Stupid Cars and Socialization
 
First off rant: My stupid car broke again today. Husband just fixed one expensive problem last weekend and now another one crops up. :mad: I really hate cars! Drove there just fine. Put it in park and wouldn't come back out of park. Grrrr.... :angryfire:

Ok rant out of the way...

Be sure to socialize your puppy with tow trucks. We were out visiting Tractor Supply socializing my pup Dude when car broke down. Thank goodness for a sweet tow truck driver who let me bring my puppy with me.

Dude, however, was not impressed with the tow truck. Scared him to death and this was the result. Dang gotta remember to cut puppy nails!

Was your car parked on a flat? Sometimes they'll bind up from pressure of being parked on a hill or the drive wheels being pressed up against a wheel stop.

No it was flat. Dealer tells me its a break shifter and a sensor control or something like that. :( $600+ later it should be ready tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks! My older dogs are not fond of Garbage Trucks or the Schwans Truck that comes by either.

They might not be a fan of the Schwanns truck, but I sure am.

Sorry about your car. We have a towing business and I'd say that driver was extremely nice, you should give him a positive yelp review! Oddly, we've seldom encounter tows with dogs, a few times we'd had them stay in the vehicle, but the other scenarios are sad because law enforcement is involved and they call out animal control before we tow.

When I called in Triple A I made sure to tell them I had a dog with me and asked if would be a problem, so I could make other arrangements if needed to pick us up. Thankfully they said not a problem and tow truck driver was very nice and gracious about it. I will for sure give him a positive review with Triple A. :)

Oh no....sorry about your car. We are having similar issues with our heat and air....fix one problem and bang another pops up. It sucks sometimes being an adult.

I have been slowly introducing Abby to the trash truck....she does not like it much....but the guys in the truck she really likes.....they get out and say hi ever time.
