Put a Bird On It: Portlandia Flavored Flair for Your Bike

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

 

Dimension bike bell

 Even the most humdrum old beater bike takes on new life with some clever accessorizing. If you're looking to add some flair to your ride, check out these distinctive products. Ranging from cuteness overload to elegant simplicity, they all add a distinctly Portlandia-flavored personality to your two-wheeled steed. 

Dimension Woodpecker Bell
Tired of the same old plain bicycle bells? Check out the Woodpecker Bell, featuring a faux wood grain bell and adorable white woodpecker hammer. Just a flick of your thumb on Woody's tail strikes the bell, alerting other hip and hipster riders that you're on their left. Available locally at Universal Cycles.

Sweet Tweet Bird Light

Sweet Tweet Bicycle Light

The Sweet Tweet bike light is just about the cutest bike light out there. This functional LED light is powered by three AAA batteries, and while it's not the most powerful or long-lasting light out there, you (or your kiddo) will enjoy major style points with the Sweet Tweet perched on your bars. The light also integrates a safety horn, which loudly tweets your presence to the world (but it won't post status updates to your Twitter feed, sorry).

Luna

Breed: Pitbull, American/Mix

Gender: Female

Age: Young

Hi my name is Luna so pleased to meet you. My family was unable to keep me so here I am starting over. I am a young lady only 1 years old and weighing in at 52 lbs. I have a lot to learn but my heart is open and I am ready to improve. I have a bit of a reputation for knocking down youngsters so if you have a young family be prepared to get my manners polished quickly or the youngsters will start avoiding me.
Won't you ask about me today?

Monkey

Breed: Domestic medium hair/ mix

Gender: Female

Age: Adult

Hey there, my name is Monkey and I am about 10 years old. I came to the shelter with a nasty wound on my leg, but after some surgery and time out in a foster home I am ready to move on to a family that will love me forever. I am a friendly girl, on my terms of course. I prefer to have all four paws on solid footing, so I'm not the kind to be toted around in your arms, but I really like to socialize and get my share of petting. They think it was a raccoon that got the best of me, so consider keeping me inside only, where the raccoons can't get me.

Sheldon

Breed: Pitbull, American/ Mix

Gender: Male

Age: Young

Hi my name is Sheldon and I'm a white and black male Pitbull mix about 10 months and I weight 55 lbs. I'm part puppy, part silly young teenager, not entirely sure about the world and my place in it just yet. I'm active and looking for a home with no small animals. The shelter wants my new owners to take me to an obedience class that uses reward based training methods so I can continue learning to be a good companion in my new home. They are offerring a discounted adoption if you come with proof of pre paid classes. I came to the shelter with a torn ACL, which has been repaired but still in my recovery. My recovery will include restricted activity for 6-8 weeks, which means crating and leash walks only! If you are interested in viewing me please ask the information desk.

Maple

Maple is a plump and lovely tabby girl with white accents. She is affectionate and calm, though can be a bit reserved with strangers and new places. That sure sounds smart to us, a girl can't be too careful! Maple enjoys her feathery toys and catnip, and likes to top off playtime with a nice soft lap and some rom-com on tv. Maple is 10-years-old and already spayed. Talk to your adoption counselor about introducing this delicious treat to your family!

Chewy

Breed: Chihuahua/ Mix

Gender: Male

Age: Adult

I am a studious and quiet sort of gentleman that is seeking the same in a new home. I would like nothing more than a comfortable lap, quiet strolls in your neighborhood and to be your snuggle buddy. I would prefer a home with no kids or at least respectful older kids and adults for that matter, who aren't interested in disturbing me. You see, I have some skin issues that are making me uncomfortable and a little intolerant of things like touching my tail and looking at my teeth. I however very much enjoy a good scratch along my back! With a good quality food and monthly flea control, my itchies will go away so my hair and skin can improve. Do we sound like a match?!

Jasmine

Breed: Domestic Shorthair/ Mix

Gender: Female

Age: Adult

Jasmine is a sweet girl who has overcome some major medical issues. She came into the shelter with neurological issues and unable to walk after presumeably being hit by a car.. She has been with me close to 4 months, in which I've gotten very attached. Each animal I fall in love with and keep is one less foster I can bring into my home, so I decided to be fair to her, and the person waiting to make her the center of their universe. It's time to let her find that furever home. My family and I adore her. We have a funny name for her... When she was unable to walk and showed no emotion, I was laying with her and said; "come on Jazzy, make muffins or something." So the name Jazzy Mcmuffin was born, and that's what we call her, Jazzy Mcmuffin. It's so silly I know, but it makes us smile. She's super gorgeous, has the most beautiful eyes, and is a very calm kitty. She would prefer a quite home, with no children, due to her fragility and shy nature. She gets along with other cats just fine, but I don't think a home with dogs would be ideal for her. Jazzy is about 10 years old and is currently in foster care.

Age: Elderly 

Good day everybody! Miss Eliza here! I have come to find myself in quite the predicament and need your assistance! I am a lovely older lady in need of a new place to call home. A nice family had helped take care of me for a little while, but I couldn't stay forever. They did say that I was good with their children and cats in the home! I will let you know that dogs do scare me so maybe not a home with a dog? Sorry to be so particular, but us older ladies will do as we please! I am about 12 years old and spayed.

Big Bruce

Breed: Pitbull, American/ Mix

Gender: Male

Age: Adult

Hello, I am Big Bruce and I am one amazing dog. I am house trained and will let you know when I need to go out. I am perfectly kennel trained. I am a mature gentleman and won't eat your shoes - all that I ask is that you have a few bones and my blankie for me to suck on (yes I have a favorite blankie). I am quiet in the house. I enjoy car rides and running around in the back yard. I am a mellow guy, but I need to shed a few pounds and hope to go on walks more. I like to cuddle and don't know my own strength. I am about 5 years old and I weigh 115lbs.

Hi my name is Cee Cee Bo and my mom had to give me up when we became homeless. I lived with another cat and we got along fine. I was not so happy with the dog in my home.
