    We had a rat terrier that was the opposite of what you guys are saying about your dogs. Now if you opened the door to the car or pickup, you'd have a hard time beating him getting into the vehicle. He loved to go in those vehicles, but anytime I started the engine on the kubota, he took off for the house; didn't want to be anywhere near that engine running.

    Great combination! Mine don't try to get on it, likely because I've always discouraged proximity when mowing. That said, if I'm using the bucket or backhoe they are very very trusting. When I mow, they like to supervise sometimes all 5 circling the area, other times taking turns. Their favorite spot is is an over watch position under a gardenia bush just outside their inner fenced area. a great sight to see them lined up but if I approach and take out the camera they immediately shift I often tell my wife this is their supervisory position where they watch to make sure I do a good job grooming their play area.

    They also love the golf cart and will follow when checking the fence line. Only one, my middle girl Pele, likes to ride, she claimed a position up on the seat between the wife and I and will not give it up.

    Here's the 5, Pele lying down, guess her turn was over

    I helped a local farmer with cattle roundup this fall who has a chocolate lab named Java that loves to ride on anything that moves. I was driving a mule sidebyside and it was the only 4-wheeler with a wide seat so I was elected to take the dog. The only problem was she took her half out of the middle of the seat and I was forced to hang on to the steering wheel to avoid falling out. I hadn't been on a cattle roundup in about fifty years and it was great fun!

    Petunia rides with me when I bale hay and she loves to ride on the gator. Since I retired we go for a ride everyday on the gator.

    We've taught our 2 dogs to stay away from the tractor when in use. On the flip side, Parker the barn cat has his own agenda (see my avatar).

    We had a small shepherd mix named Teddy when I was a kid on the farm. He made the mistake of chasing a rabbit right across the sickle bar when my brother was moving alfalfa with the 8N. Teddy lost the end of one hind leg and some toes on another. He lived with that for several years but sftill maintained a happy personality. Poor little guy got around okay but his tail would go around in circles when walking due to the imbalance.

    Edit: I shouldn't say that the pup "made the mistake". Probably was our mistake to let him run with the tractor and sickle.

    I've heard many sad stories involving sickle mowers. There is certainly no shortage of danger involved with machinery. That applies to dogs children and even adult operators. I see people with loose dogs in the backs of their pick up trucks. They don't seem to realize it is only a matter of time before that dog flips out on the highway and is flattened by the car behind. Even when you back out of a driveway in your car you can run your dog over or worse a child. Obsessive care is always in order.
