Dog owners' most annoying habit

A lot of drivers don't realize that allowing their dog to hang its head out the window is the biggest mistake. Instead, those drivers travel blithely on, ignoring the potential for problems along the way. The problems that disgust me the most involve dogs who bark loudly at cyclists and other drivers. These dogs' owners probably find that amusing, but it can be deadly.. A distracted driver or cyclist suddenly loses his or her focus on the road and unwittingly cause an accident --- all because of a dog's sudden barking.

On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with a dog sitting in the front passenger seat next to a closed window. Actually, it's kind of cute!  My dad, for example, always allowed his dog, Princess, to sit next to him in the minivan when he traveled. And that dog rarely barked. Instead, she sat quietly watching the traffic ahead. As the years passed by and Princess became old and sick, she preferred to lie down on the back seat.
