Rowe's Welsh Pembroke Corgi, Bentley, and 15 other nalists received a free pet wash courtesy of Iowa 80.

"His aviator out t (pictured) and bi-plane I made for a Halloween party for Corgis." Bentley's had a ton of energy since he was a pup, "always get- ting into trouble" then, Rowe says, though his behavior generally has improved with time and direction toward outdoors rodents. His favorite activity, outside of posing as an aviator, is running "outside to chase squirrels, and when he can't go out, he likes to spend his time looking out the win- dow barking at them." As for Rowe, behind the wheel with a CDL for 13 years, he'd "love to take him in the truck when I do runs," but he's not permitted to. e annual Trucker Talent Search singing competition produced by Overdrive and Red Eye Radio is back for its sixth year.
