What some people will do for their pets

Woman crashes when teaching dog to drive

Mon Aug 28, 8:19 PM ET

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.

My comments

Who in their right mind would teach a dog to drive? I know you can teach a dog to do almost anything, but to drive?

Let's say you did teach your dog to drive, imagine the possiblities. YOu could sleep on your way to work, providing your dog was a good driver. but the thing is, would the dog knwo what time to pick you up?

I saw a cute T-shirt at work today. Toto wrote Dorothy a letter, from the Wizard of Oz. It said,

"Dear Dorothy,

I hate Oz. I took the ruby slippers. Find your own way home.


I thought that was so cute.

I agree with you. Teaching a dog to drive is a bad idea. What if he sees a cat? What if he wants to chase cars? And we must not forget about fire hydrants.

I bet it was a Shih-Tzu. They are good for Shih-T when it comes to driving.

The T-Shirt is funny. This was a good post, Lamby.

Hey...Just thought I'd come over and say HI :)
I love your avatar~ the little jumping sheep :)

The funny thing in China is that very few people have cars- I wonder if Paris Hilton was actually visiting the country! LOL

The t-shirt was funny :)

Thank you mayden's voyage. And thank you for stopping by.

As rich as Paris Hilton is she may not have even stepped foot in China, unless she hired someone to drive her around somehow.

Thank you for your comment on my avatar. I like it, too. It's different and goes with the screen name.

Thank you for your comment about the cute t-shirt.
