I didn't get Chris' email! But I think the speakers on the Toyota would
drive the neighbors away! esp. Bob Dylan..... no sense of humor I suspect.
Daschunds! Love 'em. Had some as my grade school companions! Funny,
I was told my a neighbor (a really nice one) that they had the same
problem in their Toyota. There is an exaust vent apparently, that
connects to the cabin filter, and they get in that way, and build in the
cabin filter. That still doesn't explain how they go in the car, because
the filter didn't stop it. He suggeted putting a screen on the hole, but
I dunno where it is.
I like the home remedies, tho as my all time personal favorites.
