Child Safe Car Locks, Not just for Kids...

Over the weekend we decided to head over to Costco and take Seuss along for the ride. Mike had recently rented a Ford Flex for his long work commute and since he's really been enjoying it he thought it would be nice to see if Seuss liked it too - been thinking about getting a new car anyway. Up until now we have only had a Bronco which is big and roomy, Seuss loves it. However, there are no back windows that open.

On the car ride back we stopped at Wendys to grab lunch. Seuss had been enjoying his own open window for the first time and at the smell of french fries felt obligated to stick his head out of the window to investigate. What we didn't realize was he had stepped on the window button and had started closing it on himself. He started to panic but was silent until it was tight enough on his throat for him to cough. Up until then we hadn't noticed anything. I had turned to just check on him and saw him choking in the window. We instantly got the window down and he backed up and fell, crying and shaken. Mike of course pulled over and we rushed to check him over. Thankfully, he was fine, shaken and scared but, no harm done. Mike adjusted the window so he couldn't fit his whole head out and set the child safety locks. Lucky for us Seuss loves the car and is a trooper. He has since ridden in the same car with the locks and was fine.

I recommend using those as a safety precaution to anyone who has pets who enjoy a car ride. Seuss was lucky we spotted him in time and hadn't been on the highway because we might not have heard anything.

I wanted to share this because for those of you have pets who love going for a's a good lesson to learn.

Have you ever seen a happier pup?

Chilling on the balcony being the luckiest dog (in his mind) because he can look down on all those other dogs who have to walk on regular ground.

A couple months ago he had a visit from his Nonna. We got a couple pictures. This month he's going to be visited by his grandma (Yup, Seuss has two grandmothers, a mommy, a daddy, two uncles and an aunt-oh and a sister who is a cat...weirdest. pack. ever) But he is happy. All is well in Seuss world.

Something we read

If you can start the day without caffeine;
If you can get going without pep pills;
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles;
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it;
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time;
If you can forgive a friend's lack of consideration;
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of your own, something goes wrong;
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;
If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him;
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend;
If you can face the world without lies and deceit;
If you can conquer tension without medical help;
If you can relax without liquor;
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs;
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed or color, religion or politics;
then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog.

Bad Pup!

This morning Seuss thought it would be a good idea to try to get into everything. Soon as he woke up he went and stuck his head on Mike's cereal bowl, then fell down some stairs because as usual he was going to fast. Does he learn from this? No of course not, this is Seuss people, he just went down the next flight of stairs at an even faster pace.
After coming inside and roaming around for awhile. He waited until Mike was on the phone then started rustling around in the trash trying to pull out who knows what. I heard him and, since I couldn't say anything I popped him lightly on the behind. Of course this didn't phase him he just pranced away to scope around Mike's area once again.
During his time over there I thought it safe to do some work on the computer...Seuss of course thought this a grand opportunity to play his new favorite game of 'Drink water then stand next to Mommy and drip all over her'.
Of course it didn't end there. He went into the bedroom and started clanking random objects around that mike had put on the floor. When I caught him and told him how he was being a bad dog he just wagged his tail, hopped on to 'his' bed and settled in for a nap.
His work was done.

The size of that bone was completely necessary for New Years.
