In the Beemer

In Virginia, the pups were treated to real dog luxury:  the run of several grassy acres to themselves; lounging all day around a large pool, free to take a dip whenever they were hot;  their choice of soft, cool sleeping spots; all sorts of new doggie treats; and mingling with a pack of new dogs including a black lab, two chihuahuas, a chocloate lab, a westie, and several cats.

On top of all of that, we decided that we had to go on a little countryside ride with them in the BMW convertible that Kyle and his Dad fixed up while we were there.  It’s was a twenty minute trip through the Shenandoah with a stop in the middle for homemade ice cream.

I’ll say this: it was a bit nerve-wracking having the pups in the converible.  It was impossible not to think that one of them was going to just flip out at any moment.  We kept them on their leashes and held onto the leashes at all times, so the risk wasn’t too high.  But, it was hard to sit back and enjoy the feel of the rushing wind, because I kept looking back every 2 seconds to ensure they were still there.

Of course dogs love to have wind blowing back their ears, so I have no doubt they loved the full effect of riding with the top down.  But I think it’ll be a more enjoyable ride for us when they are older, more experienced, and a bit smarter.
