A Dream Come True!

As I’ve told you before, I’m a truck girl.
Even before Chevy let me test drive their beautiful Silverado, I drove a truck daily.

I’ve always had a silly little dream….
I have always wanted a dog that would ride everywhere with me in my truck.
I know…. I know….
I TOLD you it was a silly dream.
But it’s MY dream so I can dream it!

Anyway.
I have always raised big dogs.
I mean Great Dane big.
Those don’t really fit the bill for a “ride everywhere with you” kinda dog.
So… I got one that would.
I got Otis, the Boston Terrier.
I was thrilled to finally have a dog who I could take on rides with me.
The problem is…
He HATES to ride with me in the truck.
I mean, Throw-up-all-over-the-seats-you-just-cleaned-hate,
Shake-like-a-little-embarrassing-whimpy-non Texas-dog kinda hate.
Takes-medication-from-the-vet-to-calm-his-nerves-before-a-ride kinda hate.
Otis hates Hates HATES riding anywhere in the truck with me.

We got the Silverado and the strangest thing happened!

Yes… Otis goes EVERYWHERE with me!
There is no dog puke in the seats.
There is no frightened quivering.
He even hangs his head out the window!
I am in Shock!

The only thing I can figure is that this is a dog who has taste!
I’m not the only one in love with the Silverado and it’s XM Radio and I-Pod jack.

He must love the plush luxury interior as much as I do.

He must not shake because the Silverado has dual-climate controls so he can have his side of the truck set on a toasty 78 degrees while I enjoy a cool 72 degrees on my side!

Maybe he feels safer knowing that Mama doesn’t have to take her hands off the steering wheel when the phone rings because of the Silverados built-in Blue tooth capabilities.

Whatever the reason… Otis is Happy!
and yep…. My dream has come true!!

The Silverado continues to exceed my expectations! Even when I’m not looking for it!
Thanks Chevy!

DISCLOSURE: The Chevy Weekend Warriors Program is sponsored by Houston Area Chevy Dealers who are providing me with a Chevy Silverado to drive for a month as I blog about my own experiences. I was also provided with gift cards to complete missions I take in the truck. These are my own honest opinions.
