    Subaru "dog Tested"

    Have any of you seen any of these commercials? They are LOL. I don't know how to post a link from a newsletter that I got that had them.

    I had a Subaru and loved it but I had to stop driving due to a disability. I had an Outback. Mine was dog tested with both of my Westie having ridden in it.

    I had a 1982 Subaru wagon till 2004 when I needed to go to an automatic due to foot problems. I toted my 150# shepherd and 35# mixed Scottie in them from Florida to Nebraska yearly with no problems. I just pulled down the back seats, threw a blanket over it and let the dogs have it all. They loved looking out all the windows. Even was able to have their dog bowls back there for them. Stopped at all the visitor centers to let them stretch their legs as well as mine.

    Loved that old car.........5-speed on the floor, low to the ground. This was before they came out with all wheel drive too but that car got me out of a couple scraps. I drove thru very deep water to the point the water came up over the front seats and it never stalled. Of course I had to have the carpet removed and cleaned after that little stunt.......twice.

    They were on here a couple of years ago. Have not seen one in a while.

    Also love the one where they're going down the road and start barking at the mail truck going by. Adorable with the little ones in back in the booster seat and the infant car carrier. Only commercials my DH doesn't complain about. All other commercials are just stupid and some don't make any sense. But these doggie ones do!

    Feline Fanatic, your Subaru is not just "DOG" approved. It's got the "2 DOG" approval - lol. So is the one in the back the "back seat driver"?

    Yes, we are a Subaru family. We got our first one in the early 80's, and we are now in our 4th one. Our favorite was a 1999 Outback which we bought new in May of 1999. Since our every day car is also a 1999 Subaru Legacy sedan, we mainly used the Outback for trips. In October of 2011 my husband had put new tires on the front instead of the back, and driving through the mountains of North Carolina, he started skidding on a deep left turn and off the side of the mountains we went. We rolled at least four times. Frank was driving, I was in the passenger seat, and a friend, Janis, was in the back seat behind Frank. But remember we were in a Subaru. Absolutely no broken bones, I had two bruises, Frank had a few, and Janis had a lot of bruises because she hadn't held on to anything, and just let herself go with the flow of the car. When the sheriff came, he told Frank that that is a very bad curve, and many cars had gone over at that point, but so far no survivors until the 3 of us in the Subaru. So we firmly owe our lives to Subaru. They had to cut the top of the car off to get Janis and myself out of it, so we had to say a sad Good-Bye to our Outback. 12 years old and only 56,000 miles on it.
