1 dog going on a cross country bicycle tour

Next month a little dog named Petunia, and her human, will be leaving their hometown in New Jersey, by bicycle, and heading to Virginia to start cycling Adventure Cycling Association’s TransAmerica route all the way to Astoria, Oregon! A journey of over 4,000 miles, the duo will be documenting their travels and turning them into a documentary. According to this adventurous dog’s human, “Petunia is seat belted into her dog pod via a chest harness that has a seatbelt low in the front, and another one on the back that prevents her from getting too far out when she’s enjoying the fresh air. She likes to ride and hasn’t tried to jump out. She has a special signal for when she needs a potty break (and she’s pretty regular so I can anticipate break times mostly).” It’s clear that this pup was born to ride! [Read more…]

Adventures in Dog-Sitting

Tuesday 02.28.2012 , Posted by

The video follows a young dog named Lemon through a fun-filled adventure all over Cape Town, meeting new canine and human friends, soaking up the sun, and splashing around at the beach.
