The star of the event

Riding on a pushbike is nothing new for Coffee. She learnt how to balance on the back of a tredley about four years ago, while living in Sydney.

Coffee is a working dog and I had her riding on motorbikes when she was a young pup, so the whole balancing on bikes thing was nothing new.

Go to just about any property using working dogs in Australia and it's a pretty sure bet that the dogs will all be piling onto the first bike as soon as the engine kicks over.

Coffee is a pretty dog with a pleasing nature and that makes her a bit of a hit with all those who come into contact with her.

Since every man (minus his dog) seems to have cycled the Nullarbor, I had to come up with some sort of challenge that would be a bit different. So the dog on the bike it is!

I am not sure Coffee Dog is really aware of what’s in store and all the preparation we need to do. She is not great with forward planning and therefore she has not staged any protest as yet.

I will keep you all updated as to Coffee's progress in her preparation for this trip.

Till then, Cheers, from Carrot & the Coffee-Dog.
