In a world already full of road hogs this is perhaps the last thing you want to see in the rear view mirror.
Animal experts are teaching dogs how to drive. Astonishingly, it took three mutts just eight weeks to master the basics in wooden carts.
They then graduated to a modified Mini in which they sat on their haunches in the driver's seat with their paws on the steering wheel. Their feet go on extension levers which are attached to the accelerator and the brake while their paw rests on the gearstick.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will put them to the test in a live broadcast next Monday.
