Q: Will our dog recognize that we have a shiny new car? — T.U., Lincolnwood, IL
A: Your dog will instantly realize this “moving machine” is different from the old jalopy. Even if your old car didn’t smell like dog to you, it sure did to your pet, and it also carried the scents of other family members. Still, for most dogs, the adjustment period is about five seconds. Enjoy your new wheels; your dog certainly will.
