Singapore dogs are now catching up with the latest “trend” in Taiwan as a social media user from the Southeast Asian country recently spotted a cute pet riding pillion with its owner on the road.
The dog wore dark, goggle-like shades to protect its eyes and was wrapped up tightly in a backpack to reduce its risk of falling off the motorcycle.
According to the photo shared on Facebook page, “Dogspotting,” the picture was taken along a road in Toa Payoh, located in the central region of Singapore.
The social media user who shared the post commented that she had “never been this happy at a stoplight” while pointing out that the dog’s cute paws, which were resting on its owner’s shoulder, was the highlight for her.
Local media also reported that dogs sitting on the back of motorcycles were a comparatively rare sight in Singapore. They are more often spotted with their heads poking out of vehicles.
The main objective of the Facebook group “Dogspotting” is for social media users to share snaps of other people’s dogs and share them with the rest of the community where dog-lovers can heap praise on them.
As the page reaches around 1.8 million social media users, the cute dog immediately attracted the attention of many, with one writing that the dog’s “cool factor” is already higher than theirs.
Another dog-lover even dramatically stated that they will now camp out at the site where the dog was spotted in the hopes of getting a closer glimpse of it.
