Chloe and I were driving home to Seattle from Vancouver this past Sunday, and I realized after a few miles that she was panting — although there’s an A/C vent for the right rear passenger seat, and the car was cool, she was still heating up in the sun. I pulled over and installed the sun shade I’d bought just for this purpose, long ago at Target:
When you’re driving around this summer, keep an eye on your dog. Even in a cool car, if she’s in the sun, she may be uncomfortable.
This particular shade attaches with two big suction cups at the top, and two little ones at the bottom. I’m still looking for a sun shade that doesn’t attach with suction cups. These worked fine, but looked unreliable, and Chloe would jump out of her skin if the suction failed.
Did you and your dog travel anywhere together this week? I’d love to see your pictures — please post them on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page, so we can all enjoy them!
