"Biking the dog"

A beautiful fall day for "walking the dog" or "biking the dog". On our walks, I consistently point out to Sophie well behaved dogs, like this sweet boxer trotting along side his owner. Sophie is basically a good dog, but sometimes she just does bad things...

How cute! I wouldn't dare bike my dog .... we'd both be in a heap in no time, especially if another female dog came along. Methinks Sophie could teach my Abby a thing or two. Maybe while they're doing that, you can give me an art lesson! nancy

Love the subject and the way you handled it. You are able to tell a great story in your art.

Wow! How do you manage to get so much information down on a moving subject like that?

Love this moment in time - find it so difficult to balance bicycles and their riders and motion - you sure nailed it here.
A thought for folks who might like to try biking with their dogs - be careful of distances.
My Wheatie regularly walked 6 miles a day beside me (in great shape) so I decided to bicycle with him for a change. He trotted along just fine. It was when I chose to stop to watch kayakers on the river that I noticed his paws were getting raw. Speed and distances took a toll. Be careful out there.
