    I'm guessing the idea for this started with that guy saying something like your signature.

    Re: Monkeys on Dogs Herding Goats

    This isn't really a new concept. Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey was herding sheep on the rodeo circuit at least 15 years ago, probably longer ago. You probably remember Whiplash from the Taco fastfood restaurant chain commercials.

    Keep in mind that all you have to do is train the monkey to hang on. The monkey is also tethered to the dog so he can't get off if he wanted to. The herd dogs herd as they normally would.

    That's pretty awesome. I would guess the monkeys have a lot of fun doing it, not to mention how much self-esteem they gain from being productive and useful members of society.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I refuse to believe this is real until one of these races has a line on the CF betting board.
