Dog Takes Auto Through Car Wash
November 13 | 1 Comment
I’ve noticed that dog stories of like kind come in bunches. That’s why, only one day after writing about the poor driving of two canines, I find yet another story of an accident ‘allegedly’ the result of canine driving error.
This time, it happened in a car wash.
A dog waiting in a car while at a car wash slipped the vehicle into gear and drove in a loop before the car came to a stop.
Pryor police officer Brent Crittenden said the dog’s owner was washing the vehicle when the 70-pound pit bull jumped on the dash and somehow shifted the car into reverse.
The car backed out of the car wash bay, continued onto a highway and then looped around before coming to a stop at an automated car wash lane.
Crittenden said the vehicle was impounded because its owner was unable to provide proof of insurance.
Because the dog was registered with the city, Crittenden said the owner was allowed to walk the pooch home.
I use the word ‘allegedly’ in the intro because, in my mind, the pit bull was just trying to help his owner out. Why would the owner manually wash the car when he could use the automated wash instead? That doesn’t make any sense, especially to us lazy types.
Canine error? Neigh. Human stupidity? Yeigh.
