I’m so so sorry! I actually witnessed my first puppy get run over because somoene left the back door open. We had the vestibule area on the back porch and someone had both doors open. It was the most painful thing in the whole world. This is why I’m so so worried about making sure my puppy is safe.

I’m so so sorry hun! virtual hugs your way.

I am so, so sorry for your loss!  I can completely understand your pain.  I lost my “brother” in March of 2007.  I was lucky enough to have him for fourteen years, but it still hurts.  My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

That’s horrible, and I’m so sorry for your loss. I would be an absolute wreck if anything ever happened to my furbaby.

He likes to ride in the car, but I never let the windows down. I’m probably overly paranoid when it comes to my dog…

And those harnesses that stephanie suggested are pretty nice. I know several people who use them.

Aww I am so so sorry ๐Ÿ™ I lost my dog we had growing up a couple of years ago and it was devastating and now I try not to think what it is going to be like when that time comes for my new pup. He loves to ride in the car with me and I’m always a little paranoid about that, but I will definitely be even more careful after reading this. I hope your dad is able to stop feeling guilty about it eventually. Poor guy, he must be an absolute wreck.

So sorry to hear about that.  That is horrible, but hopefully your dad will forgive himself.  I would be such a mess if I lost my pup.  ๐Ÿ™


I do use a Fido Rido when she rides in the car though, so I feel like she’s pretty safe.

I’m so sorry!  I have a toy poodle who is very off-balance all the time because he had a stroke when he was 1.  I have a car seat for him.  People make fun of me for it, but I know he’s relatively safe when he’s straped in!

Oh your poor dad!!!  That is just awful! 

I keep my baby in the back seat on a harness and don’t roll down the window, but thank you for the warning – I’m just so sorry you had to go through this terrible experience

so sorry for yours and their loss!! this is something I really worry about. I only ever roll down my window for him about 1/2 way and then only when we’re going super slow (like through a parking lot or drive through)

I just wanted to express my sincere condolances to your family.  I actually witnessed a small puppy fly out of the window of a car while I was walking.  I ran and stopped cars and luckily he survived.  I am very careful with Rudy and although i do roll down the window I have his harness on and he is secure.
