Often referred to as “man’s best friend,” over countless millennia dogs have been integrated into the daily lives of billions of people. And the dogs are learning too. Over in Russia, stray packs of dogs have learned how to ride the subway between hunting grounds (we’re not making this up, we swear…), and YouTube is stuffed with plenty of video evidence of how dog-kind is evolving.

But maybe they are evolving a little too fast, as this video demonstrates the next obvious evolution of canines; driving. Yes, this is a video of a dog “driving” a Corvette.

The dog in question is a small Pekingese named Dusty who, on a trip between Phoenix and Oklahoma City, had the desire to hop on into the driver’s seat of this late model Corvette. We’re not sure if this is a base model Corvette or something more powerful, but any amount of horsepower should be too much for a dog of any kind to handle.

Yet Dusty seems unfazed by the experience, gazing over the steering wheel at the open road ahead. The perky pup can barely see over the steering wheel, but it is obvious that this dog is evolving at an accelerated pace if it is already learning to drive. What’s next… dogs flying F-16 jet fighters? The end is nigh, friends.
