The stomping ground of Ramsay the Dachshund!

Sunday, December 12, 2010


NewMama and I do a fair amount of driving on the weekends, and Ramsay normally hangs out in his crate - a little unsettled initially, but nothing that can't be remedied by tossing him a treat to keep him calm.  From then on, he's content and dozes the ride away.  Last weekend we took the opportunity to try a car carrier that we had bought even before Ramsay came home.  It's basically a faux-felt-lined nylon basket over a metal frame with straps that wrap around the seat and headrest, as well as a strap/clip that attaches to his collar to keep him IN the basket.  As with most new things dogbert was a little iffy about it at first, but a treat or two later he was enjoying the view from the backseat and napping when things got a little too boring for him.  We're impressed that he stayed in it and didn't try to climb out.  Hopefully he'll continue to behave with it.
