pet strollers

Pet Strollers (via the Presurfer)

I like the SUV version
You can push your pet along on rugged wheels and share the sights, sounds and fresh air of any outing. Pet Stroller SUV™ also doubles as a carrier for trips to the vet. It's ideal for transporting older animals with hip and joint ailments. Especially comforting for senior pet owners who wish to also enjoy the great outdoors with their pets too.

Though I wonder if these canine 4WDs would have the track record of the average Toorak Tractor and stay pretty well on-road. Like the school drop, I suspect the vet run might be the main mileage clocked up.

Pet Stroller SUV is a cool alternative to heavy, hot plastic carriers. Your pet can sit in an open mesh environment, or lie beneath the security of the cloth covered privacy parlor to shelter from the elements

I must say the Privacy Parlour does appeal to me as a suitable place to contain Hannibal Lecter the Blue Heeler.

On your next excursion into the wild outdoors, two cats or small dogs can come with you as can a larger dog up to 14 inches at the shoulder

Bad news for the seniors round here who exceed 14 inches at the shoulder and are rather rotund with it. No free ride for them. Anyway I think this is more the natural order of things.

Off-road pet strollers - Jesus. Our kids' double buggy was sold to us as an 'off-road' vehicle. Another two hot days in succession & we're off to Dartmoor for some serious pushing.

I used to see those baby strollers out in force in the wilds of suburbia. They seldom veered off- road despite the proximity of adjacent bushland
(where I'd be walking my dog in off-road sandals). Of course the pavement there could get pretty rough - so the suped up wheels may have been warranted.
Good luck in Dartmoor.

I cant see Flo or Doug giving you much mileage there Boynton, even if you do wear a shawl and a funny hat.

Well sadly I think Doug's haulage days are over, but I'd wear a shawl and an unfunny hat if it meant Flo could start pulling her weight, Scott. ;)

I'd even wear a crows beanie...maybe.

Huh! We have our own traditional, Australian doggie SUV - the vinyl shopping cart. For true authenticity, the dog has to be an Australian Silky, moth-eaten pomeranian or Maltese with runny eyes, and it should sit on top of the shopping (Tapeworms R us!)

Ah yes! The runny-eyed Maltese is perfect.
(They proliferate around here btw- which is bad news. The Blue Heeler thinks any small white dog is a sheep to worry)

The vinyl shopping trolley Wagon is one step above the Old Pram though - which was the vehicle of choice (or neccesity) around Struggletown, as I recall.
