  1. Please remind your readers: If you’re taking your dog with you on a trip in a rental car, please put a blanket down on the seat where your dog is sitting. Most car rental places don’t care if you have a pet with you, but cleaning hair off the seat quickly for the next customer is a *nightmare*. Especially if you’ve got a line of angry people waiting at the airport to get their car FAST! Thank you!
