    walkie dog

    For those of you who use the walkie dog, are you prepared for failure? I was riding today and all of a sudden I noticed that Briar was running up near my font wheel, jsut cruising along! The rope part had broken. I always carry an emergency leash and today, I am glad I did! We were only 2 miles from home but if I didn't have that extra leash, it would have been a real challenge getting the dog and my bike home!

    I walk them them on the bike the same way I do on the ground. Leash, correct what they do, they stay next to me, etc. etc.

    Briar is a cute name!
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.

    I tried cycling with my dog Orson around the neighborhood once. It ended up with me on my face on the pavement. My pup is way too easily distracted. I love to hike with him though.

    Gordy is terrified of being attached to my bike, so I gave up on using the walky-dog.

    Briar is a FREAK about "his" bike. I can't do any maintenence on it without him getting antsy. If I stand too close to the bike in the yard, he thinks we are going riding! He feels the same way about my road bike and I have to sneak out without him so he doesn't drive everyone in the house crazy while I am gone! He is a biker to the core!
