And speaking of dogs...

I look longingly at electric scooters but none of them are rated for my weight. Maybe with this plus a husky or three I could get somewhere.

Keeshond.

(Gesundheit. ;)

They are very strong. And fluffy. And share jokes with you. And have catlike paws. Much better.

Ah, but "you can't get N cats to pull a sled" ;-)

That dog-powered scooter looks nifty!

And speaking of dogs...
Finding a scooter is easier than finding transportation for a scooter. My "chair" is actually a scooter. The style gives me a smaller footprint, so I can ride city buses, but my chair and I weigh a slight bit over 650#, which makes me too heavy for the shuttle provided here.

I've got a bunch of links if you'd like me to share. Kaiser ended up getting me this chair, however. My chair is a Merit's Big Boy.

Still, I do love the idea of a dog-powered scooter. I don't think it would get me where I want to go, though, because my dog seems to have a mind of her own.

Re: And speaking of dogs...
Yeah, I hear you - what I lust after is the kind of scooter you stand up on, but the kind you sit in is probably more appropriate for me, or will be soon.

I'm glad Kaiser came through for you.

Hmm...there seems to be an entrepreneurial opportunity here - for dog trainers who specialize in teaching dogs to pull wheeled vehicles.

I've been thinking of doing something like for the 4 years I've had Petey, who's probably strong enough to pull a small car. I've been trying to teach him mushing commands, but he's too busy following his nose to listen to me. He's a pit bull mix, and I often think what he's mixed with is Bloodhound. Now I've got Lucy, too, and maybe she could be my lead dog. What I'm now considering is an adult tricycle, rather than a scooter.

The links page off of the dogpoweredscooter site has a link to a site with various harnesses for the various dog-powered-sports out there. I'm sure some of the harnesses would be suitable for tricycles.

They also have http://www.pounderpits.com/ and they show pit bulls pulling the scooter.
