Cool Grim's new ride...

We just went last night and got a full size van. My truck's having more and more issues, and the crate space wasn't what I wanted it to be. (Not to mention my parrots) The only downside is that the window thing I got with his name and a GSD head is on my truck. I also have one on the other side for Layla. So I guess I'll have to order a couple new ones. Grim hasn't been in the new van yet. I think I can even slide his crate between the front seats and the second row of chairs so I don't have to remove the sofa. I'm going to measure it today to make sure. It will make loading and unloading SO much easier on my back, because he can come in and out the side doors without me having to lift him! It also looks about a million times better than my truck. I hope Grim is happy with it!!

I'm sure he will be happy anywhere as long as he's with you. It's always a big decision to get a new ride, but sounds like you made a good choice, especially for your back.

Lucky for Grim, and even better for the chauffeur. What no pictures to share with us, that's not fair.

Sorry, the only pics I have are from the ad right now, and they're too large for this site. I'll get some tomorrow when it's light outside. It's super nice! The outside is green at the top and it goes into tan for the lower part. The interior is a tan mixed with IDK what colors for cloth upholstery. It's not a high top, just a full size conversion van.

I should throw in here (since I openly complained about the thought of Grim chowing down money the other day) that my 'new' van cost me less than I can get out of my truck. So no loss on the deal. It's a 1995, but it's in really good condition, and has less miles than my truck. My MIL (she's just a peach plus!) helped me make this work. I didn't have working defrost and a few other things on my it just wasn't going to work to drive in the winter. She never liked it anyway, so she was happy I wanted to get a different vehicle, LOL!
