New Zealand Charity Teaches Dogs To Drive (Seriously)

December 5, 2012


In other news, run over cats are up 400%.

An animal adoption charity in New Zealand has successfully taught several dogs how to drive (including steering, shifting in and out of park, and pedal use) to prove to potential adopters how smart dogs are and how you could never in a million years teach a cat how to drive. I'm joking, my cats already know how to crazy! I dare you -- tear all the toilet paper off the roll again and see who starts using your litterbox. There's a video of the dogs learning after the jump, which you really should watch because a video of a dog driving cannot NOT put a smile on your face. And if your boss walks in on you watching it and asks what you're doing just tell them, "Everything I can not to burn this office to the ground today," and shush them away.

Hit the jump for the worthwhile video.

Thanks to fat piggie, who was really hoping to get his learner's permit but will likely be slaughtered and fried for breakfast instead. Tough break. And to Genevieve, who agrees we need to think bigger and stop teaching dogs to drive, and start teaching them how to FLY.

    How many people are going to adopt these dogs and then make them their designated drivers when they're drunk? Smells like an accident waiting to happen to me.

    The guys voice is so depressing, it sounds like he's about to say "In other news, today my dog died, and my wife left me for my best friend and took everything."

    But...but.....that lady is totally helping the dog steer at the end. So. No. You haven't a dog to drive. You've taught a lady to help someone else drive. And lets face it, they're the ones in need of help, god help us all when there's a lady behind the wheel. Even if she is drunk, which is scientifically proven to improve their cognative abilities ten fold, its a pretty scary thing. I mean. Last time i went for a drive with my mum behind the wheel, she killed 3 people....which now i think back on it, was pretty awesome actually.

    Am I the only one who reads Geekologie now and gets upset because I know that GW isn't writing these posts anymore? I mean seriously, I'm not one to rant but it's clearly evident when GW is writing and when it's just some female ghost writer who likes cats. GW brought an original sense of humor and flair that frankly is starting to vanish from this I feel like I'm just seeing someones terrible imitation of him. Whaaaaatever

    I think its OK if he wanted to outsource some of his workload. A geekologist would be lazily efficient. But rather than have impostors he could have just listed the posts with new authors names.

    Can someone please tell me this isn't true :(
