Dogs Love...Scooters?


Let me start by saying that I didn't take the photograph above. This was courtesy of newsday.com. I did see something similar today, however, and it cracked me up. A woman on a Vino had her chihuahua in a front-loading baby harness. The little fella had his own goggles, which seemed to fit his chi-chi head pretty well. One of those times I wish I had the camera bag on the seat hook! I guess I was on the fence about whether that was a good idea or not, carrying the dog while riding. Sorta like people that let their dogs run loose (or worse, chained at the neck) in the bed of their pickup trucks. On one hand, the dog loves it. On the other, I can't imagine it is very safe for the dog. Agree? Disagree? And what's the weirdest thing you've seen on two wheels?

You need to read Oasis of My Soul.Ara and Spirit have been touring the US taking incredible pictures using a BMW GS with a sidecar. I think Spirit likes that a lot more than being chained and beaten (not by Ara!).

thumbs up for: Oasis of my soul

http://theoasisofmysoul.com/

it was his blog that made me travel to Hell's Canyon earlier this year, sort of following in his footsteps. I also recognize some of his pictures from the Escalante area (Utah/Arizona) where we went a year or so ago. You will see some pictures of Spirit wearing his googles too
