A gazillion captions

June 11th, 2008

While at my local pet supply store yesterday, I came to the realization that I really have not seen it all. Too many words to describe this… that it’s rendered me speechless. There must be a gazillion captions worthy of this photo - and I can’t think of a one.
I have officially...

Flickr tells me, “You’re the only person who has used “petstrollers” as a tag.” Hey… there’s my caption!

  1. The fabulous Kathleen allegedly said:

    Maybe they aren’t pet strollers, maybe they are pet wheelchairs ;-)

  2. The fabulous Doris allegedly said:

    Oh, Kathleen, no! It is crazy what people spend on their pets, but I guess as a childless pet owner, I understand the pet being your “baby”…although, I would never go as far as this…

  3. The fabulous Nichole allegedly said:

    LOL! That is just nuts! Apparently are our pets are getting too much exercise?

  4. The fabulous claire allegedly said:

    oh. boy.

  5. The fabulous jen duncan allegedly said:

    Good Lord- I saw those at the local *pet boutique* recently. Doesn’t anybody let their dog be a DOG anymore? crazy…

  6. The fabulous Carol allegedly said:

    Oh yes…we have a neighbor with 2 of those…they take their dogs all over in those strollers…plus they have a thing that hooks on the back of their bicycle so they can take their dogs for a bike ride.

  7. The fabulous Natalie allegedly said:

    LOL… I read *pest*strollers!
    Do you think they come with chicken wire
    floors…? I’m getting a bright idea.

  8. The fabulous Connie W allegedly said:

    Hey, when are they coming out with grandma strollers…I’m here, waiting for my ride! ;)

  9. The fabulous Thimbleanna allegedly said:

    Quick! I must run out and get one. Then it will look like I have an excuse for having such a fat cat — people will think I actually take him on stroller walks.

    I’m going with Kathleen’s excuse. Having had a dog that could barely get around but who loved his walks, this would have come in handy. I’m sure that’s not the only reason people use them, but ….

  10. The fabulous Cyndi allegedly said:

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Love it! That’s awesome… I can just picture my big galoot of a Great Dane Otis in one of those things….

  11. The fabulous Lissa allegedly said:

    I think they should make them more toddler size, and some parents who you see out shopping should put their feral children in them… and they can’t put their stickiness on clothes and stuffs then.. now dont go dissin’ me, I have had three carpet creatures/curtain climbers but they behaved whilst out! LOL

    there is a lady in our suburb who takes her dog for a walk and when it gets tired and she doesn’t, she puts it in a STROLLER..


  12. The fabulous Liz allegedly said:

    its funny that you posted on this subject! I made a post on the same subject this past May. If you go to my blog you can read about what brought the strollers to my attention. it just amazes me what people will do to pamper their pets. personally? I cant see my Abby, a 70 lb bordercollie/rottie/malamute mix sitting in one of those……
    (mauh) Liz

  13. The fabulous Natalie allegedly said:

    You are right: I was stickin’ my *a* where it doesn’t belong! Not for the fist time :-P

  14. The fabulous Natalie allegedly said:

    F i r s t

    Could it be nap time?

  15. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:

    Feral children. Ha!
    Anyway, my kid keeps her rabbit in a purse while out so what can I say.

  16. The fabulous Anne allegedly said:

    When my Chelsea had her surgery the vet actually suggested one of these so she could join Bitsy on walks. I looked them up online, thought about it, tried to picture my husband or me pushing one down the street and then decided to carry Chelsea. However, I have to say had I seen the pink one…

  17. The fabulous elizabeth allegedly said:

    I really don’t approve of this. My Melvin would be rolling all around and that would be terribly traumatic for the both of us. Safety features would need to be improved before I’d consider making that purchase.
    I think he’d enjoy that sun visor tho…

  18. The fabulous Sweet Cottage Dreams allegedly said:

    Hello there! What fun it was to read about your journey at the quilt show and with Triskit! I found your blog via Miss Elizabeth and have to tell you I love your story telling! I am also needing to confess here - oh priest, where are you? Ok, there you are! I have a confession to make. I am having some serious, serious issues with coveting thy neighbor’s house. Though she lives wayyy far away and isn’t really my “neighbor”….but I love her sewing room. It is so dern cute!!!! Ok….I feel better now. Your little do-dads up on the shelf are just so playful and whimsical - all the things I love.

    Anywhoz, just hoppin’ by to say waaaz up and introduce myself.


  19. The fabulous Barbie allegedly said:

    My daughter Freyah (14years) tells me that she would push our Dash around in one of those, Oh dear Freyah…

  20. The fabulous Christiane allegedly said:

    Lol, I am still giggling, poor creatures though. the only option I can think of to use this kind of rolling prison is a broken leg on a handful of dog in a crowd or on travel.
    BTW I imagine a Rottweiler kind of cart and nearly pee in my pants. Humans……….

  21. The fabulous blop allegedly said:

    Now, wouldn’t your pups love that ride?? But I know they like the John Deere ride, better!!!!
    Too funny, as usual!

