Dog palace

On Saturday, just before the sun began to rise, Jess and I began loading our luggage into black Mazda hatchback for our Christmas trip from Seattle to Los Angeles. Normally, when packing, we haphazardly shove our suit cases into the trunk and squeeze bags between the front and back seats. But this year, we decided to leverage the installed roof rack, purchasing a black cargo bag capable of storing up to 15 cubic feet.

Storing all our luggage ā€” two ukuleles, a carry on suit case, Christmas presents for family, dry freezed raw dog food-ā€” overhead freed up the entire rear of the car, allowing Jess to set up what she calls the dog palace:
