As shaggy dog stories go, the one about Norman the very bright Briard who is a wizz riding his scooter ranks high on the list.

The clever canine, who lives with the Cobb family in Canton, Georgia, competes in many obedience competitions and received his Companion Dog Title at just 15 months of age after four first place finishes.

But it’s his razor scooter that has remained the pooch’s passion since he was a mere pup when his owner, Karen Cobb, took him out for his first spin.

‘He began playing with the kid’s scooter in the backyard and we thought it would be fun to give him a ride on it,’ says Karen. ‘Then we decided to teach him to push it, and now he loves riding his scooter.’

His scooting antics have already made him popular on the Internet, and his Facebook page has quite a following.

Norman, now 20 months old, has even attracted the attention of television show host and comedian David Letterman and last month made an appearance on Stupid Pet Tricks on The Late Show.

Briards originate from France and their recognised talents include  search and rescue, police work, military work, herding, watchdogging and guarding, but they also also make excellent companions, finding favour with Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson.
