A dog-friendly car from Honda

Now, at a time when much of the auto industry is going to the dogs, Honda is actively chasing dogs. The company has designed a Dog Friendly version of its Element, a vehicle that was shown at this month's New York Auto Show. Honda says the vehicle will go on sale this fall. The special package likely will contain:

  • A cushioned pet bed in the cargo area on an elevated platform.
  • An extendable loading ramp. (Did you ever try and lift a Shepherd into an SUV?)
  • A 12-volt rear ventilation fan.
  • Second row seat covers in a dog-pattern that matches the pet bed fabric.
  • A spill-resistant bowl and all-season rubber mats with a bone pattern.
  • Special Edition emblems.

This car seems to be very friendly for your pet dog. After all, your pet is a part of your family isn't it

If only Honda would sell this in Europe - there must be a host of owners with old or unathletic dogs who would love to pick up one of these
