anyone have one of those plastic kids wagons lying around they want to get rid of?
Kinda like this one?
Or any old skateboards? Aparently bulldogs have a natural ability to use them.

I do but we live in BC so wont help much, keep your eye open for garage sales, or check a kids consignment store for one.
What are you planning to use it for. Are you pulling Odin or is he pulling you. :D

I've seen those movies where the bulldogs skateboard... I wonder if they make doggy knee pads. :)

The wagon is for Odin to be pulled in. We want it more in the case of an emergency, as there is no way we could lift him. But also as he gets older, it would be nice to have him trained to ride in one if we go places, like a farmers market or something.
As for the skateboard, there are a few famous skateboard riding bullies, but a few of our bulldog friends have tried it with theirs, and aparently they take VERY easily to it...
if we get one for Odin, we will take some shots and post them!

Must be that low center of gravity.
From what I've seen, you can pick up skateboards pretty cheap at dept stores. Since I doubt Odin will be "taking it off any sweet jumps," you don't really need a quality board.

Have you tried the Freecycle network? They have stuff for free that people want to pass along and are likely located in your area. Give it a try:
There are tons of freecyclers in Ontario!!
