SAFELY HOME, FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Disclaimer: Her and her dogs received a Sleepypod Sport harness and a Sleepypod Utility harness as a collaborative effort to generate awareness regarding travel safety. The feedback and opinions shared in this post are ours, in our words. It is our choice, and a pleasure to share this product/service information.
I don’t remember the accident. I remember cinnamon gum.
The gum burned my mouth as my tears burned my eyes. My bum was cold from sitting on the pop cooler at the front of the diner. My sister and I each had a waitress standing next to us. These poor girls tried their best to comfort us (and, quiet us by giving us gum). Our sobs echoed throughout the restaurant. Perhaps only slightly less disturbing than the screech of tires and melding of metal the patrons had heard only moments before.
Following the collision with a drunk driver, our father was taken to the hospital for stitches and to be checked for other, less obvious injuries. My sister and I waited for our Grandparents to come for us; to collect their precious cargo,
When I was a child, car seats and seat belts were not mandatory. I recently learned from my father, that it was nearly impossible to keep my sister and I ‘belted in.’ My father – inventor of many things, designed and created car seats especially for my sister and me, the day before our trip to visit our Grandparents.
We were lucky to walk away with only a few scrapes and bruises. Had we not been wearing our seat belts, you might not be reading this post.
I can imagine the thoughts my father must have had after recovering from the traumatic event. Thankfully, he was not one of too many people, that replay an ordeal over, and think
If only I could go back in time, I would do things differently.
My companions are my precious cargo. Henry and Reese travel with my husband and me whenever possible. We love spending time with them; visiting our favourite places and experiencing new and exciting adventures. In our home or hotel room, cuddles are limitless. I will not, however, sacrifice the already limited time I will have with my dogs for a few extra hours of lap time in the car.
We are grateful for the opportunity to share the importance of travel safety, and introduce to you to the stellar products available from Sleepypod®. The harnesses are not only fashion forward, their innovative designs, have been rigorously tested earning Sleepypod several awards and a five-star rating from the Center for Pet Safety. Clickit Sport includes the same dynamic crash tests used to test child safety restraints.
Clickit Sport is Sleepypod’s next generation dog safety harness. Our unique Infinity Loop design, in combination with an energy absorbing padded vest, is engineered to work together to distribute and reduce damaging forces in an accident without the need of additional hardware or attachment straps.
Sleepypod’s easy to use Infinity Loop system reduces additional attachment and detachment steps. Three points of contact reduce forward and lateral movement in the event of a collision or sudden stop. Two loops extend from the Infinity Loop system to provide attachment points for insertion through, then into the vehicle’s seatbelt.
These stunning harnesses can also be used for walking. GREAT when you’re on the road and need to stop for a stretch and a wee (or three). No need to switch from safety harness to walking harness.
