Of all my daughter's animals, I'm most fond of Pierre. He's quiet, cute and small enough to fit in my backpack, important because I opted to ride my road bike today on what might be one of the last warm, dry days of the year. Because I had limited space, this was the first time I interfered with my daughter's wishes, choosing not to take Gus — maybe tomorrow buddy.

Another stunning sunrise greeted the morning commuters.

While I photographed the rising sun, Pierre opted for a quick sit on the handlebars.

Not to be outdone by CG, Pierre, some guys from work and I took the bus to Pike Market for lunch — for those who care (no one I'm sure) this means I am no longer a Seattle bus virgin.

Lunch: Uli's Famous Sausages. On the way out one of the guys from work suggested Pierre sit atop Rachel, the Pike Market piggy bank — I concurred.

Thanks Pierre!
