Stroller embarrassment

Had a coupon, the price was good as was the quality and so I bought the coveted dog stroller. Moxie is not a good hiker, I love to walk. Moxie seems to really like it, but oh my gosh! Lots of embarrassing feedback out walking tonight...
I am feeling like the crazy dog lady, not comfortable with that. Help, please.

Just big laughter, lots of attention like they had never seen such a foolish thing.

Just laugh with them and it all ends quickly. As long as you act embarrassed, it will continue, but as soon as you own it, it quits. Been there. Done that.

Thank you, maybe I am feeling overly sensitive but the practicality of the stroller is hard to explain without sounding even more crazy. The fact is that it makes life easier.

Oh, I have to agree with you on that! I find the stroller to be a huge asset in the way of taking a dog (or dogs) places that you aren't normally able to do.

Free tip: If you want to get into restaurants, take a baby blanket with you to throw over the mesh covering.

Debra- go back to LA where people approach you wanting to know what brand your stoller is! I can't even imagine how my neighbors would laugh if I took the stroller around here. They already cheer me on walking all 3 at once!

I've seen this before. Don' t worry about it. Mostly though when the dog in the stroller has reached advanced age and still comes out for a walk (with the other dog).

A stroller is really the only reasonable solution. I'm so glad to hear Moxie likes it!

My Bichon disliked walking as well. He was huge for his breed but had zero idea that he was not really a lap dog (35 pounds!). He would just stop walking and short of yanking and giving him daily road burn I would struggle to carry him home. People often stopped and offered a ride-- total strangers would leave their house or stop their car. On more than one hot humid day I got into a car.
Neighbors suggested a wagon. He was too large for the dog stroller but this would have worked well for us.

Locally our newspaper did a chatty piece with photos of a local breeder of pugs. She had two in a stroller and one walking along.

I think Moxie is a lucky girl!
