BIG DAY FOR A SMALL DOG

One of my dogs always gets carsick-usually between the console and the passenger seat. Last week she leaned way over and hit the coin holder. Big time. I only felt slightly guilty as I threw away about a dollar in change. Totally worth it.

My car is stocked with a big towel, paper towels, plastic bags and wash-ups. Why bother? Well, a dog has to be portable. And she is fine once we get to our destination, much better than the other one (who is an excellent traveler but not so great with people).

Ironically, I have a fancy double car seat (for dogs!) that takes up most of my back seat. So they can look out the window. Which is a really, really bad idea for a carsick dog. Trust me on this.

So this morning, as Little-Bit and I were leaving for a Starbucks run, my eye happened upon a cardboard box. Hmm, I thought, instead of holding cans this box could hold…whatever happens in the car.

I put the box in the passenger seat, the towel in the box and the dog on the towel and buckled her in. I drove slowly and went out of my way to avoid speed bumps and potholes. She settled down and propped her head on the edge of the box.

Starbucks. Bank. Dry cleaners. No excitement although she looked a little queasy.

For the first time EVER we made it all the way home without any “unpleasantness”.

A big red letter day for a little white dog!

YOU CAN HAVE A LIFE-

or you can have a white dog.

If your white dog gets skunked, you can have a pink dog.

If you grow winter grass, you can have a white dog with green booties.

You can clean their eyes.

You can wipe their faces. (Some people wipe the other end.)  😦

Groomers will name their yachts after you.

Yes, you are always busy if you have a white dog. 🙂

My personal definition of insanity?

a black and white dog!

ADDENDUM AGAIN!– And when they get wet, you can have Rasta dogs!

UPDATE- 5/9/09

Or you can have a red dog. This is something I hope you never have to see.

Little-Bit hurt her front paws today. There was blood everywhere- walls, floor, doors, around her mouth (from licking her paws) and on Bebe who had tried to comfort her. I really thought I was going to be sick.

We cleaned her up and called the vet. D.D. cleaned and disinfected the house. Little-Bit should be fine. It was a lot worse than it looked.

But we will be making some changes.

Happy Valentine’s Weekend!

Don’t take candy from strangers.

Even if you are all grown up and think you know better!
