Suggested by Terri Card of Corvallis, Ore. and Cindy Abell of Austin, Texas.
If you are a dog owner, you know that one of your dog's most important responsibilities is to ride in the car with you with its head sticking out the window, so that it can bark violently whenever it sees a potential enemy threat in the form of another dog, a squirrel, a mailbox, a flying insect, a cloud, nothing, etc.
Yes, protecting your car is a vital dog task, but it is also a physically demanding one. A dog sticking its head out the window, hour after hour, is likely to develop a condition that veterinarians call Wind Blowing On The Eyeballs Syndrome (WBOTES) which, if not treated, can, over time, cause the dog to blink. Of course your dog would never complain, but if it could talk, it would say to you: ''Hey! Idiot! I need goggles!''
That is why you should give your dog a pair of these Doggle brand doggy goggles, which will enable your dog to protect you and your vehicle in style and comfort for many years, until it becomes old and feeble and goes to that Big Kennel in the Sky, at which point it can be replaced by the following tasteful item in our Holiday Gift Guide.
