Life Through the Windshield

The life of a trucker

Truck Driver/Lease Operator
Where do you start with something like this. I'm your typical white male. I'm married, for the third time. I have 9 kids and 4 grandchildren. Currently I'm an OTR truck driver. I've been doing it for the past year and a half, but I've had several careers. This one is just the latest. In the past I've tried selling cars. That didn't last long. I should say it didn't take me very long to figure out that I'm to honest to sell cars. I've spent lots of years in the restaurant business. Most of that was in the pizza business either as a manager for other or for myself. I also spent 8 years in the Air Force working in ER's and flying Aeromedical Evacuation. I have to say, the biggest mistake I've ever made was getting out. Anything else you want to know, just ask. I'll tell you.

I abuse my dog

Rate: 11 Flag

I'm sorry.  I just read LadyMiko's post about PETA and watched the Penn and Teller's video and I have to make amends for abusing my dog.


Warning, these photos are graphic in nature.


Here is Neena, named after that bitch at Petsmart who gave her a bath, the day I found her.  She was so covered with fleas who were doing what they should be doing.  Sucking the blood out of her.  Yes, I killed all those 1000's of fleas.




I know I should turn her out on the street.  Keeping her hostage in my truck is such a cruel thing.  I hope she will forgive me.




I do let her out of the truck when we go home.  But I live on a farm.  What could a puppy find to do?  Maybe she should do us both a favor and run off and save herself.




And with grandkids at home.  They just chase her and are so mean, I think maybe somebody should call her a lawyer.  Don't animals have rights now?

And now she is getting bigger and there is just nothing for her to do.




Shouldn't she be running wild and free?  I mean her mother was running wild and free when she left her baby laying beside my truck to fend for herself at 3 weeks of age.  Shouldn't she be sleeping under the stars or something?




Who would want to just lay around all day and do nothing?




My kids got to bring their toys to bed and they had snuggley blankets to lay in.  Maybe that is what she needs.




She doesn't even have her own bed.  Look, here she is sleeping with my 16 year old son.  You know how boys are with their dogs.  Their best friend.  The one they tell all their secrets to.




PETA is right.  Tomorrow when I hit the road, I'm just going to leave her in this parking lot.  When she chases my truck down the street, I'm not even going to look back at her.  She will understand it's for her own good.

Thank goodness you are coming to your senses. Tears filled my eyes looking at these photos. I'm surprised you had the gumption to post them!
now that is one spoiled puppy, you done good with her Catnlion
This made me SQUEAK! Those photos are PRICELESS and so is that baby! The picture of her with her toy in bed says it all!!!!!

She's HOME! (Give that girl TONS of hugs for me!)

You don't have to worry about how much she gets loved on. It never stops. If she thinks that it's been to long since I have rubbed her ears, she just sticks them under my hand.

I'll give her one of those special muzzle rubs she is so fond of for you.

I love my dog just the way she is. That doesn't mean that in some places in the world they don't love their dogs with a little BBQ sauce.


People Eating Taste Animals
I'm completely in love with this dog. That's all.

And she would love you too.

Just think of all the water you would save. By the time she quit licking you, you wouldn't have to take a bath for a week.

I'm so lucky we found each other.
I had a cat who was born a barn cat and rescued from drowning as a kitten. She hated being an indoor cat and howled to be let out. She peed on my furniture if she wasn't let out (and yes, she used her litterbox happily when she was happy, as in tired from her excursions)

So, I let her out. She ran wild, had constant intestinal bugs from the rodents she vastly preferred to Whiskas. She disappeared one day, before she was a year old. That's the fate of the cat allowed to run free -- death before their first birthday.

There are a lot of street dogs here. They survive the winter with help from people. Although I presume some freeze to death every year. In Bulgaria, the street dogs roamed in packs and struck terror in the hearts of small kids (and sometimes adults). They were not vaccinated against rabies and sometimes bit people.

I ask you, what is better?
Umbrellakinesis, I'm glad you like my baby. Now if I could just get her to roll over so I can get back in bed. She is more of a bed hog than my wife.

I agree. Yes there are people who own pets who shouldn't, but there are people who have kids who shouldn't.

With the packs in the streets, does the city even try to control them? While I would love to see them all caught and placed in good homes, I realize that is not possible, neither catching them or all of them being adoptable.
I want a husband like this. I think.
You mean a husband just like me?
Wonderful! If more people "abused" their animals like you do, those animals would be much happier. Love the photos. Give her a belly rub from me.
Lisa, she said to lick your face for the belly rub. Would it be wrong to lie to her and tell her I did?
I looked up the PETA website - lots of stuff about spaying/neutering, and anti pet stores/breeders, but they're also encouraging people to adopt from shelters. Your post is a good answer to the radical quotes that LadyMiko mentions - this is one happy, happy dog. My favorite pic here - the dog curled up asleep with your teenage son! That is a precious shot.

Frank, my son, rode with me for about 6 weeks this summer. He had her so spoiled I could have neutered him. Being 16, that may not have been such a bad idea anyway.

I always have my animals fixed, and adopt from a shelter, or in most cases like this one, just get found.

I have no problem with most of PETA's stuff. I have a problem with some of the ways they get their message out, unhappy meals, and the people they support, ALF. The one thing that really frosted my goat was watching someone tell me that I shouldn't eat meat or use animal products while wearing a leather belt. Even if it was fake leather, it looked real. You couldn't tell the difference on TV. It sends the wrong message at the minimum. How can you support a product pitchman when he appears to be doing what he is telling you not to do?

I gave her an ear rub for you. The left one, it's her favorite.
You're a cruel, hard-hearted person making life so difficult for that poor, neglected, ill-treated and miserable pooch.

A shame there aren't more people in the world as abusive as you. God bless you and Neena. Lovely post.
The abuse you heaped on my eyes this morning is well...the nicest think to have gotten to feast my eyes on to begin my day! Lovely, thank you.
What the fuck is wrong with you people? Instead of leaving the poor dog to die why didn't you take it to an animal rescue centre? Dogs trust? RSPCA? PINOV all these centres specialise in taking good care in dogs and or cats, the RSPCA specialise in every animal from a guinea pig to a horse, who knows what happend to the poor dog, you left it to starve? At least at the care centres they are free to eat drink sleep play run around its a dogs dream, you need to take a good look at your self MR
