I've always wondered what would happen if I got pulled over with my doge in the car and the cop decided to arrest me for some reason. Or if I got in an accident and the doge was OK but I wasn't and needed to go to the hospital. If you're not allowed to call someone to come get the doge or are unconscious and the cops or medics don't call animal control to grab the doge then it would run into traffic and get hit.
I guess it's safer not to take your doge on car rides with you. But it's so damn fun... And he loves car rides, as long as I don't drive too hard.
