I've always had a dog. At one time as many as 6, that i and my wife cared for. I have a mix now that i found last year aug 31st. He was skin and bones and I knew if I just did nothing he might starve to death. So I got a hotdog and got him to come to me and the rest is history. He's my best friend now, Koda is hi name and I am blessed to have him around. We go mountain bike in all the time. I’m 50 years old and love the outdoors. I race mountain bikes and won the fall opener at camp eagle this fall. I am 100 percent a dog lover. I got an Afghan hound for my 30th birthday and groined her regularly . Her name was Pepper and she was black and the best birthday gift ever. I even walk Koda on a leash while ridding my bike, he loves it. Your dog will be happy walking with me.
