Today was an especially fun ride for two reasons. The first is that my dog has shown some apparent husky blood, when, during a speed sprint, he grabbed the leash between his teeth and took off running. Since he was running fairly straight, and there were no obstacles in our path, I just let off the brakes and enjoyed the ride. And let me tell you...that was FUN.
The second giggle was when I was dubbed a "meanie fat-a**," by a four-year-old, to whom I had just (politely) denied permission to pet my dog. For one thing, we were traveling down a hill at a fairly high rate of speed. For another, my exuberant, seventy pound shepherd would have flattened her into a little blonde pancake in his excitement. Sorry, chiquita, you gotta be at least 4' to ride the Siriusmobile.
