America's Pet Store

The fine folks at America's Pet Store sent me some of their bestsellers to test out - to find out how a real Dale uses their products. I'm in!

First dad set up the Waterproof Bench Seat Cover in the back of the Bogcedes.

It looks good, compliments the black and tan nicely, and doesn't feel scratchy on the paws or the delicate, wiry fuzz.

I kind of like this actually.

It makes me feel like the entire back seat is mine (which is great, because I've always felt at home in the front seat, but sometimes I am forced to ride in the back...)

And now for the Pet Vehicle Safety Harness. I've never worn one of these that's this nice - mama tried one of these ages ago but it wasn't padded and lets just say that I didn't like it (rather than what actually happened - in my displeasure I destroyed it).

This one is adjustable at 4 points, helpful for a deep-chested male such as myself...

And it's got a short leash that attaches to the seat belt.

Think you're just going to strap me in? HA HA HA

Ok, I'm sitting up straight like a good boy. Looks kind of snazzy, doesn't it?

It's definitely comfy, a HUGE plus for me. And it really does fit nicely...

Ah well, I guess I can't run all around the back seat being strapped down, huh?

At least I can still look out the window...

It's actually not that bad - I do feel pretty snug.

And if I want to jump into the car after getting all wet and muddy, I've got my new waterproof seat cover so dad doesn't yell at muddy paws on the seats. IT'S ALL GOOD

Looks pretty good Bogart. My seatbelt dealie has that lambwool looking padding too. I'm not sure if it is exactly the same. But it works. That one looks like it goes up over your shoulders more. Sheesh, now mom has gotta look it up. See if it is better. Momma wants to know how y'all are becoming tester dogs. We'll be happy to do it for this area of the country for them! hah

Bogart....can you lay down on YOUR back seat with that thingy on? It looks so cool! Mom wants to know where does a hooman get one of those for a Dale??? She said "If Bogart is smiling while wearing it then it must be ok!!" couldn't have frowned???? Now it looks like I will be getting one.....sigh.
Still love ya,

Bogie, we wondered the same as Willow. Can you lay down with the harness on? It looks comfy.

We will have our people let your people know if we are going to be in Portland. They do like to drive up that way for the good food and stores. Have your people let our people know if you ever head down to Eugene or out to the coast. We would be happy to see you at Chez Sadie-n-Boatie, and we always love a good romp on the sand. Stay out of the water, though, and bark like mad if the humans attempt to get their toes wet. Anyway, we shall have to meet sometime, now that we all live so close together.

Ruff ruff,
Sadie& Boatie

Wonderful Bogart!

We could have used a waterproof seat cover like that one when we were on Nantucket!
Your new safety harness looks pretty padded and comfy, Bogie! How do you like it?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I'm a little bit smaller than you (I weigh 7 pounds) so I have my own car seat that I get strapped in to. I think it's a little humiliating but my mom insists it's safer for everybody. Hmpf. I wanted to stop by and thank you for your support during the recent sad time in my family. It was nice of you to stop by and let us know you were thinking about us. We look forward to reading your blog!

You are one excellent spokespup. Maybe they'll use your fuzzface for their promotional advertising.

By the way, my girl thanks you for all of the close up schnoz shots on your video. She assumed all of those smooches were especially for HER. (She's got it bad for ya, man!)

My girl just started using a seatbelt/harness for me in the car, but it's nowhere near as nice as the one you just tested. You almost look like an astronaut strapped into your rocket. Very cool.

Thanks for sharing.

Goob love,
