Dogs are more valuable than children, according to state law
The Trentonian ^ | 06/03/12

Posted on 06/04/2012 1:43:03 PM PDT by Daffynition

If I took my dog, and placed him unrestrained in the backseat of my car, this is what would happen: He’d stand at the window and whimper until I opened it. I’d open it a crack or all the way, he wouldn’t care. He’d stick his nose out or his head out, depending on how much window I gave him. I could drive from here to California and that would be that.

Is this safe for the dog? Well, probably not the safest thing. Having him securely fastened would be the safest thing. Also the best thing for me too, as it would automatically dismiss the notion he might try and jump into the front seat. The state of New Jersey agrees with me on the “not the safest thing” front and under a 1996 state law against animal cruelty, I could be in for some hefty fines if ol’ Sparky is unrestrained. Minimum of $250, up to $1,000, and the possibility of being charged with a disorderly persons offense, which would just jack up the cost even more. The law, as written, states someone cannot “carry a living animal or creature in or upon a vehicle or otherwise, in a cruel or inhumane manner.”

Instead of giving the dog valium to calm him down...*I* take it! :)

Same ride... I've kept my seat secured as best I can. No change for the future, regardless of who wins.

Don't drop the soap.

I use to keep valium on hand when I had an epileptic snoodle. Some times I couldn’t find those little yellow pills and had to visit my father. The doctor keep giving him valium to go with his heart medication...he had jars of valium, didn’t like how it made him feel.. I sure do miss him, he passed in 88 at the age of 87 (or 86 I forgot which). Your lab is beautiful. My lab use to look that good but she is now deaf and blind and weak back end that sometimes causes her to fall, but I told her last year,,,, If you keep wagging your tail and eating, we’ll do fine. She is keeping up her end of the bargain...poor girl is on a diet, vet told me no more chicken nuggets or french fries as a treat......he said to give her green beans..I have a case of green beans in the kitchen....its food she loves them...GG
