The dogs and their car
There are cargo tie-down rings that I will use to anchor the crates with bungees in the future. In the photo above they're not anchored--I was just taking the dogs to a nearby park, but I realized after I set out that if I had to slam on the brakes both crates would slide forward with no gear in the way to stop them.
I could probably free up some more space by putting both dogs in one crate--they would both fit in Lucy's wire crate, or I could use the bigger one that I used for Gomey. Lucy has shared a crate with a friend's dog before, but in general I think she prefers solitude. Perhaps when Pinky gets older and more settled it will work, but right now I think she would pester Lucy too much. I'm still considering other options for space arrangement, like using a removable platform for the crates or getting some 3-door crates and moving them forward.
So far, I'm loving the new dogmobile!
