Dogs In Seatbelts?!?
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…
