Astonished visitors to a farm in County Down, Northern Ireland, have been observing a dog helping Farmer Reid plough his fields, trimming the hedges, and spreading muck on a tractor! Not just sitting on the thing, but driving it!
A Ministry of Transport officer also visited this astonishingly clever canine and told the farmer, "if thee dog wants to continue driving he must have a tractor licence, aigh!"
So the farmer asked his dog called, Rambo, if he felt up to hacking it through a driving test, he barked back, "yes!"
So after a few warming up lessons on the farm the big day arrived as a MOT inspector turned up at the farm to test the dog; and he passed paws down!
A slight problem was the theory test, but a dog whisperer was hired to ask Rambo the questions in doggy language, and guess what? He passed without barking an eye-lid!
Farmer Reid is now paying his dog a farm labourer's wage for his efforts on the tractor. Rambo is also learning how to drive a massive combine harvester and Farmer Reid is charging mesmerised onlookers £10,00 for the pleasure!
"It's a win, win scenario, and now I can send all of my East European workers back to where they came from because a dog on the tractor is worth 10 Poles pulling up cabbages!"
