    I bring my dog with me everywhere. He comes to work with me, and is by my side after as well. I wasn't getting enough use out of my TW because there was no way to bring my dog. So I created the buddy system! Made it out of a rugged recycling bin, added some plywood, and swimming noodles around the rim for added comfort. My dog Blue wears a full body harness that is teathered down so he can't fall out. Paint job turned out pretty good too! See attached picture to check it out!

    Nobody mentioned it is a nice dog too! Blue must be a very good companion for marshman to create that special Buddy System.

    That's awesome. How heavy is Blue? I'd love to do something similar for Daphne, but she's 70lbs, so I'm not sure if she's too big or not.

    Excellent Job and how cool is it to have a dog that rides on your bike.
