    Columbian Dog Rides A Motorcycle Like A Boss! (VIDEO)

    Columbian Dog Rides A Motorcycle Like A Boss! (VIDEO)

    This dog looks like he’s having the time of his life as he takes the handlebars of his owner’s motorcycle.

    That’s one of his doggy friends yelping for joy when he passes by at the five second mark.

    And just to prove that they’re better than other dog-driving duos, the two actually make a full U-turn with the canine sitting in front.

    The footage was reportedly shot somewhere in Colombia.

    Watch This Bored Dog Blast A Car Horn (LOL)

    Watch This Bored Dog Blast A Car Horn

    Meet Fern, an 18-year-old boxer.

    Her owners Graham and Fiona Haddow left her in a car while browsing an art gallery in Broughty Ferry, near Dundee. They returned to find a crowd had gathered round the car.

    Fern, who had climbed into the driver’s seat, had been sounding the horn for fifteen minutes.

    “When I got closer I realised people were pointing and laughing and taking pictures, Mr Haddow explained. “She gave me a sideways glance and just kept on going.”

    Fern’s owners didn’t capture the incident, but a local teenager filmed it and shared the video to Facebook.

    From there it made its way to YouTube, before being picked up by Dundee’s The Courier.

    Good for you, Fern. Good for you.

    Dog sent packing after eating owner’s $130,000 Aston Martin

    When is Man’s Best Friend not really Man’s Best Friend? As a Somerset, England man found out, it’s when she’s taking a few bites out of your $130,000 Aston Martin. Royston Grimstead left his home one morning, only to return to find the wheel arch of his British convertible chewed to bits, courtesy of one of his dogs.
    Luce, the four-year-old Border Collie/Spaniel mix guilty of the damage, may have had motive, according to Grimstead. According to the 42-year-old man, he was already trying to find a new home for the adorable dog, claiming it didn’t get along with his other canines.“She must have overheard me because she’s normally friendly and never really chewed on anything before,” Grimstead said.

    Audi Reveals Doberhuahua-Themed Super Bowl Ad For The 2015 A3 (VIDEO)

    Audi A3 Dog Superbowl Commercial

    What does the 2015 Audi A3 have to do with a dog? They both star in Audi’s new ad for the Super Bowl taking place next week. We’re not talking any old dog, though. The dog featuring in Audi’s ad is a Doberhuahua, a mixture of a Doberman and a Chihuahua.

    The Doberhuahua is the result of a couple wanting two different dogs and compromising on one dog with the combined features of the other two. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Audi wants to portray to buyers of its new A3 that they won’t have to compromise on anything.

    While the ad portrays the Doberhuahua as a little scary, there’s nothing overly ferocious about the A3’s base 1.8-liter TFSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine–which produces 170 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque–or the optional 2.0-liter version with 220 hp and 258 lb-ft. Both engines comes with a six-speed S-tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission, and Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system is standard.

    The base price of $30,795 (including destination), isn’t too scary either. That puts the A3 in the ring with the similarly-sized Mercedes-Benz CLA250, which was the star of its own Super Bowl commercial last year.

    On television screens, Audi will compete with Volkswagen and Jaguar, which has drafted its own team of “British Villains” to ensure commercial domination. Oh, and apparently some people will be playing a game of football while all this is going on.

    The Big Game kicks off February 2 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Be glad you won’t have to endure the likely cold temperatures, or the post-game traffic.

    Driving Dogs (VIDEO)

    The SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) in New Zealand have been training three rescue dogs to drive cars. It’s part of a campaign to demonstrate that rescue dogs are just as intelligent, adaptable, and lovable as any other. They hope this campaign will encourage more potential owners to consider a rescue dog as a pet.

    Over the course of two months, the dogs have been trained to perform a series of ten behaviours – in the format ‘paw here, get treat’ – which are then joined together into the sequences of actions that we perform every day to operate a car. The dogs were then tested on a mock vehicle, before moving on to a full-sized car – a specially dog-ified MINI.

    What will our roads look like in the future? Will we look into the car next to us to see a paw resting idly on the steering wheel, a hairy face sniffing at the air? Between that, and Google cars with no driver at all, the future highways are beginning to look a little strange.

    For more information on the campaign, how the SPCA went about training the dogs, and how MINI went about modifying the cars, see the drivingdogs.co.nz site. You can also follow the twitter – @drivingdogs – for updates.
