What in your little mind is so wrong with crating a dog and securely strapping him to the roof? People put animals in kennals and throw them in the part of an airplane that’s hot and loud. I’ve seen kennels being pulled by cars, or horse stalls. WTF is the difference? For that matter my dog hangs it’s head out of my car window the entire time we’re on a road trip. Actually having the animal in the car loose is more dangerous for the pooch than being secured outside in a kennel/crate.
No one here has ever heard of anyone doing such a thing, putting the dog on the roof for a 650 mile trip.
When the dog got sick from it Mitt pulled into a station, hosed off the roof and the car, the cage and the dog, put the dog back into the cage and jumped back up on the freeway.
No one has ever heard of anyone else doing this, and then especially to continue it after the dog got sick, it was probably illegal at the time, and is illegal today.
You do not need to defend everything that someone does just because you embrace his politics, if most people saw them pull into that station, they would intervene and speak to the man before he returned to the freeway.
As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. Dad! he yelled. Gross! A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter whod been riding on the roof in the wind for hours.
As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway.”
