I was happy to see both familiar and new (to me, anyway) faces among the Most Loved Pets first-place winners announced New Year's Day.
And finally we announce the top vote-getters of Overdrive's Most Loved Pet contest: a Rottweiler cross, a white and gray cat and a grand harlequin macaw.
Recognized are a Pomeranian who visits hospitals to bring joy and love to patients, a cat who makes life on the road more fun and a macaw who loves to ride in the truck and watch the traffic.
Join us a countdown to the most-popular stories of the year, measured by total number of pageviews throughout the year.
The ruckus that was the "Ride for the Constitution" and ongoing confusion over CARB's emissions rules, irritation with CSA and a slight hope for hours flexibility rounded out 2013. Happy early New Year, drivers. Hang on tight...
A video look-back on 2013 put together by owner-operator George Parker for the George and Wendy Show YouTube channel.
A Shetland Sheepdog, a cat who enjoys the ride and an Angora rabbit won third-place honors in Overdrive's Most Loved Pet contest.
Voted fourth place in Overdrive's Most Loved Pet contest are a miniature pinscher, a cat who makes the ride pleasant for her owner and three birds who love to ride in the truck.
