Safety as a Doggie on the Road

I don’t know how many of you know how often I am on the road.

Since I go to work my Mama every single day, and we sometimes go to Nashville, TN on the weekends (a 320-mile road trip), I am a doggie on the go. So when you say, “Who is that doggie in the window?” You should know it’s me! Gracie Lu the Shih Tzu staring out the car window!

I stay safe on the road, though. I have a doggie car seat that I’m always in. It lets me look out the window at eye-level without getting on my tippy-toes. I’ve gotten so used to my car seat that when Mama takes it out and then forgets to put it back in, I whine and whine and cry and cry. I just don’t know what to do with myself. I just love my car seat. I used to sit in the middle console but Mama decided that was too dangerous… So we got a car seat.

Now if I were driving a car, I would like to meet this very handsome Subaru salesman – Grant Weber, the official Subaru Canine Sales Associate. Watch him in action in this really fun – doggie themed commercial – http://bit.ly/WW7C2Y. I especially love the part with the doggie driving the dirty mailman car.

Mr. Weber is the star of this really cool Subaru Dog Tested Facebook app that lets you do all kinds of fun stuff, including create a doggie license! Here is my dog-approved license!


It’s a really neat app, and lots of fun to play around with! How do you like my license? Don’t I appear all official now? So if the doggie police pull me over in my Subaru, I won’t get in troubles!

Subaru is also hosting a REALLY cool Rafflecopter contest that you can enter to win money! First place winner gets a $350 Visa Gift Card and the Second Place winner can get a $150 Visa Gift Card! How cool is that!

You have to like the Subaru Facebook Page to enter, and you have four other chances to enter to win. You just have to either tweet about the giveaway, use their online Facebook app, watch a subarea commercial, or share a Subaru commercial… or any combination of each!

Good luck pals!

    We are always buckled in too and for that once in a great while time when we are just driving a block or two and we are not in our seat belts, we are totally weirded out! Ride safe!

    Hi Gracie, nice to meet you! I guess your master is taking care of you so great that she loved to take you on travel. As long as she got your back, tuck and tight, you’ll be safe. Just don’t move too much while she’s driving it might cause her distraction and it’s not a good thing. Keep safe and enjoy travelling! Keep us posted with your cool photos, its cute!

    Good to hear you’re staying safe, and that you can still see out the window and watch the world go by, have you ever tried a doggie seat belt?
