Biking with Dogs

I’ve been thinking about getting a bicycle to take Moss running. I almost can’t tire him out now with just two frisbees. I’d have to get an attachment to keep him over to the side unless he takes to running in front. I’d like to let him pull. It’s great exercise.

I looking into some attachments and did a review of them HERE.

I would like to take Doc with us too, but he couldn’t run with his bad leg. He’d have to go in a trailer. That’s more money, but I’d like to try it for him.

Naturally I wrote about trailers too HERE.

If you’re thinking about biking with your dog, you might want to read up on it.

What is an Animal Hoarder?

This past summer there were several cases of animal hoarding nearby.I don’t know all the psychological issues of an animal hoarder, but I had a neighbor once who was pretty close.

I wrote  Recognizing an Animal Hoarder here.


I was on the computer, as I often am, when I heard a loud, blood-curdling scream from Moss. My first thought was “dogfight.”  I jumped up out of my chair as Moss dove into his crate. He hadn’t been anywhere near Doc. When I investigated, sure enough, there was a cut in the cord going to the box fan that is sitting on the floor. It was on.

He has always had a thing for electrical cords. He has chewed several that were just laying around. He has managed to drag cords into his crate that I thought he couldn’t reach.  He has destroyed one extension cord and my headphones. I don’t always see it until later. He’s very quiet when he’s doing something he is not supposed to.

He looked quite frightened this time. I’m so glad he wasn’t hurt worse. I hope he remembers this the next time he is tempted.
