    Toby is adorable and the bike trailer looks great!
    I think I will by one, too, even though my husband thinks I must be going mad. It would just be so great to take the dogs somewhere else by bike in stead of the car

    Glad I could help, I'm sure your husband is saying to get off that crazy site LOL
    The one we have is a child's trailer that we modified. We took out the seats, measured a
    thick board to fit the bottom so its totally flat. Then stapled a yoga mat to
    the board so its soft. We placed a towel on top of that so he has even more
    cushion but it can be washed. We attached a rope from one side to the other. Used
    D-rings to hold a leash. Yesterday we bought a leash extension to use with the
    D-ring and will attach that to Tobys collar instead of using a rope to his collar.
    Our Peke Loved the air and just having his head on the edge of the trailer so we
    cut out the plastic on the sides of it. But Toby is too young yet to understand
    not to jump out so today we bought Mesh and will tightly velcro that to the
    trailer making it closed in again.
    You can buy a pet trailer also but for us at the time it was a lot cheaper to go with the child's trailer than a
    pet trailer. Its was still a lot cheaper even after the wood and such that we
    put in it. Its very solid and has gone on tons of trails with us.

    Adding 2 more pictures from today. We added mesh to the sides and he has a leash extension to the D-ring instead of a rope to his harness. He can lay down and sleep or move about.

    Thank you! Something I did not tell all of you was the trailer came with a long pole that has a flag on the top. We took the flag off and had a sign making shop put a logo on the flag. It read: Peke Power
    We had paw print put on the other side of it. It was too cute and is with our remembrance box of our Peke. We are trying to find another shop that carries flags so we can do the same for Toby. I have already been thinking of different sayings to put on it.
    The things we do to amuse ourselves and put our pets on a pedestal
