Dogs are no strangers to traveling. Some embark on long road trips with their owners, while others have calmly made their way through plane rides and trains. But what we haven't seen is a dog living life on the back of a motorcycle. Well, that is until now.
TikTok user @goruffly is traveling across the country on a motorcycle and attached to the back is her dog named Whimsy. This September 13 clip shows Whimsy going on her very first ride. Let's just say she's way cooler than all of us combined. Take a look!

Ok, be honest, have you ever seen a cooler dog than this?! For starters, you don't necessarily see Swiss White Shepherds too often in the U.S. This dog breed was introduced in the United States in the 1970s. And secondly, when do you ever see dogs riding on motorcycles? That's one in a million!
This dog mom is slowly getting Whimspy accustomed to riding on a motorcycle before they venture out to the world together. She first had her dog get used to sitting on the bed that will be attached to the back of the motorcycle inside. The dog even took a nap in it. Then, she harnessed her in and let her get comfortable with it on the bike. When the dog showed she still had energy and focus, that's when this owner took Wimshpy out for her first ride. And by the looks of it, she was having the time of her life! She's about to see more of the world than most people.
As unusual as it is to see a dog on a motorcycle, it's not impossible. In fact, there are plenty of breeds who actually enjoy life on the wild side. The best dog breeds for bike rides include Bichons, Shih Tzus, Pugs, Cavaliers, Havanese, Maltese, and Yorkies. Of course, big dogs can still enjoy motorcycle rides too. It just might not be as easy to fit them in seats unless you have a side car. Just always remember the safety rules such as harnesses and goggles for your fur babies.
