Got a dog? Need to get around? Why not combine the two with "urban mushing"?

You may have read on our sister site, Autoblog, that PETA isn't a fan of the Iditarod dog race. What about "urban mushing"? I happen to have a couple of Doberman's, and my oldest, Ali, happens to LOVE pulling me on my roller-blades. As a matter of fact, it is just about his favorite activity in the world. When it's nice outside, I'll go ahead and let him pull me over to his friend's houses, and we'll spend some time with the other dogs in the neighborhood.

When I saw the picture above, I thought that this activity would probably be controversial. I know that some animal lovers don't believe that dogs should be working for humans in this way. I am not sure if that is true, after all, like I said, Ali loves going on our rides together. What do you think?
