Dogs and Horses
Here’s another period piece from the Popular Science archives. This one comes from September 1940 :
A dog leading a horse on a rope isn’t a new idea. And… it’s also not necessarily a good idea. This is not a trick to try with a green horse or a poorly-trained dog. A quick search of the intertubes brings up lots of video — most of it, IMO, showing excellent examples of what not to do. The clip below was the only exception I found. It shows a small, quiet dog leading a patient horse calmly around the yard – then cheerfully stopping when the horse appears to get tired of the game. It’s very cute but — please don’t try this at home!
