My favorite new activity is bicycling with mom! Mom bought a WalkyDog attachment which has a leash and attaches to her bike. It is adjusted just for my height. She attaches the leash to a harness. The harness I have isn't ideal. It's better when I'm riding in the Ural with dad because it attaches at the back. And that's where I need it to keep me in a seated position. The new harness has the ring in the middle of my back. I should get that in the mail in just days.
Mom goes slower than me, BOL!!! She is still testing it out and doesn't want to put me in any danger. It keeps me the perfect distance away from the bike so we haven't had any mishaps. The bicycle has some kind of 3 speed internal gear system inside the rear hub, so that I can't get caught up in the mechanism. We have really wide bike lanes in our neighborhood and I'm attached so that I'm between the bike and the sidewalk. Mom thinks of everything!
I did see a cat today that I wanted to chase but mom sped up a little and told me to leave it, and I had to trot to keep up with her. Yesterday I was interested in some squirrels in a tree, but quickly learned that I can't pull away. That makes mom feel safer. I'm looking forward to more rides! Woo hoo, it's fun!
Sounds like fun Finnegan! I am too small to run beside the bike so I ride in my basket on the front handle bars. I am also strapped in and I have a roll cage over me. Our Mommy's do think of all the safety issues.
Oh wow Finnegan, that sure does sound like alot of fun!
