Leonard was on automatic until he met Whispers. Luke didn't want a partner then he met Traveler
Whispers, an awesome German Shepherd and Traveler, his amazing great grandson change the lives of two men.
Luke Jenson had two brothers. One was a lawyer, the other a doctor. Luke's father, Robert, a long haul truck driver, told Luke to choose a profession and he would pay for his education. Luke told his dad he wanted to be a long haul truck driver. Robert tried to talk him out of it, to no avail. Finally he agreed to teach Luke to drive. After a long apprenticeship, Robert made Luke his partner. A few years later Robert passed away. Luke elected to continue trucking alone. On afternoon, half way up Mount Eagle, in central Tennessee, Luke saw a near-dead German Shepherd on the shoulder of the interstate, struggling to reach the top. Without think he pulled the rig over, carried the exhausted dog to the truck, and delivered him to nearest vet. A few weeks later, Traveler, the great great grandson of Whispers became Luke's partner.
Ultimately, through the most unlikely event, Luke and Jake meet.
