    Lost Barley stuff

    Barley lost his favorite toy, a reddish rubber ball shaped sort of like a turnip, somewhere between the Beer Garden and the Vendor Buildings.

    I also misplaced a red heavy canvas leash about four feet long. It's my fave for maneuvering him thru crowds. It may have been left behind when I pulled into the bike washing station to hose him down when he was having trouble with the heat, or by the Autocomm install tent. Here's a pic of them both.



    Please PM me if you've found either. I'll pay postage and send you a care package of gourmet coffee as thanks.

    Pete....good luck with getting Barley's things returned. You've probably already checked with lost and found but it's worth a try if you haven't.

    I really enjoyed meeting you and Barley in the one of the vendor bldgs Thusday. What a great riding partner you have there. Safe travels back home.

    +1! Great to meet you and Barley! Barley is a real trooper! Good luck finding the favorite items. Hope to see you two around in New England.

    Smile Barley's Leash

    Pete, some good news for you, sorta.

    I was chairman of Communications/ Lost and Found. Indeed, Barley's leash was returned to Lost and Found and we had it waiting. At the end of the rally all items not claimed are boxed and sent back to the MOA Headquarters. The downer is that it will take a little time for the staff to get the semi unloaded.

    I would suggest to you that you contact the MOA staff and alert them to be on the lookout for the red leash in the "Lost and Found" box.

    Glad to be of help.

    Thanks, Bill. By the time I noticed it was missing the Sedalia PD had taken over. I love that leash, so will be sending the MOA some coffee!

    Thanks again. Pete

    I hope you get Barley's gear back.

    On a more positive note, I think I saw your bike in the AutoComm area. Does this mean that Barley can now tell you when he has to take a pit-stop?

    You laugh, but I was actually wondering if I could rig a small speaker for him! Nah, we were getting a set of those fantastic Skene P3s installed on the back of the tub. Love those things!

    Have you ever considered getting Barley a chill out vest? Would that work on a dog, Peter?

    I did, but unless he sits up he gets no evaporative cooling and it just acts as another insulating layer to keep his body heat in. If I wet him and he sits up, he sheds heat but his head is in direct sunlight. I might go with Hannigan's ragtop. It would keep the sun off him, but with the side windows removed he'd still get the breeze.

    He was so glad to be home that he offered no protest when Rusty jumped into the hack and made himself at home!

    I want to thank Tammy from the MOA HQ for returning the leash my silly human misplaced in Sedalia. It was my favorite leash, and I'm very grateful for its safe delivery.

    Probably not. That location is not dog friendly.

    Barbie and I have missed a few rally trips because of the NO DOG policy too. Do these people think people who travel with their pets don't know how to properly control or clean up after the pet?

    I enjoyed talking to Barley at the rally. Barbie's dog fits into an infant carrier; hope they get to meet in the future.

    As someone who co-chairs a rally with a no dog policy this is specified in the contract to use the site. In other words it is out of our hands.
