Pets on Wheels IWith gas prices on the rise, many folks have been considering a more eco-friendly way to commute to work, school or the local market. But after spending years behind the wheel of a gas guzzler, making the switch can be a bit intimidating. So, we have collected examples of animals on wheels in the hope that these furry and feathered riders might give you the inspiration you need to go and ride a bike, scooter or skateboard! After all, if they can do it, so can you!
