Our dog, Sunny, lives up to her name. She is happy and bubbly and funny and she is undeniably a part of our family. She sleeps on our bed (she is a terrible pillow and blanket hog), and takes up her own couch cushion. She is a playmate for my kids, a great snuggle companion for my boyfriend and I, and a champion nap buddy. She travels with us all the time as well – sometimes it is short trips, like to the barn to play with her puppy buddies while my daughter rides her horse, and other times, on long hauls. She will be driving with us tonight on our way to a weekend horse show. It’s kind of like having another kid. A much, much hairier kid.
Subaru knows all about traveling with kids, and dogs! While Sunny probably wishes we traveled with a tailgate full of meat, we are more concerned with safely packing the girls and Sunny into the car with all of our luggage! Sunny tends to ride in the back seat with the girls. Sometimes, she will ride in the crate, but this tends to stress her out quite a bit, and gives her an upset stomach, which makes the ride, well, stinky. Subaru knows all about how dogs travel with us.
Subaru definitely gets that dogs are a HUGE part of family life, and that is something I definitely appreciate. If you haven’t had a chance, head over the Facebook and check out the Subaru Facebook App! It has tons of interactive pieces – including a feature where you can make your dog their own driver’s license. I think Sunny will be getting one VERY soon!
