My youngest brother, Mike, was crazy about motorcycles. Well, honestly, all three of my brothers were fairly interested in them, but when he was about six or seven years old, Mike found a unique way to combine his passion for motorcycles with his love for our dog.
Using our How To Train Your Irish Setter guidebook, Mike created this handy diagram to identify the moving parts on any dog-turned-motorcycle.
|1. Horn 2. Headlight 3. Handle grip 4. Fuel tank 5. Bli(n)kers|
Reflecting on this sweet memory, I draw several conclusions:

~ Kelly was a blessedly patient and good-natured creature.
~ I'm really glad I saved that old training guide.
~ And if there's anything better than a boy and his dog, it could only be two boys and their dog:
