That's quality.

Do you think I'd get arrested if I tried it with my works van?

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

You don't have to be stupid to be wrong, and you don't have to be wrong to be stupid.

I trust those mongrels more than I would those robot driverless Google cages!

If I had one of those dogs, I would spend a lot more time in the pub. He would be the DD, the "Designated Doggy." Although if Bonzo happens to wrap the car around a lamp post on the way home from the pub (which looking at the way the way those dogs drive is extremely likely) I think I`d have a hard time convincing the cops that the mutt was driving.

She said, "You can`t take ANYTHING seriously, can you?" I just laughed.

If people got that much training, they might learn to drive too. Maybe.

Proof, if any were needed, that Kiwis have far too much free time on their hands.

It was a promotion for SPCA to show that any random mutt from the dog shelter can be taught to drive a car.

I intend to outdo them - I'm teaching my dog to ride my Sprint. Stay tuned.
