|Actually I more want to hear from people who DON'T have cars. I was thinking about this today, that it's HARD to own a large dog if you don't have a car. Dogs aren't allowed on mass transit unless they're in a carrier, and that's a little difficult with the over-20-pounders. In another thread, a dogster stated she picked a small breed because she was afraid her vehicle wouldn't last much longer, and needed a dog she could carry on the bus.
If I lived in a city where everything I (and my dog) needed was in walking distance, that could work too, but then what if the dog needs to get to the vet in a hurry?
While I have never owned my own car, I've had easy access to one when I need it- cars belonging to housemates, boyfriend, parents, etc. Right now I have an old junker that is technically my mother's, but I'm the only one who drives it since she has a better car now. Pretty good deal, but it won't last forever.
I remember back when I adopted Bruno in Tucson, I didn't have any car to use at all, and ended up getting a ride on Craigslist to get back to Oregon, but that was a one-time thing, not the usual way I roll.
So if you don't have a vehicle, do you have access to one for emergencies? Do you take your pooch on mass transit? Or just walk them everywhere?
