Check out this item on my local Fox affiliate on how some dog trainers in New Zealand are training dogs to drive cars. That’s right, motoring mutts. Gives a whole new dimension to motor voter laws, doesn’t it? (Pole worker: “Do you have a photo ID with you, Shep? And what is your last name?”) If the practice reaches our shores, will Obama soon be forcing insurance companies to provide free dog treats?
At least Monty won’t be talking on a cell phone while driving. And surely he will be less of a risk on the road than Lindsay Lohan, though with apologies to Monty, that’s setting the bar pretty low. We’re probably all right until a cat or rabbit runs across the road in front of him.
There’s no mention of why these folks, who clearly love dogs and have their best interests in mind, would want dogs behind the wheel of a car instead of hanging their heads out one of the car’s windows lapping air, as God intended. Perhaps people in New Zealand just have more time on their hands than folks elsewhere.
This brings my best wishes to Monty and his furry colleagues. But perhaps dog trainers in New Zealand need to take a time-out and reassess their goals.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
