No One Mad at Rosie The Puppy for Driving a Car Into a Pond

"After a walk with her owner in the morning, the puppy climbed into the car and got her leash tangled in the gear shift.

"While trying to break free, Rosie fell on the accelerator, sending the vehicle forward, Canton police said.

"The car landed in Bolivar Pond."

—Rosie, a five-month-old German Shepard, was not hurt. [Boston Globe]

It's shepherd. Not shepard. The thing was bred to herd things, not pard things. My future husband's last name is Shepherd and EVERYONE spells it wrong! That is one of the reasons I am not taking his last name.

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

@lizzybeast As a last name, I can see why that's frustrating, since I've seen both spellings. (It's like the last name equivalent of being a Catherine/Katherine/Kathryn.)

As a common noun, though, this is true. But I've got to be honest, even though my job is to catch spelling mistakes and I am currently at the office, I was too distracted by ADORABLE BABY PUPPY to even notice. So I blame the puppy for the spelling mistake.

Our 9 month old Shepherd puppy regluarly jumps into cars through open windows or doors, though she rarely is on a leash and promptly hops into the backseat. Girl loves a car ride.

you're a kitty!

The Killing makes this 1000x funnier
