You may remember, earlier this year, me talking about how Gibson has "Car Shakes". He was somewhat traumatized by ice hitting the windows of my car on a road trip to my parents' house and hasn't been the same since. Before the incident, he used to run and try to jump into the car with me. Now, as soon as he sees me packing up his food and leash, he'll curl up and hide. I somewhat solved the situation by buying him this car seat:
It worked ok. It prevented him from climbing into my lap while driving, and he'd stay still, but he still looked all googly eyed and would whine the whole time. Another problem with it is that it only works well in the front seat. If my husband came along, we couldn't use it, which is a problem when you take hour + long road trips. So, I went back to basics with this!
Yes, Gibson's baby crate was the answer all along! I put him in the back seat, and he just goes in his crate and lays down and does not make a PEEP the whole time (He likes to kick the bedding out to seal himself in even more)! I actually have to look back there from time to time to make sure that we didn't forget him! :) It has made driving so much easier, and makes me feel stupid that I did not think of this earlier. Der! :)
In other news, Gibson and I are Barking for Life again next weekend! We participated in this last year and had a ton of fun :) Bark for Life is basically the dog version of Relay for Life, only it is on a MUCH smaller scale. It is a wonderful and fun way to raise money for cancer research. I have already met my $100 goal, but hope to double that by next weekend!
