CHINA -- New video has been released showing a golden retriever named Li Li keeping guard of his owner's bicycle while the owner runs errands. Li Li keeps his eyes and paws on the bike to protect it from thieves.

When the owner returns, Li Li wags his tail in excitement. The owner gets on the bike first then Li Li climbs up on the back of it.

The dog barks once to let his owner know he's safely on the back and the two ride off together.

A blogger who is concerned for Li Li's safety has started a website called "Better seat for the dog." They're taking donations to buy this dynamic duo a safer mode of transportation.
