Hah, off to a good start!
I wish my wife would ride with me but it's just not her thing. No big deal, though. My dog snuggles better anyway...
I got a sidecar to travel with my dog. He never complains, is delighted to be with me, approves of my dietary choices, is a social butterfly who helps me meet folks, appreciates a good beer, snuggles better than my wife, and hangs on my every word as if it's the most profound thing he's ever heard.
