Animals Video

By Harriet Whitehead

This is the hilarious moment a cyclist is snapped giving his dog a PIGGYBACK and wearing him like a rucksack.

Video footage captured the amusing scene as the little Jack Russell dog clung on to the unknown man as he cycled through Middlesbrough last Friday.

Driver Michelle Davies, 44, whose daughter Leah Davies, 17, took the footage on her mobile phone, said she couldn’t believe what she was seeing.

Waitress Michelle from Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorkshire, said: “It looked like a little rucksack.

“There was nothing holding the dog on, he was just clinging on with his front legs over the guy’s shoulders sort of lying across his back.

“I was wondering how he’d managed to get up there.

“I’d never seen them before but apparently they’re quite well known.

“The little jack Russell didn’t look scared at all. It looked totally normal.

“The cyclist saw us and gave us a little wave and smile like it was the most normal thing in the world.

“We decided to film it because it’s not something you see everyday and it made me chuckle.”
