Furry Friend Friday With Daisy!


We’re back with another cutie to make your Friday afternoon that much better!  Meet Daisy, she’s certainly as cute as a daisy if you ask us!  This little girl is a 2 year-old hound mix up for adoption at the Sterling Animal Shelter and has been there for about a month now, so she’s been waiting a while for the perfect family!

So Daisy, what do you like to do for fun?

I’m just your typical pup, I like the simple things like long walks where I can take in the smells and sounds of the great outdoors, playing ball, and hanging out with my favorite people.  I’m very affectionate and love getting extra attention and belly rubs!

Do you have a favorite toy you like to play with?

I’d have to say my ball, I love chasing it and it’s so bouncy!  Like I said, I’m pretty simple and can be happy doing just about anything.

Is there anything that you’re afraid of?

Nope!  There isn’t much that can make this girl nervous, my previous owners thought that I was a little nervous around men, but I haven’t been afraid of any of the men I’ve met here at the shelter.

What do you think would be the perfect family for you?

Well, if I could choose, I would love to go to a home with people that would take me on a lot of walks!  I would say I have a medium activity level, so I’m not very hyper but I still like to be out and about whenever possible.  Other than that, I would say I would do best in an adult-only home, it’s not that I don’t like kids, just because of my size I wouldn’t want to accidentally knock them over or anything.  The other thing is that I would be best as an only pet, I don’t really get along with cats, come on, can you blame me?  When it comes to other dogs I don’t mind them but I would still prefer to be the only pet so I can have all of the attention!

So Daisy, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well I know I’m young, and I’ve been lucky enough to be healthy and accident-free so far, but other pets aren’t as lucky.  Some pets can eat the wrong thing, or come down with an ear infection, there are tons of different things that can land your furry friend in the vet’s office, and land you with a huge bill.  Pet insurance sounds like a good way to prevent a giant, unexpected vet bill that will drain your savings account.

For such a young girl, Daisy sure is smart, and adorable of course!  We know she’ll find her forever family soon, but she makes a great point about pet insurance.  No one wants a huge vet bill because their pet accidentally ate a chocolate bar or came down with an illness, so call one of our agents today for a free quote and find out exactly how affordable pet insurance can be!




Furry Friend Friday With Skul!


Happy Furry Friend Friday!  Today we have a very special guest, a 7-year-old greyhound girl named Skul.  We know, kind of an intimidating name for such a sweet girl, but trust us when we say there’s nothing scary about her!  She’s currently up for adoption at Greyhound Friends, Inc in Hopkinton and would love for you to pay her a visit!

So Skul, I hear that you’re not originally from Massachusetts, is that right?

Yes!  In fact, I’m a mid-western girl, I came all the way from Kansas!  It’s very different out here, there are so many new things to try and see and so far I’m loving it!  I’m so excited to be here and hopefully find my forever family soon!

What’s your favorite way to spend the day?

I love being outside, we have a fenced in yard that I can run around in, and I get  to play with the other dogs and toys here!  I’m very lucky, and after all that I love being around the people here, they’re so nice and love to pet me!

Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

It’s hard to choose when there are so many options!  If I really have to choose though, I’d say my favorite types of toys are the squeaky, stuffed animal ones.  What dog doesn’t like those?

Is there anything that scares you?

I’d say I’m a pretty self-confident dog, there’s really not much that gets to me except for loud traffic noises.  You know, like horns, sirens, things like that.  Coming from Kansas, I’m not used to hearing those things so often, so sometimes they make me jump a little.

What do you think would  be the perfect family for you?

I really am a people lover, and I would be good with all ages and types of them!  I’m even great with other dogs, not sure about cats yet though.  My only request is to have a fenced-in yard so I can be free to run around as I please.  Even though I’m 7, I’m still a fairly active girl but not overwhelming.  I would just love to find a family that wants me as one of their own, I hope it happens soon because I’m great on walks and the best snuggler you’ll ever meet!

So Skul, why do you think pet insurance is a good thing for all pet parents to consider?

Well, pets can get hurt just like people can, and our doctor’s office can be just as expensive as yours!  Pet insurance seems like a smart way to make sure you don’t have to pay a giant vet bill if your pet were to ever unexpectedly get sick or hurt, and lets face it, are those things ever expected?  No, they’re not, but with pet insurance at least you can be prepared for them!

Skul’s right, if your pet gets sick or has an accident, you never see it coming, but with pet insurance you can be prepared for these things.  It’s a great way to make sure your furry friend can get exactly what they need without you having to worry how much it will cost.  Call one of our agents today for a free pet insurance quote!



Furry Friend Friday With Meatball!

Here at MassDrive we love our pets, from time to time they even stop by the office for a visit! That’s why we have decided to begin a series of blog postings called Furry Friend Friday!  This week I was able to sit down with my own furry friend, Meatball.  You may recognize him from some of the MassDrive videos we have posted as his picture can be seen in the background of many shots.  I had a few questions for Meatball and he was gracious enough to take some time from his busy schedule to sit down with me.

What is your favorite way to spend the day?

Personally I’m a bit of a couch potato, I could lounge around on the couch all day if I had the choice.  Don’t get me wrong though, I still like to get out and about in the fresh air from time to time.

Where is your favorite place to go for a walk?

Don’t let my looks fool you, even though I’m a senior citizen I love to go to the beach and hit the ground running!  There’s something about feeling the sand between my toes that makes me feel young again.

I know you are a fan of treats, but out of all of your options what would you say is your favorite kind?

There are so many options, how can I pick one? I’ll eat pretty much anything, but my all time favorite treat is something with peanut butter flavoring!  Of course nothing compares to people food, but I don’t get to have it that often sadly enough.

What would you say is your biggest fear?

Two words; THE VET!  As if having to ride in the car isn’t bad enough, sometimes when I get out we are at the dreaded vet’s office!  I’m not being a baby either, have you seen how they take my temperature?!  The floor is slippery, the smells always get to me, and to top it off there’s usually some young pup jumping all over me!  Unfortunately I’ve had to go a little more often than usual lately, just typical aches and pains but it is always traumatizing!

What is your biggest health concern for the future?

As a lab mix I am prone to issues with my hips, they already bother me a bit but the hip and joint supplements that I take are a big help.  Other than that my biggest concern is anything that would bring me to the vet’s office!

Meatball is a perfect example of why pet owner’s should get insurance for their furry friends.  Having an insurance policy for your pet is relatively inexpensive,  and can save you hundreds of dollars should you have to make a visit to the vet.  Call up one of our representatives today or click MassDrive for a quote!
