Who needs hobbits? Can't Post

When you've got dogs that can drive!

The SPCA taught three rescue dogs to drive. Last night they showed off their skills on live TV. There were a couple of hiccups, so they had another chance to impress on tonight's show.
A lot of other dogs (including mine) loved watching them on TV.
I am considering teaching Midgey to drive, although I will need to organise a good booster seat for him. Laugh

LOL [In reply to] Can't Post

Saw that on our morning news today.

Couldn't help thinking, "they bark, they drool, they steal your car" WinkLaugh

Midgey driving! Now there's a cute image Laugh

Bag ENZ Home of the Hobbit *with thanks to cameragod ;D*


One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

Dougal is hilarious. [In reply to] Can't Post

But those driving dogs are priceless - they look *so proud* of what they're doing. :D

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I don't blame Porter [In reply to] Can't Post

for being distracted by Tristam the night before - even I could feel Tristram's nervousness through the TV! (Not that I blame him.)

But would the dogs ever be happy now to sit the back seat when they're being driven anywhere? Laugh

The canine driving apocalypse approaches [In reply to] Can't Post

Keep an eye out next time you stop at the lights, and have a quick look to see who is *actually* driving... Shocked
