My Dog Piper

There is nothing like a fury companion. After I lost Saedee I wasn't sure if I would ever be able to have another dog. Finally a little over a year ago I decided I was ready. If you have read my previous posts you know that we decided on a shelter dog. In the end it didn't work out and I was scared of the dog that we were trying to make our friend and so we had to surrender her again. A few months later I decided I wanted to pick a dog all on my own, no out side influences ie, my hubby. After researching I decided on a Westie. I am so glad of my choice.

She can be so rotten but you have to love that face. She is kind and so protective of the kids. She is a great FAMILY dog and I love that.

This is how tolerant she is. She had hurt her leg somehow and wouldn't walk on it. I thought for sure that we were going to the vet in the morning. She slept on my bed all night with that Hello Kitty cold pack on her and was good as new in the morning.

What I secretly love the most though is at the end of the day it is me she prefers to be with. We are buds. She curls up next to me and sleeps at my side in the same spot she has since I first brought her home.

I have been walking with my friend at night, she has a mini dachshund (Riley). Riley and Piper are good friends so they walk with us. Both their mini legs trying to keep up, so stinkin funny.

We also ride our bikes to switch it up a bit, so today I purchased Piper a basket for the front of my beach cruiser so she can still enjoy the fresh air, I am excited, I know she will hate it. I only torture her out of love ;) But seriously how cute are we gonna look together??? I will definitely share pictures as soon as I get it.

Oh my goodness, I love that doggie basket. I have a wicker basket on my beach cruiser that Bella Bleu rides in. But we have to hold onto her leash so she doesn't pop out. How great is that covering to keep Piper safe.

So does she like the green rinestone collar? We have wanted to get that one too. Bella actually has the blue collar, halter, and leash and a pink halter. She's quite spoiled. I hope you will post a pic of Piper wearing her new collar.

What kind/color beach cruiser do you have?

I have an Earth Cruiser in mango that I have had for 10 years. I would love to get one that shifts, but it is in such great shape still I can't justify it! When I can get my shy girl to pose for me I will definitely post a shot of her new collar. I was leaning towards the lavender but my daughter really liked the green, she won.

Oh, Lisa, you are TOO funny. I can't wait to see you and Piper getting ready to take a spin with your new apparatus! Somehow I don't think I could balance Ginger in a basket. Bitsy, maybe, but not Ginger! Rained like the dickens today. Hopefully it's all done and tomorrow night will be good for our Relay for Life.

Take Care!

What's next - A rack for your trailer to hold the bike that holds the dog? ;)

Delena you're too funny. I don't think the trailer could hold the weight of all the bikes and pull alongs we have to carry!!!!! They would weigh more than it.
