In a world divided by politics, masks, vaccines, race, and more, the one thing that we can all agree on is an animal's cuteness, especially puppies. Even if you're a "cat person" there's no way you can't look at a cute canine and argue its level of cute. Let's call most animals what they are, heartwarming.

Sometimes animals doing "human things" is even cuter than them playing with their favorite toy. If this were not true there would be so many pictures and calendars of pets portraying humans. And, as much as I don't understand it, sometimes it is cute when they're dressed in little sweaters or sports jerseys. (I can't believe I actually admitted that.)

In 2021, that phrase should read, "person's best friend" if we were to be politically correct. But, "man" is just short for "human", at least in my head. I spotted one of "man's best friend" at the drive-thru of the McDonald's in Byron, Illinois a few weeks ago. What I saw was so surprising I had to whip a u-turn to get another look.

What I spotted from a distance was a beautiful golden doodle riding side-by-side with his owner, who was riding a scooter. You might be wondering how this was possible. "Was the dog on the back of the scooter?" would be a plausible question but the answer is no. This golden doodle was sitting in a little sidecar, attached to the scooter.
