Dog Blog

The Dog Blog is a community of ordinary dog lovers who have come together to discuss our extraordinary dogs. Each Monday, a new topic is introduced. If you've got an opinion, share it. If not, look for the current "anything goes" topic and introduce a discussion of your own. On Fridays, weigh in about your training questions and successes.
Your host: Mike Lewis is a little-dog nerd and the proud owner of Eddie and Jillian, a pair of Yorkies who think they're huskies, and Lucy, a sweet Chessie. R.I.P., Rusty. Contact

What's the best car for a multiple-dog owner?

Do you have a vehicle that perfectly suits the size and number of dogs you have? Spill it! I'm in the market.

My 2000 VW beetle has gone the way of the dodo. I can't say that I blame it. I didn't treat it very well.

Why do you like the car you have, and where do the dogs sit?

Personally, I like smaller cars that get better mileage. The Beetle was perfect for me and two Yorkies. But I also own a 92-pound Chessie, and she was not a big fan of the VW.

Ideally, I'd find a vehicle large enough to hold a large crate for the Chessie. But it should have room to hold a doublewide carseat for the Yorkies. In a perfect world, I'd still have enough space left over for at least one passenger.

Any suggestions?
