My dog drove off with my golf cart!!
Yesterday while I was putting the finishing touches on our new cross country course and picking up sticks, three of my dogs were "helping" me. Now German Shepherds make great farm dogs and companions, but their "boring work" ethics lack a bit. Reno, our female GSD is always present when I'm working, but repeatedly climbs on the seat of the golf cart and makes faces like "are we done yet". She only sits in the cart when it's stopped, doesn't ride on it in motion. Well, I was almost done and heading home when I stopped for one more stick. I failed to turn off the key to the electric golf cart while I made a quick pick up. Reno had climbed on to the floor, instead of the seat of the cart and layed down - laying on the electric/gas pedal as she did!! I turned around to go back to the cart and there went my cart and DOG bouncing across the field. The look on her face was one of puzzlement...why was I backing away from HER!! When I called her name she jumped up and off the pedal. I hope she doesn't start driving on a regular basis...I'll have a long walk back to the gate!!
