A Fur-raising Experience

A note from Addie: Ahhh yes. Sunday morning. I get to ride in the blazer for the donut run. Maybe I'll get a donut hole. I love those! I also LOVE to stick my head out the window during the car ride! I'm wearing my seat belt so what trouble could I possibly get in. Let me put my feet up here next to the window so I can take a better look. Wait a minute. Something isn't right. Wait. MY HEAD! OUCH!

That's right. Addie closed the window on her own head! She only gave herself about a 2 second pinch before I was able to release it. The blazer doesn't have child proof windows. :( In light of this unfortunate event, riding in the car with her head sticking out is not going to happen. Not only do I have to worry about her closing the window on her head, but also something could fly into her eyes, ears, nose, and mouth!

After it happened, I checked her out to see if there was any damage done. I didn't see anything, but she did have a tiny cough. I took her directly to the Animal Emergency room to make sure she was OK. The very nice Vet said that she was perfectly fine. She said her head may hurt from the pinch, but that she was fine.

Now I bet you are asking yourself, did Addie learn her lesson? After it happened, I put the window all the way down. Addie shook her head and coughed and then stuck her head right back out the window to look around. I then moved her away from the window and closed the window entirely.

That's scary with the window. Mostly my mom has forgotten to put on the lock and the windows went DOWN all the way at 70 mph because somebody stepped on the button.

Thank you for your good wishes for my mom. She is home resting now with us and catching up on blogs.

love & wags,

Tell your Mom that you need a pair of Doggles. When I get to ride in my Momma's car with the top down, I wear a pair with flames on the sides.

Oh my... Addie, you gotta be careful next time! Just glad to know your head was not hurt & I'm glad nothing worse happened. That would have been scawier right?! I like to put my head out the window too but my hoomans only allow me to when we're not on a busy road. The back windows are the winding type so no way I can close it on my own. Hey, you know we doggies. We never really do learn our lesson do we? We always do it again almost immediately. Hehe!
