Artist's Description

Yup, that’s right. Some people carry their dogs to the store. (Some bring them INSIDE in their pockets!) Some people bring their cat that way. I used to with a wonderfully sweet cat named “Cat” who loved to go places with me and I didn’t have a car. I took her to parks and she climbed new trees, saw birds that could eat her instead of the other way around, and…. Oops. See I lose it on my own blurbs too.

Back to the bike. The two ducks are in that carrier and just hanging out while eco-conscious mom shopped at Trader Joe’s. They obviously didn’t bark like dogs in cars would have; they didn’t quack either. They didn’t fuss around and act unruly like kids (who need to be in carriers for us who don’t have them to be free of them in store. But I digress – again). And they don’t run from end to end of the carrier and knock the bike over like Cat tried to do many times so she could see EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME. These guys just sat there and watched as people walked by not noticing them.

When mom returned she had fresh lettuce and opened the door, which is when I took the other shot. Mom said they don’t even try to fly out and are as much like any other pet as possible – other than they have web feet, waddle, and ask for breakfast with funny sounding voices. But they love to travel and mom does it without fossil fuels and with saddle bags chocked full of what had to be a week’s groceries.

Maybe it’s not all that unusual in other parts of the country (or world) to have a pet duck or two in a dog carrier on a bike at the grocery store. Then again, maybe this woman was unique, a single older woman who can’t bear to part with her pets for even a short trip to the grocery store.

Or maybe I’m just odd and find this odd because I like to share my oddness with other odd things so I don’t seem as odd. (sigh)
