I felt at first like 'one of those' pet owners as I stuffed her into a cheap backpack.
Talia is 12 years old, squirrelly and much too independent to be off her four paws and at the mercy of my directional disgression. But she did great! She loved being in the gimbled backpack!
We rode just under 8 miles and I think she slept for 5 of them. The two cold beers I had stowed on the bottom of the pack must've acted like a mini air conditioner.
