My friend Hazel said she saw the perfect stroller for Katie at one of the resellers in town, and yesterday we drove over to take a look. I decided I wanted it, and the man who owns the store said to get the dog and make sure she liked it, so I got Katie out of the car, put her in the stroller, and the man and I took turns pushing Katie around the area. She just sat there looking around, enjoying her ride. I was surprised at how she just took to it, like it was normal - business as usual. Maybe her first owners had a dog stroller?
I've been wanting something like this for when I want to take a walk longer than Katie wants or if the ground is too hot. Or when we walk to town, or over to the Big Tent in January - this will be perfect. It'll keep her up off the ground and out of the foot traffic, and it has two net areas that I can use to stow purchases.
This morning I had my normal bag of daily trash, and also some boxes to toss. It would have taken two walks to the dumpster to carry it all. So I put it all in the stroller, put Katie on her leash and off we went. It went up little hills, down little hills, over rocks and sand - all super smooth.
The wheels come off easily, it folds up and will be easy to keep inside if needed, but I'll probably keep it outside, locked to The Palms in good weather.
And here's the Princess in her new stroller with the canopy up:
And with the canopy down:
Then we walked down to the fire pit area - everyone pitched in for wood, and I wanted to get my money in since they brought the wood today. I wheeled Katie down in the stroller and she sat happily all the way and then sat in it while I stayed and talked. Then one of the guys, Bill, brought three large pizzas and wings from town and we all chowed down. Katie just sat in her stroller watching everything.
Pretty cool, huh?
From me and Katie, have a great Monday evening, everyone! :)
