I need this made

You all have seen those super obnoxious "Baby On Board" tags in cars that have less than stellar driving skills. I need one that is slightly different, but would hopefully help explain my driving-specifically turning-skills. My beloved B has some gnarly carsickness...it's really bad people. I've tried all the tricks, not feeding him, taking short trips to help him get use to it, ginger crackers, even certain air fresheners in the car that are supposed to help. Nothing has worked so now I just drug the hell out of him with Dramamine (per vet instructions) but if I take turns too sharp/fast he STILL upchucks everywhere. It is NOT pleasant for anyone involved so I try very hard when he is in the car to take turns slowly, make them as wide as possible, etc. anything to help him keep it down. SO, I decided that I need this in my back window, because maybe then the a**hole behind me would be a little more understanding. I'm not trying to be a world class jerk taking a million hours to do a turn, I just don't want to clean up dog vomit...the graphic makes it perfect don't you think?

Aww poor B. JJ looooves car rides. He makes me sick cos he runs back and forth in my back seat every time I turn to stick his head out a new window. Reminds me, I need to clean his paw prints off my backseat haha.

I hope you find a good solution, or someone to make you that fantabulous sign.

Carolyn-Girlfriend's dog is the same way. He doesn't stop moving and I'm almost convinced that he made B puke once from watching him...

I love this idea! I want one that says "big clumsy dog on board" because I do the same thing but not because my dog pukes...he often falls into the front seat!!

Crystal-You should totally get it with little stars and birds around his head like he's dizzy!
