Stubborn dog... She's probably figuring that eventually you'll give in and take her for a ride in the car. :D


We had a collie (Peanuts) once who went for rides in the back seat of the car. We were about to go to town in a friend's van one day and she jumped into the van. We didn't want her to go because her presence at our destination would be a problem. She wouldn't get out. What to do?
My wife went to our car, opened the back door and got into the driver's seat. Peanuts got out of the van and into the car. We shut the doors, opened the windows enough for ventilation, and went away in the van.
We felt terrible for tricking her, but when we got home and let her out she ran around and played with everyone the way she did after all her rides.
Taught me a lot.
