Man creates riding mower seat for his dog

A Vermont man says he built a special seat on his lawnmower for his dog because she never likes to leave his side.

Henry Ilsley created the seat for his dog, Mia, to ride in using a child’s lawn chair, foam for comfort and wire ties to keep Mia secure.

“When I went to mow, with the lawn mower, she wanted to be right between my legs,” Ilsley said.  “And that wasn't a safe place, so that's why I got the kids' lawn chair and rigged that up so she would have a safe place to ride.”

Ilsley deals with chronic pain and says Mia is a type of therapy dog.  He’s had her since 2007 and says she’s a trustworthy companion.
