I did it!

Ever since I've had my first dog, Bear, I have always wanted a "dog" cart for my bike. So with Kody I was determined to make this happen. I bought a $40 2-kid cart from Craigslist and had my brother modify it to fit his over-sized ass.

Here's his on-again off-again Daddy attaching it to the free bike i found on a walk one day:


"what's goin' on? You ain't putting me in THAT are you???"


Oh yes we aaaaarre....(as if he weren't embarrassed enough to be seen with Mommy in her Costco jammy bottoms : )

And he's OFF!





Look how unbelievably cute he is! He got out twice but he at least did it. My purpose for the cart is to be able to take him when we do our long bike rides. he'll run till he's exhausted and then i'll throw him in the cart to rest.

Can you tell I'm in love?

thanks Kevin and Eric for making my idea unfold!

oh and thanks to eric for finishing the project of ceiling fan and recessessed lighting...looks good huh?

you crack me up. those pictures are hysterical. i hope he learns to pick his tail up off the asphalt. marty and i have a recumbent (which means you sit as though you're in a chair and your legs pedal in front of you) tandem bike. it's pretty dorky looking and to make matters worse, i want to get this for our kitty http://www.petexpressions.com/wicrbafordoa.html

and who is going to ride your bike and drag you AND the dog around when you get tired from dragging around a big dog on your bike?

thats your brother? I thought he was the boyfriend...I am all confused...but the cart thing is smart...I had a wimerainer ( I thought that if I typed fast it would spell itself) that I had to excercise with my car it ran so much.

No cart for my dog! She would bail everytime she saw a dog, cat, rabbit,etc. and go after it!

OMG!! What an awesome idea. Simon would never go for it. He'd be out of that thing as soon as he saw a squirrel, rabbit, skateboarder, roller blader, another bicycle, motorcycle, scooter, dog, cat, I think you get the idea. Bro did a great job with the lights. Looks fab!

That is the cutest darn thing ever! Adding a 100 lb load to your bike will get you in shape pretty quick. I’d like to get one of those for Dexter, he’s only about 45 lb so I probably could fit him in a regular size kid one.

that is a fantastic room. And I think Kody is just a wee bit embarrassed by that cart. But I'm sure he'll love it when his little paws give out!

yeah for you & Kody - you've been planning this for a while! I remember your comment when I took the girls out with the bike last summer. I bet it's lots of fun.
