Okay, I pulled up to the Agway as we were buying bird seed and a little treat for Tootsie. I put all the windows down and was walking to the passenger side to get Tootsie to put on her lead when she jumped out the window and took off. Well, she came back and all ended well but now I am worried that she have hurt her front legs from the jump out the window. I have a Land Rover and the window is probably 4.5 feet off the ground. She isn't acting like anything hurts but I can't believe that she is able to jump that far onto pavement without hurting herself!!!! Any opinions?

Thanks for your input. I think that if she hadn't been fit, young (1 year) and at a good weight (20 lbs) she would have been hurt. Does not seem to have any ill effects. This will never happen again .....

Whoa, that's quite a jump. My corgi mix Bruce once jumped out of my car window to follow me to the bakery. It didn't faze him one bit, though it was probably 4 feet high. I had no idea he could do that! And one time Sidney jumped off a big rick, also probably 4, maybe 4 1/2 feet high. I was really scared that he would have hurt his back. He seemed a little stiff the next day, but after that he was just fine. Keep an eye on her, and consider putting the windows halfway up or use a seat belt harness for her.
