Our New Ride

Back in August while my brother was visiting for my birthday, he convinced me it was time to say goodbye to my old car.

Honestly, I was hesitant at first. The Impala was, after all, only nearly 16 years old. She holds more great memories than bad ones; and with the exception of some minor issues, I was okay with keeping her until she couldn’t go any further.

The bad memories, though, are the heartbreakers that I can’t deal with any more. Like taking Callie, Shadow, and Radar to the vet for their final visits/journeys to the Rainbow Bridge. And taking Bogie to the vet after his horrific accident so he could be given dignified aftercare. And taking Ducky to the vet the morning after she left me. And the difficult times of dealing with hubby’s dementia demons in the car. So it was time to let go.

So, it’s time to introduce my new ride – Zen and Zoey’s new taxi – our 2022 Honda CR-V, lovingly named in honor of my canine soulmate. Here’s Ducky2 …..


Although Callie, Shadow and Radar loved riding in the car too, Ducky loved it most of all. (Bogie used to get nervous in the back seat by himself.)

My New Ride

Yes, that’s the Impala next to Ducky2. I haven’t officially sold her yet.

    Very nice. Love the new car, but I would have liked to have seen a better photograph of the Impala since I don’t know what that is. However, I wish you and all who travel with you, present and in spirit, a ride in style in the new wheels.

      Thank you!! I love it, too!! It’s a much smoother ride than the Impala has been for the last several years. I’m just still getting used to the different sounds it makes as I drive along…not loud or abnormal ones, just different from the Impala. 😊

      Thank you!! Actually, the minor issues were with the actuator door behind the dashboard, and alert lights coming on and going off; but you’re right – we will be safer in Ducky2. ❤️🐾
