My Bicycle

I recently made a pretty big purchase.
I bought myself a bike. 
It's purple and pink with a pretty pink lock. 
It has a white basket for my pup.
Who, actually loves to ride around.
I also got Wicket a Thundershirt.
He has problems with fear and anxiety. 
The Thundershirt has been a huge help to him! 
It was more money than I would ever spend on clothes for myself,
but, this has been worth it.

I put it on him before anything that would cause him anxiety happens, 
and his symptoms are a lot better.

Whenever we have people over, he barks like crazy, then hides in his bed for 8 hours.
But, with the Thundershirt, he actually smells the guests and sits in their laps! 

Anyways.. I've been riding my bike everywhere lately.
So, if you see me riding around the Provo area,
honk and wave! 
But not too loud, cause I might crash. 

Happy Friday!

  1. I want a bike for my pup! I just got my dog a thundershirt too, and I love it! I just wish it wasn't so dang expensive! It kind of fits her weird because she is a miniature dachshund and her legs are so small. I got it for her because she is crazy and jumps all over people. It has worked wonders! haha.

    I tried the Thundershirts on some Beagles I used to walk to help them be normal and not go crazy and bark at other dogs and pull during walks. The Thundershirt didn't help for that purpose, but it isn't what it's advertised for either. Anyway, I just saw them at Target so maybe they offer better prices!

  7. good for you, getting a bike! better for the environment, and in light of your fairly recent car probs, now you won't have to worry about "breakdowns"! the worst that will happen is a flat tire :)!

  8. wo0t for bikes! I need to get a different one. The one I bought, has no gears, WAY to hard to try and ride with no gears. It also had a super cute basket lol.

  10. Nice bike! Wicket looks quite pleased with his new clothes and new ride.:) My cats Pig and Tesla love to ride in bicycle baskets too. Happy weekend!

  11. I love the old Beach Cruiser styled bicycles, but could never find one the owner would either sell, or that would be able to be fixed up nicely. Then my mom found one for me in that style that was new. Cherry red, white, and a bit of black. We put an old fashioned wicker basket on the front, and I have a long plate on the back over that fender that I can attach other things to. So cute.

    Love your bike & love that Wicket likes to ride along with you! I have yet to talk my husband into letting me get a tiny dog baby of my own!
