How in the world did they convince 25 dogs, most of them puppies, to sit still long enough for a picture?

I wish we had a camera just today, coming home from IHOP. There were two bikers on the road ahead of us. Each biker had a milk crate or something similar strapped to the back of the bike, with a little dog in each one. Dogs had a harness on, and a leash to keep them on the bike. They were bopping about, happy as could be. "Ohboyohboyohboy, goin' for a ride on the bike! Wind in my ears! What's that over there? SQUIRREL! I love the bike! Mmmm, ears go flapflapflap. Ohboyohboyohboy, goin' for a ride on the bike! "

It's hard to keep a group like that in one place, excellent photo.

I don't even have to meet this dog to know that we will be best buds. Can you see what makes him extra-special?

The beer bottle cap opener on his collar?

He can be my best bud, too!

ANd if we're deserving and lucky enough to be part of that family, we really are blessed!
