Old Letter to Ripleys Believe it or Not About a Poodle Driving a Ford (I Was Almost very Famous)

To: publishing@ripleys.com

To Whom It May Concern,

Hello, my name is Brad. I am writing you to tell you of a fact that I think you would find interesting. About 4 weeks ago I purchased a miniature poodle from a local area pet store. He was about 7 weeks old at the time. It wasn't too long before I started noticing that my poodle, Larry, had some amazing talents. It is almost like he's from another world. He's a regular dog Einstein.

It started when I took Larry to the supermarket with my wife. Just for a joke I told my wife that I was going to let Larry drive my 1987 Pontiac Sunbird. My wife called my bluff. I am no chicken, so I let him take the wheel for about 5 minutes. This is when I realized he was actually very good. He did not obey traffic laws and cut a few turns kind of close, but he was very good.

I was amazed, so I began letting him drive anywhere he wanted. Trips to the supermarket became no problem. He soon began to get on the highway-- I of course had to work the petals. I needed to find a way to help him reach them so he could drive on his own. I did so by fashioning two long canes to the petals so he can just step on them to stop the car when he wants to. This still poses quite a problem for him. He doesn't go much further than the end of the block before he stops. He has gotten much better since putting my wife in intensive care (it was an accident so my wife did not hold it against him.)

If this is something you are interested in, write me back with the address where I can send you pictures and video of Larry driving.
