Do you remember the video of the golden retriever “LiLi” in China that guarded her owners bike while he went into a store, then jumped on the seat of the bike while the owner peddled away, watch it now!
I just adore this video, the dog seems to have quite a sense of humor! I love how she barks when she is “ready to go” We really do need an invention that could let our furry friends ride on the back of our bikes, should they get tired, or just simply not feel like making the trek. We all know what that feels like. With today’s technology, it shouldn’t be impossible. How long have we had child carriers? I think it would take quite a bit of athletic skill to balance the bike with the dog, but in the video, it seems like the dog does her balancing all on her own. This video caused an internet frenzy, and several people are concerned for the safety of the dog. An internet blogger in Thailand, only known as Jeff, started a blog called “Pimp My Seat” to raise money to build a bike for LiLi her owner. The blogs latest post shows they have raised $120.07 as of 5-2-12 7:44 AM CST. Jeff has taken a hit with Youtube over a “cockfighting video” but plans on making his way to China and finding LiLi and her owner, and creating a bike that is safe for them to travel with. Thanks Jeff. Golden Retrievers are worth all the love that they give us each and every day. I am never at a loss for content on this blog about the amazing things these golden retrievers do for us on a daily basis…? I hope that “Jeff” is honest in his quest, and is successful in his endeavor. Stay tuned to my blog for more updates in Lili‘s ride.
