Greetings Brothers and Sisters of CR, With the wisdom of Soloman, Dale Brown blesses peace.... with his pardon! Praise the Lord! We all bring bikes home but" honestly Honey, she followed me home!" A 6 month old, black Labrador Retreiver pup "Nestlee" now dogbikes daily with me using a medium leash, each day getting better trained to stay on the left , focus,etc. I use my wife's Jack Taylor mixte for training as it has a little more "breathing room " if you know what I mean!! Finally, I got the Pepto pink Mercier for Christmas!, celebrating my 25 years at UPS. A CR listmember scouted it out 8 months ago in Seattle with me just now affording it. I'm putting a Gold Simplex LJ and Mafac Competition group on it and heading to Vegas! Viva la pink and gold Mercier!! Peace in CR, a puppy and a bike for Christmas!! Amen.
