From Jim & Myra of Madelia, MN

We found Louie on Petfinder in Oct. 2008 and went that day to meet him at People for Pets in Spencer, IA. He was about six months old, extremely thin and had just had been cured of a bad dose of fleas. He became an instant member of our family with a great disposition, and he loves to travel. In fact he has visited Glacier National Park as well as Yellowstone, and has walked the shores of Lake Superior at Grand Marais, MN. The only time Louie would seem sad is when I would go for a ride on my motorcycle. So last winter I did some research and found the Beast Rider would be the best answer. The Beast Rider is a custom made basket that attaches to your bike and a harness that attaches your dog to the basket. He can lay down or sit but cannot stand. We don't go very far, just around town or on a quiet country road. Louie sniffs, enjoys the scenery and keeps his goggles on like he was born with them. He enjoys it so much that when we walk past the cycle in the garage he puts his front paws on the seat begging for a ride. Thanks Petfinder and People for Pets for connecting us with Louie.
