DUMB + DUMBER star Jeff Daniels kicked off his New Year (06) by performing an embarrassing gig while covered in dog urine.

The actor/guitarist decided to take his dogs on the road with him for one recent show, but regretted his decision after one of his pets peed on him en route.

Daniels explains, "I had to pick one (of the dogs) up and carry him. He peed all over my pants.

"They were the only ones I brought to the gig, which was five hours away, so I wore them. I got on stage and told the story."
