Raise your hand if you've ever watched the movie, Riding in Cars With Boys. Anyone? Anyone? If you haven't watched it then I recommend you rent the movie this very instant so you can understand what I am about to say and it is this....if I were lucky enough to have a movie made about my life it should be called "Riding in Cars With Dogs" because car rides with dogs pretty much sums up my life.
For some reason, I get a lot of pleasure when dogs hop aboard The April Taxi and of course a photography session is always in order and the dogs never tire (no pun intended) of flashing their best smiles for the camera. Take Daisy and her dalmatian mix pal, Shadow, who were wide eyed and bushy tailed to be on their way to the dog park. I think the thrill of a car ride was a close second to a visit to the dog park, if I'm not mistaken.
Every dog has it's own personality and for that reason they all react differently to car rides. Take a look at Rocky, my precious Cairn Terrier friend, who preferred to give a standing ovation to every piece of scenery in his neighborhood.
And then there's Moka, my German Short Haired Pointer friend whose smile was at its all-time widest when I invited her to go for a spin to the nearby park
And then there's my dachshund mix pal, Monkey, who preferred to be in the driver's seat
but ladylike Jesse always let her pet sitter have control of the wheel
And then there was Fenway, a pug who had some serious road-tripping on her mind
And last but not least , there's Miss Sophie who just pays her cab fee and then smiles all the way to her chosen destination. Now there's a dog who knows her good looks can buy happiness!
So, I wonder, dear doggy friends, what do you act like or look like while you ride in the car with your owners/parents? Are you smiling? Sleeping in the back seat? Looking out the window? Leaning forward? I'd love to know what your owner's "Riding In Cars With Dogs" experience looks like. Please tell me that I am not the only one who loves to snap pictures of canines while they ride the gravy train!
