.::. East Coast Park Bicycle Ride .::.

Some weeks back, Mummy brought me to ECP for a gathering with her friends. And because all of them were either cycling or blading, and I'm afraid of big wheels around me, Mummy got me into a bicycle basket.

Daddy insisted on having me in his bicycle and Mummy lined the basket with a thin cushion from my carrier and a towel, and I lay in there comfortably. It was really a good ride! It was so windy and Daddy went quite fast.



Here I am when I just got into the basket. I feel safe in there really, because everyone seem to be staring and pointing at me!



Sometimes I lay in there comfortable, sometimes I stick my head out.
The only bad thing which happened that day was that it started raining not long after I got comfy, admiring the sights. It was so sudden! And it was pouring before I could even bark!
Daddy rode fast and carried me into a shelter, leaving the bicycle outside. He went so fast that Mummy couldn't find him, especially when she could hardly open her eyes with the wind and heavy rain getting into it. She got all wet while I was all warm and dry. She found shelter somewhere else before coming to look for us. Luckily she noticed Daddy's bike with my cushion soaked in rain water parking outside the shelter along with many other bicycles!
She couldn't find me and Daddy because Daddy carried me and sat on a bench inside the Male toilet. She took my cushion and put it under this noisy thing which blows out hot air though. And when Daddy came out, he spotted Mummy. She got my basket, cushion and towel all dry before putting me back. It stopped raining after awhile.



It was quite cooling, especially with the wind blowing as Daddy cycled. So Mummy bundled me up in the towel. She's paranoid and afraid that I might get sick. But I must say that it sure feels warm and comfy in there! Don't I look cute?




And here's Daddy who brought me to the shelter before I could even get wet. He was proudly telling Mummy that I didn't get wet, oblivious to the fact that Mummy was drenched!
We joined the group after I got settled down and continued on our adventure!
And we stopped at Bedok Jetty for a rest. The sea was beautiful, and I spent some time looking across the sea.


I even met other doggie friends there!
And I noticed a rainbow! The first rainbow I ever saw. Can you spot it?
Look what Mummy's friends drew on the sand! I think it looks awfully like me.
These were some of the beautiful sights I saw that day.
And when Mummy returned the rented bikes, I walked with them to the food center. We saw many cute dogs on the way. Her friends thought I looked very cute with my long body, especially when I walked very quickly.
These were the food the gobbled up. And me? I had my boring kibbles.
While they ate and chatted, I was hiding below the table. Actually, pets were not allowed but they put me there anyway. I was good and quiet, I just lay there without disturbing anyone. Mummy was afraid that I might be cold because there were fans blowing and it started raining again, so I was bundled in that pink towel again.
Just as I was dozing off, Mummy carried me and we made our way home. I dropped by Daddy's house the first time before heading home.
I enjoyed myself very much. It's raining like everyday lately! I wonder what's with the weather these days. It just makes me feel lazy and I curl up in my bed.
Anyway, I held my pee and poo for almost 9 hours again that day. Mummy rushed me to my pee tray the first thing we were back and I 'released' myself immdiately.
Maybe she should bring my tray out next time!

Hi, Chinook!
Sounds like a great adventure! Sure it was not fun when it started to rain but your Dad took good care of you!
You look so cute into that basket!
My mom says that that food looks delicious. Like you, I only eat kibbles!

You are so well behave.
I haven't try putting Pearly in a bike basket. I would like to but I always have the fear that she might jump out. Though other times she would sit still.

Chinook said...

Hey kay,

you should try! make it really comfy and perhaps Pearly would be feeling too good and fascinated with the surroundings to bother trying to jump out! Ay, the bike's going too quickly to try!

Lotsa licks,
Chinook
