Greymobile

Male human has an SUV, a Bakfiets cargo bike. It doubles as a Greymobile. At first, I was a bit wary, but when humans added a soft blanket and gave me a few treats I happily jumped in. Here the female human is attaching my harness to the bike.
We started off slowly and I got loads of praise and treats for good behaviour. (Food! For nothing! All I had to do was to rest my legs and eat!)
I told female human to hand me some more treats. Greymobile has a well-trained cabin crew.
In a few minutes I was all set for real action!
This is fun! I can enjoy the view and watch people, and male human is doing all the hard work!
"Get off?? Why??!? I'll never walk again!"
For those concerned about safety: when we first tried this last autumn, we didn't have a blanket. Tara was scared of jumping to the box and obviously refused to lie down. With the blanket she gets comfortable and we are able to attach her harness to the bike. We still need to experiment with the length of the leash: too long and she's able to jump off the bike and most likely injure both herself and her human. Of course, we'll drive slowly and carefully and never forget the fact that she is a sighthound with a keen interest in small furry creatures...

Edit: check out this adorable tiny greyhound!

Näyttää mainiolta! Minäkin voisin mammia kyydissä rauhassa katselemassa maisemia, muutamalla herkkupalalla :)

oh no. Now Sabrina and Apollo will demand being squired around in a similar bike/wagon thingie. (By the way, are these the same sort of things the last Amazing Race had the racers use in ... hmm, where was it, the Netherlands?)

Lovely photos of Tara, as usual!!

Oh my, Greymobile! Now all you need is matching masks & cloaks for the grey and the human plus a really cathy theme music. Then it's off to save the poor and the desperate. Like for instance, rescuing homeless sausages...

Seriously though: cool!
