that is a bishon freize, just a little squirt of a dog, might weigh 5 pounds. He belongs to a neighborhood teenager who named him KILLER, we call him sweetheart.

I thought so, my wife and I own two of the little monsters.

I have a little daughter named Sasha, and my wife owns the boy, Neko.

Despite what you see on those dog awards shows with perfectly coiffed bichons obeying your every whim, we have raised ours as terriers.

Pictures to follow.

indeed. I am not too into the ricer scene, but I like sport bikes. Buell is kinda a "do it all" bike, long cruises in comfort, but sporty and nimble...and they sound great!

I like the streetfighter look though, really growing on me.

I would ride something like this, in a heartbeat

You wouldn't believe what one son rides! A 1980 Honda scooter and looks like a lawnmower motor on it. He doesn't care. He is 6'4" and says he has plenty people ask where he got it. Also has Baja (sp?) gets mad cause I don't spell or say the brand right. Anyway when he first got is his friends told him he looked like rather weird. When gas got to be over $4 never said a word. Now they are all trying to sell their big motors. Oh, everyone likes to ride the bike to work when weather permits. Still have to put up with people saying comments and driving crazy. Do most scooters have clutch? I resent the fact that on weekends he stays out after 12. Only God can protect him in the dark. Everybody likes to have extra drinks on the weekends.

TATTRAT you drive after dark too?
