A breakdown patrol man who came to the rescue of a woman motorist has managed to get her car started using her dog.

Juliette Piesley, 39, had changed the battery in her electronic key fob but was then unable to start her car.
When AA patrolman Kevin Gorman arrived at the scene in Addlestone, Surrey, he found its immobiliser chip was missing.
Ms Piesley said her dog George had eaten something, and realising it was the chip, he put the dog in the front seat and started the car with the key.
Mr Gorman said: "I was glad to get the car started for the member.
"They will now have to take George [the dog] with them in the car until things take their natural course. "It is the first time that I have had to get a dog to help me to start a car."

good luck finding that tiny glass capsule in a dog turd :|
reports say the key and transponder were reunited today, but the cars running a little ruff :rolleyes:
That's great, that the first time I think any law enforcement officer ever had to do that.
