A Four-Legged Co-pilot, on Flatbush Avenue

Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn Photo by myself on Flatbush Avenue, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

While stopped in traffic Sunday afternoon, we found ourselves next to a guy on a motorcycle and his little jack russell terrier, who was wearing pink goggles.

The little dog was standing on the bike, helped by a wooden contraption. She was shaking but obviously loving the ride.

'A little girl dog?' I asked the biker, while we waited for the light to change. He nodded and gave us a smile.

Flatbush Avenue is the main drag in Brooklyn, right after you get off the Manhattan Bridge. It runs through Downtown Brooklyn and Fort Greene. It's riddled with potholes and terrible, aggressive Brooklyn drivers.

Fancy dog with her sunglasses!

Nice shot. Hope the dog will not hurt. A motorcycle is a dangerous undertaking as I know from own experience.

That's the coolest dog I have ever seen.

Oh my gosh the goggles on the dog are great! Love it!

Hate to be a prude, but it's hard to believe that's safe for the dog. I guess he cares more about being seen.

Weren't the Brooklyn Dodgers nicknamed the Lords of Flatbush?
