In fourth place are a miniature pinscher, a cat who makes the ride pleasant for her owner and three birds who love to ride in the truck.


Angel“When Angel was a young puppy, she loved riding in the truck. She spent much of that time sleeping. She goes with us everywhere we go when we travel. If she is not welcome, we do not want to go. She has brought “oooo’s” and “ahhhhh’s” as well as big smiles to peoples’ faces all over the East Coast.”

Gus, Tako and Brandy“All three love to ride in the truck. Gus Rides on the Back of my seat, until I get to a Rest Area, Shipper, Receiver or Truckstop, Then it’s down my arm to the Steering Wheel He Likes to Ride the Wheel when it’s Turning and goes WEEEEE and Ducks under my arm when it comes around. Tako rides on a Suction Cup Perch Attached to the Passenger side Window and Goes Yee Haw when we hit a Dip or a Bridge that doesn’t match the Road. Brandy Rides on My Shoulder and is Smart Enough to come down my Arm and Poop on the Paper on the Floor in between the Seats always ask What are You Doing, Tell her I’m Driving and answers Oh.”
