town in the summer I always try to park in the shade of a big tree.
The RCA Dog Nipper Model T
The RCA Nipper Dog Car
OK we will try to load the car this time.
The RCA Car Nipper
One more try with more pictures
Wow Floyd, what a collection.
How much is that doggie in the window arf, arf!
Roland,It's great to see a post from you!! Bud.
Michael & Kenneth and others.
The reason for RCA and the Nipper I worked for RCA 23 years and 6 mo. I started my collection when I started. Lets get to the Model T as this is a Model T site. I found a picture of a RCA Hack in the early days and had a friend of mine to build this one.
One more picture. The tail and front side lights.
This is all. The pictures all made this year except one made in 2005. I just finish re restoring in August this year. I will post 3 more pictures and this is all. The crank in the back from a Chevy. TK. spare tire holder. The other is a heater that works.
Wonderful work Floyd & a nifty heater. Thanks for posting.
Cats are people too. (or so I am told)
I imagine putting the dogs under the T helps keep the floor cleaner but doesn't it make washing the the dogs a big chore?
Used motor oil is good for the mange!
Capone in his harness.. He has spent over 1500 miles back there this summer alone.
