Pooches: Mr. B Goes Skateboarding

We know people have certain impressions of older dogs. Many people don't realize our very own Mr. B is nearly 10 years old, and he still loves going skateboarding with E. And of course, documenting it with his very own camera.
Even though Mr. B is almost 10 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.

Wow! I can't believe Mr. B is almost 10! He looks so good for his age! When I was looking to adopt, I was wanting an older dog, but (as you mentioned in your first post on this), they are actually hard to find! So Tess was only 2 when I brought her home, but luckily she was already practically an old lady!

Rosie is almost 9 and I can't believe her energy! I get so many people who tell me they can't believe her age cause she still acts like a pup. Keep it up Mr. B. Exercise keeps you young!

When I ride a bike with my dog I like to use a head halter. It's much harder for them to pull and it allows you to have control over what direction the dog takes.

That's what I was thinking, I had a good time just watching his ears go up and down! ;-)

I love older dogs - they can be energetic, then quiet, meeting all the needs of a household. And Mr. B! needing at least two walks, er, runs a day. Rock on - and yes, I love his ears, too.
