    Excuses people come up with. When did dogs get the license.

    Make sure the dog wasn’t driving while intoxicated? Or wait, was it the woman driving and the dog pressing the gas pedal because she was too short?!

      The dog should have been subjected to a breathalizer test.

      We cannot overlook the growing trend of these animals driving under the influence!

      MADD was formed by those mothers recognizing this back in the 70’s.

      Where are the picketters? The commercials? The signs?

    I think they were backing into a spot. If you have a dog running loose it can happen. It will be interesting to find out if it’s dog or human.

    Haven’t they made enough commercials showing dogs driving…Geez

    Was the canine a covered driver on her insurance policy? If not, they shouldn’t cover the damage.

    Looking at the multiple accidents every week that lead to rollovers, life flight evac, and fatalities I’d say the dog is a better driver than many within the county. Maybe driver’s licenses for dogs will become a thing? Democrats already push to give them to illegals so maybe we aren’t too far off from this.

    I bet the dog was driving on a suspended license too. The dog catcher will probably let the dog go again, revolving door.

    She wasn’t drinking, she was trying to get he pokestop at the gazebo on the corner and got distracted.

    Ok, enough with the jokes. The only possible way it happened was. She was backing up and the dog jumped in her lap. Causing her foot to be pushed down on the gas peddle. That is if the dog weighed over 50 lbs
