Absolutely, well, sort of.
We have an SUV in part because of the dog and part to haul stuff around for home improvement projects. Those in california can appreciate that a million dollar home can still be a major fixer upper. Anyway, we got the charcoal interior on the ML specifically because it's easier to maintain, especially with the dog. She loves the back with the tilt-out windows. Since we bought it we've had a hitch installed and bought a hitch-mounted step for our 75 lb Chocolate Labrador Retriever puppy. (15 months). Just got the hitch completed. Long story on an aftermarket hitch. We bought a product called Twistep which plugs into the hitch but we still have to teach her how to use it. Hope to keep the painted bumper intact.
The new E350 is well, so far, off limits. I do need to buy one of those back seat hammock things because someday we may need to have her ride in that, although I hope it's not too soon. She is an angel, though and wouldn't chew on anything in the car. Of course, we'd never leave her in there unattended, so...
