Merrick Pet Foods has a flash intro on their home page that illustrates a good point — dogs don’t make good farmers.

It shows a dog driving a John Deere 9600 combine through what looks like a 6-foot high lettuce patch. Incongruous as that is, the dog has the unloading auger on and is dumping the seed out behind him as he goes.

I suppose I’ve spilled my share of seed, but there’s no excuse for putting a dog in a combine. And since when do dogs eat lettuce seeds?!
