And I am beyond thankful that Wookie is alright. At his size,
with as hard as we were hit, if he had not been safe in his carseat, goodness knows how he would have survived. He didn't
even get a bruise from his soft leather harness. Sara and I were talking about this point today, how THANKFUL we are, we didn't
have to "scrape" him off the dash. I KNOW, UNTHINKABLE! But we do see so many people driving
around with their small doggies in their laps and now I really fear for them all. I had even posted before about that man
I saw several times with his Maltese laying on a towel hanging out the window over the sideview mirror on his corvette. THAT
made me nuts... now I swear if I ever see him again I am gonna chase him down and let him know how unsafe that is.
When the EMTs were trying to "help" me feel better they told me how impressed they were about Wookie's carseat,
and shared with me some of the accidents they have seen where pets didn't do so well.... it really was not helpful at
the time, now I see, I may have a new job.... making pet safety during travels an awareness project.
you all for caring, and your prayers,
What type of Harness did you have
http://www.chokefree.com/ is the one that Wookie was wearing that night and he wears this one most often in the car. It's wonderfully soft leather.
A pet owner spent many hours trying to find the perfect harness and says she did find the
perfect harness - ChokeFree. The following excerpt is from spoiled maltese.com
I think I must be the Queen of harness buying. I've spent many hours trying to find the perfect harness.
I've also spent alot of money on harnesses that now sit in the drawer never to be used again for various reasons.
I DID find the perfect harness after all this and I wouldn't EVER be without them at this point. They are called "ChokeFree
Collars". Made by a husband and wife team. The husband (an aeronautical engineer) "invented" them with an idea
from his wife. I worried at first that the velco wouldn't hold on Spring who can be a puller when she spies a squirrel
down the street. I can promise you that that fear was bogus. The velcro is VERY firm and you REALLY have to pull to get it
I've got a number of colors.
