They don't seem to get as much air though. Kinda like this basset hound I saw once trying to jump over something.

LOL! It's funny because you're right, the Bassett does looks like an FJ40, sorta awkward in the air but gets it done. Take something like an Aussie Shepherd who is lighter and quicker, they do look more natural...

So you are saying that 40s are like bassetts and minitrucks are more like lithe and agile Shelties?

Maybe not quite as proper as a Sheltie, but definitely thinking more like a sleek and agile, hard workin' little dude. Subtle, eh?
Those Bassetts are funny with their ears, but I really like how the cattle dogs look like they're trying to be Super Dog.

How to get a Cruiser to fly:


Mini = Mighty Mouse.

Mighty Mouse Theme by Philip Scheib & Marshall Barer

Mr. trouble never hangs around,
when he hears this Mighty sound,

Here I come to save the day!
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right,
Mighty Mouse will join the fight!

On the sea or on the land,
He's got the situation well in hand!

We know that when there's danger, we'll never dispair;
Because we know that when there's danger he is there...
On the land on the sea in the air.

We're not worrying at all
We just listen for his call
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way.

When there is a wrong to right,
Mighty Mouse will joint the fight
"Here I come to save the day!"
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Yah. That's what the brontosaurus said to the small mammal.
