    Update on site issues: (1. replies now need a title *and* something in the message box, 2. certain links are causing strange pop-ups on Apple devices, and 3. Some folks can't type anything into the text box.) Basically, a series of unfortunate events set us back on testing. We'll get to it as soon as we can, and hopefully things can get fixed by this weekend if not before.  More info: https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/site-problems-more-info/

    OnStar Helps Furry Friend Find Forever Home

    About a year and a half ago, John Chavarria and his partner began rescuing dachshunds — more than 20 dogs so far. “I don’t charge for the adoptions,” says John, “I just want to find them a good home.”

    Late on a recent Sunday night, John received a text saying a dachshund was in a “bad situation.” Apparently, the novelty had worn off and the owners no longer wanted the dog. So John did what he always does: He had OnStar run a diagnostic check1 on his 2013 Chevrolet Cruze and got on the road. “I use OnStar a lot,” he laughs. One day though, he says a diagnostic check saved him money.
    “It said I had a cooling element problem. Here in Texas, if you don’t have air conditioning, it would be pretty hot really quickly.” Thankfully, he discovered the problem before the AC went out. “I definitely get my money’s worth with OnStar.”

    Once he got out on the road, John says the hour-and-a-half drive to Round Rock, Texas, near Austin, was uneventful. He picked up Oscar the dachshund, who was a little shy, and headed home. But on the return trip, John hit something, blowing out a tire.

    Despite the late hour, John wasn’t worried. “I have OnStar,” he says. “I hit the red button and in less than 20 minutes someone was at my car.”2
