Subaru Provides Dog Driving Lessons, Show Dogs Can Be Like Toonces, Too: Subaru
Subaru unveiled for April Fool's a few years back that it was providing driving lessons for dogs! Really, who wouldn't want to take a long road trip and be able to relax, knowing all was well that Fido was at the wheel? It's something that'd be sure to make Toonces the driving cat proud.
Seriously though, do not let your pets drive...ever. As you might imagine, it's just not a good idea.

Adoptable Pet of the Week: Snowball
To clarify, this is NOT an April Fool's joke, but adoption is a great cause to plug any chance we can get. Wit that said, our adoptable pet of the week is Snowball. He's a handsome boy hailing from New York's Animal Haven. He's neutered and up-to-date on all of his routine shots. If you can, give Snowball a chance at a forever-loving home!
