Dog Drives Car: Bad Idea

Woman Crashes While Teaching Dog to Drive

BEIJING (Aug. 28) AP - A woman in Hohhot, the capital of north China's Inner Mongolia region, crashed her car while giving her dog a driving lesson, the official Xinhua News Agency said Monday.

No injuries were reported although both vehicles were slightly damaged, it said.

The woman, identified only be her surname, Li, said her dog "was fond of crouching on the steering wheel and often watched her drive," according to Xinhua.

"She thought she would let the dog 'have a try' while she operated the accelerator and brake," the report said. "They did not make it far before crashing into an oncoming car."

Xinhua did not say what kind of dog or vehicles were involved but Li paid for repairs.

What she needs to be paying for is a brain transplant....

Every time I leave my dog in the car, to run into a store, Starbucks, whatever, when I come out she invariably is sitting in the driver's seat. I keep telling her she's not allowed to drive until she grows thumbs. I'll have to read her this story...
