Benny Just Says No To Country

In his earlier days, Benny was always a great little car traveler. Recently he has begun drooling like a running faucet as soon as he gets into his crate in the car. First I thought it was just normal puppy carsickness, but it was erratic, sometimes he was fine. I wondered what could be different in the car? Was it after eating? before eating? when Beatrix was with us? when Beatrix wasn't with us? Daytime? Nighttime? Window open? Windows closed? A/C on or off? Radio on or off? Kind of music?!!!! My usual choice for car entertainment is classical music but recently my ears have been craving good old country music. I just can't get enough of the stuff and have been playing it non stop whenever I'm driving. Well Benny has demonstrated in no uncertain terms that he's had it with George and Travis and Brad and Willie and all the rest of those guys. Maybe they remind him too much of his beginnings in Arkansas. From now on, whenever Benny is a passenger it will be classical only.
