Greatest Sight While Driving ......

Tuesday, June 18, 2010.....



Yesterday, driving to the gym, I pass this minivan at a stop sign. I noticed the driver is female and the front seat passenger is an older yellow lab. S/he was sitting perfectly still with a seat belt across the front of its doggie chest.

I've never seen this before and it made me smile.

I have to admit, most dogs I see in cars hang their head out the window and never have the appearance of being a human being to me.

I think in some countries on the Continent its illegal NOT to have your dog strapped in. Huh! I'd like to see one of our black labs behaving so well- even if we ever wrestled them into a seat belt they'd chew it to bits! Which is why our dogs travel in the boot with a grille to keep them in place!

Now that really is cute!

LOL I love that it had the seatbelt on!

Haha I can only imagine! Doggie seatbelts are a really good idea, but I know my dog would think of it as torture. Haha!

hehe I've seen this before once near a Target by me. You look first & see a guy with really long hair wearing sunglasses...then you look again & you realize its a dog.

Ooo I'm going to check out your post of all your information! Thanks for the heads up!!

Up here they sell dog safety belts. Our little dog (long ago) liked to sit on the back window, until one day my Mom slammed on the brakes suddenly and Max ended up in the front seat. He peed and couldn't stop shaking after that. From then on he would only sit on the floor, although he still love going for rides. - G

Awwww that's adorable.
Once I saw a woman pushing a big white cat strapped into a baby stroller. That was less adorable and more very, very weird.

Safety first... Hi, I have missed you!

When I hear yellow lab I think Marley. And I'm pretty sure he never would have stood for a seat belt!

Sunshine Mama said...

That would be interesting to see.

Luna said...

I hate it when I see dogs on the lap of the driver. Really? That is so dangerous!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hmm, I wonder if this qualifies the driver for the carpool lane :-)

Lol, how sweet. Wish our dogs were so well behaved!

Sara said...

Hahaha! I love it! I've thought about getting my dog one of those doggie seatbelts but I have a feeling she'd crew right through the damn thing.

Just the thought of it makes me smile. What a civilized dog.

Everybody needs a seat belt.

A very well trained dog indeed. I have two myself, and car rides consist of the daughter sticking her head out the window and the mother cowering at our feet puking her guts out...

BTW I was referred to your blog by Deckside Thoughts :-)
