Crazy Dog Lady!

I am officially a "crazy dog lady" according to my husband and neighbors!

I just received my Pink Doggie Stroller! And everyone was laughing at me last night when they were over having coctails on our deck!

I really thought this would be HELPFUL for my upcoming trip and better than carrying the Sherpa bag all over Michigan and Ohio... I also think it will make this particular event (reunion at a park) far more easier w/ her able to nap in the stroller instead of her on the leash around a bazillion people and kids all day.

Should I expect to get laughed at alot in public?? I'll post pics when I get back from the trip. Gucci seems to like it so far, I strolled her around the pool deck and she thought it was pretty cool.

I also expect my husband to complain over the bulky stroller in the rental van, its bad enough we have about 10 suitcases and 9 people we have to squeeze in a 12 person van!

Does anyone want to admit owning one of these?

I wanted one but the husband put his foot down. I have to pick my battles wisely! I came closer to getting the off roading 3 wheel one for our upcoming cross country move but no avail yet! I think it is a good idea! My friend with the pug has one but her dog tore the area at the zipper. She doesnt like to be left in it and it did come apart quite easily. Good idea you are practicing and putting her in it at home though!

One of my other gfs with Chi's has backpacks that stroll on wheels with her dogs names on them.... too cute! I just take Belle and Dora's soft sided crate and it is green... not very fancy. My maltese has all kinds of bags that she adores though! She just doesn't like the ones that keep her head in!

Ok it's Official. You guys need a "Crazy Dog Lady" vanity Plate for the car. I can't believe that you have gotten aboard the Havanses S.U.V. stroller/oversized crate on wheels machine that they got putting around all over nowadays. Do you guys have matching outfits..... I would love to see that.....

My husband would draw the line on the Vanity Plate! Like Amanda's said no to the stroller! He thinks the vanity plates are the silliest thing ever! Of course, I've seen some that are pretty cute! But he might actually go for "crz dg ldy" haha. Too many letters probably!

Amanda, I think my husband is horrified to walk next to me! His comment to our friends was "See what happens because we didnt' have a child together?" (Our kids are from a previous marriage)

As a matter of fact, we DO have matching outfits! That's only because I sew and scored some phenomenal Pucci fabric and made a dress and had a wee bit leftover so I made Gucci a Pucci dress/harness! But, we haven't worn them out at the same time. Hey! Maybe my husband's class reunion next week is the place to do it...since I now have the CDL stroller!?

I hope he doesn't contact a divorce attorney!!!!!!!!

Actually I think that's actualy a valid legal reason for Divorce.. ...matching dog/wife outfits. It's really messes a guy's mind up...like for years...

Kara,
I have magnets but Jim says no to putting them on the lease!!! I had "havanes" license plate but then I got the lease car.... sigh! Yeah, he definetly wouldn't let me get the pink stroller let alone walk with me. His friends harass him enough about when are we going to get a real dog! I think if my mother in law saw me with a stroller she would faint too!

Kara - you are so funny !!!

We actually have a dog stroller that we used a couple of months' ago when we went down to Key West. We take the "fast cat" down from Fort Myers and in order to take a dog on it, you must have them in a carrier. I thought no way was I going to carry a carrier (and I was sure my husband would not have wanted to with our bags), so I loaded Dani up in it and off we went. She loved it! It made her feel so much more secure with all the people and commotion going on, and it was much easier to manuver. Everyone who saw it originally thought I had an actual baby in it (why would I put a baby in a stroller that totally zipped closed??), and then upon closer inspection they said "oh look at the cute dog in there!"

I didn't get any weird looks at all (at least not because of the stroller!!)

It was great having it too as there was an area below where I could put her water bottle, treats, etc., to have with us at all times.

OMG! You guys are TOO funny!

I meant to say...I love the picture of the girls, Amanda! And the rolling backpacks sound awesome too! I bought a backpack, but it is more masculine, it is camoflauge...Derek, you can borrow it sometime!

You get the "that's not a real dog" too??? I've had a few friends say that to me!

My husband does not KNOW about the matching outfits, I really don't have the nerve to dress up the same as her......he might FAINT and hit the floor on that one!

I'm sure I have NOT heard the end on the stroller! My kids haven't even seen it yet and I'm sure they will think I've lost my mind. hehe
