Bikes and dog baskets??

Found a nice dog coat? Found a cozy pub that's Schnauzer friendly or even a Schnauzer friendly B&B. Feel free to share it here. Basically anything that we would want to buy for our Schnauzer goes here.

Bikes and dog baskets??

Post by Oscar 12345 » 20 Jun 2019, 12:26

Every now and again I do come up with some ideas that I think might be good.... garage and storage room is full of hardly used products and provides evidence of this. Have recently found myself thinking that it would be a good idea to get a bike with a doggy basket on the front so that Otto and I can go for a ride on quiet roads. Be honest now, what do you think? Good idea or silly idea, not mentioned to OH yet as I know what his answer will be. =))

PS not been on a bike for 20 years :-\

Sounds like it would be a fun thing to try. If you do go ahead - you must post some pics or video.

OH wanted to do that with Barney but he was too big for the bike baskets. Yes specific ones do exist for dogs. I think you'd best get a bike first see how you like it :D

If you live in Lincolnshire brilliant idea anywhere else has hills not good =))

I had an image come in to my mind about this today Julie. It was of you free wheeling down the country lanes, with Otto gazing out of the basket, your legs off the pedals out on each side with Sacha Distel singing Raindrops Keep Falling on My 'Ed.

I had a chuckle to myself wondering how these things run through our heads :))

Sam =)) you missed the bit at the end where I casually turn my head to look at what Otto is barking at and end up ploughing into the back of something. Have been told there is no room in the garage for any more rubbish :(
