A German dog named Diego has been living with his beloved owner, 45-year-old Carlos Da Silva, in London for five years. The couple has a hobby – riding together on an old Russian military motorcycle, which Silva has owned for a few years. According to the owner, the doggie is already so used to riding the motorcycle that he gets a lot of pleasure out of it.
Elenice, who co-owns Bravos Motorcycles with her husband Carlos, said: “Diego is such an attention seeker – he loves it. He sits up proudly and poses when he gets in the sidecar, he knows he’s about to get a lot of attention. I think in his head he’s saying ‘yes, I’m here!’ as his ears fly about in the wind. Everyone in the area knows them.”
All the owner has to do is put Diego’s two-meter goggles on and it’s time to hit the road. The couple takes to the streets of London and conquers all passers-by. At any small stop, people run up and take photos with Diego, who doesn’t mind at all and always poses with pleasure.
The process of getting Diego used to the stroller was easy – the smart dog quickly understood what to do, and after a couple of rides, he was already enjoying the breeze while riding.
Carlos and his wife have another German Dane puppy and they are also training him to ride a motorcycle. However, when the couple married in 1999, Carlos’ wife was strongly against dogs. Then they opened a motorcycle business, and only after 17 years of marriage finally decided to get a dog. His wife was terrified of Diego at first, then fell madly in love with him. Then they got another dog of this breed.
