Freckles is an awesome dog but he has a very sensitive stomach and has gotten sick many times. One time he got sick when we were visiting family in Long Island. We had to drive back to Manhattan to take him to the vet. Even though he had really bad diarrhea we still kept him inside the door because you can always clean your car but your dog is irreplaceable. I don’t consider Freckles a family dog. I consider him a part of our family and I would never put a family member on the roof of my car so I don’t understand people who do… I’m looking at you Mitt Romney.
