I literally have a “pet” peeve that I’m seeing more and more of:  people who carry their dogs on walks or push them in dog strollers.  

Wha?!  Dogs have 4 legs.  They should use them. 

For real – dogs are wandering, hunting, traveling pack animals.  They need lots of exercise.  Probably even more than humans do.  

Unless your dog is missing 3 of it’s legs or has a medical issue, PUT IT DOWN and let it walk.  It needs to walk.  You’ll be doing it a favor.

On my bike ride on Friday I saw three instances of dogs being carried.  One was a golden retriever in a pull behind lorry thing, one was a chihuahua in a specially made playpen on the back of a recumbent bike and the other one was riding in a side panier on the back wheel.  Okay, the smaller can’t keep up with a bike, but the golden retriever?  C’mon!  It would be in heaven running along side, as long as it was not for 20 miles.

Put.  Down.  The Dog.  

 

Seriously.

On another note, while I was looking for images I came across inspiration for how to create my niche in the aerial performing market:
