Although Stella has many problems, which I have discussed and documented here and here, there is one thing that she's really good at--drafting. This is an activity that weird "dog people" do with their large breed dogs (Rottweilers, Swissys, Newfoundlands, St. Bernards, etc.). I am not quite weird enough to join any drafting clubs or enter Stella in competitions. I am just weird enough to walk her around the neighborhood pulling an all-terrain Li'l Red Wagon filled with groceries, water jugs, bricks, my wife, puppies, other people's kids.
Since Butterbean and Cobra are still too small to ride safely in the Li'l Red Wagon, I had to figure out a way to attach Stella's drafting rig to the Cougar II (rrraaawwr) stroller. The versatile Cougar II can be used as a stroller, jogger, bike trailer, or cross-country ski trailer. Somehow they neglected to offer a kit for hooking it up to draft animals. So I had to McGyver it.
