Rick finally got the obnoxious asshole truck that everyone else has in this state. At least he genuinely needs a truck for his business. I felt that Harlan was an appropriate name for the obnoxious asshole truck. Harlan got the immediate stamp of approval from Jayne, who thinks it’s a fine ride indeed, what with him getting a whole seat to  himself. Oh, for those who can’t resist the name thing, before Harlan, we had two Fords and two Chevys. Now it’s three Chevys and two Fords. :)

    Jayne’s very pleased, and surprised us both by taking to Harlan immediately. A lot of that, I think, is his not wanting to be left alone anymore.

    Oh hooray! I was worried about Jayne not wanting to get into the truck, weirdly enough, so this is very cool. GOOD DOG! SMART DOG!

    Kestrel, you weren’t alone, I was concerned too! Especially as I had to trick Jayne into a vehicle when he first came to us, he wanted nothing to do with it. I set up a strategy with Rick for when he went home, then said “he’ll probably surprise me and get right in.” Rick went home, got Jayne, and he ran straight out, pissed on a tire, and jumped right in when Rick opened the back door for him. Go figure.

    I’ll pass the praise on. :D

    My dogs used to love my farm truck because it had a bench seat, which meant that they could try to climb into my lap while I was driving. Which was problematic since they weighed 150lb -- each.

    Jayne looks happy!

    Needs a shotgun rack with a cricket bat in it. :D
