You get more smiles per mile,with your doggie.
Definitely more smiles per mile with the mutt.

Dawson is such a little ham that when we stop at traffic lights he scans the intersection to see who is going to take his picture & usually poses for it, I have created a monster! On our AK ride we were about half way through when it finally became clear to Don & I, we were not on a cool northern adventure, we were just roadies for the rock star dog.

Only been riding with Dawson for about a year now & already if I ride without him it just isn't the same.

On bikes, I've logged 40,000 miles with Pugsley, and coudn't imagine leaving home without him, cage or bike. I totally can relate to all of your comments.

I've seen a lot of motorcycle pet carriers, but never one exactly like that. However, at a dog show last year, a triker friend bought one similar to that for carrying her dog into PetSmart, etc. She uses a TBag pet carrier to transport her Weiner Dog on her trike.

I wish that I could take my dog, but since he weighs in at 80 muscular, stubborn lbs the only options are a trailer or a sidecar, neither of which I'm really keen on. Some have taught their dogs to actually ride the motorcycle but I would never forgive myself if something happened to him doing that.

I carry my 30# Pug on the pillion seat, harnessed and double strapped to the armrests. He has never attempted to jump off. We've logged over 40,000 miles. I saw a guy with a fully grown Yellow Lab on the pillion seat a few years ago.

Pugsley looks like the same kinda character, sure doesn't take them long to become neccesity for any trip does it. Lately mine has become a bit too smart azz on the bike, currently working through a bit of a battle on who is the boss & if he really has to actually sit down on the bike, lately it seems he prefers to put the paws on the left bar or gas tank & look over the windshield cuz he's a bigshot & has this riding thing figured out already, lol, you know, the over condfident "I got this" stage almost all "riders" have to go through, just part of the deal I guess. I get that "what's you problem" look when I make him sit back down, that coupled with the recent behavior at the dog park & I think we have reached the "terrible two's" now, he just turned 1 the end of Feb so it is to be expected, little brat is currently the equivalent of a 17 yr old boy, knows it all, listens to no one, & mounts anything that holds still for more than a couple seconds, little spaz, going to test my patients for a little while now but he will come around, just take a little time.

Best damn co-pilots anyone could ask for, always up for the next adventure, could care less what we eat, or where we sleep, it's all about seeing what is around the next bend. If you would ask him it is HIS motorcycle & I am just the chauffer.

While riding to Canada & Alaska we rode with a buddy of mine, if I dropped back a little I would get this look ahead, look back at me drill, as if to tell me hurry up Don is leaving us behind, If I was leading & Don was following he would keep looking over my shoulder to check on Don & I would get the same thing if Don fell very far back, smart little buggers & at least mine is quick to get demanding if hw thinks I'm doing it wrong, lol

Look into some gear, maybe a back pack kinda thing for you & a good harness for him & tether them together as a safety belt kinda thing. With a little work you may be able to come up with something that lets him learn to ride without any real risk of him or you getting hurt, start slow on residential streets or parking lots & gradually work your way up. Took me about a month to get things worked out so we were comfortable & safe, then it took about a week on the road being patient on the way to Washington just watching his behavior & only riding the miles he was good with for the day, by the time we got back from Alaska 2 months later it was all old hat for him. At about 4 1/2 months old Dawson rode from Prudoe Bay back to Fairbanks in one day, 500+ miles mostly dirt, some 14 hrs in the saddle, by Fairbanks we were both ready to get off the bike. With a little work & patients in the beginning, as long as the dog is the good side-kick type I think most any of them can ride & ride well.

BTW, completely understand the "if anything happened to him" thing, at 4 months old my worries for keeping Dawson healthy had me keeping tabs on where the nearest airport that I could charter a plane & get to a vet in Fairbanks or Dawson was at all times on the Dempster & Dalton highways. Keeping tabs on the closest available Vet was always a concern with a 3-5 month old puppy in that country, never know when they are going to eat something they shouldn't, or have a reaction to a bug bite or what. On the South Canol road some kind of litte bug bit up his belly & the bites were turning red, I had Benedryl with me but kept me watching close anyway, & if anyone is unaware, the vet told me with benedryl the dose is 1mg/pound of dog weight, so the typical 25mg pill takes care of a 25 lb dog.

Yes, these dogs are "characters", which is an understatement. I started Pugsley out at age six months, on an old Kawasaki Concours. He rode in a little toolbox on the pillion, and was strapped to me. He loved it from the very beginning.

I cannot imagine riding without this little character. As I type this, he is under my desk with a paw on my foot. Never found that kind of devotion and love from former girlfriends. I think that I've seen the light.

Looks like a repurposed baby carrier to me. Have you checked at a baby goods store?

Back in Highschool I got a Collie/Sheperd mix for a GF, took him to work a few times & very quickly the dog came to me instead of her, this caused tears & all that with the GF, so I backed away from the dog a bit, watched her turn a great little dog into a spastic out of control little brat, then a few years later bail on me, then the dog. Wrong priorities on my part, should have kept the dog & ditched the GF, lol, way more loyal, & way less headaches.

Several GF's & one wife later I decided to get Dawson, guess who happily did the whole Alaska ride with me while the GF decided to pass on just Flying into Anchorage to tag along for an easy scenic week in AK & Canada riding & then sent the Dear John e-mail while I was on the Dalton? This time I got it right, lmao, GF's come & go, the mutt is in for the long haul, he deserves the same loyalty from me.

I laughed like hell, part of the way up the Vancouver Island we stopped at a Walmart, Don went inside to pick up a few things while I stayed with the bikes & Dawson for a water & potty break. Un-benouced to me there was a female Wally World employee on break quietly observing, who commented from accross the parking lot, "if you fuss over your GF like you do over that dog she must be very happy" to which I responded, "If I could ever find a GF as loyal as this dog, I probably would", she laughed & said that was fair, lol
