The Laziest Dog Walker on Earth
Dog owner driven to stupidity

When I ran cross country in high school, I was envious of the boys' team because their coach actually ran with them. Our coach had a different approach. He drove behind us in his car, honking once to speed up and twice to slow down. Occasionally, he'd yell out something quasi motivational, like "Work the hill!" We always competed well and even went to state competition one year, so he was doing something right.

Wish I could say the same for 23-year-old Paul Railton of London. A cyclist spotted him driving his car 5 mph while holding onto his dog’s leash as the poor pooch trotted alongside. Was he training the dog for a marathon or something? Of course not! He admitted to police that there was “an element of laziness” behind his actions. Wow, you think?

This guy needs to grow a brain. That's neither smart nor humane!

Wow, this person is pathetic! I say we have him jog along side a car while we drive.
