We have had many posts here on DK about Seat Belt issues. I think I've finally found our answer to this very debated topic. Last week, a very long week, the last straw for me was when Spud’s seat belt broke as I used the brakes. The next moment, Spud was roaming about the van. How safe is that? So, I found this incident to get on my last nerve and to throw a fit about and release all my other troubles. Yes, I was going to go to the top government agency and complain!
On Facebook, I found an agency to complain to about the poor quality of my seat belt. I placed pictures and some comments to the Pet Auto Safety Commission!
Well, DUH ME. Really, did I think there was such an Agency? Give me a break on my stupidity. Not that there should be one, but there really isn’t such a agency.
I placed my frustration on an innocent business on Facebook who sells Pet Auto Safety products. That's when I met Dawn.
It was then that I realized I had posted my complaints to a business trying to encourage us to use Pet Safety Belts. I felt terrible and offered to take my post down. Dawn said no, I am so happy you realize the issue of Pet Safety and could she send me a REAL SEAT BELT to try? In just three days, Spud's Bergan Seat Belt arrived. Free of Charge, Dawn wanted to help us out.
PLEASE~ I AM ASKING ALL MY DK FRIENDS to buckle up the dogs and TO 'LIKE' DAWN'S FACEBOOK PAGE.
ANOTHER PLEA TO USE THE BELTS FOR YOUR DOODLES
About ten years ago, I was driving at a high rate of speed down the interstate when two tires were erratically rolling at a high rate of speed back towards me. Another few feet, I see two dogs running petrified into me also. Head On. I swerve and miss them as traffic behind me began to brake and snake around the pups. Then I see the mangled car smoking just ahead. Sadly, I have no idea what happened to the dogs as I was stuck inside a mangled mess of cars. A month ago, I read a sad plea for any information about a Boxer who had been ejected on that same highway in another auto crash. The dog had been missing a week. The post says, " We have not given up hope, but we know the chances are no longer good"
My husband tells a story of his beagle mix being slammed into the dash as he was hit from behind. The dogs jaw mangled and bloodied.
Today on Facebook, another post asking everyone to share information regarding a missing Sheltie Mix missing after another serious crash. The dog was ejected and missing.
Without posting any photos, please do a simple search ( images ) with the words dogs ejected from cars after accidents.
If you need help, Dawn can help you with what will work for you and your doodles. Please ask her where you can get started. Ask for suggestions. Tell her about your auto, your dog, how much it weighs, and the best product to use. There are several different products.
It is great to find a Good Business. Rarely do I promote anything, but this time, I truly believe in the product and her business!
Dawn, Thank You. Thanks for helping me and Thanks for keeping my Best Friend Safe
Again, Like her on FB for me please. She sent a crazy old lady like me a Free Seat Belt ( Note~ don't try this as you will not be getting a free seat belt. I was not trying to do this either. It just happened. Maybe she felt sorry for me for being stupid about a dog government agency and so frustrated with my situation)
You really can't get better than a business who cares, helps some silly crazy woman like me, and she wants to keep us safe.
