It's a good thing Mr. Weed was there. What would have happened if the dog saw a squirrel, and tried to drive the car up a tree? I don't know how many times I've heard something like, "That dog goes a little brain dead when he spots a squirrel."

I'll bet Rex would be better than some of the human drivers I've seen on the roads. I doubt he drank and drove, as well.

Well, after all, it is New York City.

Hey, I grew up in NYC, Queens actually, and I learned how to drive there. I drove in the other boroughs, too, including Manhattan.

To paraphrase an old adage, "All's fair in love, war, and New York City traffic."

I'll bet learning to drive was pretty "ruff". 😊
