when we go for a ride, she will keep it on. As soon as we stop, she works it off. There is something about riding in the front seat. She is a big girl and sits almost as tall as I do. People are always doing double takes and laughing. She seems to be oblivious to other cars when she is in the car. When I started letting her ride in the front seat, she decided not to get out of the car unless her car door was opened. My husband told me that was dumb- no dog would do that- until it happened to him. She will sit and pay no attention to Belle getting out of the back. Even when we call her, she acts like she can't hear us. I have to act like I am angry for her to "decide" to get out of another door. She really is too funny!
