Gunnr enjoys going for a ride:


He hops right in the cab when you open the door...







It's hard to tell by the expressions he makes,

but he really does enjoy riding along...







He looks so serious...








He snuggles right next to Brad as they drive along

down the gravel road...







Regardless of the look on his face,

he truly does love to go for a ride!



May Your Bobbin Always Be Full,

LOVED the pictures of your dog!!! The look on his face is so serious, as if he's telling you to stop taking pictures the first look at you and then... "Really? STOP taking pictures of me!!!" I laughed out loud at all of the shots of him.
