Stroller for Chippie!

I had plans to meet Kecia in Columbus, OH, for the the 'Country Living Show'. Well, long story short, I was going to have to take Chippie. Not a problem, but it was either leave him in the hotel room all day, or take him to the show, but I was going to need to have him in a STROLLER!!!!!

So, I checked online--they started out pricewise around $40, and went up--WAY UP!!! They reminded me of Amish carriages, and while I don't have a thing against Amish carriages, they didn't look like they would offer enough circulation. And the ones that did were definitely not in my price range.

So, what's an artist to do? A POOR artist? One trip to my local Salvation Army put me on the right track! For a few dollars, look what I found!!!!!

Well, before I got too heavily invested in this project, I had to see if Chippie was going to cooperate. And guess what? HE LOVES IT!!!!!So, I stripped it down, and got painting!

Chippie sez, 'Hurry up!' And he also told me, 'Lotsa bling for the Honeys!'

I found a huge bag of ribbon at ANOTHER thrift store for $1--that's right, I got all of that ribbon for a buck! And got the Bohemian Buggy all laid out!!!!! It's also got lights, and plays the song by Dion, 'The Wanderer'.

And does he love it!!!!!

The bad news is though, that Chippie got sick and we couldn't go. But we'll be stylin' around town, you can bet that!!!!!


  1. OMG....he is really styling in that! You did an amazing job! And Chippie looks like he loves it. Great job....hope he is feeling better.

  2. too cute! so you are taking chippie for a walk every day now in his new wheels, right? and guess what? i saw plenty of dogs walking around at the Country Living Fair!

  3. Way kewl ... I have a little white schnauzer that would love something like that :)) Thanks for the comment on my blog too .. I think I shall take your advice :))

  4. Love what you did with the stroller. I can actually date that stroller as 17 yr old. I had the exact same one for my oldest son! I am going to show it to him to see if it conjures up any memories.
