0 Riding in Cars with Dogs

If you have dogs, and if your dogs ride in cars with you, then you know these things.


You know that dogs like to help navigate from the console.


And you know that little dogs like to help navigate even when they can't quite reach the console.

You know that nothing smells better than fresh air.




And you know that the sunroof is one of man's best inventions, at least according to man's best friend.


You know that the backseat can hold two dogs quite easily. 


And you know that it can even hold three. 


You know that nothing lulls a baby dog to sleep quite like a long car ride.

And you know that nothing is sweeter than a sleeping baby dog.


As I said, if you have dogs, and if your dogs ride in cars with you, then you know these things.

You know what else you know?

You know how much comfort and love dogs provide. You know how much more easily you breathe when they're curled up next to you. 

And that's why when Tod and I saw on the news tonight that the comfort dogs deployed by the Lutheran Church Charities were bringing some peace to the victims of Monday's bombings in Boston, we couldn't help but smile a little, albeit through teary eyes. Because even though the world is a scary place right now, and even though our hearts are heavy with sadness, it's so nice that our dogs--our best friends who love us unconditionally and who don't judge us when we cry, or when we just sit on the couch and eat too much ice cream (Zelda just hopes she can lick the spoon)--can help us remember that love always wins, that good always overcomes.
