my fiat 500 - Bub

Fingers crossed this works! Picked up yesterday and took these quick photos this morning before I has a mishap...


















Sorry this one turned for some reason, my dog Frank in his car seat (no dog hairs allowed on the seats!!)

...went to get into Bub (named after Day of the Dead character) and misjudged the height of the car getting in, hit my face on the door frame and split my eyebrow open Had to quickly get out of car to avoid getting blood on the new car seats!!! Quick trip to A&E to glue it back together, and I can happily say I have now been up and down the motorway and done 73 miles!! Loving Bub so far (even if I am scarred for life on the first day of owning him, note to self and anyone else tall...DUCK!!!!)

Well worth the wait and chrome bits to be added and new plate soon

The 500 is quite a tall car though. What car did you have before?

A citroen C3. I think it was more my clumsyness than anything, although I do think the seats are a lot higher. In agony today, will definitely not be making the same mistake again

I got it from here...

He loves it because he can see everything going on outside, and it's nice and secure.

I had to buy a Medium size, he's crossed with a pug so got little stumpy legs

Re: my fiat 500 - Bub

How big is Frank? I'm guessing he may be smaller than a border if he's half pug! It must be his bottom half which is pug cos he really looks like a full border on top!!

My Mack is 24lbs (a bit on the lagre side!)

Re: my fiat 500 - Bub

that is big! He was 11lb on his last check up, it is more on his bottom half (stumpy legs and pig curl tail!)

He's smaller than my moms jack russell if that helps put him into perspective?
