I had to laugh. 

Rush is Allan's favorite band, but I would have let the little guy listen to something more relaxing.

The dude is lucky the pup didn't drive off somewhere.

Perhaps it can take driving lessons, LOL!

This is different (it is old news), but I like it too:

For one amazing dog, the words "sit," "fetch," and "roll over" aren't the limits of her language -- they're only the beginning. Six-year-old female border collie Chaser has been trained by her owner to understand more than 1,000 words, along with simple sentences.

Chaser's owner, John Pilley, has spent years training and testing the limits of her intelligence. The 82-year-old psychology professor used children's toys and other objects to teach Chaser nouns, and she's still learning new things.

Over the course of three years, Pilley spent four to five hours a day teaching Chaser about new objects and their names. Pilley jokes that he almost had to go to bed at 8 p.m. just to keep up with the Chaser's never-ending energy and attention to the training.

"She was born to live in the Scottish mountains and herd sheep," said Pilley, who is retired from a teaching career at Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C.

Eventually, they amassed a collection of 1,022 objects: 800 stuffed animals, 116 balls, 26 "Frisbees" and other assorted items, each given a distinct name. There's even one stuffed cube, named "ABC."

Glad you clarified about the band. My first thought was the dog was being made to listen to Rush Limbaugh, which I would break a window to stop that kind of cruelty.

I caught a new cable show called The Big Interview with Dan Rather and there is a rather extended interview with Geddy Lee. Might be of interest to Rush fans.

I don't know what you get televisionwise. It's on AXSTV channel. I think they're also got a Ringo Starr episode.
