And some beg to try it out.”As a conversation starter, it’s even better than a puppy,” Goebel said.They made their first sale at a farmer’s market in Northfield on Saturday and hope to open a kiosk in the Ogilvie Transportation Center within the next two weeks. In the meantime, they’ll keep riding.
