It's becoming all dogs, all the time, here at this blog! Of course, Emma IS the youngest and newest member of our family, and the one i'm spending the most time with these days. So. I'll try to keep in to a minimum, but i can't promise anything.
Back when we had Graham, i never took him anywhere in the car. He hated cars, he didn't mind being left home alone, and he was a TERRIBLE passenger – he was constantly trying to climb into my lap as i drove. So unless we were going to the vet or somewhere that Graham needed to go with us, he stayed home.
Emma, on the other hand, goes with me as often as i can take her. I don't trust her to stay in the car alone yet, so not to stores or anything, but every morning she brings the kids to school with me. She sits in an empty seat and calmly looks out the window. Today it took us 20 minutes to get out of the parking lot (SO LONG! WHYYYYY?), and by the time we'd made it to the street she had curled up and fallen asleep. She's totally comfortable and happy driving around. She HATES being left alone. It's kind of an easy decision.
(Also, i totally tried to post this last night. I fought with the internet for two hours, finally giving up and going to sleep at midnight. Stupid internet.)
