Did you know that our dog Billy is a Pet Therapy dog? Accompanied by Maggie, he visits patients at the Royal Columbia Hospital, spreading smiles and cheering up very sick and stressed people of all ages. He loves his job – but is always completely exhausted after spreading all that love! Lots of other dogs do this too, as part of a great organization called Pets and Friends. This weekend, we will be joining other pet therapy dogs (and their owners!) to compete in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. Please contribute to this great cause by visiting the web site and making a donation to our team.
Here is everything we have learned about how to transport dogs safely on bikes in a pet basket or trailer. My advice to anyone looking to take their dog on their cycling journeys is to think about the size and personality of your pet, and try to pick out a pet basket that is a good fit, physically and psychologically.
On Commercial Drive I recently came across this dog, waiting very patiently for its owner to finish refreshing him/herself in JJ Bean Coffee Shop. I found this very inspiring. I know it’s a bit late for New Year’s resolutions, but what the heck. I came up with a new resolution: I am going to spend the year seeking out creative, enterprising ways to overcome the many obstacles that currently prevent me from becoming car-free.
Review of the Axiom Dual Function Premium Pet Bike Basket. It is a sturdy, easy-to-use pet bike basket that is great value for money. It offers a simple no-fuss no-muss way to safely transport your small dog on a bike ride.
