These Dogs Might Drive Better Than You...

Not better than me, but better than you.

Three dogs rescued from a New Zealand animal shelter are being taught to drive in an effort to show how intelligent they are - and encourage more people to adopt abandoned pets. The three animals chosen are Monty, an 18-month-old giant schnauzer, Ginny, a one-year-old whippet cross, and Porter, a 10-month-old beardie cross. -Guardian UK

Obviously, no breeds originating from Asian nations were included -- like the Chow Chow or the Pekingese. ;-)

Probably because they didn't want the dogs driving on the sidewalk...

But hey, the most amazing mixtures can already be found at your local animal shelter. My shelter dog is a wonderful, somewhat mysterious mix, and she is so precious!

It's funny how different sized dogs still seem to "find a way"...

Father Tyme:

"Collie + Lhasa Apso

Collapso, a dog that folds up for easy transport.

Perhaps Mitt would be our next president if he had had this crossbreed instead.
