Hi Bronte, welcome to the forum. I'm cazypops and I have a parsons russell called jasper and two moggies called Flirty and Bandit.
I drive a Suzuki Swift and that has plenty of room for Jasper on the back seat, but it's not good if I'd wanted to put him in the boot part. A friend I work with has a Corsa, and she has a BC that goes in the boot of her car with plenty of room.
Hope that helps, and we'd love to hear more about you and your pets.
I think it would depend how many and what size dogs you have, and where you'd prefer them to travel?
I drive a Ford Fiesta (old 2007 shape) and can easily fit 2 small/medium size dogs on the rear seat, the boot can comfortably fit a dog about the size of a Springer or Collie - anything much bigger and it would be a bit cramped. My brother used to have a Corsa, but it was the older model. It had about the same amount of space as my car does, the newer Corsas look to be about the same sort of size.
Hi Bronte, welcome to the forum I drive a Suzuki Celerio which is a smaller car than the Swift, but it has a bigger boot. I can fit my English Springer, Springer Cross and our Jack Russell in the boot comfortably, although admittedly they've never done a long journey in there.

We have between us a Skoda Roomster and a VW Polo. I don't know how small is small to you, but a Roomster isn't that big and yet has TONS of boot space. We fit our Labrador and Setter both in the back with room for another small dog
The Polo would only fit one medium to small dog in the boot but could easily fit both our dogs on the back seats. They used to both happily sit on the back seats of a Ford KA!

Honda Jazz owner here, dogs go in middle of the car. The seats fold upwards giving good amount of space in the foot well. So glad we don't put dogs in the boot, today while mum was waiting to get out of a junction someone rear ended us in a 4x4 type car (we were stationary)! The three dogs seem totally fine we are rather shaken up and I know I am feeling sore! Poor mums little jazz is looking worse for wear and has reminded me why we don't put dogs in the boot as the rear of the car is designed to buckle in an accident. My Jazz is in for mot and service tomorrow so we wont be able to get dogs back into car till Saturday to make sure they have not been affected by incident.
caz2golden: On walk today saw a dead branch hanging from a tree over a road. Probably been there a while but have not noticed before! Who do you report it too, tree would be owned by whoever has the field but the branch is over highway?

lotsofcats: We had very high winds during the night and I slept through it all but if Kobi had barked just once I would immediately be awake.

caz2golden: We had the same here Lotsofcats, except I was awake for fair part of it. We had intermittent power cuts too. Felt sorry for the raw pet food delivery man the next morning who was probably coming across a lot of downed trees etc.
