Momma wasn't the one to get a gift on Earth Day. Her and Daddy went out on Saturday and came home with this horrible contraption for the Momma Mobile. I flat out refused to go in it but today I decided I had had enough of hanging out at the house so when Momma told me she needed to take some movies back to the library, I asked if I could go with.
I'm not really fond of riding in the car. I don't know why but it makes me kind of nervous. You'd think I'd be used to it after traveling for 15 hours to get here from Texas but I still don't like it. Momma thought having my very own car seat might help calm me down but who was she kidding? This thing is terrible!
Daddy had the harness thingy hooked up the right way but Momma thought hooking it up to the angled part of the seatbelt would give me more freedom. Oh, I got more freedom but I nearly killed myself. Back to square one, Momma!
I told you so, Momma! Next time please leave things alone.
The lack of freedom, despite the safety, made me very mad. Momma didn't take any video of me while I was in the car but if she had you would have heard me crying. It got so bad that I refused to look out the window. Momma felt sorry for me and decided to unhook me from the harness for a few minutes and I went crazy.
I even talked Momma into rolling the window down so that I could get some fresh air. Ahhhh! I stretched my long body so that I could see and smell everything that was happening outside. Momma was afraid that I might try to jump out the window if she lowered it more so I just stuck my cute little nose out.
I would calm down for a minute and then resume my action. It's very hard to sit still when you're a pug.
You can see here what one of the biggest problems is with this contraption - the sides are bendy. I guess they wouldn't be bendy if I was strapped in with my harness and not standing on them but a pug's gotta do what a pug's gotta do. Momma should've bought one with firmer sides.
I give this contraption 2 paws down. It's the right size and the right height but it's too constricting. And the bendy sides are very dangerous, especially when you want to stand on them. I told Momma to take the Snoozer back and get me something better. She remembers that one of my friends has a car seat thingy but she doesn't remember what brand it is. Lot of good that does me.
If you have a car seat thingy please leave me a comment and let me know what brand it is. I hate this thing and am not going to get in it again. In fact, I would go with Momma to the store to return it but I hear they don't allow dogs in their store. What kind of store doesn't allow dogs? Like my hero Howie always asks "Have you ever heard of such hooey?"
