Dog Tested, Dog Approved

Earlier this week, I retired my 2005 Mazda, which I purchased new.  130,000 miles and bushels of dog fur later, I decided it was time for a different vehicle.

The main reason I was looking for something different is that I drive anywhere from 300-500 miles per week with my job.  Winter is coming, and I wanted something with four wheel drive or all wheel drive.

I had narrowed my choices down to:  Mazda CX-5 or CX-7, Ford Edge, or a Subaru Forester or Outback.

I obviously wanted a hatchback that would allow at least one of my dogs to ride comfortably.

On Wednesday, I made a trip to beautiful Madison, Indiana (it's seriously gorgeous) to look at a 2012 Subaru Forester with 32,000 miles on it.  I came home with it...

The back seats fold down, and I love that my dogs can stand in the back.  If needed, I am confident that all three could ride comfortably back there together if needed.

After driving it for four days, I am already in love with it, and it has the dogs' seal of approval.


  1. Subarus are awesome cars!! Congrats!!

  2. I am unspeakably jealous of that hatch.

  3. Wow!!!! Nice purchase!!

  4. Congrats! A Subaru Outback is #1 on my wish list for our next car! There's a reason, I think, that they market to dog folks! They're great vehicles.

  5. Nice! The dogs are always a consideration when purchasing a vehicle....there are a few nice choices out there and it's not always easy to choose!
