    This is my dog Lucy. She’s a five-year-old Bichon that rides in my tow truck with me. She even has her name on her side of the truck. She has her own little booster seat and people love to wave at her. She’s four pounds of daily entertainment. She loves greeting customers and drivers bring her treats throughout the day.
