Happy Dogs on Thursday and little friday! Sis has given a quick, happy status check on their blog, and before I launch into my post, there are two other doggy bloggies you have to see today. Firstly, our pal Rudy and his mama kindly honored my request and honestly, you’ve never seen such cuteness.
Next, you have to check out this post today. I am so taken with the potential for a similar local fundraiser that I’ve already emailed a friend… What do you think? Have you seen anything like it in your area?
Now, about the title of this post… Today, the fur girls go their first ride in my new ride. We’ve had it for three weeks now, and the light interior gave us the motivation to explore new doggy travel accessories.
We’d long considered a hammock-style cover for the back seat. The Knight found this model on eBay, so I’m afraid I don’t have much information, but I like some of the unique design features.
(Dear Flickr: You have mess up my blogging zen. This paragraph exists SOLELY because you changed your format and I can no longer drop photos where I want them. I know I’m not just being a techno-novice, because several of my bloggy pals are singing similar songs. Hope this allows the following photo and paragraph to appear kinda’ as I want them to, but if not, at least my readers will know why… )
Each end zips on each corner, and that webbing loops over the grab handle or whatever you might call it above the back seat door. It does make loading take longer, and while Sis just looked things over and leaped in, Gretch can’t make the big jump and can’t make her previous “loading technique” of jumping into the floor board, then into the back seat, work now. She is NOT amused.
At the Knight’s suggestion, I grabbed the large, long crate pad we used in my previous car and dropped it in. The fabric is slick inside, to repel stains, so he thought they’d appreciate something softer that would prevent sliding. They seem happy enough, which translates to Sis settled down right away and Gretchen survived the trip and didn’t try to figure out how to escape.
The jury’s still out, but so far, so good.
Thankful Thursday? I’m thankful we got some much-needed rain. How ’bout you?
