So You Don't Have a Bed in YOUR Car???

I was amazed at the number of comments from puppers who do not have a bed in their car yesterday! I don't know what made me put the bed in the car for Macy... I think I was washing beds after Mabel passed and was taking some to Hank and just left one in the car. But I remember thinking on adoption day that, just because Mabel could figure out her own bench seat, don't expect the next pup to do that.

I sprang Macy from Doggie Jail and walked her and put her in the car. She was asleep before we hit the freeway. She slept all the way home until I started stopping and turning in the neighborhood. That sweet pup sleeping coupled with the fact that she's so dang short made me leave the bed in the car. Frankly, she needs a few extra inches just to see out the window!

I'm amazed at how often she will just go to sleep in the car. Riding, waiting for me at the grocery... she just curls up and nods off!

And yesterday, after I got our schedules mixed up and was desperate to be out of the house (let's just say it involves something dead in my a/c vents!), I decided to kill time on the torch. I needed to make a custom set of beads and I was waiting for people to be up and about. As Macy rarely stays with me when I torch, I wasn't worried until I was done and couldn't find her. She had simply gone to sleep in the car! 

It's not the first time! I found her like this one night last week (very blurry as it was dark!)

I worry about her wanting to be in the car...sometimes she simply will not get out when we come home! I keep thinking she's trying to tell me to take her to her "real" home... but after all those comments, I'm starting to think she just likes the car bed!

we have a bed in the car but it alwayslooks like a ragbag within 5 minutes. I'm sure Macy loves her car bed and she loves the car what brings her to fabulous places :O)Wish Easy would be a little motorhead too :o)

Why wouldn't she enjoy that super comfy car bed. We have a hammock in the back seat for the pups. That way they get the comfort of the seats without making them a mess and they don't fall into the foot wells. This is especially necessary since Millie likes to sit backwards and can easily fall into the hole.

Some dogs absolutely love riding around in the car. It's soothing to them, I think.

Oh Dory is going to want a bed in the car ;-)!

I let Phod have his bed in the car after I was sure he wasn't going to throw up everywhere on our long road trip, and he loved it. I think we will travel with one more often now!

Mom says there are too many carseats in the car to add a bed. Sheesh!!!
