[QUOTE=ChessieMom;1185674]People can be really annoying sometimes, but I think alot of them have no idea how nice those dog boxes are. They're imagining a steel metal hotbox like you'd find in a pow camp for torturing prisoners, not insulation, beds, fans and traveling in style
Amazing the difference in mentality of people, I have four kennels in the back of my truck with the Mud River Kennel covers on them. I constantly get people telling me that I spoil my dogs. While I wouldn't leave my dogs overnight in the kennels at anything below probably about 20F many people here in Alaska will line the kennels with straw and with the cover, dogs stay in them overnight with out any problems. While we don't get many days of hot weather, most people I know will have door mounted fans for circulation. Again many folks think the dogs are just spoiled because of the fans. As far as the chassis mounted dog boxes go, most are better equipped than the hotels the owner is staying in. Last hotel I stayed in didn't even have a coffee pot in the room for crying out loud. You can bet when I buy my next truck and have a chassis mount box installed it will be all inclusive with coffee pot. People just need to worry about there own lives because they usually have more faults than they can count. In an effort to make themselves feel better they look for other people to complain about. Ted I think you handled the situation far better than I would have. I would have probably had a colorful exchange with the woman, once I was done proving to the policeman the dogs weren't in harms way.
