Drama the MTB Trail Dog – The worst

If you want to get cheap views on your mountain
biking videos, just follow this simple formula: Mountain bike + Dog=Views
Actually anything + Dog=Views Type in “trail dog” and you’ll see tons
of pups chasing their owners through mountain bike trails. A trail dog will get you that Youtube cheese,
and I want in. It seems like you need a pretty sporting dog
though, and Drama is anything but sporting. He’s addicted to air conditioning, doesn’t
cooperate, and isn’t very courageous. He can’t even fetch, let alone follow me
through the trails without a leash. Can Drama be a trail dog? There’s only way to find out. We’re pretty sure that todays domestic dogs
evolved from a common ancestor who resembled the gray wolf. It’s said that even handbag dwelling chihuahuas
have wolf blood pumping through their veins. Their ancestors chased things in order to
eat, and that same instinct is alive and well today. In most dogs at least. Drama does seem to follow the person who feeds
him, but that’s the only reason he’d trot behind me at 2 miles per hour. If he were driven by wolf instincts, he’d
care more about actually catching me. He’ll follow for 15 or 20 seconds, and then
get sidetracked to eat grass or pee on something. Drama just can’t stay on task and he has
no sense of urgency. He’s accustomed to getting everything he
wants without working for it, and that might explain his laziness. Maybe he’s just being a bulldog. It’s easy to be fooled into thinking that
Drama is just a slow pup, but that’s definitely not true. After drying off from a bath he loses his
shit. The same thing happens if you try to sweep
or mop something. It seems like Drama just doesn’t care about
chasing bicycles, but I think I know a way to persuade him. Okay, so I think we got a couple of decent
runs out of Drama this way, but I can’t always ride the trails with a broom. Plus it doesn’t hold his interest any longer
than the bike. After 0.1 of a mile he’s done, ready to
drink water and lay around. French Bulldogs do have a tendency to overheat,
so the tropical climate may have something to do with his reluctance to go full pup. Would he feel like running in cooler weather? Your guess is as good as mine. In another YouTube video, I did find a French
Bulldog who seems to enjoy running after mountain bikes. So I think we’ve proven that Drama will
follow me through the trails if I wait up for him every ten feet. Should we give him the title of trail dog? I dunno. My dreams of careening through the trails
with the sounds of my paws pitter pattering behind me were never realistic in the first
place. Drama is more of a shop pup than a trail dog. If I’m working on my bike or editing videos,
he’s always right there. He even co-hosts my podcast. What do you guys think? Do any of you have trail yorkies, or trail
shitzus? How far from wolf lineage can you get before
it’s just not feasible? I want to know. If you like Drama and want to help put him through
college, buy a trail pup shirt, now available on Teespring. Thanks for riding with me today, and I’ll
see you next time.
