Daisy is my co-pilot

Daisy is my co-pilotOf all my three dogs, Daisy is the one I most consider my co-pilot. She has been almost since the moment I adopted her (once she realized that the car took her to “good” things). I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, how much I love having her as a co-pilot.

There is something about her easy companionship that I treasure. She doesn’t bark at other vehicles or people walking by. She doesn’t hop from seat to seat or cause a disturbance while I am driving. In fact, she barely even moves at all. She mostly just dozes in the back seat and waits for me to tell her it’s time to venture out.

And when that time comes, she is ready to go, with tail wagging in anticipation.

Daisy has accompanied me on my pet sitting and dog walking rounds, and on road trips to visit friends. She has traveled with me on most of my picture-taking adventures and to many of our local parks. She’s been with me at sunrise and sunset and everything in between.

I value her steady companionship on the road. It always makes me smile when I make a quick stop at our local pet store to pick up some dog food and look out the window and see her sitting in the passenger seat, waiting for me to come back.

She is my muse, steadfast companion, and fellow road warrior. There is no better co-pilot.

How about you? Do you have a special dog co-pilot too?

Lap Dog? Not in MY car!

November 2, 2010 3 comments

As a pet sitter and pet owner, I always cringe when I see someone driving with their pet in their lap. Not only is it dangerous for those of us driving on the road with these owners, but it is dangerous for the owners and their pets.

When I first started my business, I would run across the occasional boarding client who insisted on riding in my lap. It always scared me because I happen to know that driving with a pet on my lap is not something I can do.

Now, all my clients are secured in my vehicle to ensure my safety… and theirs.

There is a new study out that backs up the dangers of allowing your pet to ride on your lap. Think “air bag” and you’ve got the gist of it. Here is a summary.

This week I thought I would post a few funny commercials featuring dogs, cars and the wind.
