How do you ride a dog?

To the one who said: "u don't, there to small" U CAN

Most dogs are too small to ride,However there are dogs that can be ridden by children...Bigger breeds of dogs like Mastifs, Great Danes, Saint Bernards and Newfys can easily carry a child on their back if the child weighs under 50 pounds...However it is not something that should be done regulary, because even big breeds of dogs were not physically designed to be ridden like horses,donkeys ect...

Ms. Ride was a paid astronaut selected by, and paid by, NASA. By today's standards, as a highly educated physicist in the space program, she would earn about $100,000 per year as an astronaut, but I cannot say what the income level was at the time of her service in the 1980's.
