Truckin Along With Kearse's Comment

Quite a few of us have pet along for the ride. Tells us about them.

Please post a picture of your pet, it's name and age and how the animal adjusted to life on the road

My cat is Goofball. He was 10 years old when I brought him in the truck he is now 14. He loves the truck and hates when I take him to hotels or even to my Mom's. He sometimes cries until I return him to the truck. And he was not happy the first time we switched trucks. He sniffed all ovee and meowed then layed down. But it was with one eye open..."Lady you didnt, but this is acceptable".

People said he would get sick and not use his box, but he loves it.

In the picture below he is saying "Hey woman, you went and showered and didnt leave my canned food... just this dry stuff. Geesh"

This is Jammer. He'll be 7 years old this coming August and I've had him since he was just a tiny little thing! I got him from a lady who was giving away a litter of puppies on Craigslist, and we've been best friends ever since. As soon as Swift announced their new pet policy a year and a half ago, I brought him on the truck. He's always loved going for car rides, so I wasn't too worried about the adjustment. From day one he loved it! Now when we go home, he's ready to get back in the truck the minute it's time for us to go back on the road lol.


This is Sabrina! Her story is a little different. Due to some unfortunate circumstances with my sister, my 8 year old niece lives with my grandmother. Last year she wanted a puppy more than anything. She said that she would give up all of her Christmas presents for a puppy lol. So I decided to surprise her. When I got home the day before Thanksgiving last year, I picked my niece up, and we went to an animal rescue center that I had found near us, and adopted little 14 week old Sabrina!


Unfortunately, we soon learned that my niece is allergic to dogs. It was tough, but we knew she couldn't stay there. I wasn't going to give her back. That would have been too unfair to her. So I went home for Christmas, and headed back out with both Sabrina and Jammer sitting in the passenger seat!

I was worried about how she would adjust, but she took to it right away and now she loves it just as much as Jammer!


I was also worried about how Jammer would take to having a new puppy with us. I was worried about him being overly protective of his food and his toys. And him trying to prove he's the "Alpha"......


It didn't take long for me to realize that wasn't going to be a problem!

Chris, I heartily agree with G-Town. Great story, great pics! I especially like the last pic of the dogs together. Almost looks like one dog with two heads, lol.

Heres my co-driver. Took this today while she was sleeping. Daisy is about 6 months old now and growing into her paws, really smart dog and excellent partner on the road.

Matthew, funny how dogs can sleep while contorted into awkward positions. I think she might have sleep apnea. You should get a sleep study done on her. Then you can get her a CPUP machine.

You think my company will help cover the costs of the test and machine?

This is the closest I come to a truck pet. He hangs out on my dash, leading the way. I rescued him from a geocache at a truck stop in the Rockies right after I first started driving.

They will if she is your co-driver.
