BORN TO BE WILD
Friday Harbor, Washington
Wednesday, July 14, 2004
If you own a dog and motorcycle, be afraid, be very afraid. As this photo attests, it's possible your best friend is going to take your prized ride for a little spin. And worse yet, that little joy ride may end at the local pub. From the photos it seems he's had more than his fill and is all saddled up for the journey back home. Unfortunately the suds has clouded his judgment and eye sight.
I didn't have the heart to tell him he was sitting on the bike backwards. Since he was obviously drunk, I tried to take away his keys but couldn't find them so he must kick-start the bike? Surprising, he looks so small. Maybe the owner has two dogs and the other dog (and driver), a Laborador Retriever, was still in the bar finishing up a game of pool?
This all happened outside a great little bar in Friday Harbor, WA called Herb's Tavern. I hung out there that evening for a beer and some karaoke. I asked around about a dog playing pool and they all looked at me a little funny. So I guess we'll never know the full story about the doggie biker.
Mystery is sometimes a good thing, let's the imagination run a little wild and makes for better stories. And we all know that life is all about having good stories to tell.
