WOOF and HELLO ~ Saturday morning I put on both my pink and black skull sweaters, got my kibbles in a bag, and my toy bunny in the back-pack. I hopped right in and was ready to go see Ms. Annie in Ft. Wayne. The best thing about being a biker dog…. I don’t have to pay for the gas.
I can’t really move in my back-pack but it sure is warm. And hey, I’m a dog, so laying around is fine by me. Touring around with my head in the wind is awesome until Ursula hits about 70 mph. I don’t like hats and glasses so I have to duck inside when we’re going that fast.
We had a potty break the other day and Ursula was teasing me with a cheese stick; made me dance around for it. I tell ya, humans are so easily entertained. It was a great place to stop though. The forest preserve was full of all kinds of stuff to sniff. I really wanted to roll around in that stinky stuff I found but of course, the human would have none of that. Then again those humans take showers everyday so they clearly don’t appreciate a good stench.
Anyway, the ride to Ft. Wayne was just fine. I slept a lot which was good because when I got to Ms. Annie’s she had all sorts places in her new house to run around and sniff. She even had a cat that didn’t really like me I don’t think. I don’t know why, he never met me, he shouldn’t judge me. But … he did warm up after a while so I guess he’s ok. Maybe next time I won’t try to play with his toys, that might have ticked him off.
I think the coolest part of this ride was the covered bridge we encountered. Usually Ursula is yelling at me, “Come Back”, “Stop”, “You’ve Gone Too Far”… But this time it was a huge field and I really got to run and stretch my legs. You have no idea how hard it is to be on that motorcycle all day. I went to the water’s edge but it’s a little too cold to take a dip so I just had a little drink and figured we’d hit the road.
Today was a great day to be a biker dog. The temperature was in the upper 50’s as we headed to Louisville and I only had to wear one sweater thank goodness. I can’t stand the sweater hair after a ride. I just need a good scratching after wearing those sweaters all day. My human is great though, she always gives me a good scratch afterward; maybe she could do it longer, but hey… she’s only human!
I met Mr. Bean’re today and he’s really nice to me. He didn’t even mind that I went and made myself comfy on his sleeping bag. He won’t let me sit in his lap while he’s on the computer but I’ll wear him down – yes I will. So the humans went to some light show thing and I just sat there living the good dog life amongst stinky socks and bandanas and comfy clothes to bury myself in; bikers are messy sometimes (just sayin’).
The ride home from Louisville was beautiful. The sun was shining and I kept my head out of the back pack almost all day. Although, Ursula did put her laptop in my backpack so she could reach it easier and that cramped us both even further on space. We got to a rest area and she moved me to the back; that was great, I was able to move around. The people at the rest area were really nice and petted me while they talked to Ursula. They didn’t have any treats but they were nice all the same.
When we were just coming into home (right at 80/94) the traffic backed-up to a crawl. I was digging that because I was able to really reach my head out and stiff the air; not so easy at 80 mph ya know. Anyway, some real sweet lady in an SUV was taking pictures of me. I say, you humans are easily entertained. Like you’ve never seen a poodle in a backpack on a Harley. 🙂 But seriously, the lady was really sweet and Ursula yelled out the web address for www.hdbroad.com and asked if she’d send the picture. The nice lady was Ms. Kelly, and she did in fact send the picture. We’re not real sure where Ms. Kelly and the gentleman were headed, but we wish them a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you Ms. Kelly, where ever you are!!
Until the next adventure….
Wishing you bushy tail squirrels, warm sun on your snout, and scratches that feel like Heaven.
