Thanks! I guess I should have made my screen name LittleLavaVibeHood, lol. Oh well, to late. I forgot the name of the color, to me it was always "red."
I will have to post pictures of the dogs later (yes dogs, plural). I am on my way to work now and don't have time to resize them. In my original post, I didn't want to get into too much detail since this isn't a dog forum, but since I got the car, I've had three dogs who rode in it. I had my dog that I had when I bought the car/who I considered when I bought the car. At the time I got the car I was in a relationship with a man who is now an ex. He had a dog too. And I adopted another dog early this year.
When the ex and I split, he gave me his dog. She had health issues and with his work schedule and such, he just didn't have time to give her proper care. He helped me pay her vet bills, but at that point I had two dogs that rode in the Vibe (they liked to sit in the hatchback area, behind the passenger seats and look out). A few years after we split up, his dog eventually had to be put down because of her health issues (she stopped eating and drinking). She was almost 14. Then about a year ago, the dog I had when I got the Vibe also had to be put down at age 16 (she had brain tumors and they were starting to give her painful seizures and she lost the ability to walk and had a hard time eating too). I didn't like not having a dog in my life, so I adopted one from the shelter this past Spring. She's sweet, but clingy. So much so she wants to sit in the passenger seat and make the airbag detector go off! That's okay for the five minute trip to the vet, but anything else and I fold the back seat down and put a kennel in the car to keep her put.
