Default now I can take Morgan for a bike ride!

I picked up this burley kiddie bike trailer today at a thrift store for $20. I gutted the insides. I removed the seat and added a doggie bed. Now I can take Morgan with me when I ride.

I'll have to devise some sort of harness so she doesn't try and jump out.

I might see about getting some sheet aluminum from work tomorrow to make a proper floor. I'm not sure the canvas will hold up to doggie paws.

Ha! That's so cute! ^_^ she seems to like it too. Good idea about the harness, mine would definitely be jumping out

I just purchased my bike and bought the running dog tow leash. I havent gotten either yet waiting on them to be delivered. My friends bike with their golden in one of those but she is very calm and will sit and watch all day. I am hoping my new device will exercise mine to calmness..LOL

cool idea, maybe plywood instead of sheet metal? sheet metal will have sharp edges

I had the exact dame burley for my golden retriever, his arthritis was too bad for him to run next to the bike. I tried to put Aspen in it a couple of times, I attached a harness to her on a short enough lead that he couldnt jump out. She tried to jump out anyways and just ended up flipping the whole thing over and getting trapped underneath. She'd rather run next to the bike anyways!
