That's a great video to show the importance of buckling them in. I've done posts on it before, but am going to use that in a post tonight. Thanks Shiva!

except that I'm pretty sure neither helper dog nor simple dog was strapped in. :embar:

Nothing, but nothing, has helped RnR understand dogs more than that cartoon. We are all about the HEY WE ARE NOISE MAKING BUDDIES COME BARK BARK BARK and ok thanks for the alert but akshully everything is fine, and thank you for telling us. Before reading that, RnR completely could not grok that yelling ENOUGH was just like yelling YAY WE ARE SoUND MAKING BUDdIES! And Caboodle? He is all about the "Lookit I made fudz"!

I've asked him (R, not Caboodle) if it would help to come up with something similar about housework, but he claims no. :(

After I posted this video on my blog, several people commented that they would be getting their pups seatbelts! Thanks so much for posting this, Shiva. :)

Yay! It does not cease to amaze me how many people who would *never* drive anywhere without all human passengers restrained think nothing of allowing a dog to ride loose, and in the case of a smaller dog, wandering the vehicle.

I posted the link on my Royal Hounds Greyhound Adoptions email list.... and received only one response, which was "the buckled dog looks like it broke its back, not sure I'd want that."

Oh, good grief. A friend of mine lost a pup (who was the brother of a pup that I had at the time) pretty much the way that the unbuckled dog in that video went - he broke his back when he hit the dashboard. It was heartbreaking. :cry:

Yeah. Seatbelts are dangerous. Bah. :mean:

I did think it was alarming how the belted dog got jolted in back-breaking-looking ways, but the unbelted dog torpedoing right at the windshield/dashboard kind of overshadowed it.

Flower, that was my first Allie post, too. I love the "why I'll never be an adult" one, too. I find myself saying "clean ALL the things?" :uhoh: I showed panthimo yesterday, so now he'll know what I'm talking about. :nice:
