How big is your dog?
Mine is big enough, that I can't stand flat footed straddling her at the shoulders (I'm 6'3"). Took her to Petsmart and weighed her for the first time in a long time. And she is a svelte and petite, 205 pounds... 5 year old English Mastiff... She was a hit at Petsmart, and she loves to ride in the back of my Grand Cherokee.

Just a great big lovable fuzzball...

Forget about cars and engines and other complex and expensive stuff, and get ye one uh these:

Put all that dog food to good use for a change!

I've heard of folks calling their kids "tricycle motors", but THAT's brilliant!


That's Chester at 87 lbs.

Not sure if the link in the last post will work, so here's another.

At a massive 16lbs ... Beast may have the speed and the stamina, but just not enough horsepower to be useful. Italian Greyhounds fall short in that department.

That picture took me back... Looks an awful lot like my old girl. Got her when she was middle-aged, so had some fun guessing what went into the mix. Mastiff was one of the top guesses, along with golden retreiver. She was much smaller, though, only about 110 lbs, and loved to ride in the hatchback of the Insight.

Current dog is a scruffy little (by my standards) thing, only about 50-55 lbs, Border Collie & Australian Shepherd mix. Still fun for skijoring (when we have any decent snow): not much help on the uphills, but zips along pretty good on slight downhills.

My last was a tea cup pomeranian tipping the scales at 1.5kg.

God I miss her.... She was the best at meeting girls in the park....

Frank, that cart is awesome! Funny thing, we looked into something like that when she was a mere pup. Maybe I'll fab something like that up. A little sturdier for my fat self, and something to handle some offroad trails even.

We yoosta have pet wolves when I was a kid. I'd take this big Alaskan male out for walks in the winter... if he heard (or thought he heard) a mouse under the snow it was all I could do to hang on. I tried to harness all that pulling power once by sitting on my sled and seeing if he'd go. It was an utter failure- as soon as he heard the sled moving on the snow he'd stop and look back. :rolleyes:

Biggest dog I've ever had - Presa Canario, weighing in around 100 lbs.

Heaviest, Boxer, full champion, about 130-150, depending on what week it was.

When I had my Presa (Bella), I was 18. My size 30 belt would barely fit around her chest. Due to the area I lived in at the time, I wasn't able to keep her. (Presae are a banned breed in many communities and cities.)

The Boxer (El Jefe) Wasn't that large, but he was bulky. And he loved to "box". He'd stand on his back legs and try to swing his front paws at me while I practiced kickboxing. Eventually, I started practicing (jokingly) with the dog... he learned pretty quickly to duck his head and swing afterward.
