Eat The Wind: 25 Supercool Dogs In Cars

By Serge Bielanko |

what up dog.

Dogs and cars just go together.

Let’s admit that little nugget right here, right now.

There’s something special about dogs in cars, an electrical charge that shoots off of them when they know they are going for a ride. It’s as if they’ve been waiting since the dawn of time for you to say, “Go on, hop in.”

Their eyes glitter. Their tongues drip.

Soon, they will be hanging their heads out the window for all the world to see.

And soon they will  be breathing in that wonderful fast rushing wind that bursts across their happy faces as they’re hanging out the side of your ride.

Excited dogs offer us a glimpse at what life is really about. Or at least what it should be about. Watching them soak up the sunshine and the sky/watching them watching people and other cars and other dogs stuck in yards and on leashes along the streets we travel, we are witness to the joy of freedom. Because for a while there, as long as you keep the pedal to the metal, our dogs feel as free and alive as anything, or anyone, who has ever lived.

So get you a car, some sunshine, an open road, a little wind, and your best friend hanging out the window ASAP, my friend.

Now, you’re livin’.

Both of ya.

    One of my favorite photos ever is one I took of my first dog with his head sticking out of the rear window. I was driving and stuck the camera out the window. I miss that dog…
