Driving With Pets

Photobucket
After a post from Pat over at Critter Alley about a doggie riding in the back of the pick-up truck unsafely made me think about doggie safety while driving.
The Pet Travel Center.com is a great resource for pet owners looking to travel with your critters.
(My mom person wants me to say that we just found this site on our own, we’re not advertising anything, whatever!)
An air bag could easily kill a pet so please make sure your furiend is safe when you travel or even run errands!

Last but not least if you use any decorative fencing in your yard, make sure there are no points on the top that your pets could impale themselves on and make sure if there are holes in the fencing that it’s not something that you pets could get stuck in.

Everybody have a happy, healthy, muddy spring season!
