Could three-point belts for your lil' bow wow be in the offing in Massachusetts? One state legislator says he might be compelled to propose a new law that would keep unrestrained animals from your car. The Boston Herald reports that state Rep. Martin Walsh is annoyed that dogs are running around inside cars, distracting drivers. “When I drive down the road and I see a dog running around the car, particularly on the lap and front seat, that’s crazy,” Walsh told the paper. He's considering a new law that would require drivers to buckle in their pets, as part of a wider look at dog safety in the Bay State. We're not sure if a teacup Chihuahua can be adequately restrained by a seatbelt, but God knows they need some sort of supervision now that Mama Hilton's headed to the hoosegow.
