    Default I have a DOG free car - and vow, never to allow them in this car again!

    Ok time to sell the car. well, for hubby to sell the car. Once, he says, i have de dogged it.
    De dogged it, what can he mean, its not that bad is it?

    Ohyes it was, it was far far worse. 2yrs worth of running me n my dogs around between cleans. my bad.

    I found 2 martingales never worn, purchased about a year ago! wondered where they went. And another check chain i bought for Brian, that doesnt even go over his head!
    I found some really nasty spider nest in boot. Common house brown < given a non threatening species name by me. Coz whitetail sounds bad.
    I found my body weight in 3 types of dog hair all over the car's interior!
    I found a torn and chewed carpet bit, that cost me $100 to have replaced as it looks like pup dog ladies car!

    This took me all Sunday to clean it. From bernie's long whispy floaty ones, to pohm's short double coat can weave into fabric/carpet ones. I used 3 rolls of gaffa tape, all my dog grooming equip and a hoover. All day long Poor me!

    Never, will i take the dogs in the bloody car again!
    It is not easier to just pop them in the back of the runaround car. Its easier by far, to get them on a ute, open air, no upholstery metal trailer surface.

    I'm afraid my car is approaching what you described Bernie, and I'm dreading cleaning it. My darlings also like to have a final shake off after a swim once we're all loaded in the car, so windows aren't good either. And the rear window..hehe...I cleaned it the other day cos I couldn't see out of it. Even with the dirt gone though, I still couldn't see out of it - just this blurry distorted shadowy view. I discovered that I also have 9 months worth of mastiff slobber on the inside

    My car has vinyl seats. And over the vinyl is a white rip stop car hammock I got custom made from the local horse rug repair shop for about $65 Wow. That's cheaper than the plastic one that was dark blue (hot) from my fave crate retailer. And it fits better too.

    Still dealing with beach sand in strange places. And from time to time - I pull everything out of it and then choose what to put back. emergency toilet paper, water and a fire extinguisher go back in first.

    LOL...i've given up on my ute and resigned it to a 'dog transport vehicle'...dried slobber on all the windows, dog hair everywhere that gets in my mouth when i drive with the windows down. Good thing is no one asks to borrow it to move thier stuff anymore !!

    It's so grubby now i'm pretty sure i could grow spuds in it if i wanted to.

    They dont go in my Landcruiser though or the wifes car. Guess i'm paying rego every year for 2 bloody mutts....car rego that is !!

    I've got 2 words for you Kimmy "The Ute"! 2 wet salty long haired BC's do what you have to do in the back, the cabin is my dog-free, hairless (though less than perfectly clean) space. Not to mention it doubles as a jungle-clearing platform about once a quarter. I think I bought The Ute to transport fish, then garden refuse, then dogs. It does all that and then some.

    PS My house is probably more scungy than the inside of The Ute.

    I only have one dog and accepted a long time ago that if I would ever want my car completely free of dog hair (and sand) I'd have to torch it. Lol The inside of the door that the dog leans against looks like it's made of fur. I tried to get it off once but it's like the hairs have bonded to the upholstery.
