A few weeks ago a friends little mini poodle was killed in a minor fender bender. Like many pet owners, including myself! they were holding their pet on their lap......the accident triggered the air bags to go off and the force of the airbag killed the dog. The owner was not injured but devastated over her pet. Before hearing this, I used to travel in the car, in the front passenger seat with nofur in his travel bag on my lap. It never occured to me that air bags could do that, although it makes sense! So even if you are being safe and putting your sphynx in a travel bag, be sure you are not putting it on your lap with an air bag that could go off!
