She was such a great pal! Always a happy dog, full of energy, ready to play anytime. As a young dog she started standing in our lap facing us putting her head on our head. We called it her "Yorkie mind meld". We miss her dearly! She really was our "spoiled only child"! Forgot to say, the bottom picture, one day after torn ACL surgery. She just had to be with me while I was working on something in the old motorhome. I put her up on the bed so she could be close & see me. You can see the shaved leg in the picture.


So sad! Our little Max got jumped by a pit bull mix recently on a walk. Had his head in his mouth. I whacked him VERY hard on the head with the hard plastic leash handle and he let go. Could have been as sad as your situation. After we lost our 17 y.o. Bichon we were sure we would not get another dog. But Max is a rescue and we could t resist. Hes even sweeter (as if that could be possible!) than the last one. Its hard to lose one like you did.Click image for larger version

new to Thor. I think putting a cover over the interior stairs might be an excellent idea. We have 2 German Shepherd Dogs who have traveled with us in our Forest River travel trailer before our switch to the Axis.

Thanks Pete'sMH & JJMON! I hope posting our story of loss will help owners be more aware of what these types of dogs are capable of.

We took our Axis out to dog training today. Naughty dogs. Looks like they want to hijack the beast for a joy ride.

I cut a piece of 22" X 34 1/2"out of 5/8" plywood, painted with some black textured spray paint and then, once we were buttoned down and ready to drive put it over the step well and then placed the dog bed there. Later, once we were ready to call it a night, set it up again and the old lab had her bed over the steps and out of the walk way.

It stores behind the couch when not in use.

Doc
Great use of that dead space.

Jeff
