Take Your Dog To Work Day!

Meet Rookie!

And please congratulate him on his first bike ride - EVER! Rookie is the adorable chihuahua mix that I fostered and am in the process of adopting. He is a great passenger/co-pilot (not a back-seat driver at all) as he remained quiet the entire way from my house near Golden Gate Park to my office in SF's Financial District.

My friend Kay lent me her Basil pet carrier that she picked up at Warm Planet. It's sturdy, sizeable, safe and comfy enough to accommodate your furry friend. I like that the basket attaches to a rear rack so your dog can chill out and not be distracted by looking into your face. That way it's actually safer for you too.

We had a fun time on our morning commute. I think I'll bike to work with Rookie more often.

What could be better than biking to work? Biking to work w/ a cute little dog in a bike basket, that what! My Smooth Fox Terrior would under no circumstances be that well behaved.

If you can afford it, I'd get one of these Basil Pet Baskets. Rookie was very comfortable and at ease the whole trip! I think it helps that they can't look into your face. My friend carries two chihuahuas in this same basket all the time.

Possibly the cutest dog EVER - a face like that should guarantee a supermodel career for Rookie, even if just within the pages of Velo Vogue ;0)
