Another Day, Another Dog

A dog strikes AGAIN at the Tour. Why is the rash of canine saboteurs not the headlining story??! This time the dog (who looks like a lab of some sort) took out Sandy Casar who won the stage anyway. You can watch the video here. I wonder if we will see dogs showing up at NFL games this year, you know, getting a little revenge for Michael Vick?

Here's what happened:

Casar's spectacular crash occurred after a dog had wandered from the left hand-side of the road which thronged with spectators.

The Frenchman first hit the dog, then the tarmac on a slight descent as the quartet tried to stretch their advantage.

"The dog wasn't on the leash, so of course it surprised me," said Casar, who was left with grazes on his right buttock.

In brighter news, I believe the tour is being led by an Irish corgador named Albert O. Corgador:

Discovery Channel's Alberto Contador retained the yellow jersey with a 1min 50sec lead on Australian Cadel Evans, and 2:49 on his American teammate Levi Leipheimer.

I couldn't find a picture of a crash so here's a picture of me and my snaggletooth:
