I am much less stressed and more focused since I started driving with Frank, says Joe Mansheim. He says his duck companion Frank is quite lovable and when Frank starts quacking it is hard to stay irritated.
Like English author John Donne said ”No man is an island entire of itself, every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main”, everyone relies on others, we all need a company to talk to laugh to feel safe. Pets are family for truck drivers a piece from home, someone to trust to give them comfort when they need to.
Every day more truck drivers requests for pet ownership because trucking is a less lonely job when you have a pet companion with you.
Taking care of your four-legged friend makes you closer to everyday obligations at home, that pet depends on you like your children’s do, you raise them to be taught, you always there for them as they are for you.
Truck driving can be a lonely venture but bringing a pet along for the ride changes everything. It can be a lot of fun but also a lot of work, but remember in this long-term relationship once you make it through the basics you have a best friend for live to travel with.
