D.J. Tanner never traveled like that!
Before embarking on a family trip with her children Natasha, 13, Lev, 12, and Maksim, 8, Candace Cameron Bure posted a (joking) shot of one of her boys smiling inside of a dog carrier on her Instagram.
The former Full House star, who now stars on ABC Family’s Make It or Break It shared the photo with her followers on Twitter, writing, “Road trip to Napa. This is how our kids travel.”
“Well that looks uncomfortable,” one reader replied, while another added, “Don’t put him on the roof now.”
Most of her readers took her prank in stride, with one joking, “Ya, his crate’s way [bigger] than the one we have for our 12y/o daughter!” At least, we hope she’s joking .
