I nearly took the Camry this weekend because I knew I needed to take Maggie some place and she comes attached to a doggie seat for safety. Then I grew a pair and picked the Mustang.

Maggie's giant foam dog seat fit fine, but in this instance, it probably would've been just as safe if not safer to just strap her to the cinched shoulder belt. In retrospect, she seemed a little close to the front head restraint. With the seat, though, at least she could still see out.

And regardless, Maggie and Mya are safer than all those dogs who get killed or injured when their dumb owners let them ride on their laps in the driver seat.

(And no, Mags wasn't so happy to be back in the car for this photo shoot. I let her play after serving time as blog model).
