My "other car"



This is my new bike trailer. Now before you get all in a huff about how I bought new, this is a special bike trailer because it is for my babies. Not my big baby who goes by the name Noah, but my furry babies--My Pugs Maggie & Gus.
We have been wanting one of these for a LONG time. But they are HARD to find. We thought for a long time we would be able to make a child's bike trailer turn into a bike trailer more fitting for dogs, but they were just not secure enough to keep the dogs in.
So I bent my not buying new rule for this.
I do plan on using this to also go get groceries from the store. We live about a mile from 2 grocery stores so since it is flat inside, it'll be a great alternative to driving my car.
The dogs love it.
I took them out in it last night and my black Pug Maggie wasn't as excited about it since she likes to walk, but my Fawn Pug Gus loved it since he has issues with long walk.
We purchased our bike trailer from Hunter K9 Gear. It was free shipping which was why we bought it. Also, it came packaged flat already assembled, we just had to put the wheels on. There was some Styrofoam used in the packaging but all in all the rest is fully recyclable. To me, the best part was it was fully assembled and I can fold it down flat to take with us on vacation. No more excuses anymore. Now I just have to make something to keep all the rain off me and the trailer...hmmm.....

This is just too cute. I hope you will post photos of the pugs in the bike trailer. Do they enjoy it?
