Miss Petal has a fairy godmother, LittleNeedles, who lives in Nevada ... look what she sent her all the way from America!

This is a Fidorido car seat for dogs. It buckles in to the car, like a child's car seat. The seat belt runs across the cushion, which is underneath the fleecy cover (which is removable and washable).

The pup puts on a close-fitting harness. There are straps at the side of the car seat which are clipped on to metal rings on the side of the doggy harness, so the goggy is tethered securely in place, but can still stand up, sit down, and walk around a little!

Petal has a bad track record with car travel, she hates the regular doggy car harness (which is just looped through a seat belt), carries on and gets tangled up and complains loudly the whole time!

I took her out for her first little ride just now, and she did very well! She complained a little, and got a little caught up in the straps once, but it was a massive improvement over her usual car trip experience!

Apparently it also makes a good dog bed inside, but for the moment I think we'll keep it in the car (back seat in general).

And even better? It has room for TWO little goggies ..  ;)

Thank heavens for goggy fairy godmothers!!!


  1. Oh Miss Petal is the luckiest girl!! What an adorable Goggie Seat!! Now she can really go places!!

  2. Two doggies???? Is that a hint????

  3. awesome!!! Little Needles truly rocks!

  4. Hooray for Littleneedles and hooray for Petal! Some dogs get stuffed into a carrier for their car trips. Miss P. is a pampered pooch!

  5. WOW, I need a friend like that to spoil my Chloe too! Hint, hint - lol! You must have done some really good stuff (or I mean Petal must have done) to get that! Way too cool! And very pet smart, too.

  6. That IS cool!

    Our smallest doggie we ever had was about 26 lbs (not quite 12 kg), but she could get into so much trouble, loose in the car.

    Ajax is four times her weight, but although he takes up more space in the car, he just lies down in the back like a good boy.

  7. Yes, Nettie! We're probably getting a little brother for Miss Petal in October/November!! Very exciting!

  8. Great little pup! So... how does one "write puzzles" Crosswords or something?

    Trying to get readers to my blog. Thanks.
