Golden retriever guards owner’s bicycle, then hops aboard for a ride

In this new video from China, a golden retriever guards its owner's bicycle as curious and amused spectators pass by. When the owner shows up, the very excited dog then actually climbs aboard the man's bike.

But really, this video contains a third wonderful element. After the golden retriever hops aboard the back of the bicycle, his owner waits for the dog to bark, signaling that he is safely aboard. The owner then begins peddling away, with his guard dog in tow.

However, you may have noticed that the golden retriever appears to be balancing on a pretty narrow space on the back of its owner's bicycle. One enthusiastic blogger noticed as well and has already started a site, Best Dog Ever, to help raise funds to purchase a larger and more comfortable seat for this very loyal dog.
