Over the years, my dog, Baldor, has made a few cameo appearances in this very large thread. Back in '09 when I started this, he was a young adult. Anyone whose ever had a dog knows where I'm going with this...
My last dog, another German Shepherd named Grendel, was my first dog. He was huge, anxious, vocal, and emotional. Affectionate, too, sometimes like a big baby. He died at the age of 10, while the race car was having some bodywork done at Vintage Customs, back in '08 or so. I remember there being an issue with the cage not having extensions into the tire arch in the footwells, something the previous shop would have dealt with. I confided in Daron, the shop owner, that my dog just died, and I was too distraught to deal with the car's cage. Him being a dog guy (his username here is Akitaman), said not to worry, he'll take care of it. And he did. I think he dragged the welder from the other shop to his, and had him make the additions.
