Yes! This is Bus! I've never had a dog who takes up residence in the driver's seat as soon as the driver vacates it. And when I get back in (particularly if my hands are full, or if I'm trying to hurry so as to not get mugged in a sketchy area), I sometimes have to physically push him out of the way- I figured if I just climbed in and sort of sat "on" him, he'd get the hint, but then it was just a struggle to get him out from under my butt in the confines of the car. I assume either it's because the seat is warm from being occupied (and as it's often just me and him, is the only seat that's pretty much always "pre-warmed"), or maybe because he knows that when the occupant of that seat returns, the trip will resume. He spends a lot of time hanging out in the car, and you would never know there was a dog in there when he curls up in the seat- little black dog curled tightly on a black seat. Better than his alternative car behavior though, which is sprawled out sunning on the dash on warm sunny days
