My Human Dog

Our dog, Brinkley, LOVES car rides. I'm sure you know that this is a very common characteristic in most canines. He loves to stick his head out the window and let the wind blow in his face. He would be in heaven if we ever got a convertible.

My brother and sister-in-law were in town this weekend, and my mom came over and we all loaded up in my Accord and headed to the local PetSmart. We had four people and three dogs in the car (talk about crowded), with Brinkley taking up as much room as a person.

Brinkley sat by the window in the backseat, and, of course, stared longingly outside. I looked back at him and could not believe what he was doing. He was using the arm rest. Like a person. Don't believe me? Check this out:


Yes. That is his paw on the arm rest. I think he was maybe trying to press the button to roll down the window. Poodles are highly intelligent, you know. And just to show he's not bashful, here's another shot:



Are you impressed with my dog? I was. I hope that brightens your day a little. Maybe next time I'll roll the window down for him. (-:

  5. I always love seeing dogs in cars that drive by. I think I'll love it even more now that I can pretend that they are all as smart as your dog. :)

  6. HAHA, that's awesome! He looks ver studious! Our pup is half shih-tzu and poodle...definitely has the mind of a poodle!

    Question: I heard that poodles tend to be fussy with eating...our Brody is rather finicky with it...does this happen with your dog!? Thanks!

  8. Super cute! Our dog wants to sit in Steven's lap and help steer. But he's 75 pounds so kind of difficult. Dogs are so funny!

  11. I have to hold Mia while she sticks her head out the window because I'm about 97% sure she would try to jump.
