Shortly after buying our new car, we learned that Elvis can and will jump from the trunk to the back seat. This wouldn't be *such* a big deal for the next couple of months if it wasn't for the fact that he sheds and slobbers all over the place, and no one can ride in the back of my car without being thoroughly disgusted and/or fur-covered.
We decided that since we'd need a pet barrier eventually anyway, why not get one sooner rather than later? I wasn't sure what Elvis would think of his new spot in the car, but I was worried he'd think he was being put in doggy jail. I decided it would be best to try out the pet barrier for a short drive from our house to the vet's office and back this past weekend.
He seemed a little bit confused by the barrier at first, but once he realized he was stuck back there, he went right back to his usual routine of making ridiculous noises while wagging his tail and licking the windows.
And in case you were wondering, Elvis's annual check-up went wonderfully!
