Today, I went out and bought a new car. This was a very difficult thing for me to do. I've had the same car for ten years, and it has given me no trouble. I always said I would drive the car until it fell apart. After this winter, I've decided that having all wheel drive would be a good idea, considering our driveway is very steep, and can be difficult to get up if covered in snow. Plus, the roads to our agility class can be quite treacherous if there is a sudden wind or snow squall.
The deals they have right now are really good, plus there's the tax credit from the stimulus package, so I found a small car with all wheel drive that I liked.
Of course all of my questions about the car were, "is the back seat comfy for the dogs", "can the dogs get in and out easily", "will this be good for my agility stuff?", etc. Hmmm, you can see where my priorities lie. Cruise control, air bags? Who cares.
DOG FRIENDLY CAR
I never thought I would buy a four door car! It just seems so suburban mom to me. Just the words "family car" make me cringe. But I guess, perhaps, I am a suburban "dog mom". I can always have my mid life crisis later.
