These two, just as the two before them, go to the Vet routinely and after all the years of their riding with me, none have had any eye problems.
That's awesome. They really seem to enjoy the ride. Those tails do wag something fierce.

I have to be careful at some intersections, as people lose their focus when turning and suddenly see the dogs in the hack. I have had a couple of them almost wreck when they did that.
Yeah. I didn't think you noticed while you were riding, as I didn't see you look that direction. I thought you may have noticed after reviewing your video. I did see you pet the one puppy closest to you.

Like say, the test was just for anti-vibration of the camera mount.
I didn't really notice any vibration that I can recall. So the mount seems good. Good job.

No. I noticed their tethers. They hang down the front of their chests. It seems your one dog likes to look back, whereas your other dog likes to look front. Whatever makes them happy. They sure do seem to enjoy it for sure.
