    Does your LBS have a pet or a mascot?

    Seems like a lot of bike riders have pets. How about bike shops?

    I love my LBS. They have a fountain with fake frogs in it. Not sure of a pet or mascot. Was there yesterday to get a barrel adjuster for the rear deraileur of youngest sons bike. It had a cheap plastic thing in there that broke when a friend ran into him. (Ryan tends to stop abruptly, and without warning anyone) Broke the non adjustable plastic ferule and bent the deraileur hanger. Got it sorted out and it shifts again, but the chain contacts the frame when on the smallest cog now. I think the washers were on wrong originally and I need to space the wheel over a bit. Ran out of time to do that last night before we left for a Super Bowl Party.

    2MB, you should take Couch there sometime instead of Bailey as it appears that your LBS is pet friendly. He would have fun with Mr. Jingles and he is pretty much housebroken.

    He's also mesmerized by laser pointers.

    My (formerly) LBS in Green Bay had a friendly cat who has since retired from Meet & Greet. She's now just a regular house cat.

    Will he fit in the trike basket? Do I have to stop once in a while so he can take a bathroom break?

    Yes, if he's not wearing his Van's. And he also barks when you yell "Pass". But bring an extra bag, or try to get him to go "off-trail".

    3 cats, the owner, and me. I'm not sure which you'd call a pet and which you'd call a mascot...

    Universal Cycles has a retail location in Portland that has a room set aside for their kitties, all adopted from shelters. I sometimes go in to visit the cats and drool on bike parts- or vice versa.
    Aaron's Bicycle Repair in Seattle is home to Presta and Schrader:


    The shop where I got most of my experience had a shop cat, shared with the hardware store next door. When Tiger passed away, he got his story told in the LA Times:

    All my bikes.
