A couple of "firsts" today!
It was a glorious day today, so the wife and I decided to drive down to Oceanside pier to see the high surf and big waves (8 to 15’ high) that we’ve been hearing about on the news. I then ask her if we should take our dog, Jazzy, along. Jazzy’s good in cars, but has never rode in the SLK. Being that the passenger seat is going to be shared, we didn’t know if she would stay in front of the seat, or lay on the wife, lap dog style (she’s a 40 pounder).
We start off lap style and that went well..she really enjoyed the sensation of top down driving. After awhile, while the car was moving in traffic, the top started to close and the windows started to move! I realized just then that Jazzy must have “one touched” the control button, thanks to Smart Top. So the rest of the drive I had my right hand over the control so she couldn’t do it again. I suppose I could have changed the setting to turn one touch off, but didn’t think about it at the time.
On the way home she stayed in front of the seat and seemed OK with that also.
That might be the only regret I have about the SLK.. not enough room for the pooch.
Any others take their “babies” for a ride?
