Default Easy way to turn passenger airbag off and on?

I did a search and it seems the answer is "No", but I thought I would ask anyway, just to make sure.

I like to take my dog with me when I go places. When I do, I put her in the back seat wearing her harness and then I clip her in with just enough leash to be able to move a bit, but not enough to fall off the edge of the seat. She's a little thing, all of 8 pounds, half long hair chihuahua/half Pomeranian. I would prefer to have her in the fron with me, on the passenger seat, but if the airbag ever deploys it could kill her.

I would like for an easy way to turn off the airbag when she's in the car and to turn it on when I have a human passenger.

Does the passenger airbag run off of a separate fuse I could remove and install as necessary?

Is it easy and, more importantly, safe to install some sort of on/off switch?

What do you other dog lovers do?

Thanks.

I have 07 turbo lite, when I have my dogs or anything under 50lbs my airbag automatically turns off by it self. Have a lite on center dash that lights up indicating my pass airbag is off don't know if it's like that on first Gen. Happy cruising.

How cool is that! I've never heard of that before.

I am guessing the Gen 1 doesn't do that as I've never noticed that light on my dash nor is it mentioned in my owner's manual.
