Oh, I admit it... If you're one of those people that puts your dog in a purse or a sweater, I probably make fun of you. Of course, I'm laughing with you, not at you. Oh... you aren't laughing?? My bad. Now, I LOVE dogs, always have. But, I just think that dogs should be treated like dogs and not better than children in some parts of the country. (Sad, but true.)

So, when I heard of people seat-belting their dogs while traveling, I threw out a "Geez people... it's a dog!"

Well, after a recent trip with Clyde (my precious toddler puppy), I realized why a doggie seat belt is nothing to turn my nose up at.

While traveling to my Mom's this past week, Clyde and I were just rolling down the Western KY Parkway when we hit construction. Like, literally, we almost hit a barrel. (And, before you ask, yes, I was paying attention... just kinda came out of no where!) So, while swerving from the right lane to the left, poor little Clyde just about slammed into the dashboard. (Back-off PETA, she's fine.) I'll be honest thou, the look she gave me when she regained her composure and regrouped was pretty sad.

So, I ask you... doggie seat-belts?!? Total yea or total cray-cray?!?

Hey! I know who we should ask...

Cesar Millan! You know, the original host of National Geographic's Dog Whisperer series! He'll be in Evansville at The Centre November 23rd...I'm sure he'll know!
