Pet Owner or Pet Parent? Fur Kids Are Family, Too!

 places we go with our dog Daisy

People with dogs usually fall into one of two categories: there are those who think of themselves as a “pet owner” and then there are those of us who consider our fur kid as a part of the family. As pet parents, we take Daisy into consideration with just about every decision we make. Where we live, what we do on the weekends, where to go on vacation, and even what car to take when we all go somewhere together.  And we go LOTS of places together!

That’s why I love the new videos Subaru did as part of their “Dog tested. Dog approved.” campaign. They really celebrate and share in the canine-centric view we pet parents have of life with our fur kids.

There’s a new one I especially love called Kids, featuring Grant Weber, celebrity and Subaru Canine Sales Associate. It’s got adorable puppies, so what’s not to love!?! Check it out:

Daisy thought that one was cute but wants you to know there is NO WAY she is riding in a car seat! She’s a bit of a sports fanatic like her papa, and is a fan of dressing up in her football jersey and watching the games or tailgating with pals. If she had her way, every day would be game day and she’d pack up the car full of tailgating necessities just like these dogs!

Daisy thinks those fur kids sure have the right idea! If your dog also likes tailgating and other four-wheeled activities, be sure to stop on over at Subaru’s Facebook page where you get them their own Dog Driver’s License, Visit the Dog Matchmaker, Ask the Expert and more. Daisy and I have been playing around with their cool new apps already and they’re super fun! Next week we’ll show you some photos of Daisy taking a virtual test drive using the Subaru Facebook app so be sure to check back soon!
