I love the dog; he loves cars

    The dog is really my neighbor's pooch, but I play with him and take care of him so often that I'm practically his second owner.

    Anyway, Deacon is an adorable little pooch. A real ham & goofball, but he has one major problem: whenever his owners drive into or out of the driveway, he insists at running after them. When they're coming into the driveway, he makes a bee-line for the headlights. Now, not only would his owners be devastated if he got hurt, but I'd have to be hooked up to an IV drip of zoloft, prozac and some THC in order to keep myself from going off the deep end.

    I'm asking fellow SportsJournalists.commers to channel their inner Dog Whisperer & help me try to figure out how to break poor Deacon from this dangerous habit.

    Oh, I can't even begin to post this without showing you a picture.

    Cute little bugger.

    But why is he allowed to run loose in an open yard?

    Same question here. Especially a white dog. I'd hate to be the one giving him a bath every other day.

    Yeah, god forbid anyone let a dog off its leash. Kids, too. ::)

    There's an electric fence. He absolutely refuses to go near any of the borders. There's a certain point at the driveway he won't go past either. Sometimes they don't put the special collar on him and he still acts like it is there.

    Is there a reason they can't include the driveway in the area that is fenced off by the electric fence?

    Uh yeah ... in most residential areas, dogs are required to either be inside a fenced yard or on a tether.

    Hey! I was on a leash as a kid and I turned out just ... oh wait, nevermind.

    Super-soaker gun with ice water weilded by both driver and passenger. Windows down, pooch approaches go full blast with H2O. Circle the block and repeat until it ... Uh ... soaks in.
    Works on Shelties anyway.
