Sophie rides a train

Every dog should have his/her own train.

People wave to you as you glide by. 

 The train engineer blows the whistle twice. 

 Cars stop for you. 

 It is all so much fun...

Even Snoopy rides the rails with
his friend, Woodstock.


 I'll wait my turn to go again.
PLEASE?

(In these photos, Sophie is modeling a red Gentle Leader. 
It is NOT a muzzle. 
It is a collar/harness that reminds her that she is working, not playing.
She can breath fine, eat and drink, and even bark. 
It keeps her from tugging ahead of her alpha human.)

Sophie seems to be gazing about, thoroughly enjoying her ride! Is she always so calm?

I think Sophie should be the engineer.

Elaine said...

Sophie has such a look of contentment on her face. But then all dogs seem to love going for a ride.

Kathy said...

No, not the engineer ~ the conductor, the one who welcomes all the passengers on board. Good job, Sophie!

We have the same thing when Sam wears his gentle leader, people are always asking why he is wearing a muzzle! Nice pictures!

I'm pretty sure Sophie believes she owns that train! She sure looks like she is enjoying herself!

Karin,

'Train Town'? 'Griffith Park-ish'?

Memories of pony rides -- many pony generations ago.
