This is a brilliant idea. Three cheers for whoever thought up this section. And thanks Grant for making it a reality. Now if there's a 'light' disagreement somewhere, people can be sent INTO the pub. ;-)

The dog will have to be one who's travelled all over the globe. I'm lousy at names. No suggestions...

Cat in proper BMW colors

This cat is cool. But she is a working cat keeping the montana mice out of our house here at ryder repair. The name is Tesla for her electric personality.

Always the same name

I have had many dogs and it makes no difference what I name them they always wind up being called cumeer. (come here)

Sorry folks, I'm voting for a pub "dog". That cat is just all wrong.

These two would be great choices. They may not ride motorcycles, but they were born in Africa, and are currently bouncing around South America in a van with HU member "Lorraine", so they have the world traveller part down.

That's Dog on the left, she may want wine instead of Guiness, and Bruiser on the right, he'll work the door and keep the riff raff out. They are seen here chilling on the beach in Costa Rica.
