    Riding with a lab mix??

    Been searching the 'net for a while looking for a decent sized dog carrier, without luck

    Just wondering if anyone has seen folks riding with a decent sized dog - like 70 -80 lbs? Or know anyone who has made a rig to tote Fido around?

    Thx

    My lab liked the Flexit sidecar I used to have, but she is a purebred,

    I always thought Labs, though docile, were smart enough to ride their own bikes?

    Well, you have to remember she's a MIX! Me thinks she has had thoughts of driving 4 wheel (cuz she has 4 legs?)vehicles around, as she will often sit in the drivers seat and watch for my return. If only she could reach the pedals .. .. ..

    I remember those days - sorta. Must have been a bad mix if you didn't go back for more . . .

    Saw this at the Gillette rally...

    Don't know the owner, however. If you proceed, you might want to be mindful of hearing loss (the dog), but i don't know if there is such a thing as doggie earplugs. I have a friend who rides with his dog (on the back of his GS, on a carpet- never fallen off), and the dog loves it, but it's hearing has suffered some.
