Furry Friend Friday With Lincoln!


Ready for a Furry Friend Friday interview?  Lincoln has been excited for his turn in the spotlight all week!  This 6 year-old boy is energetic, friendly, and ready for his forever home.  He’s currently up for adoption at the Scituate Animal Shelter and has been there for about a month.  If you think Lincoln could be your new best friend pay him a visit!

So Lincoln, what’s your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I’m very energetic, so I love to stay active.  I like playing outside, going for walks, exploring the great outdoors, and just trying anything fun, I’m very adventurous! You might think that because of my age I might start to slow down at this point, but not me.  I’m still young at heart and am willing to prove it!  Stop by and pay me a visit and you’ll see what I mean!

Do you have a favorite toy to play with?

I absolutely love to chase balls!  I’d have to say those are my favorite toys, they’re so versatile, they can bounce, roll, or get thrown.  They’re basically a jack of all trades compared to other toys.

What about a favorite place to walk?

We’re very lucky here at the shelter, we have a ton of volunteers that come to walk us every day.  They bring us outside to these fields next to a bunch of woods and I love it there.  I get to smell the breeze, and become one with nature, it’s the best.

Is there anything that scares you?

Nope, I’m not afraid of anything, at least nothing comes to mind right away.  Beagles are a pretty tough dogs, we don’t scare too easy and make great watch dogs.

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

Well I love all adults, so I would be great in a home with an active couple, or even a family with older children.  I love playing with kids, but would probably be better with bigger ones that are 10 and up.  I also get along great with my fellow canines, so if you already have a dog I’m sure we would become friends right away!

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

Not only are beagles tough, we’re smart too, and I can spot a good deal when I see one!  Pet insurance seems smart to me because it’s inevitable that any pet will need to go to the vet, and if something’s wrong with us, the bill will be pretty big if you don’t have pet insurance.

Lincoln is right, inevitably most pets will have to go to the vet because they’re having a health issue or had an accident that injured them.  The bills associated with injuries and illnesses can climb pretty high pretty fast, but pet insurance will allow you to make a small payment each month so that your pet can be covered if they need to go to the vet, and you won’t need to break the bank.  Call one of our agents today for a free quote and take the first step on the road to protecting your furry friend!






Furry Friend Friday With Transy


Who’s ready to kick off their weekend with a Furry Friend Friday interview? Transy is!  This handsome older gentleman is a beagle mix and is ready to find a best friend to share his golden years with.  He’s about 7 or 8 years old and is up for adoption at Greyhound Friends, Inc in Hopkinton.  How can you resist that face?  Stop by and pay Transy a visit if you think you two could be a match made in heaven.

So Transy, what’s your favorite thing to do?

Well I love to sleep!  Does that surprise you?  I’m an older gentleman so I need more sleep than pups do.  Did you know that some dogs need up to 13 hours of sleep a day?  I think I may fall into that category.

Do you like to go for walks?

Yes I love getting out and about!  Despite my age I still have a good amount of energy, when I’m awake, that is.  I can’t go too far, I prefer my walks to be short and sweet but I still love smelling the fresh air.

Do you have a favorite treat?

I enjoy your good old classic milk bones.  They can’t be beat if you ask me, that’s probably why they’ve been around for so long, I remember snacking on those when I was just a puppy!

Is there anything that scares you?

Nope, I’ve seen a good deal in my time and it takes a lot to rattle me.  I like to think of myself as a relaxed guy that goes with the flow.

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

Well I think I’m a pretty lovable dog, so I think I could really fit in anywhere!  Like I said, I go with the flow.  I probably would be best with an older couple that moves at my pace and is looking for a couch buddy.  I also get along with other dogs and am good with dog-savvy children.  I would probably even enjoy the company of a cat!

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

Well like I said, I’ve seen a lot in my time, including friends of mine who suffered some serious injuries, even while they were in their prime.  You never know what can happen with a pet whether they are young or old, so it’s probably a good idea to be prepared for anything.

We couldn’t agree with Transy more.  He is clearly a very smart boy and understands the value of being prepared to get your pet the best possible care should they need it.  We here at MassDrive want you to be prepared too, call one of our agents for a free pet insurance quote and begin the journey to protecting your furry friend and your wallet!


Furry Friend Friday With Bolt!


We’re back with another Furry Friend Friday interview! Today I got to chat with Bolt, a 7 year old beagle up for adoption through Greyhound Friends, Inc under their “Hound Friends” section.  Bolt is a quiet older gentleman that came to Massachusetts all the way from Kentucky!  He’s looking for a quiet forever home where he can enjoy his golden years.

So Bolt, what is your favorite way to spend the day?

Well I’m pretty quiet so I like to lounge around and watch the world go by from a comfy spot inside.  I do like to go out for walks though, but in general I am pretty laid back.  I can be a little shy around new people, but once I get to know someone I love to spend time with them and cuddle, I’m a big love bug!

 That sounds fun, do you have a favorite place to go for a walk when you do go out?

Well the kennels are near a few acres of land so I love going out near the tree line, the woods are my favorite!  As a beagle, I have a very strong sense of smell and can track for miles.  The woods have so many different sights and smells, I love it and I love going with Ruthie, she’s another hound here at the kennel and is my best friend, but I get along with everyone here.

Do you have a favorite treat that you like to snack on?

The original Milkbones are my favorite by far,  can’t go wrong with the classic!

Is there anything you’re afraid of?

Well loud noises make me very nervous.  Traffic is a good example, I can’t stand the sound of those car horns!

Bolt, why would you recommend pet insurance to all pet owners?

Well life has a lot of unexpected twists and turns.  After being in a home for years, I never thought my owner would move to Hawaii and leave me behind, but it’s just another one of life’s unexpected occurrences.  I like to believe everything happens for a reason and now I’m here in Massachusetts waiting to start my new life!  Never in a million years would I have ever dreamed of leaving the south, so who knows what else could happen down the line.  All pet parents should be prepared for anything, especially health-related!

Bolt is right!  Life does have a lot of unexpected twists and turns, and accidents or illnesses aren’t usually something you plan on.  Protect your furry friend and call us at MassDrive for a pet insurance quote today! If you are interested in adopting Bolt, contact Greyhound Friends, Inc.  They are also hosting their annual Open House this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday from 12-4 PM where you will get a chance to meet Bolt as well as many other great dogs up for adoption, and even a few Patriots players!
