    Any std rear rack will offer support but you need a Dog Retension System. The most effective DRS is probably a wicker basket. These are very light, do not restrict smell from entering and are resistant to chewing. Look for one with hoops over the top for crash protection, rather than a simple open top.

    It kinda has to be a basket unless you want your dogs bones to be crushed

    Personally I would never take my rat terrier on my bike. I care way too much about it to risk getting her killed in an otherwise simple crash.

    As crazy as it sounds the best way I have saw someone carry their small dog was in some type of a custom back pack. It was cool as hell when I saw it. It had cut outs for it's rear legs in the bottom, cut outs for it's front legs and a cut out for the head. I still wouldn't want to take it on a trail though.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I am assuming that you don't want to take your dog on the trail, right? I am guessing that you like to walk/ride him and want to carry him when he gets tired... I guess what kind of riding you will be doing does matter-

    Here in Texas the best thing is the bed of the truck.

    But I've had this in my favorites for when I finally get a dog. Not for the carriers, but for the doggie life jackets.

    and the picture for this is just too funny... http://www.hunterk9.com/site/870877/product/588

    Trailer or extracycle. If the dog is anything larger than a chihuahua, it's going to seriously screw up the handling of the bike to have weight that high. Also, dogs like to move around unpredictably. Go easy on yourself and get a kiddie trailer, for the sake of the dog's safety.

    I know the Grinch had a nice setup. Not sure if the antlers come standard or not though.
