doggiedad if your dog is car comfortable take the Beamer. stop often
to give the dog a break. include breaks in your travel time.
allow for a lot of breaks.

i have a hammock in the back of my car. my car is to small
for a crate.

She just always travels in it - of course never this long of a trip!

Obviously, the 3 series is much more comfortable to drive, especially 1000 miles.

But, obviously, a nice big crate is out of the question.

Are there any options for taking her in the sedan or am I crazy for even pondering it (ie: go with the SUV)
