How big is your dog?

We have two adults, one pre-schooler in a car seat, and two dogs. The car seat goes in the rear-middle, the small dog on either side, the big dog in the back, and our bags wherever we can fit them. It's no minivan but it's roomy enough and a lot more fun to drive everyday.

Finally. Sorry for the crappy indoor iPhone pics.

Dog is medium size.
Problem is that we have one 9mnth and one yet to be born, coming in july With all the stuff infants require, I think I am leaning towards the larger Taurus X.

Dude, don't fight it, you're done with "cool." All that's left is to submit:

I saw one of these outside the Silver and Gold Pawn Shop in Vegas over the weekend. Maybe not a real wagon, but by Porsche standards, pretty damn close. 505hp with a twin turbo; AWD. Pretty fucking badass.

All yours (!) for under $140k.

You don't want a peugeot diesel with the 4wd. Trust me on this- I love pugs, and I had a 505 turbo diesel station wagon. Pretty underpowered by today's standards. I actually thought their 4 cyl gas engine was a nice unit, I had one of those too. And they make a turbo. . . . great car, hard to find.

I've seen one or two of the Dangel 505s for sale in the states. Usually in poor condition. God those were great station wagons.

I disagree. That is a CUV which in my opinion is another name for a wagon. Hell it is a big car, on a car platform! It is not a truck. The 2011 Ford Explorer is going to be released next week I think and I am willing to argue that it should be considered a wagon instead of a SUV as it too will be built on a car platform.
