    First ! Wow that is totally adorable… and maybe a little bit dangerous

  2. Bunny Ann says:

    He is wearing a harness and I’m sure the girl behind him is holding him too. Puppehs love the wind through their ears!!

  3. Objects in mirror are cuter than they appear

    Oh My God! Is a person is taking a picture while driving? And the puppy is putting it’s head out the window — I know a guy who lost his arm doing that in a school bus! And that woman’s hands do not look nearly sticky enough for this situation. And a harness like that can strangle a puppy if you haven’t put it on just right. And . . .

    BTW, Awwwwwww.

  5. The only thing to complain about is that it’s not me with the puppy ridding around.
    Noooo… I have to work in a stuffy office. Not fair :-(

  6. Note: objects in mirror might get their little nosies kissed and thems tummies rubbed until they squeeeeeeeee!

  7. Andi from NC says:

    Such a happy puppeh!!!! I couldn’t be trusted to drive under these – I’d be too busy looking in my mirrors at the qte!!!

  8. Is the picture taken mid-ear flop from the wind?

  9. Hooray something furry! The previous snake post was freaking me out.

  10. While I love the picture, to any other dog owner’s out there, I thought I would warn you: don’t travel at high speeds with your dog’s head out the window! I understand, as I have been told through a few veterinarians, the pressure from the wind is really bad for the dog’s ears.

    Nonetheless, still a cute pic! :-)

    With Love and Gratitude,

  11. “I been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
    Hangin’ out the window to try to see it clearer
    But my breath fogged up the glass
    So I drew a new face and I la-a-ha-a-haffed

    Scooch on over a little closer, dear
    And I will nibble your ear …”

  12. BStrange says:

    squeeeeeee….. I love how the flappy ear makes him look like he just heard a treat bag rustle.

  13. It’s also dangerous because if the car jerks to a sudden stop or goes around a corner too quickly, (or if there is a crash) the dog’s neck can bang against the hard window frame and they can become very seriously injured, even to the point of breaking their neck.

  14. @pyrit, yay, thanks for the earworm, love mr Mraz!!

  15. <3 flow with the wind wee one <3

  16. GingerBean says:

    hunh. I hadn’t thought about the wind pressure being bad for their ears. Makes sense, though. I learn stuff all the time on this site. :)

  17. GingerBean says:

    oh and Yay for no more American Apparel ads! I can deal with the Progressive lady and always love the ModCloth ads.

  18. This car isn’t necessarily in motion, is it?

  19. Also, the dog’s back paw could hit the window-up button and squish him, or a deer could be running next to the car and knock the puppy out of the window, or the woman might have to sneeze but doesn’t want to spread her germs on the new puppy so she lets go for one second right as they “turn a really sharp corner” and the puppy falls out, or it starts raining unexpectedly and the puppy gets wet, or a bee happens to be flying by and gets caught in the puppy’s nose, or the puppy might try to tell the driver which lane he should be courteously driving in which would make the driver yell in return “DO YOU WANNA DRIVE, DOG!??!!” and that would make the puppy feel bad and jump out the window, but he would have forgotten about that harness attached to him which yanks out the woman, too, and then he’ll feel really bad. All very likely scenarios that all probably happened right after this picture was taken.

  20. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    Kathy: While it’s not possible to determine the car’s speed exactly, we can gather a clue from the surrounding area, which appears to be a tree-lined road. We can assume that the car was driven at the sort of moderate speed that would be appropriate for such a road.

  21. I think it’s highly unlikely that the car was traveling fast. Whoever it was had to risk holding their camera out the window to take the picture and I don’t think a person would do that at highway speeds.

  22. sunnymum says:

    It’s also unsafe because their eyes are exposed (used to work for animal hospital).

    Love the one ear up and one ear down look :)

    i vote a new R U TUFF ENUFF tag:

    Also, the[INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE]’s back paw could hit the window-up button and squish him, or a deer could be running next to the car and knock the [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE] out of the window, or the woman might have to sneeze but doesn’t want to spread her germs on [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE] so she lets go for one second right as they “turn a really sharp corner” and the [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE] falls out, or it starts raining unexpectedly and the [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE] gets wet, or a bee happens to be flying by and gets caught in the [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE]’s nose, or the [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE] might try to tell the driver which lane he should be courteously driving in which would make the driver yell in return “DO YOU WANNA DRIVE, [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE]!??!!” and that would make the [INSERT CUTE ANIMAL HERE] feel bad and jump out the window, but he would have forgotten about that harness attached to him which yanks out the woman, too, and then he’ll feel really bad.

    [said in Job "Arrested Development" Bluth voice]:

    YEAH! AND THEN! AND THEN! THEN SOMETHING ELSE HAPPENS OR OR OR OR THEN ANOTHER ELSE!

  25. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    Sharpy: Heh. :) Some of this concern-nuffing, however well-intentioned it might be, reminds me of the Bob Balaban character from “A Mighty Wind,” who fretted endlessly about flower arrangements that “might” poke people in the eye, and stage lights that “could” fall and hurt someone. Theater manager Michael Hitchcock’s reaction at the end of this clip answers it well:

  26. Hon Glad says:

    Some dogs do the head out of the widow thing, then pass wind rendering the air unbreathable.

  27. brain bubble says:

    i will run along edge of the road and catch the puppeh when he does fall out….and I have special nose creme to slather on the dried up nostrils from letting the puppeh have the wind in its face….and I carry puppeh bandages for boos….I have injections ready for bee stings and towels for wet puppehs and offer counseling services for verbally abusedpuppehs taking any snasty remarks from drivers….so no worries. It’s all covered in my rump pack….
    and lastly I can be dragged along the back of the car for quicker service for a small charge.

  28. Scout C says:

    Meaghan—never underestimate the stupidity of the American public. To get to work each day I drive on an interstate (55 to 65 MPH speed limits) through both urban and rural areas. You wouldn’t believe the idiotic things I have seen people doing while driving, even with children and babies in the vehicle. Holding a camera out the window would not even register on the scale. The pic is very cute but dangerous to do with a sweet puppy. Just because nothing bad happened doesn’t mean it’s a good thing to do.

  29. Squee! SO cute. He should get some of those doggles! Plus it looks like someone is holding on to the little pup.

  30. @Scout C

    This photo was taken in England, that’s the passenger side.

  31. O NO (he/she/or it) DI'UNT!!!!! says:

    I vote for brain bubble for Cuteness President !!!

  32. cubbybutt says:

    nothing like the sight of a a human hand pulling an over zealous mini pup back into a car.

  33. Aww, adorable!

  34. Shannon says:

    I love the preemptive anti- nuff strike the best I think.

  35. If the pupster had on some Doggles, he’d be ready to go!!

    Scout – I was driving to work the other day and there was a really erratic driver switching lanes all over the place, driving fast, then slow, passing people…and at one point he was next to me. I looked over and the dude had his cell phone DUCT TAPED TO HIS HEAD!! At that moment, I truly felt that I had seen it all. If I hadn’t been so stunned, I would have grabbed MY cell phone and taken a picture.
