2012 Fiat 500 Sport: No Room for Cone of Shame

October 17, 2011

Had to take my dog Mya to the vet this weekend to get the staples in her tail removed. For weeks she had to sport that cone of shame all dogs love. But this past Saturday was the big day she was going to be able to shed that ignominious garb. But since I had the 2012 Fiat 500 Sport, I couldn't get her in the backseat without first removing the cone. Not so much an issue since her tail was already healed up so the chances of her going after it were probably nil. But it's just a good thing I had something with easier entry to the back than the Fiat when we first got her tail stitched up.

In any case, check her out in the backseat. Within petting (and doggy breath smelling) distance. Only thing was that the only way to get her air back there quickly is to roll down our windows since the air coming through the vents on the dash weren't cutting it.
