Pet Stroller allows man to shop with pet, from MyrtleBeachOnline.com

Here's an interesting article for you from MyrtleBeachOnline.com: An Asheboro, NC man has made many friends by spending his leisure time in a local mall along with his chihuahua. He strollers through the mall with his dog, Daisy, in a pet stroller!

You can read the entire article, but here are some highlights:
Shoppers and mall walkers who have never seen the pair often do a double-take when they notice the pooch perched on the bench next to John or standing on her hind legs to peer out of her doggie stroller parked at John's side. They leave smiling.

The day after Holyfield bought her, he took Daisy with him to the mall... The first thing he did was ask permission from the mall manager. Holyfield said he was told it was OK to bring his dog as long as she was not allowed to run loose.

A small airbrushed license plate that says "Daisy's Ride" made at a mall store is attached to the front of the stroller.

Skunks in a pet stroller

Skunks are amnog the hippest exotic pets around, these days. Only about 5,000 people keep skunks as pets these days, and the number is growing.

But how do you get skunks around, you may ask? With a pet stroller, of course. That's what Sharon Hradisky of Jamesburg, NJ does, according to an article in the Home News Tribune. Hradisky takes her four skunks for walks in their pet stroller.

Okay, so let's answer the obvious questions: Yes, skunks can be de-scented. Yes, there are breeders. No, skunks as pets are not legal in every state. Skunks are a bit more expensive to keep than more typical pets. And they live eight to 14 years.

And, apparently, they love pet strollers! You can see the entire line of quality pet strollers available at JustPetStrollers.com. And to read more about skunks as pets, check out the Home news Tribune article.