  22. The fabulous Hannah allegedly said:

    OH MY! I am speechless *shaking my head*

  23. The fabulous Sandra :) allegedly said:

    I think it’s just the right size to keep that Triskit in check!!! I *know* I saw her her out running about the other day, unsupervised, opening pickle jars in the grocery store, then dumping the pickle juice in front of pregnant ladies … that girl is going to come to a bad end, as my dear departed grandma used to say (ok, she said it about ME, but thats’ neither here nor there!). I think the red one would be great for her :D

    My 17 pound cat Zoomer says he’d be happy to share with Triskit, so we can work on that - I’d prefer blue for Z, but we’ll let Triskit decide :D

  24. The fabulous Lory allegedly said:

    Oh yeah, I’ve seen those. I wanted to get one for my chihuahua so that I can take her out when I go walking in the mornings. She tires easily but I still wanted the company. I have yet to buy one though. lol


  25. The fabulous Chris @ Catsonmyquilts allegedly said:

    My sister has one of these strollers for her foo-foo miniature poodle dog. It’s a sissy dog who refuses to get her feet dirty on a walk. My cats could beat up that silly dog in a heartbeat.

  26. The fabulous Susan allegedly said:

    yikes! jay leno, or maybe some guy on the comedy channel, made a comment the other night about people buying sweaters for their pets…god gave them a sweater, its called fur. i feel sorry for these fashion victims. can you imagine a poor dog in, say, phenoix whose ditzy owner has bought them a vest or jacket and takes them outside…like they are not hot enough as it is. i remember people on kauai with their big shappg sheep dog or some other long hair exotic sweating its guts out…not only was it hot but about 90+% humidity. and, whats the point of taking your dog for a “walk” if you put the little porker in a stroller.

  27. The fabulous Nanette allegedly said:

    Hilarious. What happened to walking the dog?? I have a dog that would look so cute in that but you have to ask yourself, why?

  28. The fabulous sara allegedly said:

    Ohmigosh, I know. What is worse- I have been to art & wine festivals and these odl ladies are using these things to push their tabby cats around. Lord help us all. Oh! I updated my blog website, would you update the link you havve for me on your sidebar? Thank you! -Sara

  29. The fabulous Hunnybunny allegedly said:

    What’s scarier than seeing them in the pet store is seeing them in use. I used to work at a craft store and I vividly remember seeing a woman push her perfectly groomed and dressed Yorkie around the store in it. The kicker for me was we lived in Alaska at that point home of the sled dogs, the looks that woman got were priceless.

  30. The fabulous Jackie allegedly said:

    Unfortunately, it is true..I have actually seen people out and about with their beloved (pet that is) in the stroller.

  31. The fabulous sharon allegedly said:

    OMG do they have one of those big enough for my Madeline?? I just might need one.

  32. The fabulous Lauri allegedly said:

    Ha-haaa! We saw those a while back at PetsMart or where ever, and Allison really wanted me to get one for Lucy. Just couldn’t do it though…

  33. The fabulous Jane Weston allegedly said:

    LOL - well I guess someone has to start a tag on flickr at some point…how cool it was you :o)

  34. The fabulous Pieces allegedly said:

    I showed this picture to The Loved and he buried his face in his hand and said “Our nation is doomed.”


  35. The fabulous Moog allegedly said:

    Oh - a way to get attention? Maybe I should get a pet. Is that a drink holder on the handlebar? Get me a Coke and a Maltese, please.

  36. The fabulous Marlene Bush allegedly said:

    I’m speechless. I’m never speechless. But I’m speechless.

  37. The fabulous Jennifer Paganelli allegedly said:

    Love these but my pooch won’t fit ….it be away to grocery shop with him without people freaking…..won’t be long until the kids are pushing me in one of these

  38. The fabulous Doe allegedly said:


  39. The fabulous Michele C allegedly said:

    I saw these in Boston a couple of years ago and really want one for my shih tzu. I keep meaning to get one, but I haven’t yet, as my two-legged children’s luxuries are higher on the list right yet! — Michele

  40. The fabulous ellen crimi-trent allegedly said:

    when I was in NYC for Surtex I went on the subway to go to Century 21 and on the way 2 guys and their dog came on the train in one of these strollers!! I was blown away how ridiculous did this seem to me. What is the world coming to when you put your dog in a stroller!!!!!!!!!

  41. The fabulous Danielle allegedly said:

    12 years ago when my son was little and I was VERY poor, I used to walk him in an old beat up second hand cheap stroler and dream of the new all terrain big wheeled strolers that could go anywhere. I didn’t even have a car at the time so the stroler was used to go everywhere, even to the grocery store. One day, I passed a lady on the street who was pushing the lusted after stroler, I stopper to ask her if she enjoyed it and if it was worth the money and what do you think she had in there? A poodle!!! Sometime the world is a very crazy place. Thanks for sharing. Danielle

  42. The fabulous Busy Little Quilter allegedly said:

    This is too funn!!! It’s the perfect ride for your fabric line!!!

  43. The fabulous mary allegedly said:

    OH, I don’t see using these for a dog, unless they have a handicap, but I can certainly fathom a fabric stroller!!!! hehehe

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
