Mr. B Goes Skateboarding

Even though Mr. B is 8 years old, he is one energetic pup. Though our daily walks are enough for Ms. M, sometimes they are just not enough for Mr. B. So whenever the weather is cool, we try to go skateboarding together around the city. When we first started, it was bit of a harrowing experience, because Mr. B would try to cross in front of me, but after some practice, he now sticks to one side. However, there are things that will catch his attention and I will have to be aware of when he will suddenly pull.
I use a harness and place the leash on the back part of the harness and we stick to side roads that have a lot less traffic.
Now that we have the Go Pro camera and chest strap, Mr. B can take videos from the pooches view. We just need to figure out how to make it stay steady.

that is so hilarious. his next trick should be galloping while keeping his back as smooth as glass so he can get a better video!

that must be what it would be like if Mr. B. had a saddle and gave away doggie-rides!

I love the sound of skateboard wheels on pavement. Brings me back to my glory days.

Great video! Would come in handy for sobriety testing - "How many Mr. B's do you see?"

So cool, Mr. B!!

How cool! Thanks for sharing!

This is so cool! And so much fun to watch! I've noticed how many bully type dogs seem to be able to skateboard with ease. They must have the perfect balance. You can tell how much he loves it.

I, on the other hand, lack all coordination for such a skill. So I am very jealous!

Mr. B doesn't look or act a day over 5!

Something is fishy Mr. B, your Paw hogged the skateboard

I love this! The pictures are great and the video is fun! I love seeing Mr B's ears flap as he runs. hahaha.
It would be cool (and expensive) to get a second camera and attach it to the board facing Mr B so you could get video of him running along!

I agree.. the flopping ears are adorable!

You should teach Mr. B how to skateboard, it isn't as difficult as it sounds and it's insanley cute.

Roo said...

Mr. B is too cool for words :) He runs so fast he makes me dizzy! I smiled through the whole video :D Between pink sneakers and floppy happy ears who could not? :) What a fun post!

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Awesome video! Where can I get a harness like that for my pittie? I want to take him biking, but most harnesses don't fit his big chest.
