My Fiver has reached his own safe
solution to the smell/risk/car window
He sits in the front seat beside me (with
his seatbelt-harness on) with his nose
firmly planted on the vent, nostrils going
a mile a minute, snorting occasionally,
in deep doggy concentration.
It means vents are open in all weather,
but that's why we bundle up in winter
coats, right? (And wet doggy snot
on the dashboard.)
