More on Mirrors/Dogs


Recommended Posts

I can't remember who posted it, but someone (a while back) posted Mack's "o-fficial" guide to bulldog emblem placement on vehicles.  I can't find that old thread!  Maybe whoever posted it will remind me.

But, I was thinking about 1 particular section that said the dogs should face forward if placed on the side of the truck.  So, the dogs on the mirrors should face inward toward each other, so that (when viewed from the side) they would be facing "forward and inward".  If they face outward away from each other, (when viewed from the side) they would be facing "rearward and outward".  We don't want our pet bulldogs backing down the road!  A couple of examples off the web...

Correct...

I had a nos set of mirrors from the 80's and according to the box labeling they should be how the dogs in the ad are. 

I don't doubt it.  I mean, they did release that ad with the mirrors turned that way.  But, if you follow the "dog forward" rule, they are backwards.

I keep hoping that whoever posted the official Dog Rules from that earlier thread will post them again here.

I go be the old story I was told, so it is a really old story now.

A dog is your best friend and being a best friend you never point your ass towards your friend only someone passing by. I'd rather have a dog lick me that have his ass in my face as with the mirrors!

Same with the mudflaps. I have always pointed the faces in and was told that was correct by many people. That is why they made right and left facing bulldogs, Respect the drivers!

I was told by one guy that they should be facing outward to bark at the passers by buy not correct, I like the other way just asses out and poop on them. :loldude:
