It's a Dog's Life and What the Heck Does that Mean, Anyway?

Okay, first off I want to make it perfectly clear that the individual who is standing behind the dog in the basket is NOT MY HUSBAND. I swear my hubby would never dress up a dashshund, put it into his bicycle basket, and ride around a crowded city with it. I swear. And I am a very honest person.

The doxie in the basket, with the little hat on his head, is Wally. He is twelve years old and he has been skateboarding, yes, I did say skateboarding, since he was a puppy. The man on the bicycle in the background told me these things after I chased him down with my camera. My girls spotted them when we were on a recent family trip to Seattle, and nearly passed out when I told them that I was going to ask him if I could snap a picture. Of course they followed me into the store that I followed Wally and his Dad into, giggling at their Mother's audacity! I absolutely adore animals and it never ceases to amaze me as to the lengths that people will go to in order to humanize them. Funny, nutty, touching.

Anyway, I guess that Wally is somewhat "famous" up in the area of Pike's Market, Seattle, because when I was listening to the radio, later that night, a reporter for the news mentioned him in a little blurb. You wouldn't think that I would have to travel all the way to Seattle to meet someone "famous", but who knew?

So, just to make you smile, I am introducing you to Wally the Skateboarding Doxie. Kinda makes you wonder, hmmm...?

That is one handsome dog. And being a doxie owner myself (hence my blog name) I know a good looking wiener when I see one!

It was funny that after I blogged with delight about a dachsund named Moonshine, I came to your blog and found a picture of one. Also, very nice to see your daughters and hear more about them. No wonder you're proud of them.

...Too cute! And I remember hearing that saying a long time ago, about wishing someone a 'dog's life'. Back then I think it was meant to be mean and wish hardship on someone but by todays standards I would def' take it as a compliment! lol...

...Don't ya just love animals?!

...Thanks for sharing! :o)

I love the name of your blog! I stopped by and saw pictures of your doxies. They sure are cute!


So wonderful to have you stop by! I read about Moonshine, yesterday, and I think there just might be a puppy in your future!


Animals are wonderful. My pets bring me so much joy. Life just wouldn't be the same without them.
