None of our Goldens ever wanted to stick their heads out of the car window--until Atticus started about a year ago at the ripe age of 10 1/2. He LOVES it now.

Go figure............ :)

So funny! I did the same thing for Lacey last Monday when I drove her to her Auntie Bev's house for her Thanksgiving "vacation". (I'm travelling to Massachusetts, while Lacey gets to play with a new collie friend, Brady, 2 cats, and go on 4-mile hikes!!)

You know you love your golden(s) when you put them in crates in your vehicle even though they'd rather have their head stuck out the window.

i am deeply sorry for your loss.. i don't think it means i don't love my golden because i do not crate her. our car will not fit a crate, but i do take extra measures to ensure her safety when traveling in the car. in the picture, the window is all the way down, which we only do when traveling at low speeds in low traffic areas (we live in the country so on the back roads to and from town), when we are on the highway, i'll let the window down a bit so she can get some air, but not all the way open. also, i keep destinations in mind, if we are going somewhere with high traffic or someplace that i know she'll get excited about, then i'll leave her leash on the whole time she's in the car and as mentioned in your poll forum, body block the door until she calms down and sits and acknowledges me, instead of what may be outside the car.

THANK YOU! Just a couple things to help.... use a tie down so they cannot jump out. Don't go on really fast highways because you are risking bugs in the eyes etc. Put the heat on your bottom vents so your feet stay warm. And enjoy life!

You end up with your legs scrunched up every night and freeze even though you have a king-sized bed bc you let all four dogs hog the space & blankets.

I can't! It stinks. I'm a bad sleeper anyway, and it is just absurd at this point. I read the book A Three Dog Night, and it made me smile though.

You know you love your dog when you take them out in any weather for a walk. It's an adiction for me. I gotta have my walk.
The dogs LOVE it too and no weather is too bad for them.
The dogs travel in my Subaru Outback in the "Trunk" area. I don't let them stick their head out the window because of flying debree.
I also was driving one time behind my young friend's car (met her at the park) she had the back windows down for her dogs and her young Aussie saw a Tennisball on the dirt road and jumped out the back window. She was fine but it gave me such a scare.

Murphy loooooves to stick his head out the window. He has a seatbelt strap that clips onto his harness and he only gets to put his head out the window if he's hooked up to that, otherwise he just gets to have a look :)
