Impatient dog lays on the horn

See also

According to Tuesday's publication of The Courier, an impatient dog in Dundee, Scotland, drew quite a crowd after she decided to lay on the car horn while her owner was visiting a gallery in the area.

The dog, a boxer named "Fern," apparently decided that the best way to voice her displeasure over being left behind was to put her paw on the horn and hold it down - according to witnesses, the loud display of impatience lasted at least 15 minutes.

Fern's owner, 58-year-old Graham Haddow thought that something was amiss as he approached his car and saw a crowd gathered around. He realized that nothing was wrong after glimpsing the smiles and laughter from the people who had surrounded the vehicle.

Graham's wife, Fiona, said:

“It was as if she was saying: ‘Where have you been? I’ve been waiting’.”

The couple describes their pooch as a bit of a "diva," and stated that she had never pulled a stunt quite like this before, noting that they might need to put something in the driver's seat next time to prevent her from trying it again.
