The brave dog protecting my bike (from me, as luck would have it) is PJ. PJ is a good dog... oh yes, you are! Oh yes, you are! (Wait, I think I went for this same joke in my last dog post. Sorry.)
This picture was taken at my dad's house last Thanksgiving. I have not seen PJ since, but the bike is still working fine. Since the bike is a Schwinn, I call it The Captain, after Captain Kangaroo, who used to do ads for Schwinn on his TV show.
