Last week we wrote about the shelter dogs who were learning to drive in New Zealand, thanks to the efforts of Auckland’s SPCA. Why were they learning to drive? The official reason was to increase awareness about how smart shelter dogs are, in the hopes to increase adoptions.
The unofficial reason was OMG dogs driving.
Those three dogs — Porter, Monty, and Ginny — did in fact learn how to drive. But the true test came on Monday, when the dogs were tasked with driving the modified Mini around a racetrack on live television. Specifically, the Campbell Live show. We salute New Zealand for bringing some much-needed drama back to live television.
