In a recent Facebook post by the Merrimack, NH police department, we see a dog riding in the back of a pickup truck. The department reminds the public that this is not ok, unless there are side rails of a specific height, or the dog is tethered. Not only is it illegal, but isn't this common sense? I mean, I would never want to drive my dog around in the back of a pickup truck! She'd be terrified, and I'd be so worried that she'd get hurt!
