While you've probably seen oodles of cute canines in Vancouver, it's rather rare to see one riding a vehicle on its own.
For residents of North Vancouver, however, one local pooch is well-known for her scooter game.
Often seen in the parking lot of Carson Graham secondary school, an American Eskimo dog named Lili steals hearts with her 'a-dog-able' scooting routine. Not only is she talented, but she's also petite, snowy-white and fairly fluffy. As such, Lili makes quite an impression on passersby.
Vancouver Is Awesome spoke to Steven Errico, a local freelance photographer, about a video that he shot of Lili back in October. He remarks that he was driving by the school parking lot when he saw the dog.
"I live fairly close to the school, but I had never seen that dog there before," says Errico. "I was driving by and saw a dog on a red scooter, so we stopped to have a look."
Errico adds that the small pooch seemed to make five or six rotations before her owner would have to adjust the steering.
"It looked like he just had the steering wheel titled in a way that the dog would go in a circle," he remarks. "There was no remote control."
Errico also mentions that the dog seemed to really enjoy the experience, and their tail was wagging the whole time. What's more, he says that a number of people recognized the animal.
Errico shared the video on Instagram, captioning, "Saw this near my house today. You know, I’m thankful for a lot of things this Thanksgiving, but perhaps none more than knowing this exists in the world."
In response, @rhea.rosario commented, "It’s the Carson scooter dog! We love passing by this pup, too."
