|Recently, this has been my stepfathers response when I ask to take Caddy places.
He says that she is 'too big' and 'gets hair everywhere.'
Yes, Caddy is a large dog, though is completely well behaved in the car. She lies down on the seat, and falls right asleep for any car ride. The both of us can sit in the back seat together, so I don`t understany why just her 'being big' would be an issue if she is well behaved.
And yes, Caddy is a furry dog, but I brush her for 10mins, every day, so she rarely sheds. When we take her places, I always make sure she has a blanket to lie down on since the seats are leather.
My stepfather really isen`t a dog fan at all, and when we adopted Caddy, I made clear that I wanted to take her everywhere possible, and which he agreed.
Only now, hes gone back on his word. I even offer to pay and vaccume out the FEW hairs the might get on the floorboard.
The only other vehicle we have is my mothers truck, which she dosen`t mind Caddy being in at all, but when we go places Caddy would be able to come, its usually in town. And to save gas money, we always take the car.
I`m just worried about Caddy losing some socalization skills with other dogs. We live in the country, and when my stepfather allowed Caddy in the car, we would go to the dog park weakly. But now, dog park trips are a no-go since I can`t use the car.
Granted i`ll be fixing my own car, but that won`t be for another three months.
