    Do any of us ever wonder why humans average life expectancy is now > 80, yet dogs are < 15.

    I think they deserve it to be the other way 'round.

    My dog loves the dog mode here in Portugal .- I think a great update would be the option to change dog mode screen to reflect the country you are in.
    Just a thought I wonder if I change the system language it will reflect that in dog mode

    He's half GSD, half Husky. Yours is absolutely beautiful.

    This is the one we use. The best feature is the 2 zippers on the front part. These allow us to hook it onto the front seat headrests and leave the center hang down, which allows the cool air coming from the vent in the MS center console to help keep the back cool.

    It's a chore to get the hair off after a trip, especially the fine ones that embed into the weave of the material (600 denier). Still exploring solutions for this so any suggestions are very welcome.

    Props to JoeMartin for starting this great thread!

    I saw a coffee mug today that had the following on it:

    "Be the person your dog thinks you are"

    I aspire to be that person..

    I take Ping Pong every where I go now that there is a dog mode. He wears a little seatbelt on the passenger side when I am driving. Love the dog mode.

    For some reason, my Golden prefers riding in my X to my previous Grand Cherokee. He relaxes more and simply curls up the the way back. He loves his Supercharger stops and leaps into the back area in a single bound.

    Think it may be the quiet of the Electric Drive or something, but he sure is peaceful back there.

    Thanks @JoeMartin - we had him since he was 8 weeks old and he’s grown to be this gentle giant with an awesome temperament. All the kids in the neighborhood loves him and he loves playing with them. But one time, some of the kids were horsing around and accidentally bumped into my daughter, he was quick to give them a quick warning bark.

    We've been wanting to get a white GSD and name him Loki, Thor's brother, but I just can't commit to two giant, furball-shedding creatures right now. LOL

    Thanks for starting this thread.

    My little pup loves her elevated car seat. She's about 20 lbs so this booster seat is just the right size for her. She loves the extra visibility out the windows and I feel better knowing that she's strapped in securely. The seat gets strapped in with the seat belt, and her harness gets attached to the seat belt with a short leader line.

    This is Goga, 4yo BRT. Loves riding! To the point when we cannot pronounce the word "car" because he gets so excited, he thrashes everything around. Once in the car, quietly lies on the back seat (which is very helpful considering his size) and stays quiet for hours.

    Yes, they look similar. BRT-s are a bit larger, Goga is 33.5" tall and weighs ~150 lbs
