"To the Papmobile, Teasel!"

Jana has accompanied us on quite a few cycling trips but the little hairies have always had to stay at home. All that has changed with the creation of the 'papmobile'!

There is room for only one little dog so they'll have to take turns at coming along for the ride. Teasel got the first shot and, after a moment or two of confusion, she loved it. Our route took us away from the road, where she got to run free and do a spot of rabbit hunting too.

We'll have to draw lots to see who goes on the next trip. Either that or get a few more baskets for the bikes!

Is this the greatest concept ever? Like the Pap-mobile, Angelina travels in a fur-rari. Those pictures are just too much!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Oh is that ever the cutest photo! She obviously loves it. ;-)

What a cool way for the paps to travel. Definitely need more baskets so that all can go.

GoldenSamantha said...

How adorable! She fits right into it, snuggly as ever!

wow, what a great idea! I love the last picture, she looks so happy!

Those are great pictures! My Betsy LOVES to go for bike rides too. She goes crazy whenever I pull the bike out of the shed. However, she doesn't last too long if there is too much action on the street. A squirrel or a little kid walks by and it's all over. :) It is fun though!

Fabulous! You've got room for at least three more baskets - a pannier either side and a basket at the back. If your LSH adds baskets too you could take the whole tribe! Problem solved . . . ;-)

All you needed was a tornado in the background! Sorry, couldn't help but recall the Wizard of Oz.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oooh - Teasel, what a wonderful way to go for a bike ride...no effort at all! That suits my Dane laziness down to a T!! :-) Do you think I could squeeze into that basket with you? Or maybe they make a bigger size for me? :-)

Slobbers,

Diego Dog said...

Teasel....you look great in that basket! My Mom has a power scooter that I get to ride in. I just love the wind blowing in my hair!

Lucky doggie! I wish I could ride in someone's basket as they drove around the countryside...

Chris said...

Don't let Bryan see the papmobile or he'll be in like a shot, will have to get him one, at the moment his thing to go in is the wheelbarrow.

BCxFour said...

Oh my goodness...this is adorable! I simply love these pictures!

I wonder if I could sneak a papillion into my house under the border collie noses? Maybe that will cure me of wanting another baby? I have always wanted a little dog - especially now I see these pictures!

Not original I know but this is sooooo cute

Gayle said...

I cannot believe she didn't try to jump out. I took our old (and departed) doxie Nicky in the pull behind trailer with the baby. He was doing great for about five miles and then all of a sudden something must have caught his eye because Olivia was yelling to me. He had jumped out and skinned up his chin pretty good. They are all going to love getting to go with you, and hopefully they stay put.

Gennasus said...

No need to worry Gayle, Teasel was wearing a harness. I wouldn't put it past any of the paps to try leaping out if anything caught their eye.

Amber and Nala said...

Too cute!

Jo said...

Oh Gennasus;) this is adorable. You'll have to get more baskets... (((Hugs))) and pats for the paps from Jo

Life With Dogs said...

Looks like a fun ride from here!

You may want to drop by Friday if you have a second. :)

Esther Garvi said...

So cute! Sheba would be joining Jana on the ground of course, but she has her days when she wants to join me on up on the saddle! Not so sure my mare would appreciate it as much... :-D

Dave Coulter said...

Very cool. Reminds me of the time I helped rescue a chihuahua - while kayaking. One of the few breeds that would fit in my boat!

Oz Girl said...

What an adorable shot of Teasel in the basket! Someday, I AM going to have a papillon. Such cute lil buggers.

Kitty said...

Cute, cute, cute!!! When I had guinea pigs I used to push them around in an old pram - I think they may have liked it :)

I think bee orchids can be found in the south of Scotland, not too sure...

Checkers said...

what courage you have to be in that basket - I don't think I would be very comfy with mom "driving" the bicycle!
