I've been watching this gentleman ride by my house for a couple of weeks with an adorable white dog in the rear carrier basket. He passed by again today, but was gone before I had a chance to flag him down. This time I grabbed my camera, jumped into my Jeep and tried to guess where he was headed. There was a second bike-rider this time accompanying my unknown dog walker.....make that dog-chauffeur. They were quickly out of sight but I made a lucky guess at where they might have headed. I quickly caught up to them and introduced myself. The gentleman introduced himself as Grant Peter and his son Todd. I was amazed. I knew this fellow, but hadn't recognized him. I had known his older brother Brian for most of my 60 years in King City. He told me the dog belonged to his son Todd. We did a bit of reminiscing and I completely forgot to ask Todd for his dog's name. I phoned Grant later and he told me the dog's name was Lilo. When the time came to put this blog entry together, I enlarged the digital image and realized Lilo had turned away at the exact moment I took the picture. I will be on the lookout for Grant and Lilo on another day and will make sure I get a good photo of Lilo for a subsequent blog entry.
