Video: Too cute for words - dog helps owner 'pedal' bike

Tanya Reid's 13-year-old Pomeranian Ace has a decent technique - but it's a shame his paws can't reach the pedals...

If you have a dog, you'll know they like nothing better than keeping their owners happy by helping out with various tasks - attempting to prevent the postman from delivering bills or helping recycle the newspaper by giving it a thorough shredding for example.

But here's one we haven't come across before - a 13-year-old Pomeranian named Ace who went for a bike ride with his owner Tanya Reid in Toronto, Canada and mimicked her pedalling action.

The video has gone viral on social media and has been picked up by news outlets worldwide, with Reid posting another clip of her pedalling pup. Enjoy.
