Most receiving docs, fellow drivers, and gate guards remember Jake before they remember me, my truck or my company. I have had Jake OTR with me with since he was 4 wks old. It was me, Jake, and my Black KW. Jake got his name from the well known “jake brake” that every truck driver is familiar with. I now run a Rasberry Pete, and Jake is right there by my side. Although he has two brothers at home (Bruzer & Vinny; both pugs too), Jake is one solid road dog. All my trucking friends miss Jake when my wife convinces me to leave him home. Jake is my patience, my smiles, my sounding board, my sanity, and my security system (and we all know we need that protection). I am his best friend, he he is mine. Jake should be be voted Overdrive’s most loved Pet, because everyone that meets him loves him, and he loves them right back. He is known for his great kisses, and loves the ladies. That’s not to say he doesn’t do his job if someone strange approaches the truck – beware as he will protect his master all the same. I hope every agrees with me that Jake deserves this honor. Thanks
