Cheers Ian
Simply amazing.

I saw a guy in town who had a dog on the back of a small motorcycle with no lead or anything holding him on. Said he just jumped up there one day and has never fallen off.

Here is a cheap DIY Dog Helmet I am in the process of making. It cost me about $5 bucks to purchase the main body (a pair of old hockey knee pads). I didn't have a sewing machine handy to do my own stitching, so there was a price to pay to get a local upholsterer to sew on new binding around the edges of both the helmet and the vest. I didn't take any pics of the dogs in the hack yet. I didn't have time to clip off all the threads left by the upholstery fellow. (His work was not very good and I would not recommend him at all). If you have a sewing machine, then the actual cost is just for the pads and some bias edging tape. They actually will look much better when the GEAR logos are removed and the helmets are painted. This is just a simple DIY project, so if you wanna' spend a lot more bucks to get a helmet that is really only good for photo ops, then have at it. I am not sure if this will work on a large dog or even a really small one, as my dogs are both medium-sized dogs. The inner pad can be left out to drop the helmet down further onto the dog's head. The vest works best if the small end is toward the dog's neck and larger end to the back. I believe I filmed both ways, as I was trying to see what worked when I shot the pics. This does not show the helmet with the GEAR logos removed. I did not trim the foam close to the helmet on the first try, as I wanted the upholsterer to have enough room to get his presser foot down on his machine. The foam is easy to cut, easy to work with and makes the final product have more cushion and support. It will be a warm setup in the winter. I didn't have any Goggles or Doggles to take pics with at the time and I was trying to get out at least a first trial video of how to make the DIY project. Hope someone may give it a try and find it useful.

It ia actually a work in progress. I may add staps the next time, but I will first have to find another pair of hockey knee pads at the thrift store.

Update: When I do another pair, I'll be sure to use an adjustable strap, as it pulls the ear pieces down snug to each side of the dog's head and makes the helmet stay on much better than the large pices I had sewn on with Velcro on this pair. Bicycle helmets are incredibly cheap at thrift stores. I picked up a pair for under $5 bucks and removed the straps to use on this project, but I decided to use the larger strap from the original hockey knee pad, instead. Next time I'll know better. I'll probably swap these out later, too. I took some video, but my SD card is giving me trouble on the download. :-(

OK, it is not a dog in a hack, but check out the dog on a bike.

Wrapped up making a DIY bar mount for my sidecar today and got to enjoy a quick ride with the dogs. I have some tweeking to do on it, as I did get a bit of rattle from the GoPro inside the clear plastic housing, but I'll remedy that easily. It was a nice day to just get out and test ride things and the dogs enjoyed it, too.

It is really nice to be out of the triple-digit heat down here in Texas these days. :-)

Those little guys must like scaring me. It looked like they were trying their best to relocate from the seat to the step for a more adventurous ride. Good thing you've got a harness there.

Actually, they are quite secure and Murph has been riding that way for about 3 years, now. Dusty has been riding that way for over a year, now. Dusty sits to the inside of the hack and they are both tethered, although you probably can't see it in the clip. I can zip along at all speeds and feel pretty comfortable that they are not going to slingshot out. Murph has always prefered to reside with his face out the "dog hatch" door. When they get excited and start barking, it is usually because we are either passing by a jogger or passing by someone on the sidewalk. They also both have a chest harness set up they often wear, but not in the film clip I posted. I have another DIY harness setup idea that I need to make up for them, but it is on my things to do list and that list is sort of lengthy at the moment. :-)

Dusty did bust a harness snap once and jumped out as we were riding. We were off-road when some rabbits shot out in the trail ahead of us. Dusty broke the snap and hopped out to chace them. Scared the heck out of me, as we were going a pretty fast clip at the time. That is part of the reason I position her to the inside of the hack seating most of the time, but the snaps have been replaced on these tethers. They are huge and cinch down to lock into place.

A very short vid (click on the pic above) of our new pup Lilly on her first "ride". As with our dog before we are starting her out with a short spin without any scary motor noise. The clip has no sound so you will have to make your own "pup pup pup" noise as you watch.

Jerry's final ride

Jerry my springer spanial was the perfect hack dog. He knew how to pose for pictures at traffic lights and he would bark when the light turned green telling me it was time to get moving. Late this summer he was having problems walking, the vet checked him and said he had a very bad type of cancer in his shoulder bone. They gave him two weeks tops before the pain would be too bad for medicine. My Ural was having motor problems, but I said he was getting one last ride even if it destoryed the motor. He deserved one last ride. My boys came over on their mopeds and set up a camera some we could have some memories of the thing he enjoyed. This was his next to the last ride. The final one was his last trip to the vet. Rest in Peace Jerry

Rest in Peace, Jerry.

We should all enjoy the simple, happy moments of life as well as our dogs can. Even under the best of conditions, they don't have alot of years, but I think that they enjoy their short time much more than we do ours.
