I just got back from roller blading with my dogs. I am absolutely loving it. They like to pull. I'm lazy. It's a match made in heaven. I think tomorrow I'll take just my cocker though. The basset is 10 years old and was clearly fatigued after about 15-20 mins. The cocker was raring to go still. I would blade and he would follow me at a good jog. I tried biking with him, but that was just too fast I guess as we didn't get far before he parked his butt and wouldn't move. I think blading is going to be more productive. I figure he'll pull me about half the way, then he'll be worn out enough to stick right by my side.

That is really awesome. I wish I could do it, but I can't roller blade, and I think my Weims would pull me at lightning speed, which would not end well for me.

I used to roller blade with my Lulu and it was wonderful. she could keep pace with me no matter what and never pulled on the leash. Oliver does alright, though I have not gone in quite some time. My Bear was a problem. lol He went along just as nice as could be until he saw a rabbit. Then I found out how NOT skilled I was on roller blades. I went flying and Bear no longer was my roller blading partner.

I would never try skateboarding. I can barely stand up on one. On roller blades I can go on a flat surface which is pretty much all I'm asking of my dogs.

That sounds like fun. :D I took my dog out running today and had her pull me on my ripstik (you know those skateboards with 2 wheels?) It's a blast when there are no squirells to cross our path...
