I've been ordering various dog-drawn vehicles recently and last night I assembled the Big Red Mule Wagon. It's quite a bit larger than the other wagons. The heavy wagon that Morgan usually pulls is just large enough to fit Kitty sitting cross-legged and I can hop on the back but we can both easily sit inside this one. Morgan has been so good about pulling various new vehicles on his own recently so I decided to go straight to the team pole for this one and I enlisted Dexter to help.

Dexter was fairly easy to harness and didn't get too spooky about it but I got lulled into letting him go on his own for a bit while I checked the wagon. Dexter started pulling to the side as he often does while we're jogging. Unfortunately I'd put him on the left side so he was pulling into the street. I stopped in the road and switched him with Morgan so that Dexter could pull away from traffic if he spooked. After that we were in good shape. Morgan did all the work while Dexter barely kept alongside but we circled University Place without incident. I mostly walked but occasionally jumped in the wagon.
