Nice! I upgraded two of mine already... Gotta get to the other ones.

At around ~$5/each they're well worth it IMO.

Awesome shot. :)

Beautiful scenery and beautiful dogs. :)

Inside the headliner clips or outside on top?

I tether them to the inside cargo clips all the time, the ones on top. Sometimes I travel with up to 7 dogs in the X so I don't have room to crate them.

I have an Australian Shepard and I shaved him down to his bare skin yesterday. Not all the way down. Man does he feel better. He has a water trough that I keep filled for him. He's in it at least twenty times a day to keep cool. Now he uses it to drink much less to play in.

San Antonio, TX----101 degrees with a heat index of 110 at times.

101 degrees is hot for any breed (and human) -- I'd be happy if I never saw anything over 75 degrees up here in the hills for the rest of my life.

The Northern Breeds have a dual coat. Their down undercoat acts as insulated long underwear during the winter. 20 below 0 does not faze them. The undercoatt starts coming out when things warm up. Even in Alaska it averages close to 70 degrees during July and August but today it is supposed to be about 90 degrees so most of mine are in air conditioning. There are a few that prefer to be outside in shady areas. I have 4 kennels and the dogs in a/c can go outside through a dog door into the large 60 x 40 kennel.

Did you know Austrailian Shepards are actually an American breed created in the U.S? They were originally a mix of different collies and shepards including Austrailian dogs.

Yup! A lot of people thought they were originated out of Australia.
Smart dogs.

Interesting... My friend's a German Shepard guy. He's got two white ones. I like yours Scott, they look like they have a little Husky in 'em. Simply gorgeous.

Hmmm, wonder if Nissan thought of that as one of "a million uses and counting". :-D


Awesome looking dogs by the way.

Perhaps there are a million and one uses....but I guess Nissan covered that by counting

Thanks -- they are a collection of strays, abuse cases, and castaways that everybody else gave up on but they are good team -- you can't beat fur wheel drive/four paws on the floor....
