#1408: Old Moses Blew Beets

Saturday, February 22, 2014

This week on Car Talk, beloved dog meets beloved car, and the results aren't good, as Will's dog Moses gets car sick in his truck; specifically, into the defroster vents. Can Will remove the chunks and the smell, or does he need to sell the truck to someone with a really bad sense of smell? Elsewhere, Kris' husband is a dedicated recycler. Unfortunately, he insists on crushing cans by driving over them, and the noise has Kris wondering if she needs to recycle her spouse. Also, what could make an already brutal Maine winter even worse? Eric's truck horn, which starts honking in zero degree weather, in the middle of the night. And, can Tom and Ray cure novice mechanic Jeremy of his bolt-breaking habit? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

Is Your Dog the Smartest Dog?

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Hounds, Poodles and Bulldogs, oh my! It's that time of year again, when 2500 dogs converge on New York City to take part in the Westminster Dog Show. These dogs may be stylishly groomed and trained to perfection, but are these dogs the smartest in the country? We'll talk with two trainers about canine intelligence and about how they taught their dog “Chaser” to develop a vocabulary of over two thousand words. But first, we need your help. Is your canine particularly clever?

Take part in our "smartest dog" contest. Show off your super smart dog by using the Takeaway iPhone App to upload video and pictures or by adding a picture below. See our video entries here.
