Every time my human can't find a place to park, she says she wishes we owned a Smart car. They're tiny and can fit in the tiniest little space, she always tells us. And if you park them sideways, they get even smaller.

Last time we were circling the neighborhood looking for an empty spot, I asked my human why we don't just trade our big dumb car for a little smart car. She just sighed and said
Because you and Dutch won't fit in one.


Well. I kinda took that as a challenge. I mean, the car we ride in isn't exactly huge. And we don't get to ride in the
whole car either - just the part my human calls the "dog pod". Which is just her way of making the little back compartment with a big window sound cooler than it is. Anyway. I wanted to show my human that us dogs weren't going to stand in the way of easy parking - prove that we all could fit in a tiny car. And yesterday I finally got my chance.

The car was tiny, yellow and parked right in front of our house. It was a convertible, so I just jumped right in. It felt big enough to me, but I couldn't convince brother Dutch to get in it.
NO WAY, he said, am I getting in THAT. My human just kinda laughed.

Puglet, that's not a car - it's a Go Kart. And it's not ours. Please get out before whoever it belongs to comes back.

Uh-oh. As my human was taking today's picture, the Go Kart people walked up. They were visiting from Germany and had helmets. They didn't really mind that I was sitting in their Kart & asked my human if she could take their picture too. We got to talking so I asked what it was like to ride in the little Kart. They said it was fun, even though they almost got hit by a bus. Twice.

Hi Puglet! Even though that little car/go kart is cute, you do not want to put your life in danger by riding in it. You look very cute in it, but I think you would be better off in something a little larger like a Mini Cooper. Mom has one and I got to drive it yesterday. Check out the pictures on my blog.

Ooooh - a Mini sounds nice and small. I wonder if Dutch would fit in one? He's kinda big.
