“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
Hunter S. Thompson
"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend."
I hope the top photo of Chevy in the Chevy was mocked up after he was rescued and given water and shade. And not taken straightaway upon his initial discovery.
DOG SURVIVES 110-MILE RIDE IN TRUCK ENGINE - “A 25-pound dog discovered in the engine compartment of a Chevrolet Silverado in San Clemente on Monday is doing fine, said to have survived a 110-mile journey on a hot autumn Southern California day with no apparent ill effects.”
Despite traveling 110 miles next to a running engine on a hot day, a dog miraculously survived unharmed and in good health. The dog, nicknamed “Chevy,” appears to be a Keeshond. It is not known how Chevy ended up under the hood. In the meantime, he is receiving care at the San Clemente/Dana Point Animal Shelter and may be put up for adoption if he is not claimed.

He said he had no idea a dog was with him during a trip in his company vehicle from Chino to Orange to Camp Pendleton to San Clemente. When he stopped at McDonald’s in San Clemente for lunch and turned off the ignition, he could still feel movement in the truck. Getting out, he said he could see fur protruding above the left front tire. He feared for the worst. “I didn’t want to look under the hood,” he said. But he did, and he was ecstatic to find the Keeshond in one piece, alive and seemingly healthy…
…he gently pulled the dog out, dialed 911 and gave it water. “Between the engine and the front there is a big gap and that is what saved him,” Magaña said. “I don’t understand how it survived at this temperature with the engine running. It doesn’t make any sense. And the dog has nothing (wrong), no problem. It’s in one piece. This is amazing. This will never happen again in my life.”
This could have ended badly, but somehow Chevy survived the long and strange trip. Hopefully he finds a better place to rest soon. Click here for the full story.
