WTF? Backseat Driver

WTF? Backseat Driver

July 28, 2010

Like all stereotypical males, Mr. Wild Dingo enjoys critiquing my driving skills.  Last month I drove Mr. Wild Dingo to the airport. Loki and Juno came with us and provided an eye-opening, err ... ear-opening critique of Mr. Wild Dingo's driving skills. Internet, feel free to make your own judgements. But I feel the impartial critics have spoken. Two out of two backseat driving critics have agreed. Mr. Wild Dingo's driving skills are hazardous to their health.

And before anyone points out our car is not pet-safe, save your point. A pet-safe car with crates has been on the top of my list and if we weren't moving, it would have been done a long time ago. No, pet seat belts don't work with cracker dogs. It took me a half hour to untangle Loki the last time I tried one. And believe me, I've tried every adjustment to keep it from tangling. Sigh. Damn cracker.

  1. Classic! Nice cracker chomps on Loki, and excellent wooing from Juno. I wonder how Mr. Wild Dingo will respond? Perhaps he has his own evidence, as well?
    (and my crazy lady, of course)

  2. Ha ha ha 'snort' 'snort'! But thumbs up for Mr Wild Dingo for being so calm despite the 'harsh critics' from Loki and Juno.

    We need to send you a proper email on how we manage to go to places like the museums when you are traveling with your dogs. We might do a blog about this topic or else, we'll drop you an email.

    When are you planning to move over to CH officially?


  3. Considering that it looks like Mrs. Wild Dingo was filming whilst driving I think perhaps that Loki and Juno were saying their goodbyes to this world. Yuh.

    Now regarding their comments on the Mr. Dingo driving. Sheesh. Sounded like riding in the car with my Grandma and Grandpa. Just yack, yack, yack, the whole time, worry, worry worry. Loki is most expressive.

    Yuh, and we don't have seat belts either or crates either. Why? Well because a Mango sized crate would take up the entire mastiff mobile and both of us get tangled cracker dog in seat belts.

    Oh yeah, Loki, dude, love hearing your voice. You have quite the vocal range.


  4. Oh, I need to save this video and play it whenever we're out in the car for my hubby! This is one of the funniest videos I've seen in a long time! Thank you for filming it as it really is and putting it out there for all to see!

  5. Its been a rough day at work... but this! This made me LOL!
    The captions were priceless!
    Now... back to work... I'll need to keep this window open when I need a break later!

  6. MWAHAHAHA!!!! Thanks for the captions because Mom didn't actually turn up the volume when we were watching. Apparently Abby and I get a little, erm, excited when we hear other dogs on the teevee/computer. But I can tell if we ever visit, we most definitely want to be chauffeured by Mrs. Dingo. (And to be fair, we have seat belt harness thingys that we wear - crates are NOT our friends... But when we are in the House With Wheels, we are free-range dogs.)

  7. Moms do everything better than dads. Our mom was laughing so hard at this video. I don't appreciate her giving attention to other dogs, even if they are Loki and Juno on the computer, so I had to go stand on the computer and deliver kisses to get my mom's attention properly focused.


  8. ROTFLMAO! (That's what our mom said.)
    Loki, take a chill pill, dude! In Mr. Dingo's defense, it didn't seem ALL that bad. But obviously, Mom is the driving force in your pack! (Get it?) Ha-roo rooo rooo!

    jack a-roo & miss moo

  9. Mr WD is focused on the road while driving. Mrs. WD is filming the backseat while driving. Maybe Loki was expressing gratitude for the actual looking at the traffic thing?

    P.S. - Hmmmm - Six Siberian Huskies all in seat belts at the same time and no one gets tangled? Maybe Loki needs to come to seat belt school with us!

  10. Hey Loki at least woo got to use the princess pillow for ahhh. ... 2 seconds! and Mistah Dingo obviously can't hear your critiques. maybe a little louder next time! blahahaha.


  11. Wooos! I think Dad would stop driving if we did that... but Mom is the only one who yelps we he drives, we have learned the hard way, no noise or crates fur us, the only rouble is I am louder in a crate and quiet out of it.

  12. That is one of the funniest things we have seen in a long time. If we did that while Dad was driving he would act like a sitcom Dad and yell at us and get all red in the face and threaten to never take us anywhere again.

    You guys should be happy your Dad was driving you somewhere and give him a break.

  13. Ha! HA! That is the funniest video I've seen in a while! Hilarious!

    I totally know what you mean about having a "pet safe" car - in our last year in Auckland, because we'd sold our 4x4 (coz we originally thought we were leaving a year early) - we were left with our little 2-door Toyota Cynos...and people's mouths used to drop open watching Honey cram herself into the back seat! 🙂 I"m sure if we breaked suddenly, 70kg of Great Dane would have come flying through and straight through the windscreen so it was definitely not safe! But sometimes you have to just work with what you've got - we certainly weren't going to buy another "suitable" car just for a year! Anyway, thank goodness at least Honey has always been trained to lie down in the car...but she did take to start resting her chin on the driver's shoulder...the SLOBBER that went everywhere!!! 😀
