It’s amazing that 26 days have gone by on this blog without mention of my dog. Meet Zane Underfoot:
[Ok, apologies for the silly dog video, but I couldn’t find an adorable picture handy and something possessed me to push record the other morning at the park.]
Anyway, Zane’s pretty talented as you can see. He sits, he fetches, he wags, he can even run beside my bicycle on a leash … mostly in a straight line (we haven’t crashed yet). But while he can play fetch all day long, he gets pretty worn out running by my bike after several blocks.
I used to take Zane everywhere in the car. Now he stays home a lot more. And cries about it.
So I’m contemplating dog trailers. I’m laughing at the thought of hauling around my 80+ pound dog, but I’m so sad leaving him behind that I might be ready to embrace the absurdity.
Anyone have any good, realistic ideas of how to cart around a dog with a bike? Would he really fit in a bike trailer? Would he be comfortable in an enclosed space? If it was open, would he stay in? Would there be room on the bike path for whatever contraption I end up hauling?
