Default Ever lock your dog in your car??

So we lost Casey for a few hours yesturday, usually when we dont see him for a few hours its not a big deal because he is either hunting out in the field or out in his dog house sleeping and he does not leave our property.

Well Casey really, really love's cars, He just likes being in them. It does not matter if its not going anywhere he will just sit or sleep in the car. You can't leave a car door open because he will leap in.

Anyways I guess Casey snuck in my moms car when she got home and because he is so sneaky stealthy about jumping in cars my mom did not notice that he jumped in.

Usually when I get home Casey comes out of his dog house to greet me. Not this time. So when I got home I asked where Casey was and the answer was. "i dunno, probably in his Dog house" My mom went and called him and he did not come.

My brother comes from outside and say "umm mom Casey is in your car"

poor Casey was locked in my moms car for a few hours, luckly its cool outside, but I guarentee my mom is going to be double checking her car not to make sure Casey does not sneak into the car while she has her back turned.

Haha. When used to pack up the van for horse shows Peco would always jump in and sit in the passenger seat waiting to go somewhere.

Not a car, but when my mom was a kid she "lost" her neurotic miniature schnauzer, Pepper. They searched everywhere and couldn't find her. Then finally, someone went to the bathroom and she was there, stuck in the tub with the shower doors closed. Pepper had an obsession with the toilet brush, so they usually put it in the tub and closed the doors so she couldn't get to it. She was in the tub looking for it when someone closed the shower door without noticing her in there. Oops.

Not a dog, but we've done that with the cats a few times. LOL Typically the meowing coming from the garage cues us in.

Yeah, Suzie jumped in the car when we were taking out groceries, and someone closed the door, and we didn't notice for several hours. I was honestly getting panicked because once we did notice, we spent 15 minutes calling and searching for her.

She was sitting in the front seat with her sad little puppy eyes, I felt so bad lol
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

Kaiden has got locked in vehicles before. He thinks its great and when you figure it out and let him out he is all 'oh hai' and nonchalantly hops out.

No, but my dogs do love the car. When Violet bolted out the front door one day, all we had to do was jump in the car and drive to where she was (she had treed a cat O_O) and when she saw the car she ran full speed right into it. Thankfully it was us an not a stranger though, because I'm sure she wouldn't differentiate. Car = Trip to the park in her eyes, doesn't matter whose car.

We have accidentally locked Chloe in the garage before, and couldn't find her (we were panicking). Finally we figured out she was in the garage. She must've gone in there when someone went out for a coke or something, and got left out there. Poor baby.
Don't fear tomorrow.

I accidentally forgot Bukra was in the truck after being awake for almost 24 hours and driving half of it! He was in there all night LOL

My dogs all LOVE the truck, and being "stuck" in there wouldn't phase them... they're used to being left in there when I do errands, or overnight if I stay somewhere they can't come in. It's like a giant dog bed!

Yes! Kyra is just like Casey. She will stand at a car door and cry until she's let in. My dad likes to keep his truck door open for her in the summer time if he's working on something in the driveway.

There have been times though in the evening when we've unloaded groceries or something and she snuck in and we didn't find her for a few hours.

One time when I had three dogs, I got out of the car to change the wiper blades, really an easy job on that car, and I left the keys in there, not thinking that one of the dogs could hit the lock button on the door and lock me out, but that's exactly what happened. I got the one blade on and when I was just about done with the second one, Gus jumped up into the front seat and "click". I had to borrow a big screwdriver and a coat hanger to break into my own car.

The most embarrassing thing I ever did was soon after my mother sold her house and moved in with me, waiting to sell my house, so we could move back to Ohio. I was watching TV and she asked me to get something from the spare bedroom, which we used to store stuff that we didn't really use much. I went in, and came right out, and about a half hour later, we couldn't find the dogs. I thought they were outside (they had a baby pool to lay in, so heat wasn't a problem), and so did she, so we thought they had escaped. My Lab Joe was really good at it when he was young, and Blackie would go with him if he found a way out. I went out looking for them, panicky because it was like 114 degrees outside. I drove around for about an hour, and finally came back home to call a friend to help look around my neighborhood that had dozens of streets and hundreds of houses. He comes over and he and I took each side of the neighborhood and started driving around. I came back home after about an hour and a half to go to the bathroom, and when I pulled into the driveway, my mom opens the front door and Joe is looking out at me. They had gone into the spare bedroom, and gone to sleep, ignoring our calls, and just waiting in the near dark for us to come back in.
I had to go back out and find my friend, since this was long before cell phones and it was pretty embarrassing to tell him what had happened.
