Dog drives a motorbike - level 3

Dog drives a motorbike - level 3

If you drove past this, I'm sure you’d do a double-take, and people seem to be on the Internet, too. Yes, you're not going barking mad, this is a dog in complete control of a motorbike and he's cruising around with his owner on the back. We can already see why this has begun to go viral!

Revol Gerungan and his dog Sydney, who's protecting his eyes from any glare on the road with a pair of thick sunglasses, can be seen riding through Manado in Indonesia.

There's clearly a close-in, very trusting relationship between this pair, but they were in fact driving to a place people famously eat dog in. These two are lapping up some limelight at the moment, all because it's something we're not used to seeing, but Gerungan said it’s actually completely normal in Indonesia.

Not sure I would trust my dog to drive me around, but it would be useful.

Difficult words: double-take (to look again, to disbelieve), barking (completely), cruise (to drive), viral (very popular on the Internet), lap something up (to accept something happily), limelight (popularity).
