Words by Olivia Z. | As told by GUNNER

Sutton and I were traveling downhill and the two right lanes merged into one. There was an SUV right next to me, and a car directly behind them – they didn’t anticipate the lane change and sped up abruptly. They cut me off, and as soon as they did, they hit the front of my car going 45–50mph. After they hit me, they spun out in a way that seemed like slow motion. Thankfully we both came to a stop before sliding into other vehicles in the adjacent lane.

As soon as we came to a stop I ran back to check on my dog, Sutton. I was crying and scared, but as soon as I got her out of the GUNNER kennel I felt instant relief. She was simply happy to see me and did not have a scratch on her. The kennel did exactly what it was supposed to do and I am so thankful for it. 

I originally purchased this kennel because I began having nightmares about getting into wrecks with Sutton. She has ridden in the car since she was a puppy and I just knew that I had to get something safer for the both of us. I ended up getting a bigger, safer Volvo SUV and if I am secure and safe, then my dog should be too. So I got a GUNNER Kennel too, and clearly, I’m so thankful I did.

I believed the kennel was worth the investment before the accident, and now I am even more sure of it. Even though I didn’t have it tied down in the cargo area, the kennel did exactly what it was supposed to. I even added GUNNER’s personalized nameplate so first responders would know her name if I ever got in that situation. It wasn’t needed in this accident, but it has put me at ease in case anything happens in the future. 

Everyone ended up being ok but it could have been so much worse. We were going downhill at 45-50mph, with oncoming traffic in the other lane. Thank you, GUNNER, for keeping my pup safe.
