These photos prove that cars are a dog's best friend

In 2016, Tesla created a feature that will forever prevent pets from overheating, facing injury or death, in a hot car.

And that’s a very good thing, because … dogs love cars! A lot.

In fact, it seems that the only creatures who are made happier by automobile than humans are canines. And as these photos demonstrate, they may even love cars more (note that none of these hounds is in a hot car with the windows up):
