Reader’s report: Bicycle customized for three (and ideas for motorbike carriers)

Reader Liberty posted this picture on Dog Jaunt’s Facebook page on September 21, and before the pixels had a chance to settle I begged her to write a guest post about what she’d done to create such a gorgeous and safe-looking bike system for her and her two dogs:

Breathtaking, right?

She kindly agreed, wrote her post immediately, and here it is, at too darned long-last (the photo captions are mine). Please note, up front, that the silver Road Hound carrier  … Read more

Chloe’s Clicks: This week’s best dog travel links

This first link too should have been in last week’s Chloe’s Clicks, but it got lost in my in-box (“Hi, I’m Mary-Alice, and I have an in-box problem”).

Dog eye protection while biking, motorcycling

I thought that dog goggles were a gimmick until I read that search and rescue dogs wear them to protect their eyes from debris and toxic substances. I realize that Chloe’s not going to be in that kind of environment, but she will be biking with us, and some dogs ride motorcycles or scooters with their owners, and in situations like those (lots of wind and road grit) a dog’s eyes need to be protected. So I bought a pair  … Read more
