StrayDog 3/14/24

My condolences. I always hate losing my dogs.

I'll take a spot!

Driver name: Suzie Q (my first dog)

I feel for ya and I'm in brother... I lost my best good Buddy last year about that time. He had been getting meds for his arthritis that had masked a cancer condition in his system. I took him to the vet for his not feeling well... they did an x-ray and said they needed to put him down. No warning, no alternatives... nothing. I walked out of there with my buddy in a bag and a broken heart. Took him home and buried him in the pasture. So... fck yeah I am in. I don't have this car but I will get one and send it. Driver: Buddy

  • Gonna be a lot of entry made with misty eyes..... — StrayDog
  • agreed... — Stoopid_Fish_Racing
  • So sorry bro’ he looks awesome! Kodiak went fast too, some kind of neurological issue, brain cancer or the like. Started having bad convulsions & falling. Broke my heart too, always destroys me to lose such a good friend. Man’s best friend indeed!! — G_ForceRacing
  • I feel for ya just sux... and thanks for setting this up to honor them all! — Stoopid_Fish_Racing

I'd like a spot! 

Sorry for your loss man. I lost my chocolate labrador just over a year ago as well. It's not easy losing a good pal. The sand-covered nose brings back good memories. Those dogs sure love the beach

In memory of Nita

I asked Bent Rod about this but haven't inquired with you--would my entry still be valid if I put the chassis of a '32 ford on the base of a Bone Shaker? There's a chassis that I find cool that i've been trying to frankenstein on to a Bone Shaker base to enter it into these races. It would still look like a Bone Shaker for the most part, with the huge exhausts and everything. If not allowed I can just get a new car and start from scratch, no worries. Let me know your thoughts

  • Sorry for your loss she looks chill! Yeah in her memory you can use the ‘32 chassis! — G_ForceRacing

My condolences on the loss of your friend. Dogs have a special way of leaving paw prints on our hearts, and I know yours will be deeply missed.

I will send a car your way in honor of My old dog, Roscoe was his name.

Crazy_Canuck 3/14/24 down as well...never had a dog as a pet...but we know every dog in the neighborhood better than we know the neighbours. Growing up my neighbour had a huge German shepherd mix named "Diesel"...he was an absolute teddy bear...but looked like he could chew through solid steel...that'll be my BobeShakers name

  • So true! Diesel it is! Congrats on your awesome win at GTR!! — G_ForceRacing

For Kodibear!

I'm in. 
Drivername: Mona

I hate loosing our good friends/family members! I can feel 100% with you!

My entry will be driven by Gage.   He is a rescue dog.  Surrendered and on the euthanasia list because he was losing his sight to a degenerative eye disease.   He is only 6 yrs. old and completely blind now but he has mapped "his" yard, knows where the fence and trees are and he "Runs with the Big Dogs" everyday.     FOR KODIBEAR!!!

The noob will give it a shot in honor of my Cody Boy...who crossed the Rainbow Bridge two years ago this coming condolences

  • Another Cody! Sorry for your loss, he looks sweet — G_ForceRacing

Had to post a Pic of Koots with Niko ( His Antaginist ) behind him.

  • The legend himself! I didn’t know Koots was a dog, but i suppose “fuzz face” could have been a clue! Impressive to see him in action on heavy machinery. Quite the skilled little dude! — ConMan_Customs
  • You should see him go after the Deer! And when the Ground Squrrels pop up he's hunting them down and less dog food to buy. — Bent_Rod_Racing
  • Yay Koots! — G_ForceRacing
  • Hey ConMan, Koots Doesn't know hes a dog too! Dang guy is to smart for his own fuzzy Britches — Bent_Rod_Racing
  • Haha! — ConMan_Customs

I'm in. And even though I don't have a dog, here's a picture of my surrogate pet, Lilly... which I nicknamed Poober (that'll be my race name). She's my sister's dog, was my roomie for 3 years, and got me through some tough times. I love this kid more than most humans. :)

  • RIP Kodiebear — FeralPatrick
  • That’s awesome, thanks Patrick! — G_ForceRacing
  • Lol, How could you not Love that Sweet Face! — Bent_Rod_Racing
  • Tell me about it. My sis now lives in Washington and I'm in Minnesota. I miss that fuzzy mug. She'll be 14 next month. I guess I'll be taking a trip soon. :) — FeralPatrick

I'm in. My dog Bear is getting up there in age and I dread what comes. Seeing as how there's quite a few Bear variants running around, I'll name my car Shadow. She was the first dog I had as a kid and I miss her quite a bit still. Sadly, I don't have any pictures of her.

  • Thanks bro’ Shadow is in. I’m sure the photos are still in your mind! — G_ForceRacing
