Dog Is Your Pilot?

Last week, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the bill that aimed to make it illegal for a motorist in California to drive with a dog in his or her lap. While I think it's a seriously ill-advised practice to hurtle down the highway at 55-miles-an-hour with an unpredictable, vulnerable ball of squirming fur in your lap (or, for that matter, while talking on the phone, tapping out a text message, peeling an orange, and/or applying eyeshadow), I agree the the Govenator that you can't legislate common sense.

You know what's even worse? People who drive pick-up trucks with their dogs chained in the bed of the truck. That's REAL safe. I FLIP OUT when I see that, it is SO dangerous.

My dog Bubba is a naughty monkey and does whatever he can to try and sit on my lap when I drive. The first time it happened was when I picked him up from the Humane Society, and I was driving home on the Garden State Parkway. I was like, *YIKES!* His original owners must have let him do that.
