« Part 2: Slow process - but getting there Part 3 of Making of a dog series Part 4: A heady question - need a lesson help »

Still working on the dog scooter. Making a little progress. I have to admit to not being a big fan of those paper plans – but it seems to be going OK. Hopefully my friends niece will like it.


I need to fit the lazy susan mechanism and then I’m ready to do some final sanding and actually putting it together. I’m planning to paint it before I assemble it – in hopes that will help me do a better paint job. (Can always hope.)

Thanks for looking.

Looks good. What is the Lazy Susan mechanism for?

My guess would be that the lazy susan bearing mounts between the seat & the front wheels U frame for the steering. It’s looking good Betsy even tho your not impressed with paper patterns.

You should have had this when you were laid up. It would have been easier to get around! You could have ridden this guy to the mail box and back!!

Nice Job!!

Thanks all!

Lew——that would have made a spectacle! But it would have been fun riding.

Andra – Lee is right – the lazy susan is between the two main portions of the front legs and allows the child to steer the dog around.

Thanks for looking.
