Crochet Car Blanket for Pooches | Posh Pooch Designs

I Love To take my pooches with me in the car,
And they love to go for rides in the car,
 When the weather permits it!
But they do not like to sit on the leather seat.
So I made them a thick pad to sit on.
I made it to fit perfectly in the bucket seat.
I tuck it in at the back, and it stays put.

It is also the perfect size for the cart at Pet Smart
 or Lowes. And a great fit For their crate, or even a rug 
for under the water bowl.

How do you keep their nails from tearing it up? I've always wondered :-)
