Sometimes I watch commercials in utter wonder that someone actually got paid to come up with the idea. Even more so that someone said “Yes!” to it. But every so often one comes along that just feels like pure genius.
This commercial made its debut during the 2011 Super Bowl, so it’s well over a year old. But I have to say it’s one of my all time favorites and hasn’t lost its charm.

The smell of chemicals can do more than just give you a headache, it can cause damage to your body that you may not even be aware of.

I am pretty sure that I’ve never considered the dog-friendliness of a vehicle before buying it. The fact is that I’ve never really had to.
But with the somewhat recent addition of Winchester to our family, the next vehicle purchase we make will definitely take this into account.
We happened to fall in love with a little guy (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to be exact). He’s small and easy to transport, and thankfully we have a large enough back seat to accommodate his carrier. But for many larger dogs, it would have been a real dilemma.
