Just about every dog we know loves to go for a car ride. Chevy decided to take this predilection seriously and invited "thought leaders in the pet world" to a special breakfast at the New York Auto Show, currently running at the Javitz Center.
Hey, that's Brooklyn Bark!
And with Care Associates whose average age is twenty-something, and average gender is male, we went in force.
With Blade, David Robinson's pup, in tow as our Official Tester, we all loaded into a Tahoe and a Denali which Chevy sent to pick us up at the crack of dawn (well, 7:45 am).
Chevy walled off a section of the Auto Show to show us everything from the 45th anniversary Camaro (Bark Master liked that one) and the 427 Corvette to the Volt and the Cruise Echo and the Suburban and the Equinox. Not just the dogs drooled; we did too!
We who think the world of our dogs are gratified that world is taking note of our passion. According to a survey by AAA and Kurgo (a dog product manufacturer) 56% of respondents have driven with their dog at least once a month in the past year. Only once a month?!?
Bottom line is that Chevy and other major manufacturers are taking note that owners not only walk their dogs but drive them, too. At Brooklyn Bark we look forward to future inovations and accomodations that business - big and small - will be making for our pups.
