Snowtoes "Lacey" Hemerson is a road dog if there ever was one. Not only does this pure bred pupper have over a million miles on the road, she participated in the Trucker Buddy program for ten years! The program matches truckers with classrooms for pen-pallery, and the beagle has even called into "The Dave Nemo Show" from a classroom visit so Dave could hear from the students and teacher. At 15 years young, who knows what Lacey will do next! Here she is, the epitome of cool--and I mean that both ways. Keep those toes warm, girl!
When he was just two weeks old, Boddie Bear already had a name and a owner waiting to waiting to love him furever. The beautiful border collie gets his name from Dog Walker's friend, Diane. She trained dogs, and Dog Walker was blown away by one whip smart client named Bo. Bo + "D" for Diane = Boddie, and the Bear comes from the way his coat shimmers when he moves. Boddie Bear came to fill an emptiness left by a previous border collie, and to be everyone's friend. He's the perfect family dog. And he seems to be good at lawn care, too.
This pair proves that pretty eyes, flattery, and product placement will get you far. Wolfie the cat has been running the house and ruling the roost for 15 years. And that suits Boomer just fine, because he'd much rather be where he's been the last 9 years--on the road with Roberta. Boomer's just the travelin' type. And that suits Wolfie just fine, too!
Back in 2014, Moki's owner left him with friend, and never picked him up. After three months, Moki was facing the pound. littletrucker may have rescued Moki first, but Moki's dedicated his life to returning the favor. You see, Moki is many things--pug/English bully mix, son, co-driver, medical alert service animal, and the reason littletrucker is alive and where he is today. Three yips for Moki, who never leaves his co-driver's side!
